Project Description: Consent2Share is an innovative UF program that allows patients, at the point of care, to consent to be re-contacted for future research studies in which they may be eligible to participate. Consent2Share is co-led by the Chair of the UF IRB and the Director of the Integrated Data Repository. Consent2Share data are then loaded into i2b2, so researchers can query for the number of patients who have consented to be contacted about research studies for which they might be eligible.

As of September 2014, more than 17,000 patients have enrolled in Consent2Share. Of approached patients, 84% agreed to be re-contacted and 4,157 patient names have been released to researchers across 10 protocols for participant recruitment. In 2015, an electronic consent for with electronic signature via EPIC will allow enterprise wide expansion to include all patients being seen at UH Health.
