Making Real-World EHR Data Accessible for Research
Real-World EHR data is a key ingredient for conducting prospective clinical trials, observational studies, and health data science research. Deployment of tools, techniques and engagement methods for improved accessibility of clinical data to research community is highly important for increasing research productivity. The University of Missouri (MU) School of Medicine is modernizing the data and computational infrastructure for supporting its NextGen Precision Health Initiative that aligns with the national efforts such as the PCORnet Clinical Research Network (PCORnet CRN) and CTSA Accrual to Clinical Trials Network (CTSA ACT). The presentation will primarily focus on data warehousing, technology architecture, record linkage, data quality, and accessibility of data for research.
