Hello, REDCap Users!
We wanted to let you know that the ICTS is incrementally adopting I-CART, an online one-stop-shopping experience that will allow you to browse our services and efficiently manage all of your ICTS-related research requests and services.
Starting May 13th, 2015, all new biomedical informatics service requests will need to be processed in I-CART. We are also working to add administrative, biostatistics, clinical research support, and community engagement services to I-CART during the next few months. We realize that this is a big change and we appreciate your patience when learning this new tool that will enable you to better manage and organize your study.
If you have any questions about how to request or browse biomedical informatics services, please contact iCartHelp@healthcare.uiowa.edu and we will be happy to assist you.
Welcome to REDCap!
REDCap is a mature, secure web application for building and managing online surveys and databases.
Using REDCap's stream-lined process for rapidly developing
projects, you may create and design projects using 1) the online method from your web browser using the Online Designer; and/or
2) the offline method by constructing a 'data dictionary' template file in Microsoft Excel, which can be later uploaded into REDCap.
Both surveys and databases (or a mixture of the two) can be built using these methods.
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.
Reminder: When requesting and using ICTS services that you agree to acknowledge the NIH and CTSA grant number U54TR001013 in any and all publications, presentations, patents, and projects resulting from directly funded research.
