Research Data Management(REDCap)

The CTSC Core Informatics Group, located in the Payson-2 wing at 525 East 68th Street, provides both standardized software and customized programming to support data management activities for clinical/translational studies. The group is directed by Elizabeth Wood, MS, Associate Director of the Biomedical Informatics Program within the CTSC.

Our standardized software is REDCap. REDCap is a PHP-based system, developed by Vanderbilt University and currently managed and updated through a national consortium, that supports the rapid setup of secure, Web-based study-specific database systems and associated forms. It provides full field validation capabilities (customized to each study), import/export (including export to common statistical packages such as SAS, SPSS and Excel), and file upload/management functions. It includes a complete suite of features to support HIPAA compliance, including a full audit trail, user-based privileges, and integration with the institutional LDAP server. REDCap is available free of charge to any clinical/translational research study being conducted at Weill Cornell or any of its CTSA partner institutions.

Many studies can be supported with REDCap alone. For those studies that require a higher level of complexity and/or customization than is readily supported by REDCap, programmers experienced in clinical research data management are available through the Core Informatics Group. Depending upon the nature of the study and the extent of its needs for customized programming, a charge-back arrangement may be required.

Please contact Jessie Lee, MS (Research Data Management Project Manager) for more information on data management resources.
