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.

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.
