RITHIM is a provincial initiative involving multiple stakeholders to improve time-to-conduct for health research in Manitoba.

RITHIM is unique across Canada in that it will harmonize ethics, privacy and institutional impact review processes, creating a more efficient process for health research reviews in Manitoba.

January 1st, 2022, was a key milestone and important step for the RITHIM program, as the PHIA amendments that enable RITHIM were proclaimed. RITHIM is now operating in a transitional phase until later in 2022, when the launch of the new electronic system will harmonize the application process and streamline reviews.
