Please note that beginning January 1, 2013 there will be a new process for clinical services review. All research studies that require imaging or ophthalmology clinical services will need to be reviewed by the units delivering the service. The purpose of the review process is to streamline and standardize the clinical research services provided to OSUWMC researchers. This will improve the ability to provide the correct services specified per study and will reduce research billing errors.
The Research Billing Office
(RBO) will serve as the gatekeeper for this process and will forward information to the service units for all applicable studies. The units will determine if the service requests can be accommodated with current equipment, how to process through the Health System, if special procedures are required, and what charge codes will be used for billing.
The units may require up to 10 business days to complete their reviews. Upon completion of their reviews the units will provide the researcher, research staff, and RBO with a letter detailing the operational and financial details.
The RBO will be offering two Question/Answer sessions about this new process for those that are interested:
- Thursday, December 6th from 11:00 – 12:00 pm in 1063 Graves Hall
- Thursday, December 13th from 12:00 – 1:00 pm in 1063 Graves Hall
Questions regarding the new process can be sent to Research.email@example.com
Note to OSU Comprehensive Cancer Center (OSUCCC) members: For cancer clinical trials managed by the OSUCCC Clinical Trials Office, the James Administrative Research Operations office will be responsible for routing studies to the service units for review.
