REDCap

HealthMeasures are currently available in many data collection tools.

REDCap (https://projectredcap.org/) is a secure web application for building and managing online surveys and databases. It is a great solution for research and clinical data collection as it supports multiple types of data, can utilize a study calendar, and calculates descriptive statistics.

The REDCap Library uses the Assessment CenterSM API and therefore includes most self- and proxy-report HealthMeasures including PROMIS® and Neuro-QoL CATs. Scores are automatically calculated. Within the library:

  • “Adaptive Instrument” is a computer adaptive test.
  • “Auto-scoring” means the measure is a short form and a total score will be calculated.
  • You can use REDCap for data collection of custom PROMIS, Neuro-QoL, and ASCQ-Me short forms and have those measures scored with the HealthMeasures Scoring Service by following these instructions>>

REDCap is hosted by Vanderbilt University and is available at over 2,400 institutions. Contact the REDCap team at redcap@vanderbilt.edu.
