Electronic Health Record Integration (EHRI)
Return to Projects Page.
EHR (Electronic Health Record) Integration entails developing methodologies and best practices for not only the incorporation of a patient’s genomic data into the EHR but also the usability of these data by physicians and patients. Integration of genomic information into the EHR and delivery of clinical genomic decision support utilizing electronic medical records requires: building and implementing the necessary infrastructure for housing, interpreting, and sharing data; defining standards, creation of user-friendly portals that provide relevant information for the targeted audience; and the buy-in from institutions. The eMERGE Network is actively working through all steps of this process to make select data available at all network sites. Through this process, genomic data can be more readily available for use by physicians and researchers to improve clinical care.
