Carolinas HealthCare System is committed to conducting its business and research in accordance with the laws, regulations and standards to which healthcare organizations and researchers are held. Integrity is one of the core values of Carolinas HealthCare System. All teammates and collaborators are expected to uphold standards to promote an environment of integrity, ethics and safety.
Please reference these pages as well as the Carolinas HealthCare System Code of Business Conduct and the administrative policies for research (policies are available to teammates on the company intranet).
The Corporate Compliance Research Matrix (an ancillary group within Corporate Compliance) was formed in 2005 in collaboration with the Office of Clinical and Translational Research (OCTR) and is dedicated to dealing with compliance issues unique to the conduct of research at Carolinas HealthCare System; prior to that year, compliance was monitored directly by the OCTR.
The Research Compliance and Privacy program is guided via the Carolinas HealthCare System Research Administrative Policies and Standard Operating Procedures that are published, teammates are trained on and conformance is monitored internally. These policies and procedures cover our Human Research Protection Program, Comparative Medicine Research and Translational Research.
