REDCap Shared Library

Check it out now: Search the REDCap Library

The REDCap Shared Library is a repository for REDCap data collection instruments and forms that can be downloaded and used by researchers at REDCap partner institutions. Curated instruments have been approved for inclusion by the REDCap Library Oversight Committee (REDLOC) after review for research relevance, accuracy in function and coding (see guidelines), and copyright issues.You may search below for any available data collection instruments. If you got to this site directly, you will be able to view the shared instruments as they would appear in REDCap or view a PDF version that can be downloaded and/or printed. Otherwise, if you arrived here from the REDCap application, you will have the additional option of importing the form directly into REDCap. If you wish, you may download a list of all library instruments in Excel/CSV format. If you download and utilize an instrument from the REDCap Shared Library, please cite the RSL manuscript. If you have questions or are experiencing issues, please contact


Best Practices

HIPAA Compliance and PHI

  1. Export only when necessary – One of REDCap’s greatest strength is the security of your data. Take precaution when exporting data and only export data if you need to run reports or analyses outside of REDCap. Limit user privileges to only allow export rights to those who really need it.
  2. Use REDCap’s Send-It Feature to send data – Send-It is a secure data transfer application that allows you to upload a file (up to 32 MB in size) and then allow multiple recipients to download the file in a secure manner. Each recipient will receive an email containing a unique download URL, along with a second follow-up email with the password (for greater security) for downloading the file. The file will be stored securely and then later removed from the server after the specified expiration date. Send-It is the perfect solution for anyone wanting to send files that are too large for email attachments or that contain sensitive data.
  3. Representing DH & BNI  – if you are sending surveys to non-DignityHealth , remember that you are representing DH Family.
