Consent to Contact

The University of Miami’s Consent to Contact Initiative is a collaborative effort between stakeholders across the University of Miami and its health system to increase awareness of clinical studies among our diverse patient population.

It brings more opportunities for patients to learn about studies that may be appropriate for them while increasing our ability as an academic medical center to advance research and deliver transformational care to our patients.

UM researchers can utilize Consent to Contact as a resource for recruitment into clinical studies. To learn more and begin the process, click here.

Patients who have recently visited a UHealth doctor, clinic or medical center were likely asked if they want to be contacted about research studies that may be of interest to them. If you wish to opt in to the program or remove your name from the database, you may call or email your request to or 305-243-8888. If you want more information about what Consent to Contact is, click here to the FAQ page.


This effort is led by an operational committee, which includes representatives of the HIPAA Privacy & Security Office, UHealth Clinical Practice, Health Systems Access, Information Technology, IRB, the Office of the Execute Dean for Research, The Miami Clinical and Translational Science Institute, and the community. They are responsible for carefully reviewing all requests by University of Miami investigators to access patient contact information.
