U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Begins National Rollout of WCG’s IRBNet

Published on: 

WCG announced that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) Office of Research and Development is successfully implementing WCG’s IRBNet electronic submission and review system for more than 100 VA medical centers (VAMCs) that have research programs.

In 2019, the VA selected IRBNet over other available solutions as the best solution to meet its complex research and compliance needs on an enterprise scale and to standardize processes among all sites. IRBNet provides technology-supported workflow, communication and documentation capabilities, assisting IRB compliance with ethical and regulatory standards for the inclusion of appropriate human subject protections, and the oversight of study conduct as mandated by federal guidelines.

“We are delighted that all the VA sites will now be using IRBNet. We specifically designed the platform to facilitate IRB compliance and increase productivity,” said Jeremy Katz, President, WCG IRBNet. “By reducing VA IRB staff’s administrative burden, IRBNet allows them to devote more time to other high priority activities, such as training and protocol development.”
