Epic has created a research screening questionnaire that can be used in conjunction with the current MyChart recruitment functionality. MyChart research screening questionnaires can help study teams determine eligibility by collecting information from the patient that cannot easily be found in the medical record.
Once a MyChart research screening questionnaire is configured for a study, patients who click “I’m Interested” for a recruitment request in MyChart are presented with the research screening questionnaire.
WashU study teams must receive approval from the IRB before utilizing MyChart research recruitment messaging and MyChart research screening questionnaires. Once approved by the IRB, the Epic1 Research Team will intake requests through the Epic1 Research Intake Form in REDCap. For studies that are already active, a ServiceNow request should be submitted to the Epic1 Research Team.
For more information about MyChart research recruitment messages and MyChart research screening questionnaires, please refer to the “Research Recruitment and MyChart” tip sheet located on the Epic Research Learning Home Dashboard. The use of the MyChart research screening questionnaire is limited to adults.
For more information about the IRB review and approval process for MyChart research recruitment messaging and MyChart research screening questionnaires, please refer to the HRPO website. Information is available within the Research Guide, as well as within the “help button” text in the myIRB submission system.
