Uploading Clinical Trial Informed Consent Documents into Cerner
In follow-up to VCU Health notice issued on January 4, 2019 regarding uploading clinical trial consents into Cerner, this is a reminder of the established options available to transition signed consents into the patient medical record and one new option:
1. You can create a pdf of the signed ICF and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and the CRU will upload the document into the patient’s Cerner consent folder; or
2. Bring your signed ICF to the CRU and we will scan the document and upload into it into the patient’s Cerner consent folder.
3. A third option is obtaining access to upload the consents into Cerner yourself. To acquire this access, there are two required classes:
(a) GE-IDX Basics (RCT) and
(b) ImageNow Training (RCT)
Both classes are held from 8:30am – 12:00pm and at One Cap Square or Willow Lawn. You can self-enroll through the Learning Exchange or we, on North 8, can help you register. You must take GE-IDX Basics first, then ImageNow.
Please remember that storage of the signed clinical research ICF in Cerner is good research practice and a Joint Commission requirement. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to any CRU staff.
