Allina Health Research Administration

Allina Health Research Administration

Allina Health Research Administration assists researchers in meeting regulatory obligations in the areas of human research protections, HIPAA privacy in research, research billing, and the financial management of grants and contracts.

We are comprised of three areas:

  • The Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) and its Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) protect the rights and welfare of subjects who participate in human subjects research conducted in Allina Health facilities or by Allina Health employees or agents. Designated IRBs provide review and ongoing oversight of human subjects research.
  • The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) is responsible for research billing compliance, the financial management of government grants and other sponsored project funds award to Allina Health.
  • The Clinical Research Informatics and Analytics(CRIA) team is composed of staff with expertise in health informatics, project management, data extraction and report writing, and statistics. CRIA collaborates with various teams at Allina Health to provide comprehensive research support services related to research data access, use, and disclosure.

New to research at Allina Health?

Your project may require prior approval. All research conducted at an Allina Health facility and/or by Allina Health employees or agents must follow applicable policies and procedures.

 Answers to theses questions will help determine whether your project requires prior approval from the Human Research Protections Program (HRPP) and/or Office of Sponsored Programs.

The mission of Allina Health's human research protection program is to protect the rights and welfare of subjects involved in human research under the auspices of Allina Health which includes research conducted at or using any property or facility of Allina Health, conducted by or under the direction of any employee or agent of Allina Health (including students) in connection with their Allina Health position or responsibilities, and research involving the use of Allina Health's non-public information (e.g., medical records) to identify, contact, or study human subjects.

All such research must be submitted to an Allina Health-designated IRB. For more information, please contact the IRB Administrative Office at irb@allina.com or 612-262-4920.

If the answer is NO, your project does not need to be reviewed by the Allina Health Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP).

If the answer is YES, you will need to submit your project for OSP review.

A sponsored project is any program, project, or study supported in full or in part by funding from outside sources that requires specific performance or specified commitment of effort by Allina Health or in any way obligates an Allina Health business unit to any type of performance or resource commitment.

In order to remain compliant with Allina Health policies, all grant applications for government funding must be reviewed and approved by the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) prior to submission to the funding agency. In accordance with the policy, individuals who receive a notice of grant award must notify OSP for review and post-award monitoring.
