Releasing Data to Other Parties

There are multiple federal regulations that impact your ability to release data outside your institution (to a sponsor, to another researcher, etc). There are a variety of factors that determine whether or not the release is permissible.

  • Is there a consent/authorization? If so, what did the research subject consent to/authorize?
  • Is the data that you wish to release unequivocally anonymous, or is it possible to trace the data back to the subject? HIPAA standards apply, so dates, diagnosis, location (e.g. Shands @ UF), etc may make the data identifiable.
  • If data was obtained under an IRB approved waiver are you tracking disclosures of PHI per HIPAA regulations?

There are a variety of very serious factors that impact your ability to release data to outside parties. You should contact the IRB prior to proceeding with a release of data UNLESS (a) your subject signed an IRB approved consent document with HIPAA compliant authorization language that clearly details what information will be collected, used, and disclosed and (b) the outside party is specified in the document.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
