Electronic Medical Records (eMedical Records/EMR) and Electronic Health Records (EHR) are becoming more and more significant in the delivery of quality healthcare.

These EMR and EHR systems are designed based on critical data elements commonly used for collection of medical history and made available in clinical care as well as in research. This one-hour webinar, presented by Robert Gore-Langton, PhD, of the EMMES Corporation and Betty Tai, PhD, Director of the CTN at NIDA, will discussed the differences between EMRs and EHRs, Common Data Elements (CDEs), and implications for use in research projects on Substance Use Disorders.

Learning objectives included:

  • Define the differences between eMedical Records/EMRs and EHRs.
  • Explain the use of CDEs in clinical care and clinical research.
  • Outline the role of CDEs for substance use disorders in an integrated vision of clinical care and research.

This webinar is aimed at all interested investigators, clinicians, statisticians, and other research staff. (Webinar, Video, PDF, English, 2015)
