Course Description

The FDA recognizes Electronic Health Records (EHRs) as data originators and in many cases, source documentation, which therefore subjects them to inspection. In its draft guidance for the Use of Electronic Health Record Data in Clinical Trials, the FDA expands upon prior guidance and provides its recommendations on the use of EHRs as source, and also outlines the responsibilities for ensuring quality and integrity of EHR data. As such, EHRs should be able to be obtained from multiple sources, they should be shareable, interoperable, and accessible to authorized parties. This web seminar will address recommendations for the use of EHRs as source data in clinical trials.
