Access to Health Records
If your project requires access to patient data, or Health Records for retroactive or ongoing data collection, please contact the privacy Privacy Office (firstname.lastname@example.org). Once you have obtained approval from Privacy, please submit the signed form to the REB office, along with your ethics submission, or amendment/addendum form for approval. Once you have received REB approval, you may begin your data collection.
There are restrictions regarding the collection of patient data for research purposes. As a clinician, you may already have access to EMR; however, as a researcher, you may only collect what has been approved for research purposes. If you have any questions, or are unsure of the process, please contact the REB office (REB@bruyere.org), or the Privacy Office (email@example.com)
