REDcap was created in 2004 by Paul Harris, director of the Vanderbilt Office of Research Informatics.   REDCap supports clinical and translational research and is accessible to not-for-profits under a no-cost license. Institutions around the globe, including many medical research groups as well as an art museum and a fishery, use the software for secure and confidential data management.
