Where are we going: RHInnO Ethics v2.2

RHInnO Ethics has now been installed in many national and institutional research ethics committees (or 'institutional review boards')

RHinno Ethics 2.0 and 2.1 are ideal, cloud-based software solutions for effective and efficient management of all research ethics committee administration. But now we are going further to make it even better. RHinno Ethics 2.2 will have new functionalities that will improve quality, speed up multi-centre reviews, and add to the ongoing learning of research ethics committee members, reviewers and researchers.

EthiCALL adds two functions to RHInnO Ethics:

i) Set up a closed discussion group with other research ethics committees reviewing the same protocol – to discuss complex questions and reduce need for repetitive reviews when one or the other committee changes the protocol.
ii) Ask a question - about a problem you have - to a worldwide community of ethicists and research ethics committees members.

EthiXPERT: As soon as a new version of key ethics review guidelines becomes available, you will know it the same day. And, a bit later, a review of the key implications of any changes to review will be available as well.
