The Ideate Human Ethics (IRB) application provides a comprehensive electronic management system for the development, submission, review, and management of research protocols involving human subjects. It facilitates close collaboration of researchers, department administrators, associated research personnel, department heads, IRB (Human Ethics) staff, IRB (Human Ethics) committee members, and any other internal/external reviewers. Logic-driven application forms guide investigators through applicable requirements based on the nature of their Study. The system automates task assignments and distribution of IRB (Human Ethics) communications. The application provides Office Management support for one or more Boards, including: Board membership and meeting schedules, automatic generation of Agendas and Minutes, and reporting capabilities.
