EHRs outshine traditional clinical trials [VIDEO]


Doctors rely on clinical trial results to get the information they need to help treat patients. Getting this data can sometimes take years – but what if there was a better way? According to a new study, EHRs can get doctors access to clear, organized data in much less time.

Medical News Today reported on the study, which found that using EHRs to identify the best treatment option for patients is both more efficient and less expensive than using the traditional clinical trial process.

By analyzing EHR, researchers from the University of Manchester's Health eResearch Center were able to understand health patterns associated with certain medications and determine which treatments would be most effective for patients.

What has your experience with clinical trials been like? Wouldn't faster access to reliable data be beneficial to your practice?
