Patient Lookup Temporarily Unavailable 6/21/2018

MSDW is experiencing an unexpected hardware issue today that is causing the eRAP patient lookup feature to not function. Central IT is in the process of remediating the issue. It should be resolved within the next 2-4 hours.

Middleware Server Migration - June 18th at 10am 6/14/2018

We are migrating one of our middleware servers on Monday at 10am. This particular server hosts the eRAP label printer API and eRAP integration service (the system component that sends and receives messages to/from external systems). The switch should be seamless and require no downtime.

This is a low risk maintenance action. However, if the migration fails for some unforeseen reason that we did not detect while performing test migrations on our QA servers, we are prepared to revert back to the existing middleware server and reschedule the migration for another time.

Character Encoding Issue Resolved 5/8/2018

You may have noticed strange characters in form field and section labels over the last two days. This was a result of an issue present in our Sunday production release. We largely resolved the issue yesterday, and finished remediation today.

Though we believe the issue to be completely resolved, if you encounter malformed field or section labels in your project, please submit a support ticket to let us know.

eRAP Version 1.19.0 Released 5/6/2018

We released version 1.19.0 this weekend. This release contains many project-specific enhancements. It also brings back the New Project Request form for requesting the creation of a new eRAP project.

REDCap Now Supported by the RDS Team 5/6/2018

Beginning in April, the Research Data Services team now maintains and supports REDCap - a mature, secure web application for building and managing online surveys and databases.

REDCap and eRAP are very similar, but both have their advantages. For example, eRAP has data integrations with other Mount Sinai systems and project-specific reporting capabilities. REDCap is self-service, allows for data collection via public surveys, and a mobile app. You can start using REDCap right now by logging in with your Mount Sinai network account.
