Study Databases

Your research data is far to valuable to risk storing it in Excel. Prevent data corruption and inadvertent disclosure by storing it online as a virtual private study database using Research IT's secure tools and services.


REDCap is a largely self-service secure online clinical research study database platform. Researchers can sign up and get started by simply browsing to and logging in with their SUNet ID. This online system is ideally suited for relatively simple studies with a fixed duration and pre-determined protocol for study visits.  It is possible to extend and customize the system, so if you need REDCap to behave in a new way, contact us for a consultation to get a quote for custom programming services.




Medrio is a fully featured commercial product licensed for use at Stanford, and is available for use without charge for investigator-initiated, university or government sponsored research. To get started visit and click on "New Study".


Database Hosting

Research IT runs several study databases that were custom-built to suit the project's specific needs. If you have a project that does not seem to be a good fit for our existing tools please contact us for a free consultation in which we will assess your project scope and develop a cost quote.
