Follow these steps to enroll and start your monthly health survey for NMSOAP:
Have a conversation with your doctor or pharmacist
Participation in the NMSOAP starts with a conversation with your doctor, pharmacist or other healthcare provider to confirm you are on one of the medications being evaluated in NMSOAP studies and to initiate the registration process.
Enroll in the study, with your healthcare provider’s help
To ensure your privacy and protect your health information, enrollment is initiated by your healthcare provider. He/she will enter your contact information into the NMSOAP system and then help you to complete the required forms, including informed consent and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) authorization form. Now, you are ready to register!
Register — so you can take the survey each month
Once you are entered into the NMSOAP program, you will be able to complete your registration, electronically sign required forms, and create an account log-in and password to access your monthly survey.
Take the survey
The first survey will collect baseline information about you. Moving forward, you will be prompted each month to take the NMSOAP survey so that the program can collect your real-time experiences with your medication. The monthly survey generally takes 5 to 10 minutes to complete and includes specific questions about how you are feeling, how often you are taking your medications, and any side effects you may be experiencing. Surveys can be taken online (computer, smart phone or tablet), via a phone call with a representative from NMSOAP, or, in some cases, at your local pharmacy.
Learn about the “voice of patient” from thousands of people just like you
As a participant, you will have access to periodic NMSOAP reports. You will be able to see how your experiences compare to thousands of other patients just like you who are taking the same daily medication and managing the same health conditions.
