Just wanted to provide some background for tomorrow's REDCap demo that will be provided by Diantha Howard.
REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a software toolset and workflow methodology developed at Vanderbilt University for electronic collection and management of research and clinical trial data. UVM has joined the REDCap Consortium and offers both applications (REDCap and REDCap Survey) to UVM/FAHC researchers. More information can be found at the following Web sites:
The attached article also provides additional details:

Research electronic data capture (REDCap)--a metadata-driven methodology and workflow process for providing translational research informatics support.
J Biomed Inform. 2009 Apr;42(2):377-81.
The CCTS Informatics Unit is aiming to start providing REDCap Training Sessions to investigators in the coming months and would like to pilot this session with the CROW group. Any feedback regarding the content and format afterwards will be appreciated.
Hope to see you there!
