Abstract

Electronic health records in hospitals contribute to improving the quality of care by enabling better management of clinical information. The databases thus constituted facilitate the exchange of health information with healthcare providers and optimize multidisciplinary coordination for better therapeutic results. The EHR4CR (Electronic Health Records for Clinical Research) European project has developed an innovative pilot platform enabling the reuse of this digital information for clinical research. By enhancing and speeding up clinical research procedures, this innovative approach makes it possible to conduct clinical trials more efficiently, faster, and more economically.
