Add additional personnel to PennChart Research Studies Record

You are now able to request personnel updates to the PennChart research study record which provides the security to associate patients to studies and link encounters. To add or remove study personnel to the PennChart record, please complete this RedCap survey.

If you need to add personnel to more than one protocol, please fill out a separate RedCap survey.

Please note: Study coordinators must have completed the PennChart Research Workflow course in order to be added to the study team record in PennChart.

All personnel change requests will be communicated to your Business Administrator.

If you are a BA, your current RBA workflow will not change. If you need to add more than two coordinators to a study please use the RedCap survey to do so.


Cost Finder Application

Costfinder is a tool that provides the research rates for both Hospital Billing (HB) and Professional Billing (PB) components of an item/service/procedure. Please update any bookmarks or favorites to reference the new link as the old Costfinder site has been retired. Please note that you must select at least one entity (HUP, PPMC, PAH OR CCH) prior to searching for results as pricing may vary by entity. You are able to search by CPT code (preferred) or procedure name. 

You may access the CostFinder tool through http://my.med.upenn.edu/
