About us

Our team manages registries and provides expert support to internal and external researchers, clinicians and organisations either running, or interested in establishing, a clinical quality registry.

We are a multidisciplinary team of academics, statisticians, IT experts and mixed methods researchers.

We recommend and use REDCap software to build clinical quality registry forms, utilising REDCap rich features to collect, store, and export data for data analysis. REDCap (Research Electronic Data CAPture) is a web application specifically built for non-technical users to build their own data collection forms and surveys with ease. REDCap is licensed to Monash University staff and students, is hosted on an actively secure platform, and the database resides on a secure segment of the Monash network. REDCap software is managed by Helix who perform support, upgrades and customisations to the application.
