BRANY Announces Launch of Informed Consent Builder Tool

New cloud-based application improves collaboration in developing compliant informed consent forms for research

A new addition to the Protocol Builder® line of products, Informed Consent Builder™, was announced today. The cloud-based application is available as a fully integrated add-on to the protocol writing application or as a standalone product.

“Our customers were asking for a solution that would create compliant informed consent forms for research with the same ease that Protocol Builder® creates detailed clinical research protocols,” says Paddy Mullen, President & CEO of BRANY.

Informed Consent Builder™ is a natural extension of the suite of tools that we offer both large and small institutions, as well as biopharmaceutical companies and CROs. Informed Consent Builder™ can be an out-of-the-box solution, or it can be customized to comply with institutional legal and IRB requirements and policies. The tool complies with the latest regulatory guidance for research informed consent forms while allowing the flexibility of customization.”

Informed Consent Builder™ was designed to ensure more accurate research consent forms and eliminate process inefficiencies and time-consuming tasks. It establishes one portal for investigators, research coordinators, and IRB administrators to collaborate on and manage informed consent forms.

Protocol Builder® and Informed Consent Builder™ are powered by BRANY, a national leader in IRB review, research/clinical trial support services, research and higher education compliance training.
