Research Administration

”A community, learning together, to improve healthcare and health”

The mission of Research Administration is to enable and support quality research throughout M Health Fairview. Through teamwork and collaboration with our researchers, both at the University of Minnesota and in the community, Research Administration provides regulatory, compliance, and contractual support.

We work closely with our research partners at the University of Minnesota to ensure our clinical teams are educated and involved with the operations of the trials being conducted within M Health Fairview.

Ancillary Review

Research Administration reviews each study or trial that involves M Health Fairview patients, facilities, staff, services, or data/records. A review is assigned during the IRB pre-review process and must be complete prior to the study being reviewed by the IRB. We work closely with the study team to ensure billing compliance (OnCore calendar review) and feasibility within the clinical units and services (lab, imagining, pathology, etc.).

Billing Compliance

Research Administration is responsible for billing compliance and manages the billing compliance review process for clinical services associated with research studies.

Contracts and Subawards

Research Administration reviews all research-related contracts and agreements. These include but are not limited to:

  • Agreements for a new study (clinical trial agreements, study agreements, study work orders, awards/sub-awards etc.)
  • Amendments
  • Data use/data sharing agreements
  • Other miscellaneous research-related agreements (service or professional agreements, etc.)
