CBMi's Stacey Wrazien Wins REDCap 'Interesting Use Case' for Second Year in a Row

CBMi's Stacey Wrazien was selected as one of three winners for "Interesting Use Case' at REDCap Day 2013 . Her case "The Data Almanac" presented a web application that allows users to create, collect, and track standards associated with electronic case report forms. With the Data Almanac, users are allowed to associate definitions, codes, and sources with their questions creating clear, transparent standards. This additional information is then made available at point of data entry in the electronic forms. The Data Almanac is integrated with REDCap through the API, where users can specify projects to import into the Almanac and then annotate the questions as appropriate. The Data Almanac also tracks changes over time to allow users to track how standards evolve surrounding their data sets.

CHOP's Center for Biomedical Informatics at CHOP and the University of Pennsylvania hosted this year's REDCap Annual Conference. A total of 164 attendees came to the event from 90 institutions and 10 countries (USA, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Denmark, Iceland, Japan, Nigeria, Singapore and South Korea). Previous conferences have been held by Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, University of Colorado at Denver, Mayo Clinic, and Vanderbilt University with attendance increasing steadily each year. REDCap is now supporting over 94,000 end–users at 681 academic and non–profit partner sites across six continents.
