Velos eResearch Bulk Application Training
What is a Bulk Account? A bulk account is the mechanism used to charge Medical Center services to your study. A bulk account is required if: There are services billable to your study AND These services will be performed at a Medical Center location (there will be charges in Epic) If all of your services will be provided at School of Medicine or other non Medical Center locations, a bulk account is not required.
Transition to Velos Moving the bulk application process to Velos has a number of improvements: TRANSPARENCY! Everything is electronic – no more saving copies of spreadsheets and ing back and forth All changes to your application are tracked Improved communication – automatic notification when Laboratory or Imaging has approved your application or has questions Automatic notification when the “99” bulk number is created for your study Bulk applications will be associated with your study in Velos – everything is in the CTMS Forms can be worked on concurrently You are IN CONTROL!
Bulk Application Forms in Velos The current Bulk Application spreadsheet was segregated into 4 forms in Velos: Bulk Account Information Form Bulk Account Laboratory Form Bulk Account Imaging Form Bulk Account Billing Form For a new bulk account application, all four forms must have all mandatory fields populated and be saved as either: “Completed” for forms that DO NOT require approval (Bulk Information/Billing Form) or “Approved”/“Not Required” for the forms that DO require approval (Bulk Laboratory/Imaging Form) For changes to an approved bulk application, only the form with the information that must be changed has to be completed.
