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.
