  • REDCap Database Environment
Skip to end of metadata
Go to start of metadata

REDCap is an electronic data capture (EDC) system that is secure, HIPAA compliant, and web-based. This easy-to-use, no-cost tool for University of Michigan clinical researchers is intended to replace Microsoft Excel and Access. Using REDCap's stream-lined process for rapidly developing databases, you may create, design, and manage your clinical research data online. Further, REDCap provides automated export procedures for seamless data downloads to common statistical packages (SPSS, SAS, Stata, R) as well as a built-in scheduling calendar, ad hoc reporting tools, and advanced electronic data capture form features such as branching logic, file uploading, and calculated fields. See the MICHR REDCap website for more information.

REDCap Access

REDCap database environments use Michigan Medicine (Level-2) credentials for authentication.

MSIS only provides access to the REDCap training materials hosted on the Adobe Connect service; the REDCap database environment itself is managed by MICHR Support and they should be contacted at with any questions regarding the REDCap environment.

REDCap Training Materials

REDCap training modules are hosted on the UMMS Adobe Connect server. The MICHR REDCap website contains instructions for individuals to request access to the training materials. Although the website is public facing, the course material is not applicable to non-UM personnel as the REDCap 100 Training module only covers University of Michigan access policies and account request information. Individual study teams take responsibility for policy / compliance and coordinate access requests for external users with MICHR Support directly rather than having external users take the REDCap training module; typically the study team provides study-specific training for external users.

REDCap Access Expiration

Access to the REDCap database environment usually expires after one year. Generally, the REDCap user must retake the training module in Adobe Connect and submit a new access form to MICHR Support to regain access.
