The REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) system is used to create the interface to capture each of the patients’ data points. This system was recommended for research use by TTUHSC El Paso's IT and research departments. This system has been cleared by IT Security and IRB.
The TTUHSC El Paso REDCap configuration provides SSH protocol which provides cryptographic that enables the transfer of information in a secure way. In addition, the web and database servers are stand-alone which adds another layer of security for protection of PHI data. IT Security has enabled REDCap to be accessible outside the TTUHSC El Paso network. Also, firewall rules, proxy server configurations, and other measures have been placed in order for us be able to open communication with any institution.
The Cancer Clinical Research Core will be the only organism able to login into the
system using their eraider.
