Check each of the following that apply to your study.
Individual signed informed consent will be obtained for each patient (subject).
I will be obtaining ALL data on my own, WITHOUT the help of R3.
I am interested in receiving an estimate of R3 service costs (e.g. for a grant proposal).
I am interested in receiving counts of patients to plan my research (e.g. prep to research).
I am interested in receiving a list of patient identifiers (e.g. for recruitment OR chart review).
I am interested in receiving patient data from R3 (e.g. identified or de-identified).


After R3 Intake is successfully submitted, the next step in the R3 workflow is to discuss feasibility of the request.
After submission, please email healthR3@pitt.edu with proposed times
or visit us without appointment during R3 office hours (see https://rio.pitt.edu/services for dates and times).
If the study consents patients AND does NOT require R3 service to obtain patient data (i.e. both boxes are checked in the form above),
then the R3 workflow is complete upon submission and further communication is not required.
