Other requirements and helpful information for researchers Patient contact studies for patients under 18 require active physician consent.
Patient contact studies for patients over 18 can use passive physician consent. The ASCR is required to give physicians a minimum of 6 weeks to respond for physician consent.

Please add a 4th category for IRB and Registry. This category would need to be for registry approval and state approval. The DOAR committee is not the full ADPH IRB and as such I could not fill out the required fields or IRB.
Processing timeframe
  • For linkage studies and de-identified data release: 1 - 3 months
  • For patient contact studies: 3-6 months
Patient Consent and Contact Procedures
