@What is REDCap?
- REDCap is a secure web application for building and managing online surveys and databases. It is geared specifically to support online or offline data capture for research studies and operations. Please visit the official REDCap website for more information.
- Edson College administers the REDCap service separate from Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions & College of Health Solutions.
- At this point, we do not provide any supporting service for Qualtrics yet. To create an account on Qualtrics, please go to ASU Qualtrics.
- Another option for online data collection is QuestionPro which might be available to ASU employees and students in the coming years.

@REDCap User Policies (updated on December 8, 2020)
- To create an account, you need a "sponsor". Your sponsor will be in charge of your activities on Edson REDCap and should be a faculty member at Edson College. Postdoctoral scholars, university staff (e.g., project manager), or undergraduate and graduate students cannot sponsor any other REDCap user(s).
- Your application will be processed within 72 hours of submission (excluding weekends).
- After creation, your account will remain active until the end of each semester. At the end of the semester, your sponsor will make a decision on whether your account will remain active or not for another semester.
- Please re-submit the online application form again (click HERE), in case
- you created an account before but the account is not active (suspended) now
- you need to change your sponsor
- HIPAA training is not mandatory but strongly recommended (please see below for details).
- The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal law that required the creation of national standards to protect sensitive patient health information from being disclosed without the patient’s consent or knowledge (CDC).
- All REDCap users are encouraged to take the HIPAA Lite training, and your certification is valid for one year. We strongly recommend you take the HIPPA training annually, especially if your project(s) includes any health-related information.
- You can find the link to the HIPAA lite training and more on ASU and HIPAA webpage.
- Training on REDCap is a part of the RISE Webinar Series: click HERE for details (registration required).
- The center for biomedical informatics and biostatistics at the University of Arizona also provides training on REDCap at three levels: click HERE for details (registration required).
- Institute of Translational Health Science (ITHS) at the University of Washington offers several online courses on REDCap: click HERE for details (registration required).
@External Modules for REDCap
- External Modules (EM) are individual packages of software that can be enabled on your project. In general, EM extends REDCap's functionality, behavior, and appearance in creative ways. Modules are developed by members of the REDCap consortium, not by the primary development team at the Vanderbilt University, which are then curated and released through the Vanderbilt repository.
- You can find the list of currently available EM at the repository of External Modules. A detailed explanation of each EM is provided on GitHub. Please click "View on GitHub" next to the EM title for details.
- Please keep in mind that you would be able to enable EM on your project once it is downloaded and installed by a REDCap Administrator.
- Please contact the REDCap administrator (email@example.com) or request a consultation (click HERE)
- if you wish to enable any EM on your project
- if you are interested in some EM but not sure which EM to use for your project
- REDCap Mobile App (Android & iOS): The REDCap Mobile App is a tool for data collectors needing to capture data offline. Data can be collected on the REDCap Mobile App on an iPhone, iPad, or Android phone or tablet.
- MyCap (Android & iOS): MyCap makes it easy for researchers to capture participant/patient reported outcomes using mobile devices. For more information visit: https://projectmycap.org/
