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.

New REDCap users should use the following link to complete a brief REDCap 100 Security Training course and submit their electronic REDCap Account Access Request to MICHR. This procedure replaces the previous process that used Adobe Connect and paper based forms.
In accordance with University of Michigan policy, UM students, staff, and faculty will provide authorization via an electronic signature when they submit their access request.
Users from external institutions will provide the name and email address of their 'Authorizing Sponsor' at the University of Michigan. When this External User submits their Account Access Request, the Authorizing Sponsor will receive an emailed link to a REDCap form. In this form, the Authorizing Sponsor can provide an electronic signature and submit the authorized request for MICHR Support to process.
Access to the REDCap database environment usually expires after one year. Generally, the REDCap user must retake the REDCap 100 Security Training course and submit a new access form to MICHR Support to regain access.
