The Informatics team at UNC Chapel Hill’s CTSA used an electronic workflow to recruit participants to the ADAPTABLE study. Tools used were the Epic EHR (particularly the patient portal, MyChart) and REDCap. These materials will help other institutions wishing to recruit study participants via Epic MyChart and/or bulk email from REDCap.
