Let’s start using REDCap!

The BiSC project has been around for a long time. The work done by the whole team is impressive, but there is still a long way to go; and because we want to excel day after day and work in the most productive and agile way possible, we always think of new tools and methods to improve the project.

The amount of data collected from the beginning of the project so far is huge and we are not done yet. That’s why a few months ago we considered migrating all the data collected and stored in other programs to REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture). REDCap is a web platform for creating and managing databases, widely used in the field of biomedical research. It was created in 2014 by a small team of clinical researchers from Vanderbiltm University, and has since grown to spread around the world. It is a very useful tool that will allow the whole team to work in a very intuitive and above all collaborative way, helping to avoid the typical problems that researchers face every day, such as the quality of the data. It will take a while to adjust, but it will be worth it.

Many thanks to the whole team and especially to Neus Rosell and Susana Méndez, who have devoted immense hours to making this possible.
