All RVH investigator-led research studies that involve the collection of personal health information at the RVH requires investigators to collect and manage this information using REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture). This requirement does not apply to external investigators or industry-sponsored research, which may use their own data collection tools for the conduct of the study.

REDCap is a secure web application designed to support PHIPA/HIPAA-compliant data capture for research. The system supports secure auditing for tracking data manipulation and permits seamless exporting of de-identified data to commonly used statistics software (e.g., SPSS, stata). 


REDCap is hosted on secure servers located at RVH and is backed up in a manner similar to other patient data.  Access to the study data in REDCap will be restricted to the members of the study team using a username and password authentication system (a Gmail™ account is required).


If you are interested in using REDCap for your study, you can access REDCap directly and request access.
