The Epidemiology and Development of Alzheimer’s Disease in Urban and Rural Costa Rica research project is a longitudinal study of memory and aging harmonized with the University of Kansas’ Alzheimer Disease Center (ADC). This is the first paperless ADC based entirely in the REDCap database. The investigators developed a parallel assessment toolkit/battery in Spanish and deployed it in San Jose and Guanacaste Costa Rica. To meet the needs of Latin American colleagues, the assessment battery was migrated to Colectica and then redeveloped using QueXF, so that all data forms could be optically character recognized. The investigators will review the hurdles and plans for the next steps of development.
