Operational Imperatives for All Studies
Epic is the Research System of Record
While we continually work to develop Epic’s functionality, as a guiding principal, it must be used for research. Therefore, research projects that involve patient visits must be tracked within Epic. At a minimum, research visits must be scheduled using Epic and those outpatient visits must be documented within Epic.
Utilize System Protections for Research Patients
ALL research encounters within Epic are protected and placed behind Break the Glass (BTG). The best effort you can make to protect a research participant’s information and privacy is to document research information within the research encounter ONLY. Each participant must have a scheduled research visit and research encounter such that documentation can be placed on a progress note within the research encounter in Epic.
