Workshop on Interoperability Challenges for enabling secondary use of Electronic Health Records — ICEH 2014

Call For Abstracts

Enabling re-use of patient data collected during clinical care will considerably ease the conduct of clinical trials and also enable more pro-active pharmacovigilance studies for reinforcing patient safety. A major barrier to repurposing routinely collected data for clinical research and patient safety is the heterogeneity of healthcare information systems. In addition to the heterogeneity of healthcare information systems, both domains--patient care and clinical research--use different schemas and terminology systems. The collective international efforts of multiple organizations (such as ISO, HL7, CDISC, IHE etc) currently focuses on defining the various standards required to achieve technical and semantic interoperability and bridge the gap between clinical research, pharmacoviligance and patient care.

The aim of this workshop is to present and discuss research issues and efforts in developing interoperability architectures for enabling re-using of electronic healthcare records and other sources of patient data for pharmacovigilance studies and clinical trials. We invite abstract submissions on the following related topics:

- Standardization activities to bridge clinical care and research domains
- Terminology reasoning for enabling re-use of EHRs in clinical research studies
- Semantic models of eligibility criteria for patient selection for clinical research studies
- Use of ontologies and semantic mediation mechanisms enabling re-use of EHRs in clinical research studies
- Syntactic and technical interoperability challenges for accessing EHRs for clinical research studies
- Use of metadata repositories for enabling re-use of EHRs in clinical research studies
- Use of linked data for clinical research studies
