Open source software for making electronic health data interoperable between Epic & REDCap
This open-source software transfers electronic health data across platforms, reduces data collection time, and prevents manual transcription errors, allowing researchers and their teams to conduct more efficient and high-impact clinical research. It will be hosted on Epic's app development open-source platform, App Orchard.
What is it?
Retrieve Form for Data Capture (RFD) is a standard for research data collection from Electronic Health Records (EHRs). The software works as a bridge between Epic and REDcap, allowing researchers to quickly and accurately transfer EHR data and prevent transcription errors.
Watch this video overview of RFD to better understand how it can be used.
Why use it?
Reduce data collection time.
Increase clinical research coordinators’ efficiency by reducing the data collection burden.
Improve data quality by directly and securely transferring EHR data to REDcap.
Maintain & View Data Provenance
Use RFD Form Archiver to archive and audit data historical records.
