You can import data from a RedCap project into a related NiDB project. Follow the following steps to import data from RedCap into NiDB.
To start the import data process you need the following information from RedCap.
You can import data into a particular NiDB project. To import data into a NiDb project, follow the steps below:
It will show lists of RedCap arms, events, and instruments related to the project that you connected. Please check the contents to make sure that the connected project is correct. In case the information is not correct then update the correct RedCap server and RedCap token information above. If the information is correct then:
Mapping the data structures in the RedCap to NiDB is the most important step before importing the data into NiDB. Integrity and accuracy of mapping defines how accurate the data is being imported to the desired format. Map each Redcap form separately that is desired to import into NiDB. Also define mapping for each field of RedCap form to a variable in NiDB instrument. The following is the mapping guide.
Once the mapping data structure is defined for all the RedCap forms, start importing the data form-wise. TO start the transfer process, a unique identifier that is common in RedCap and NiDB is required. After entering the unique identifier RedCap field name, hit the “Start Transfer” button. The data will be transferred. Check the imported data for the accuracy.
Note: The mapping step is required only once. However any defined mapping structure can be update accordingly. The data transfer can be performed anytime it is required.
