Our Mission

The Electronic Data Capture (EDC) core within College of Medicine Research Information Technology supports and provides consultation on a repertoire of electronic tools to help ensure robust, valid and reliable data collection for both clinical and nonclinical studies. These tools include REDCap, Qualtrics and EHR-to-EDC, and they are used to support project data collections ranging from simple surveys to longitudinal data capture, quality improvement and workflow tracking. EDC also maintains REDCap documentation and Qualtrics documentation for researchers using those platforms.

Why consult Electronic Data Capture (EDC)?


Robust, valid and reliable data collection

Data collection tools such as REDCap often present multiple ways to solve to a problem. EDC experts can help researchers distinguish between seemingly equal solutions. Knowing the best way to implement a survey leads to less recording, significant time savings and greater usability of the form.


Customizations for data collection

After getting started with a basic REDCap build, researchers may want to consult EDC for add-ons or more custom features. EDC can bring REDCap projects the extra mile, and they will use their knowledge of REDCap to seek out advanced modules to meet study needs.
