Evidence, Data, & Methods to Build Learning Health Systems of the Future

The EDM Forum was established in 2010 with support from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to advance the national dialogue on the use of electronic health data for research and quality improvement. The EDM Forum facilitates learning and collaboration among researchers and other key stakeholders who are generating the data, methods and evidence needed to build learning health systems that will improve patient care and outcomes.

Call for Comments: Contribute to Data Quality Standards for PCOR!

There are currently no standard practices and metrics to describe the quality of data obtained from electronic health records and other data collected during routine clinical care. As a result, the current process is ad-hoc and can make it difficult for data users and data consumers to understand how good the data is for a particular purpose or finding. To address these issues, a recent PCORI project has developed a proposed framework for standards to assess data quality. Comments are requested by April 29, 2014.

EDM Forum Call for Proposals - Deadline June 18, 2014

The EDM Forum is pleased to announce support up to four, one-year projects to support collaboration on topics related to building infrastructure and conducting comparative effectiveness research, patient-centered outcomes research, and quality improvement with electronic health data. Projects will develop approaches to analytic methods, clinical informatics, and governance to build learning health systems that support useful innovations in health care quality, population health, and discovery. All proposals must be collaboratively designed and executed, drawing on the perspectives of multiple initiatives and stakeholder groups. The submission deadline is June 18, 2014.
