Stanford Children's Health (SCH) Epic Access for Research Monitors

Please submit a Help Ticket HERE for any questions, issues, or modifications regarding SCH Epic Access for Monitors.

Instructions:  Complete the online request form per the SOP for any monitor (i.e., Industry Sponsor, FDA) who requires LPCH Epic access for research auditing purposes.  

Timeline: Submit a request by completing the Online Request Form (RedCap questionnaire) below at least 15 business days prior to your monitor’s requested first day of access.  If the requester does not receive a notification within 5 business days of the monitor’s first day of access, please submit a Help Ticket HERE

**Do not submit a request any earlier than 20 business days prior to your monitor’s requested first day of access.**

IMPORTANT: Prior to completing form, ensure you have ALL the following information and documents available to upload:

  1. PDF of the completed and signed Stanford Children’s Health Remote Monitor Agreement
  2. PDF of your IRB Approval Letter (
  3. List of all Medical Record Numbers (MRNs) to which the monitor will need access   
  4. For each MRN, the following will be required:
    1. PDF of the entire Informed Consent Form (ICF) with signature(s) along with the corresponding PDF of the entire Assent Form (AF) with signature(s) as required by regulation. Access request will not be processed if any of the ICFs and AFs are missing. (ICFs and AFs can be downloaded from the Scanned Documents tab in Epic.) (HINT: use ‘print to PDF’.)

Important notes about this process

  • Requests missing any of the above required documents will not be processed.
  • Access request will not be processed if any of the ICFs and AFs are missing.
  • Due to the backlog of studies that require monitor visits during shelter-in-place, requests may take longer than usual to process.
  • This is the only process by which monitors may access SCH Epic remotely.

Termination: Supervisors must submit a termination request here when an employee with access to Stanford Children’s Health Epic leaves their position. Please be advised that MCHRI must be notified immediately of any termination or leave from the position in which SCH Epic access is currently enabled. This includes leaves of absence, internal Stanford University transfers, transfers to Stanford Children’s Health or Stanford Healthcare, as well as employment separation from Stanford University. MCHRI will also perform regular monitoring of access. Should we identify an inactive user, we will send a status confirmation request to the PI/Manager that most recently attested to the individual’s access. Should a response not be received from the PI/Manager within 48 hours, access to Epic will be terminated.
