Electronic Medical Records & Clinical Trials

An important centerpiece of President Obama’s stimulus package is to encourage electronic medical records (EMRs). Last September I made my own contribution regarding EMRs in an article for Applied Clinical Trials (“The Ins and Outs of EMRs.” I am posting it on the right under interesting articles. I am also posting a recent NPR article, “Electronic Medical Records, a Charged Debate.”

For those of us who monitor and audit EMRs for clinical trials this is a tricky issue. NPR points out it is a tricky issue for a number of other reasons. As always, I welcome your comments.

Update: See Update on EMRs under Interesting Articles for an update I wrote for Applied Clinical Trials online edition.
