As one of many infrastructure investments that are part of the Strategic Research Initiative, the Medical School Office of Research recently opened the Honest Broker Office (HBO).
The HBO has been established to help faculty “fast forward” access to clinical data for research and is IRBMED approved.
Now any Medical School investigator who requires a clinical data set or an aggregate count for cohort feasibility can simply go to the HBO website and submit a request form online.
“In such a decentralized environment, fast and secure access to clinical data has always been a challenge for Medical School faculty,” says the new office’s director, Deb Gipson, M.D. “Our HBO team can now step in to facilitate, freeing researchers to focus more on science and less on process.”
