H3Africa Participant Recruitment Data Base
REDCap is a mature, secure web application for building and managing online surveys and databases. Using REDCap’s stream-lined process for rapidly developing projects, you may create and design projects using 1) the online method from your web browser using the Online Designer; and/or 2) the offline method by constructing a ‘data dictionary’ template file in Microsoft Excel, which can be later uploaded into REDCap. Both surveys and databases (or a mixture of the two) can be built using these methods.
The H3APRDB is a reporting interface designed for H3Africa Principal Investigators and Funders to track participant recruitment at multiple levels: site; project and consortium as well as providing built in graphical output summaries, allowing both stakeholders to conveniently assess progress and identify problem areas.
