REDCap is a secure web platform for building and managing online databases and surveys.
REDCap's streamlined process for rapidly creating and designing projects offers a
vast array of tools that can be tailored to virtually any data collection strategy.
REDCap provides automated export procedures for seamless data downloads to Excel and common statistical
packages (SPSS, SAS, Stata, R), as well as a built-in project calendar, a scheduling module, ad hoc reporting tools,
and advanced features, such as branching logic, file uploading, and calculated fields.
• REDCap should NEVER be used as a documentation substitute for patient treatment or an extension of patient treatment received in a Seton facility. The appropriate medical record system must be utilized (COMPASS, Athena, etc.).
• REDCap is administered by Seton Analytics & Health Economics for usage by the entire Seton community. Seton's REDCap implementation may be used for research and quality/performance improvement (QI/PI).
• If you have any questions about conducting research at Seton, please click here to visit Seton's Office of Research Facilitation (ORF) or call (512) 324-8389.

b. Vickie Paterra, Sr. Director of Corporate Responsibility & HIPAA Privacy Officer (512-324-3280)
• A template for describing use of REDCap in Seton IRB applications can be found on the Seton REDCap Informational Site.
