REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is one of the most popular web-based applications to support data capture for research studies and registries. i2b2 (Informatics for Integrating Biology and the Bedside) is a widely adopted data warehouse to re-use clinical data for research purposes. A general procedure able to integrate these solutions could facilitate research activities in several institutions. Starting from the principles adopted by the SEINE approach, one of the most successful approach designed to i2b2-REDCap integration, we proposed a general and flexible ETL (Extract Transform and Load) procedure for synchronizing an i2b2 project with a REDCap study.
