Case Study: Transforming the Human Research Protection Program at Pennsylvania State University
Penn State partnered with Huron in achieving a complete Institutional Review Board (IRB) transformation. This included deploying a new electronic IRB system, Huron's IRB software, as well as implementing Huron’s HRPP Toolkit, a comprehensive set of workflows, standard operating procedures, checklists, worksheets and templates that meet regulatory requirements and standards for accreditation by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs, Inc. (AAHRPP). Huron also provided support for the restructuring of the two HRPP offices and onsite mentoring for HRPP staff through the transformation.
All of these initiatives led to a significant decrease in turnaround times, increased consistency in reviews and increased morale and satisfaction.Download Now
