We used it as a one-stop shop for any type of wellness appointment that our patients had including a health check, nutrition consult, fitness consult, tobacco cessation consult, etc. It allowed us as the healthcare professionals to get an overview of the patient's health record prior to meeting them one on one.

Very easy learn and use!,Some of the reporting could be very confusing and inundated with information that was not necessary or needed. There were very specific parameters that you had to set in order to export the exact data that you were looking for. In some cases, not all, it could take a very long time to get approval to make any sort of portal changes, such as adding a second date option or adding a field. Sometimes this would mean certain patients would have a specific type of record and others would be missing it.,8,REDCap allowed us to house all patient information in one single portal which helped us eliminate the need for paper copies. We moved our whole filing system to an electronic version when we became "live" on REDCap. It is also very convenient and accessible to have all of this data in one location. A very positive impact is the ability for multiple users to see the same health and wellness information for each specific patient. Instead of constantly having to go back and forth via email, phone, etc. to ask about the patient; we could simply look up their information in REDCap and find all of the answers. It made our business much more efficient and made the patients feel as though we did our research prior to meeting with them.,Microsoft Access,Employee Surveys

  • Customization. I can use HTML to change format but there are also a ton of built in functionality for branching logic, matrix configuration, slider scales, etc.
  • Security. HIPPA compliance is extremely important for medical research and REDCap ensures our data is safe.
  • Variety of use. Being able to send both surveys and create forms for internal use makes the use cases numerous.
  • Format options built in, instead of having to use HTML code.
  • User maintenance can be difficult with collaborators outside of your institution.
Our main use has been for research studies. It allows HIPPA compliant data collection with a vast amount of customization options, branching logic to keep collection clean, and validation to ensure data collected can easily be analyzed. We can send surveys to participants in between visits and use forms for in person visits where a staff member is collecting the information.

In a healthcare based setting, where you need to keep all of a patient's health history and documentation in one place, it is very well suited. I would also see if to be beneficial to keep track of participation in certain programs.
