The critical challenge is to develop a standards-based BMT electronic medical record (EMR) and integrate research capacity into the architecture of EMR systems. The ultimate goal would be to build de-identified complete data-sets which can be used to support observational studies and clinical trials, improve transplant outcomes and inform public policy.
Rare disease suffer from poorly organized or unfunded networks of researchers and clinicians. Define cross-platform minimal datasets for EMRs using collaborative grants for researchers and EMR companies
How can guideline recommendations be implemented into community practice in a way that is feasible, usable, relevant, and cost-effective? (examples are use of care management, translation of chronic care model, and EMR based tools)
What is necessary for Electronic Medical Records / Electronic Health Records (EMR/EHR) to be used more to increase acceptance of clinical practice guidelines?
