The EDM Forum aims to advance the national dialogue on the use of electronic clinical data for the conduct of CER, quality improvement, and clinical decision support by facilitating exchange and collaboration between the eleven projects within the Prospective Outcome Systems using Patient-specific Electronic data to Compare Tests and therapies (PROSPECT) studies, Scalable Distributed Research Networks (DRN) for CER, and Enhanced Registries for Quality Improvement (QI) and CER grant programs.The CER Project Profiles report, released in February 2012, provides a background and profiles for each of the projects.

Priority Populations and Conditions
The PROSPECT, Scalable Distributed Research Network, and Enhanced Registry projects address more than half of the priority populations and conditions outlined by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). A full list of all AHRQ priority populations and conditions may be found on the AHRQ Effective Health Care Program web site.
