InfoEd Conflict of Interest Core Functions

InfoEd Conflict of Interest serves as a convenient online solution for individuals to disclose relevant relationships and holdings. Integration of the disclosure and review process with the approval and management of research activity helps to maintain the integrity of the process.

Flexible Data Collection

  • Institutions can design and configure their own user interfaces for data entry using the InfoEd Solution integrated eForm tool, which allows for automatic population of data from standardized sources, as well as branching logic to guide the user through institution requirements

Document Management

  • Supports document storage, allowing the institution to maintain electronic versions of committee review, communications, management plans, etc.
  • Document storage can be selectively integrated with institution repositories, which allows the system to act as source or controlled access point to materials

Research Integration

  • Institutions can model the interwoven relationships between conflict of interest management and the approval of research funding, research protocols and contracts
  • Event triggers and communications can flow between offices to strengthen research integrity

Reporting

  • The reporting tools provide access to all fields, enabling configurable views of the data on demand, to quantify financials, track performance, and support diligence in the completion of action items

Contact Management

  • Leverages a central contact management system, providing visibility into the relationships with external organizations across research efforts

Disclosure and Certification

  • Electronically disclose statements of external interests
  • Automatically triage submissions for review based on the responses provided
  • Identify external interests that relate to research activity

Committee Review

  • Track committee results and subsequent action from disclosure or certification
  • Track ongoing review to ensure compliance with management plans

Conflict Management

  • Create management plans that are referenced appropriately against the relevant disclosure and research activities
