What's new in REDCap:


ALERT: REDCap's native e-signature feature is not authorized for use at UCSF since it currently does not meet the University's legal requirements for e-signature functionality. Docusign is the recommended solution for e-signature functionality at UCSF.


REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a HIPAA-compliant, secure web application for building and managing online surveys and data collection instruments, provided without charge to the UCSF community and its collaborators. REDCap was originally developed at Vanderbilt University, with grant support from the National Center for Research Resources, to provide research teams with an intuitive and reusable tool for collecting, storing, and sharing data. UCSF is a member of the REDCap Consortium which is composed of 1,736 active institutional partners in 97 countries who utilize and support REDCap in various ways. Due to the popularity of REDCap with UCSF researchers, UCSF is in the top 10 institutions in the consortium for level of utilization of REDCap and #2 in level of utilization of the REDCap mobile application.
