REDCap Consortium

The REDCap Consortium is composed of over 1,400 active institutional partners, including nearly all CTSA institutions and affiliated partners. Partner institutions host REDCap on local servers to support operational projects as well as medical research studies. For more information on the REDCap Consortium click here. C4 has created and will maintain a special instance of REDCap dedicated solely to supporting CTSA Consortium-related projects.

Please make sure you use the correct instance of REDCap – local version for your research projects and C4 version for CTSA Consortium-related projects. If you are unsure please contact for guidance.
