    REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture)

    REDCap is an on-premise, secure web application for building and collecting data via case report forms (CRFs) and online surveys. While REDCap can be used to collect virtually any type of data, it is specifically geared to support online or offline data capture for research studies and operations.

    The UConn Health instance of REDCap meets the technical requirements of HIPAA. We have also implemented many of the administrative requirements, but IT Security must certify the system for your specific study. This may incur an additional cost to conduct an annual risk assessment.


    Qualtrics (Online survey tool)

    Qualtrics - Hosted by UConn Storrs, Qualtrics allows researchers to self-author, distribute, and collect data efficiently, with a faster turnaround for researchers.

    Microsoft Bookings (Appointment Scheduling Application)

    Microsoft Bookings is an appointment scheduling application that is part of the Microsoft 365 suite.  Bookings allows you to create a scheduling interface, with specific limitations about services offered and availability, and syncs with your Outlook calendar.  As an example, faculty can offer 30-minute appointments as “Office Hours” between 2 pm and 4 pm on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, only.

    Key features of Microsoft Bookings include:

    • Appointments can be booked online through a web-based interface, eliminating the need for back-and-forth emails or phone calls to schedule appointments.
    • MS Bookings integrates with Office 365, making it easy to manage and track appointments.
    • Users can customize their booking page with the UConn Health logo and important details such as services offered, availability, and custom and/or required fields when scheduling appointments.
    • MS Bookings can send automated reminders and notifications for appointments and allows customization of these messages.
    • MS Bookings will manage staff schedules and allow users to select from a list of providers who offer services.
