JERICHO, N.Y., Sept. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Care Compliance Strategies, Inc. (HCCS) announced today that The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) has selected the HCCS COI-SMART system to automate their conflict of interest disclosure process.

"We selected COI-SMART for its functionality, ease of use and scalability to meet the new NIH requirements for PHS grants and contracts," says Eric Mah, Senior Director, Research - UCSF. "With a large number of users involved in many research projects, it was imperative to have a flexible system that could be implemented quickly and would make the disclosure process straightforward and easy for our research investigators and administrators alike. HCCS' customer service and responsiveness is second to none."

COI-SMART provides full back-end management and reporting to eliminate paper-based conflict of interest disclosure management. Universities and other organizations see improved control and reduced risk. The system provides for the development of multi-level branching questionnaires, automated assignment of reviewers, the development of COI management plans, and data mining tools for auditing, tracking and reporting on potential conflicts of interest.

COI-SMART can be used for an annual COI survey process as well as for transactional or "elective" questionnaires. The system includes role-based tiered questions that allow respondents to provide detailed responses. Administrative dashboards provide a graphical representation of the status of the COI disclosure process.

"We're excited to bring COI-SMART to The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF)," says Ben Diamond, President of HCCS. "We are pleased that UCSF has determined that the unique features and user interface in COI-SMART will help to facilitate their process of disclosing, tracking, managing and reporting on potential conflicts of interest."

COI-SMART offers a Quick-Start Option to facilitate compliance for PHS funded research with the new NIH COI regulations.
