For Researchers

The Norton Healthcare Research Office helps with all aspects of a study proposal. Find out about starting a trial, learn about applications and requirements, and get access to policies and forms.

If you are a member of a study team conducting a research project at a Norton Healthcare facility and have concerns regarding that study, call (502) 629-3500 or email ro@nortonhealthcare.org for assistance.

Norton Healthcare has approximately 900 active studies at any given time, which are overseen by the Norton Healthcare Research Office. The Norton Healthcare Research Office provides full-service research support, including Medicare coverage analysis, budgeting, contracting, regulatory support, compliance, data request review and education. The level of support provided will depend on the type of study and whether the researcher is a research partner (University of Louisville or a community practice researcher) or employed by Norton Healthcare.

To conduct research in a Norton Healthcare facility, researchers must submit the project to the Norton Healthcare Research Office and an Institutional Review Board (IRB) for review. The Norton Healthcare Research Office will review research submissions to ensure regulatory and institutional requirements are met. Additional approvals may be required, such as facility leadership, unit approval, ancillary service approval. Do not begin your research project until all required approvals have been obtained.
