7/15/14 Terri Shkuda Research Informatics
Import data in Rows/Columns When importing Longitudinal data, must include event name For all multiple choice you need to import codes If you have any Multiple Answers (checkboxes) questions, REDCap will record a “0” for each possible response until you edit the field later by checking the response (of which it will then convert to a “1.” Even if you import a data collection form where this question hasn’t been answered (or the form has not even been completed), it will still import 0s for each of the unchecked responses. Variable names must match between REDCap and CSV file
Study ID must be first column Cannot import calculated fields, also when you import data that is used in a calculated field, you will need to save the form containing the calculation in order for it to be saved to the database. If a value already exists in a field and then you import a file that contains an empty cell for that field, the value will not be deleted. You can only delete responses by editing the form within REDCap. Fields do not need to be in order. Not all fields must be in import file.
Custom Record Label and Secondary ID can be displayed if enabled. Columns are ordered first by Arm, then Event, then Form name. Can visually see records on multiple arms Enabling floating headers (only for the current page) Arm 1 Arm 2 Arm 3 Event
New Features The Survey Queue ◦ REDCap provides a link to the Survey Queue instead of individual surveys. ◦ Using conditional logic, specific surveys will display for the participant based on a criteria. New Reporting/Export Tool ◦ Customized access by users, DAGs and reports can be limited to viewing and/or exporting. ◦ Field choices to include ANDs and ORs ◦ Filter by Record or DAGs
New Features PROMIS (Patient Reported Outcome Measurement Information System) CAT forms (Computer Adaptive Testing) ◦ A questionnaire that will result in a score to determine the patients’ state of wellbeing or suffering, ability or lack of ability to function. It is NIH funded. ◦ The questions offered adapts to the patient based on their prior responses. ◦ REDCap will return the score of the CAT form along with the data.
Improvements Use of datediff in DQ module Will allow tabbing to checkbox and not skipping over for data entry Field comments can be edited and deleted and the editing/deleting can be enabled from the Optional Customization menu New privileges added to Data Resolution: 1) open only, 2) open and respond Field comments and Data Resolution comments will be logged. Users with read only rights can add/edit/delete the Field Comments on the form For Yes/No and True/False, the Add New Field will display the choices and their coding Lock/E-sign status on Record Status Dashboard Copying a Production project will all that user to have User Rights access. Radio/Dropdown now are displayed in PDF as circles rather than squares (no longer confused with checkboxes)
