Developing a study database with REDCap®

Using the validated REDCap® instances from the DKF, you can develop study databases yourself that are Good Clinical Practice (GCP)-compliant and conform to regulatory requirements in case of inspections or audits. The use of REDCap® is free of charge for DKF research groups.

We provide you with:

  • Access to a validated version of REDCap® with regular updates and back-ups

  • Project templates with standard forms, e.g. for reporting SAEs, and standard roles

  • Template for a data management plan

  • Technical review of the database prior to the first go-live


You will be responsible for:

  • Development of the study database

  • Implementation of changes

  • Management of access rights

When can it be useful to develop a study database yourself?

  • When there is already a good understanding of clinical trial data management in the study team.
  • If the research project is not too complex.
  • When study participants are to enter data directly (online surveys).
  • If you want to save costs.

We will be happy to advise you.
