Current Wait Times & Fees 

Research teams should plan for several weeks between a finalized CDW-R data request (including a complete CDW-R data request form, confirmation of IRB protocol approval/determination, confirmation of any special approvals, and an account number supplied to cdw@bmc.org) and receipt of the data.


June 2023 Wait Times


The CDW-R team will not add incomplete data requests to the work queue.

Research teams must provide a funding account number and notification of all necessary approvals to cdw@bmc.org before a data request will be added to our work queue.

If an account number and/or approvals are not finalized at the time of data request submission, email cdw@bmc.org to alert our team when your data request is ready-to-go.

If you are interested in speaking with the CDW-R team about your study or request, email cdw@bmc.org. Research teams do not need to submit a data request form to request a consultation. If you are concerned about CDW-R fees, please reach out to schedule a consultation. We can work with you to keep costs low.
