Participants are unable to view radiology or lab test results that have been formally associated to the research study in MiChart. Results with no research study association will be visible to the participant. Participants will still be able to utilize all other functionality of the Patient Portal such as refilling prescriptions, paying bills, setting up appointments, etc. It is not possible to shield outpatient medication lists from the participant’s view at this time. If viewing their outpatient medication list would unblind participants, instruct them to avoid viewing the medication list for the necessary time period.
For all research studies, “Research Visit Notes” entered in MiChart are not visible to patients during the conduct of a study. HITS is developing the functionality to release Research Visit Notes and any previously shielded test results when a study is finished.
Note that if a research note is inadvertently entered as a clinical Progress Note, it will be shared, by default, once signed by the provider.
