  • Study Tracker & Project One Update

    As part of P1 Preparation,  NU IRB Approved studies with NMHC services to be performed after March 3, 2018, are required to create new study budgets in Study Tracker.

    As a supplement to the classroom training, you can find detailed steps on budget creation in the Budget Setup Guide.

    Please refer to the Study Tracker & Project One Update Information FAQ for more detailed information. 

  • NMH, NMG, and LFH Research Fee Schedule Update

    The new NMH, NMG and LFH fee schedules are now available. Although all study budgets will show the previous fee schedule within Study Tracker the study team member will have the option to update their current approved budget with the new research rate and submit for a new NMHC approval if reflection of the new fee schedule is desired. If the budget is not updated the study invoice will reflect the new rate.

    Please contact one of the following individuals with any Fee Schedule specific questions, comments or needs:

    Sarah Madia
    Manager of Research
    Office (630) 933-5281 or (312) 926-2082

  • Research Clinical and Ancillary Tools Adoption Session

    Subject: Research Clinical and Ancillary Tools Adoption Session
    When: Wednesday, February 15, 2017
    Where: TBD

    You have been invited by NM leadership to participate in Research Clinical and Ancillary Tools session during the fourth round of Project One Adoption sessions. This session will cover workflows and content related to clinical research functionality, MyChart, recruiting, and release of information.

    Sessions will take place on the downtown campus, please work with your manager to prioritize your schedule to participate in these sessions. We request that you do not forward the Outlook invitations to others.

    Session Goals

    Adoption Sessions will provide the opportunity for participants to experience workflows within Epic using the newly-built NM system based on decisions made during Decision and Confirmation Sessions. This will allow participants to:

    • Confirm completed build in the NM Foundation system will meet functional requirements for workflows
    • Perform final review of workflows prior to testing
    • Confirm workflows can be adopted within each work area
    • Identify change impact(s) and how to operationalize these changes within each work area


    In addition to demonstrating the newly built workflows, we will also discuss the implications of the anticipated changes through the lens of the six questions below:

    • What changes must occur in your department to support this workflow?
    • How will your job (or the jobs of your teammates) change?
    • What benefits / value can we highlight in our communications?
    • What policies / procedures may change in your department?
    • What areas of the new workflow will require special emphasis in training?
    • How can the project team help you to prepare for changes before training begins?

    We look forward to working with you to shape the design of our system wide electronic medical record. Your time and effort will help achieve the Project One vision: enabling our premier, integrated academic health system to deliver world-class, compassionate care.

    For staff who need to charge time for participation, please use cost center 1237 in Kronos. For any additional session-related expenses such as train fare, please use department code 6040 with Project code 1150371 in PeopleSoft. If you have any questions, contact your manager.

    For information on Project One activities, please visit the Project One page on NMI. If you have questions, send an email to, or to any of the Project One Leaders.

  • Medical Record Changes Notice
    Dear Investigator,

    Because of changes being made to the medical record at Northwestern Medicine you may be at risk of loss of your research data, please read the following email.

    You are receiving this message because you are linked to a research study affiliated with Northwestern Medicine. As you may know, we are rebuilding our Epic platform to accommodate inpatient as well as outpatient care through an effort called Project One. We know that many of you have research related templates, workflow or other means of data capture that currently interfaces with Epic or Cerner (Power Chart). Without your active assistance to Project One it is highly likely those research tools and ability to collect data will break—perhaps preventing you from continuing to use our EHR systems to collect clinical data. Our number one reason for contacting you is to avoid this undesirable outcome.  To ensure that you continue to have access to the data you need after the Project One go-live date (March 2018), the Project One team needs your feedback to understand how you collect data from NM systems. There is significant risk that this project may hinder your ability to collect clinical information critical to the research you conduct, especially if you use Cerner/PowerChart currently.

    Please take the survey linked below to provide your feedback.  This survey is estimated to take 5-10 minutes to complete.
