The Electronic Data Methods (EDM) Forum — designed to advance the dialogue on the use electronic clinical data for comparative effectiveness research (CER), patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR), quality improvement (QI) and support of clinical care — is seeking input to develop a framework for assessing the quality of data in electronic databases. The project is aimed at developing a framework to help clinical investigators, patients, and policy makers understand the strengths, weaknesses and limitations of observational data used to generate new clinical knowledge. Participants may access the framework and submit feedback through the EDM Forum Wiki page. Stakeholders are also invited to participate in a brief survey on data quality assessment needs.
