REDCap is a browser-based Electronic Case Report Form (eCRF) solution, suitable for Newcastle-led non-commercial research studies. REDCap contains intuitive functionality to build forms, collect data and export into a variety of formats for statistical analysis. Members of a research team can be assigned to different sites and roles to allow for specific capabilities within each individual study.

The original NJRO REDCap system sits on secure HSCN server hosted by AIMES, restricting access to those on the NHS network. The NJRO can also provide an internet-facing REDCap with additional security measures in place, allowing information to be inputted via online surveys directly from research participants. You can read our REDCap Data Security SOP for further information regarding the security of our systems.

Use of an NJRO REDCap instance for a fixed-length project can be available at a cost of £2000 for the HSCN-facing system or £2500 for the internet-facing system, but this can vary depending on the size and type of project. Projects requiring ongoing access will also incur additional charges. The NJRO can also offer support with REDCap at additional cost. Please note that VAT will be charged where applicable.

For more information about using REDCap for your study please visit our dedicated REDCap Project Administrator Guidance page, or contact the NJRO Informatics Team at nuth.njro.informatics@nhs.net.
