IRB Ancillary Reviews

HIPCO and the ETHOS/IRB Ancillary Review Process

HIPCO is an ancillary reviewer for all studies submitted to ETHOS that involve individual health information. HIPCO’s ancillary review process includes:

  • Confirming that all University research team members have completed University HIPAA training.
  • Confirming that the research team has either requested a waiver of the HIPAA authorization, or is using the University’s HIPAA Authorization form as appropriate.
  • Reviewing the Protocol to ensure that the research team is using University approved methods of securing the research data.
