Get expert advice on data management

Many projects will just need a single, well designed REDCap Database to enter the data, but we can also help with more complicated data management plans.  Our experienced team can help with projects of any size, from importing a spreadsheet into a new database, to working with data sets of many terabytes.  We have extensive experience of working with legacy datasets/databases and with multi-centre studies needing a central data collection point.
