Vancouver health and population research leaders as well as clinical data managers and analysts from the lower mainland Health Authorities.
The increased use of electronic Health Records (eHR) in clinical settings is enabling the development of new methodologies in health research. In many institutions across the world, rich clinical data is now extracted from eHRs, anonymized, and made available to the research community for epidemiologic, quality improvement, surveillance, or other studies. In the current context leading to eHR implementation across Vancouver lower mainland, we believe it is important for researchers and administrators to understand the opportunities and challenges in using eHRs for research. This monthly seminar series will showcase real examples from leaders in the field, focusing both on the methodology and the vision forward. It will alternate location between the Child and Family Research Institute, Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute, and Providence Health Care Research Institute.
