Keeping Your Data Secure

When you use REDCap, all your data is kept secure and private. REDCap can remove identifiers from a dataset prior to exporting for analysis to create either a limited data set or a safe harbor data set. A safe harbor data set is the removal of the 18 pieces of information considered identifiers for the purposes of HIPAA compliance.

  • HIPAA Compliant
  • Data stored on a secure server
  • Database access requires user authentication with password
  • Data access based on an individual’s role on a project
  • Logging and audit trails on all data interactions
  • IRB and UF Privacy Office approved for collection and storage of PHI including surveys
