HL7 and NCI collaborate on clinical trial link to EHR

The HL7 group is trying to do UML models for almost anything that has health related data. This new initiative is a hat tip to Big Data and Public Health. The patient, the little guy in the whole operation, might even benefit. Hopefully, there will no longer be a disconnect between the evidence collected through participation in clinical trials, and electronic medical records. That goes as well for Personal Health Records. Both record systems are potentially rich sources of evidence based medical data, if only there were more efficient ways to capture it, without jeopardizing the autonomy and consent of patients. http://www.fiercehealthit.com/story/hl7-and-nci-collaborate-clinical-trial-link-ehrs/2012-02-28
