SMPH REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a largely self-service, secure, web-based application used for building and managing data collection forms. REDCap provides data management functionality by allowing the development of electronic instruments and surveys to support data capture for research studies, including those that involve protected health information (PHI).
- An intuitive interface (with optional data validation for data captured on forms and surveys).
- Audit trails for tracking data manipulation and export procedures.
- Export procedures for seamless data downloads to common statistical packages (e.g. SPSS, SAS, Stata, & R).
- Reporting capabilities.
- Procedures for importing data from external sources.

The cost of using REDCap for your research electronic data capture needs is $200 per REDCap project per year. The REDCap fees will be charged when the project initially goes into production, and annually thereafter.
NOTE: One clinical research study could use multiple REDCap projects to address the study specific research data capture needs. The cost is per REDCap project, not per study, therefore one (1) study that uses five (5) REDCap projects to collect research study data will cost $1000/year ($200/project/year x 5 projects = $1000/year)
Projects NOT considered research and NOT requiring IRB review/approval (i.e. for administrative purposes) can use REDCap at no cost.
LicensingREDCap is licensed through the REDCap Consortium. The REDCap Constortium is comprised of institutional partners representing Clinical Translational Science Award (CTSA) institutions and other research oriented centers and facilities around the world.
