- Next, assign the study as a Random Split or All Investigators. Random Split will cause a subset of the patients to be assigned to each investigator, whereas the All Investigators option will have each patient assigned to all investigators. Additionally, you may check the box if you wish to have patients be able to access their Investigator's reviews and receive notifications. When ready, click Create Study.
