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 cost, which can vary depending on the size and type of project. The NJRO can also offer support with creating a project in REDCap at additional cost.

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.
