Digital Health Review Reminders

October 24, 2019 10:50 am

If your IRB protocol contains mobile health technology (e.g. wearables or mobile apps), follow this checklist to move your protocol through the Digital Health Review process more efficiently:

  • Complete the Digital Health form within Insight. Incomplete forms cause delays.
    • Select YES to the Digital Health question. Several recent submissions were either inaccurate or blank.
    • Include ALL technologies/mobile devices and answer the subsequent questions for each. Be sure to include manuals.
  • Acquire vendor contact information. Obtain this ahead of the Digital Health Review.
  • Outline use of the technology within your protocol – some teams refer to a survey, never mentioning the products or technology being used. Samples are in the Toolbox

Questions? Contact the Mobile Application Process Coordinator (MAPC​) at irbdigitalhealthreview@partners.org. The MAPC works closely with many of the different reviewers and processes to coordinate protocol review and share information.
