New Feature: IREx API Allows Single IRBs to integrate their e-IRB System with IREx

The goal of the IREx API is to exchange data between a single IRB’s (sIRB) local electronic IRB (e-IRB) system and the IRB Reliance Exchange (IREx). Given that IREx captures (a) all the information an sIRB needs to review and grant initial IRB approval for a participating site and (b) the actual IRB approval information and documents for participating sites, the IREx API will facilitate bi-directional data exchange. The sIRB can pull participating site information from IREx into its e-IRB system for review and push participating site approvals to IREx to facilitate sIRB communications and approval notifications.
