8.2.2016- New Form Available for HIPAA Waiver Requests

An updated version of the Request for Waiver of HIPAA Authorization form has been developed. The new version is now available on the IRB website and is required for all new studies seeking to obtain a waiver of HIPAA authorization submitted after August 1, 2016. Go to the "Forms & Templates" page to download a copy.

In conjunction with the release of this new form, revisions to the HSERA application for initial approval are in production. The questions related to collection, use, and disclosure of protected health information (PHI) will be streamlined in a future HSERA update. Please note that the date of this update has not been determined but the changes will not adversely affect studies that were already approved.
