Purpose

E-Consent is a multipurpose, scalable, electronic informed consent system that can be used in a multitude of settings. The platform allows research staff to easily upload multimedia information about a research protocol together with an approved informed consent. These materials are then delivered to potential study participants electronically, in an easy-to-understand and user-friendly way. The system is compatible with a wide range of devices and display sizes, including tablets, mobile devices, laptops, desktops, and others. Further details are available at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31349301.

E-Consent has been developed in collaboration with the Mount Sinai IRB to ensure regulatory compliance: IRB-19-02049 Assessment of Multipurpose Scalable Electronic Informed Consent Platform.
