    • Study Identification
    • Type of Review
    • Review Board
    • Location
    • Multi-site
    • Study Personnel
    • External Collaborators
    • Funding

Updates to the Buck-IRB system

Tue, 6th December, 2016

Several updates to the Buck-IRB system went into effect on December 6, 2016, many of which will improve and enhance the Buck-IRB work experience.

  • Investigators using the combined consent and HIPAA authorization template can now place the document in Buck-IRB as a combined document, requiring only one upload
  • Studies involving more than one student pool (e.g., REP, LOC) can now indicate all student pools used
  • Pending signatures (including personnel change requests) are now visible on the study workspace for all submission types. The “re-notify” button can be used to remind study team members of the signature requirement.
  • Investigator faculty appointment information is now displayed consistently across systems, including Buck-IRB and Study Team Look-up. If a faculty member has multiple appointments, all will be displayed.
  • In addition to date, the time will be displayed for all action history entries on the study workspace page

Other changes

Many other changes included in the update improve workflow for ORRP staff and IRB members, though the majority will occur behind the scenes with little or no direct impact on investigators.
