- Software & Applications
REDCap is a secure, web-based application for building and managing online surveys and databases. Using REDCap's stream-lined process for rapidly developing projects, you may create and design projects using 1) the online method from your web browser using the Online Designer; and/or 2) the offline method by constructing a 'data dictionary' template file in Microsoft Excel, which can be later uploaded into REDCap. Both surveys and databases (or a mixture of the two) can be built using these methods.
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.
Note: All that is required to use REDCap is a UMKC SSO (single sign on). Additional registration is not required.

If you are performing human subjects or biomedical research, please use the REDCap installation managed by the Center for Health Insights (CHI). The CHI site offers templates for grant proposals, IRB submissions and a schedule of REDCap training events that are available for all REDCap projects, including those that do not involve human subjects or biomedical research.
