The Research Permissions Management System (RPMS) is a novel and comprehensive mechanism for electronically capturing and managing informed consents, research authorizations and patient permissions in both clinical care and research settings. RPMS addresses the challenge of patient trust and research participant recruitment by replacing current paper-based methods and simplifying the collection and management of informed consents and research permissions that accrue to an individual through their direct and indirect interactions with the research enterprise.
The RPMS project was supported by a “Grand Opportunity” grant (#RC2LM010796) from the National Library of Medicine at the National Institute of Health to HSSC. A Grand Opportunity grant funds the research development of ideas that will have high-impact on the research community and which may also create new area of scientific investigation.
RPMS is being released as an open-source software application.
