Obtaining Data for HIPAA “Preparatory to Research” Activities
If you are still trying to assess the feasibility of a proposed research study, we’re happy to give you data in support of your assessment, after you have signed a prep-to-research data privacy attestation.
Complete the Data Privacy Attestation
Before we supply you with any data in support of preparatory to research activities you need to agree to a set of obligations regarding data privacy and security.
Please note that if you do decide to engage in the research, you must complete the appropriate compliance process from start to finish. We cannot re-use your prep-to-research obligations attestation for the actual research data request, as some of the data privacy obligation statements will change and new ones will be introduced, and there will be additional documentation steps that must be completed once the intent is to use the data for research.
