About Us

The Office of Research Integrity (ORI) oversees the ethical and compliance aspects of research at AdventHealth, formerly Florida Hospital.

  • Research Billing Compliance and Education seeks to ensure that AdventHealth researchers use proper billing practices when billing services provided as part of a research study by conducting education, audits, and facilitating intradepartmental processes.
  • Responsible Study Conduct Compliance and Education is committed to ethically responsible research and good clinical practice. Consultations and audits are available as tools to enhancing the quality of research and the responsible conduct of research.
  • The Institutional Review Board (IRB) reviews all research conducted at AdventHealth or by AdventHealth employees/agents to ensure ethical standards, scientific merit and regulatory compliance. The IRB’s primary responsibility is to protect those who volunteer to participate in research studies. The IRB maintains separate webpages. Click here to access the IRB webpages.
