g. Several healthcare providers are collaborating on an important research study that includes a review of the patient’s history, a guided interview, and a computed tomography scan (CT) for each patient participating in the study. The hospital Institutional Board of Review (IRB) has given permission for data collection of the patients’ health history via computerized patient records for patients who have signed the informed consent forms. In the past, once the IRB approval was obtained, the principal investigator (PI) sent a list of names of the co-investigators to the IT department to establish their research-related computer accounts. The co-investigators would then review the patient’s records and set up the data collection format for each patient. Late Friday afternoon the PI receives a memo explaining that the IT procedures have been changed and the accounts will not be established until the co-investigators have signed the appropriate forms and received training that includes the policies and procedures for using the computerized patient records. Several patients have already been scheduled for interviews and CTs on Saturday. All of the co-investigators currently have access to the computerized record for these patents via their hospital responsibilities. The PI and co-investigators decide to use their hospital access and deal with the change in procedures on Monday.

 

PI: Ethical___ Unethical___ Computer crime___

 

Co-investigators: Ethical___ Unethical___ Computer crime___
