REDCap Tips & Tricks

Are you using Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap)? REDCap is free, HIPAA-compliant, web-based software available to researchers and study team members at all Tufts CTSI partner institutions. To request an account, please complete our online form and be sure to select REDCap Database Account.

To get more out of REDCap, follow our helpful tips, including these:
  • When creating a project in development mode, it is a good idea to test your instruments by entering data into your forms. Once you have completed the project's instruments, you can then move the project to Production status and have the option to delete all test data.
     
  • When the project is in production mode and significant changes need to be made, it is wise to copy the project and make changes to the copy. This way, you can test all new branching logic or calculated fields without affecting the Production Project.
Need some one-on-one help with using REDCap? Come to a Drop-in Session, every Wednesday from 8:00-9:00AM.
