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 https://redcap.stanford.edu/ 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 http://medrio.com/m_edu and click on "New Study".
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.
