Databases for home visits
Submitted by Clean Air for Kids on 2 June 2015 - 12:11pm
I work with the Clean Air for Kids program at the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department in the State of Washington. The majority of our work is done utilizing home visits and our database is not quite up to snuff. We are starting to shop around for other databases and thought we would check and see what other programs are using. If you are willing, it would be helpful if you could share: what database you are using, how much it cost, what fields you can fill in, can it be used on a laptop/tablet, what are the pros and cons.
Many thanks in advance!

Will you be using your database for research, at least in part? If so, redCap is available for free from Vanderbilt University. It allows you to design your own database meaning you can choose what fields you want to include. And it can be used on a tablet. You use your own IT and administrative folks. There are some requirements for hardware and your agency has to join as a consortium partner before you can use this free tool. [Joining is free, too; there is an end-user license agreement.)
