Customer: Childrens National Hospital

#5 childrens hospital in the United States serving child healthcare needs in the Washington DC area has a mission to advance pediatric care and research in neuroscience, genetics, developmentaldisorders, cancer, cardiovascular, nephrology, diabetes, and endocrinology.


The Principal Investigator has an ongoing long-term biospecimen collection study to advance genetic research. However, the PI was frustrated by
  • The amount of PI time involved in obtaining informed consents or assents from maternal and pediatric participants.
  • Repetitive task of explaining the same study details to each participant.
  • Requiring participants to travel to the hospital in downtown Washington DC to provide paper based informed consent resulting in a low number of participants willing to travel to CNH in Washington DC to provide informed consent.
