U of I System Health Insurance Portability and Accountability (HIPAA) Training

Because Illinois REDCap is housed in a HIPAA-provisioned Amazon Web Services (AWS) space, ALL users who will be accessing Illinois REDCap must complete U of I System Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Training.

HIPAA training is administered by the U of I System. Training is coordinated so that most people are only required to complete HIPAA training once per year. However, some users may be required to complete HIPAA training more than once in a year if their access requirements change. Annual HIPAA training is required to access Illinois REDCap. Failure to complete the annual training may result in suspension of Illinois REDCap access until training is completed.

To obtain access to HIPAA training, users must first complete the Illinois REDCap User Request Form, which includes reading and agreeing to the terms outlined in the Illinois REDCap User Agreement and Protecting High Risk Data. If you belong to a HIPAA-covered component (e.g., School of Social Work) and/or have already completed U of I System HIPAA training, you will have the option to upload your HIPAA training completion certificate.

Within one week of submitting your Illinois REDCap User Request Form, you will receive a link via email to access U of I System HIPAA training. Please follow these steps:

  1. Click the emailed link to access and complete the U of I System HIPAA training (approx. 1.5 hours)

  2. Save and email your HIPAA training completion certificate to redcap-admin@illinois.edu. The IHSI REDCap team is not notified when training has been completed. Therefore, it is essential that you save and email the PDF of your certificate directly to redcap-admin@illinois.edu.

Upon receipt of your HIPAA training completion certificate, the IHSI REDCap team will grant you Illinois REDCap access (may take up to two business days).

After completing HIPAA training, it is imperative that you continue to adhere to the guidelines outlined in Protecting High Risk Data while using Illinois REDCap. 

REDCap Training 

To ensure baseline familiarity with REDCap, all users who will be accessing Illinois REDCap are required to complete REDCap video training prior to working in Illinois REDCap. The amount of required training varies by role as outlined in the Illinois REDCap account user agreement. Users are encouraged to view additional REDCap training videos as needed.

The content of the training videos and layout of the system may look slightly different than your view if the videos were produced using an older version of REDCap.
