DU REDCap Support

How do I get access to REDCap at DU?

Does your lab already use REDCap?

  1. To get a DU REDCap account, please have your PI/project administrator email to request access. Please provide your:

    1. Name

    2. DU ID number (your 87* number)

  2. Once you have a REDCap account, your project administrator can grant you user rights to your lab's projects.

Does your lab want to get started using REDCap?

  1. Email to set up a consultation where your PI can talk with REDCap support about whether REDCap is a good fit for your project.

Don't have an 87 number/DU ID number?

If a research project member doesn’t have a DU ID#, your PI can submit a Special Community Member Form to Human Resources. Please keep in mind this process can take several weeks or more, because it requires department signatures & background check by Shared Services.

The DU REDCap license

REDCap was originally developed at Vanderbilt University for medical research, and is now supported by the REDCap Consortium, of which DU is a member.

We're licensed to use REDCap solely for non-profit work.

Publications resulting from REDCap use need to cite this 2009 Harris et al paper.

REDCap in a nutshell

What is REDCap?

REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a secure, web-based application designed to support data capture for research studies. Data entry happens online, either by participants who fill out surveys, or by project team members logged into REDCap (databases).


Why consider REDCap?

Data security. REDCap and our DU REDCap server are HIPAA compliant.

  • Audit trails (automatic, continual documentation of all data and user activity) protect your data AND you.

Centralized, online access means you and your team can access your projects from any internet-connected device.

Data quality. Built-in tools help manage data collection, which helps ensure the quality of your data.
