Protocol Builder

Protocol Builder

Protocol Builder is a first of its kind solution that makes writing investigator-initiated protocols faster and easier, and helps ensure protocols meet IRB and regulatory standards. 

With Protocol Builder you will be able to:

  • Develop protocols more easily with step-by-step guidance and expert tips

  • Help ensure correct topics are included with 16 templates based on protocol type

  • Streamline tasks with tools that automate time consuming processes, like creating the glossary and reference sections

  • Improve adherence to IRB and regulatory standards with resources, including links to FDA information and required forms

  • Help avoid multiple rounds of revision with checks for accuracy and completeness

Protocol Builder is available to study teams for Investigator – Initiated protocols in an effort to increase the efficiency and quality of protocol writing for the Ochsner research community. Over the next few weeks, the protocol templates located on the ERSA website will be eliminated and all Investigator-Initiated studies will be required to use Protocol Builder.

A User Guide can be found on the Protocol Builder website at https://app.protocolbuilderpro.com/user-guide
