REDCap integration


REDCap is a secure web application for building and managing online surveys and databases. While REDCap can be used to collect virtually any type of data (including 21 CFR Part 11, FISMA, and HIPAA-compliant environments), it is specifically geared to support online or offline data capture for research studies and operations. The REDCap Consortium, a vast support network of collaborators, is composed of thousands of active institutional partners in over one hundred countries who utilize and support REDCap in various ways.

The REDcap integration web app integrates a REDcap Project with a Project on Management Portal linking corresponding subjects in both systems. This ensures that personal identifiable data is kept securely in REDcap (out of RADAR-base platform) and linked via Pseudonymised Data (Human Readable Ids and UUIDs). The non-identifiable sensor data is stored in the RADAR-base platform.

How does it work ?

Upon receiving a Data trigger request from REDcap, the service verifies whether the trigger is related to the REDCap enrolment event. If so, it triggers a Subject creation in the RADAR-base Management Portal. After creating a new subject, the service updates the RADAR REDCap RADAR Enrolment form adding:

  • RADAR-CNS Subject Identifier: unique identifier within the a RADAR-CNS Platform instance
  • Human Readable Identifier: unique identifier used for visualising data At the end of the process, the RADAR Enrolment will become COMPLETED.

The RADAR Enrolment establish a relation between data stored in REDCap and data stored in the RADAR-CNS Platform.
