Eval11 Session 920: Using Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) for Designing a Data Collection System in the Field

Collecting real-time data securely on a mobile device can pose many challenges, particularly when that data requires HIPAA compliance safeguards. Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) is a secure, web-based application designed exclusively to support data capture for research and evaluation. This demonstration will show how to use REDCap to design field assessments and collect data on an iPad in naturalistic settings such as in-home or in the community. This is a particularly useful way to establish rapport with participants and to ensure safe, secure data collection of sensitive information
