An Introduction to ANDHII with creator William Murphy, MS, RDN

Basics: Getting Started and Basic Functionality

Participating in ANDHII at Your Facility

ANDHII has been designed to work within the regulations and guidance issued by the Office for Civil Rights and Office for Human Research Protections so that the data collected would not be Protected Health Information and the collection process would not constitute Human Subjects Research. As a result, using ANDHII in accordance with regulations and its End User License Agreement for the collection of de-identified data regarding routine care would not require HIPAA Authorizations, Business Associate Agreements, or local Institutional Review. We provide the letter linked below to aid potential participants in discussing how we have accomplished this with their facility's Privacy Officer.
