What can REDCap be used for?

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 various data collection strategies. 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.


Who can use REDCap?

Barwon Health’s REDCap system is open for all employees and can be used for research, quality improvement activities, and operational support. You can access REDCap here.

If you are not already a user of REDCap, please complete the user registration form linked on the Barwon Health REDCap homepage.

External researchers are encouraged to use their own institution's platform, however access can be arranged for collaborative projects (a Barwon Health sponsor is required to oversee external accounts. Contact the REDCap administrator for more information).


Where can I get help with REDCap?

The REDCap administrator can assist with basic training and troubleshooting. Please email [email protected] with questions or to arrange a time for a training session. Training sessions are also available through Intersect Training, and basic video tutorials are available here. Note: Google Chrome should be used when accessing REDCap for optimal functionality.
