REDCap is a browser-based Electronic Case Report Form (eCRF) system, designed to capture research data from both research staff in medical settings and directly from patients via online tools. The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (NuTH) REDCap is hosted on secure cloud servers held by AIMES, an NHS certified cloud systems provider based in Liverpool, UK. The system is managed by the Newcastle Research Informatics Team, who ensure that patient data is only accessible by authorised individuals and is appropriately anonymised for analysis.
REDCap is typically used to facilitate secure data capture and analysis for research projects including single and multi-site studies, but more advanced implementations include services such as randomisation, pre-screening and electronic consent. The Research Informatics Team can provide access to REDCap or build an entire research project within REDCap, with a costing model based on each individual project.
