Cooperative Primary Healthcare Data Sharing and Analytics Network Infrastructure

An increasing number of primary health care clinics have made the transition from paper-based record keeping to computer-based patient information systems, so-called electronic medical record (EMR) systems. One advantage of using EMRs is that data becomes more readily accessible for computer-based analytics in order to inform medical research and investigate compliance to clinical guidelines on evidence-based best practices. This vision of making primary care EMR data available for increasing quality of care and generating evidence for medical research requires a computer network infrastructure that allows connects all participating EMRs. Realizing such a computer network infrastructure poses significant research challenges with respect to informational privacy, security, and interoperability of heterogeneous EMR data models and system architectures. Objective of this project cluster is to address these challenges and develop software and system architecture in support of a computer network infrastructure for primary health care data sharing and analytics.
