Welcome to REDCap!

REDCap is a secure web platform for building and managing online databases and surveys. REDCap's streamlined process for rapidly creating and designing projects offers a vast array of tools that can be tailored to virtually any data collection strategy.

REDCap provides automated export procedures for seamless data downloads to Excel and common statistical packages (SPSS, SAS, Stata, R), as well as a built-in project calendar, a scheduling module, ad hoc reporting tools, and advanced features, such as branching logic, file uploading, and calculated fields.

Learn more about REDCap by watching a brief summary video (4 min). If you would like to view other quick video tutorials of REDCap in action and an overview of its features, please see the Training Resources page.

NOTICE: If you are collecting data for the purposes of human subjects research, review and approval of the project is required by your Institutional Review Board.

If you require assistance or have any questions about REDCap, please contact REDCap Administrator.

Information Notice

Please be advised, there is an active project looking into a WA Department of Health (WA DoH) instance of REDCap that may become available for use by all Health Service Providers in the near future. At this time, there is no change in the arrangements for the hosting of projects at Telethon Kids. If the WA DoH's REDCap instance comes online, you may wish to transfer your project to this, moving it off the Telethon Kids Institute's instance and infrastructure.

Please be aware, that while REDCap does have project level migration (export/import) functionality that will aid migration to the WA DoH instance, the functionality is not comprehensive. Additional technical support (on a cost-recovery basis) may be required to migrate projects where certain functionality has been enabled, as the export will not create an exact duplicate of all project settings and logging.

Teams using the following modules/customisations in their projects may find that they are unable to seamlessly migrate their projects, and if they wish to do say, they will need to engage in technical support to achieve this:

Scheduling module
Event and Arms

Tracking of survey responses
