In recent years, clinical trials and studies have increasingly started using electronic systems to capture the data to support downstream analysis. However, even though these tools allow the easy creation of electronic forms, they are not designed to capture clinical data; impose few constraints on what should be captured; and have limited data sharing capabilities. One of the most popular tools currently used to capture research data is REDCap, a web application created at Vanderbilt University. Research electronic data capture (REDcap); The REDCap Consortium
Redmatch is a tool designed to define transformation rules between REDCap forms and FHIR resources to support the standardised export of REDCap content.
This tool is targeted at domain experts who know about FHIR but don’t necessarily have programming language skills. The rules engine implements a domain specific language that allows definition of the transformation rules without the need to write any code.

Redmatch is a tool developed by CSIRO’s Australian e-Health Research Centre, designed to define transformation rules between REDCap forms and FHIR resources to support the standardised export of REDCap content.
