Data Commitments Tracking
KPNW research projects make data commitments to collaborating institutions to share, destroy, or secure data on behalf of the organization. The Data Commitments Tracking System is the mechanism by which the Center for Health Research tracks and maintains these commitments.
The system is also used to track the agreements that define how the data commitments are to be carried out, including Data Use Agreements (DUAs) and other types of contracts.
Data Transfer Requests (DTRs) allow Compliance and IT Security to verify that disclosures of data to collaborators are consistent with the commitments for the project and compliant with applicable law, regulation, and policy. All DTRs are submitted, reviewed, and approved through Data Commitments Tracking.
NOTE: The Tracking System and User Guide are only available to CHR employees. If you are a researcher in the KPNW delivery system, please work with your CHR collaborator to complete any required data commitments tracking. If you are sending data outside the KPNW region and do not have a CHR collaborator, please contact CHR_ComplianceApprovals@kpchr.org.
