i2b2 to REDCap

REDCap is a stand-alone data management software package used for a wide variety of clinical research project types. In contrast, i2b2 is a software tool for large-scale query and export of data from the EHR. The CTSI has created a bridge between these two packages which allows data extraction, curation, quality control, and mapping between EHR and study-specific data. The tool leverages the i2b2 user interface in order to allow mapping of clinical data variables from i2b2 to a REDCap research project, and features sophisticated data transformation and aggregation options. Once the tool is set up, it automatically transfers data to REDCap.

One-on-one support is required to make use of the tool, and training is highly encouraged. Please contact the CTSI Research Help Desk to request a consultation.
