Data Collection

The backbone of the pediRes-Q initiative is the data collected and reported from participating institutions. The manner in which we manage this data has a huge impact on the success of the project. This makes thorough and precise data collection the most crucial step in accurate and comprehensive data management. The team here understands the burden of data collection and strives to make it as easy as possible for you and your team. 

This page details the ways in which pediRES-Q data is collected and stored.

*A CHOP Digital Identity for each unique user is required to access and enter data into the pediRES-Q REDCap database.
