Clinical Research Calendar Review & Analysis Office (CRAO)


CRAO manages research medical billing for U-M. They provide training, resources, and support for study teams who have billable services included as part of their research. If you are doing a clinical trial, first check with your CTSU; otherwise, make sure you are familiar with CRAO before submitting your IRB application if you have any billable services.


Clinical Research Calendar Review & Analysis Office (CRAO)
The Clinical Research Calendar Review & Analysis Office (CRAO), which is a part of the Medical School Office of Research, was created to ensure items/services that research teams intend to bill to Medicare and other third-party payers are consistent with federal regulations. All clinical research that involves billable items and services is required to have a billing calendar, which must be submitted to CRAO.
