Health IT Enabled Comparative Effectiveness Research Projects Highlighted
“Building Electronic Data Infrastructure for Comparative Effectiveness Research: Accomplishments, Lessons Learned and Future Steps” appear online in the Journal of Comparative Effectiveness Research. The article highlights findings from nearly $100 million of investments in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act projects managed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. The 12 projects built an electronic clinical data infrastructure that connects research with healthcare delivery. This infrastructure can be used for research, safety surveillance, quality improvement and clinical care. The achievements and lessons learned from these projects provided a foundation for a national patient-centered clinical research network (PCORnet) and will help to guide future infrastructure development needed to build an efficient, scalable and sustainable learning health system.
