REDCap Citation for Lifespan Security and Infrastructure:

Data will be collected and managed using the REDCap electronic data capture tools hosted at Lifespan’s Department of Information Services. REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a secure, web-based application designed to support data capture for research studies, providing: 1) an intuitive interface for validated data entry; 2) audit trails for tracking data manipulation and export procedures; 3) automated export procedures for seamless data downloads to common statistical packages; and 4) procedures for importing data from external sources.The Lifespan REDCap infrastructure is composed of two-production and two-test servers, all of which are backed up daily. Backups occur every night and are retained for 35 iterations. In addition, long-term backup occurs monthly and is retained for 7 years offsite. REDCap data storage servers are located behind a firewall and are virtual. This architecture was designed by network engineering and approved by IS Security
