health services research, electronic clinical data, learning health system, translation, dissemination
The field of health services research faces significant challenges as it aims to address pressing issues of quality and cost in the US healthcare system. Major advances in the availability of electronic clinical data (ECD) provide the opportunity to address questions that are important to the recipients, providers, and purchasers of health care. This is where eGEMs has a role to play, meeting an expressed need in the scientific community by disseminating approaches and methods for using ECD. eGEM’s efforts can help researchers answer these important questions and consider strategies to further improve the US healthcare system.
