Honest Broker

Here to Assist You

SHORA provides an honest broker service to assist with study design and the conduct of research. Prior to IRB approval, our honest brokers are available to provide a quick determination of patient numbers that can inform feasibility and study design. Post-IRB approval, our honest brokers may build data sets of protected health information and share de-identified parts of those data sets with researchers who should not have access to the entire set. For more information or to request assistance please contact us at researchassist@spectrumhealth.org.
