Our IRB prohibits collection of DOB, or has restrictions related to when it may be collected. What should we do?
NARCRMS has been updated and will no longer collect DOB; instead, year and quarter of birth will be collected. If your site’s IRB prohibits collection of year/quarter of birth or requires a data usage agreement or business associate agreement (BAA) in order to collect that information, please notify the NARCRMS Operations Group (NARCRMSOps@s-3.com). We can work with you to determine whether wording in the clinical center agreement is sufficient to satisfy the IRB, or determine the most appropriate path forward based on your specific requirements.
