REDCap is a free, secure, web-based application designed to support data capture for research studies. The system was developed by a multi-institutional consortium initiated at Vanderbilt University. Data collection is customized for each study or clinical trial by the research team with guidance from Harvard Catalyst EDC Support Staff. REDCap is designed to comply with HIPAA regulations. REDCap is not 21 CFR Part 11 compliant.

LORIS (Longitudinal Online Research and Imaging System) is web-based data and project management software for neuroimaging research studies. It is an open-source framework for storing and processing behavioural, clinical, neuroimaging and genetics data. LORIS also makes it easy to manage large datasets acquired over time in a longitudinal study, or at different locations in a large multi-site study.
XNAT is an open-source imaging informatics software platform dedicated to helping you perform imaging-based research. XNAT’s core functions manage importing, archiving, processing and securely distributing imaging and related study data. But its extended uses continue to evolve.
