NIH Collaboratory Grand Rounds will launch a special workshop series next month to explore challenges and opportunities in using electronic health records (EHRs) in pragmatic clinical trials. The series will highlight advances in digital health, new approaches and evolving standards for EHRs, and implications for researchers conducting pragmatic trials.
The webinar series, Advances at the Intersection of Digital Health, Electronic Health Records and Pragmatic Clinical Trials, will kick off on May 1 with a keynote presentation by Dr. Robert Califf, head of strategy and policy for Verily Life Sciences and Google Health.
The new Grand Rounds series will include moderated panel discussions that focus on the use of digital technologies in pragmatic clinical trials, case examples from the NIH Collaboratory Demonstration Projects, and recent initiatives from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology to reshape standards and drive the evolution of EHRs in healthcare and research. A podcast discussion with a panel of experts will wrap up the series in July.
