The Data Protection Attestation available here outlines expectations for the protection of patient data and serves as a data use agreement to enable the sharing of limited data sets among JHU researchers, (both those in and outside of the JHM covered entity).
As of 8/26/2021, when study team members “agree to participate” for any study in eIRB and when a PI submits a new application or further study action, researchers agree to the terms of the Data Protection Attestation.
This new change eliminates the need to upload a separate Use of Data Agreement when using data that represents 500 or more JHM patient records and eliminates the need to execute a separate DUA outside of the eIRB system for most transfers of a limited data set to JHU collaborators.
APL researchers still require a Data Use Agreement in many circumstances. For more information, see the Data Protection Attestation Frequently Asked Questions.
