An article on the Healthcare Innovation website last week highlighted the launch of the NIH Collaboratory’s special Grand Rounds series on electronic health records (EHRs). The article discusses a presentation by Dr. Robert Califf, head of strategy and policy for Verily Life Sciences and Google Health, who envisioned how the healthcare system can learn from innovations being implementing during the COVID-19 emergency. Dr. Califf gave the opening keynote address for the EHR workshop series.
The article mentions the new Healthcare Worker Exposure Response and Outcomes (HERO) registry, funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), and the RECOVERY Trial, a national platform trial in the United Kingdom. Both of these COVID-19 studies were recently featured on NIH Collaboratory Grand Rounds.
