All investigators must use the HIPAA authorization form available on the FORMS tab of this website. The study HIPAA form requires IRB review and must be stamped by the IRB. Please submit the study HIPAA form along with your PSF and other study materials in PRISM.
Along with the study consent form, research participants must sign a HIPAA authorization and receive a Notice of Privacy Practices (NPP), or the researcher will obtain a HIPAA Waiver of Authorization from the IRB. All of these forms are available on the Forms section of the IRB website.
Persons who are participating in a telephone screening must also receive HIPAA information, which can be found here.
Please check here for additional information about the HIPAA regulations. (Note: This link only works inside NYSPI.) For those outside of NYSPI, we have included a link to the Notice of Privacy Practices documents in English and in Spanish.
Please contact Amy Bennett-Staub, the institutional Privacy Officer, at 646-774-8251 or Bennett@nyspi.columbia.edu if you have any questions.
