Clinical Research Billing & Quality Assurance
Joint Commission standards maintain that consent forms should be part of the patient’s medical record. Generally speaking, if a Hopkins patient is enrolled in a trial for which there is Hopkins IRB approval, the signed informed consent form should be added to their electronic medical record. This change in practice means that research consent forms will now be scanned into a patient’s record in Epic.
The Clinical Research Billing Compliance (CRBC) Office will scan these items in on your study’s behalf to help ensure that the scanning and indexing of the forms are completed accurately.
