The official University of Utah Protocol Billing Grid (PBG) is now electronic – and interactive with the new EPIC clinical billing system. A central feature ofUniversity Tracking of Clinical Research (uTRAC), the electronic management system required of all clinical research (CR) studies, the electronic PBG performs several crucial automations: a single visit schedule that populates each participant’s study dates and events; federally compliant CR pricing; comprehensive budgeting of all per-participant costs; application of required CR modifiers for billing to federal insurance; and routing of study billing for electronic payment. The original PBG, accessible through the link above, is an Excel spreadsheet that study teams may use for quick paper documentation.
