 INFO: Get Started with REDCap

In collaboration with the Harvard Catalyst | The Harvard Clinical and Translational Science Center, REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a free, secure, HIPAA compliant web-based application hosted by Mass General Brigham Research Computing, Enterprise Research Infrastructure & Services (ERIS). Vanderbilt University, with collaboration from a consortium of academic and non-profit institutional partners, develops this software application for electronic collection and management of research and clinical study data. Data collection is customized for each study or clinical trial by the research team with guidance from ERIS REDCap administrators.  More about REDCap on our website.

HOWTO: Access REDCap

REDCap Website:

Mass General Brigham employees have access to REDCap using their username/password.

To request access for users that do not have a Mass General Brigham username and password: Adding External Users to REDCap.

REDCap is a web-based application and can be accessed using popular web-browsers (Safari, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox…). REDCap is compatible with PCs, MACs and mobile devices.

Because REDCap is available outside the Mass General Brigham computer network, access REDCap ONLY:
- on secure networks (ex: Mass General Brigham intranet, password protected wifi)
- from Mass General Brigham workstations or compliant desktops/laptops/devices
