In addition to leading our operations and strategic planning, Dipti also serves as Assistant Dean for Academic & Administrative Information Systems for the Biological Sciences Division (BSD), leading the implementation of new technology solutions to improve strategic decision-making and operational efficiency. She joined the BSD from University of Texas Southwestern, where she led strategic initiatives including technology support for clinical research, research administration, and academic and educational technology. Dipti has a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research from the University of California, Berkeley, a Master’s degree in Operations Research also from Berkeley, and a Master’s degree in Computer Science from the University of California, San Diego. She is a member of the American Medical Informatics Association and the Association for American Medical Colleges, Group on Information Resources.

Want another set of eyes to look over your project design?
Need technical help with field or form problem?

The CRI would like to announce the implementation of a new service – weekly REDCap office hours at the medical campus. Every Thursday from 1:00-3:00pm, you can visit CRI’s Peck Conference Room (N161A) to meet with our resident REDCap Administrator Julissa Acevedo. No appointment is necessary, but please email your question to Julissa ahead of time. We hope you take advantage of and enjoy this new service.

REDCap Feedback Survey

By | News, REDCap

Many thanks to UChicago’s REDCap community for their ongoing use of REDCap. Below is a link to an anonymous survey which asks for your feedback on topics such as training, support, and REDCap itself. Our goal is to use this feedback to help us identify areas of improvement.

2019 REDCap Feedback Survey

This link is NOT unique to you so feel free to share it with UChicago colleagues. This survey should take about 5-20 minutes to complete depending on the level of feedback you would like to provide. If you need more time, there is also a “Save & Return Later” option. The survey will remain open until Thursday, May 30th.

As a thank you for participating in our survey, you will be eligible to enter a raffle for REDCap branded products. After submitting your feedback survey, you will be directed to a new survey to complete a raffle entry. Your contact information will not be tied to your feedback responses, as they are two separate surveys. If you are one of our randomly selected winners, we will contact you on Friday, May 31st.

Thank you in advance for your time and participation!
