An effort to develop an information architecture that supports electronic practice-based research networks has been started jointly by the United States and Britain. This enables the linking of separate electronic health record systems and provides a foundation for software development.

This topic was found on Fierce Health IT in their article, “Researchers develop architecture to support practice-based research networks.” A faster and more efficient infrastructure will result and allow rapid advances in a variety of areas, including comparative effectiveness research, patient safety, and clinical trials.

Having access to data with no hassles or hurdles, especially when it is clinical data, is a good thing and important to a successful data management system. Access Innovations wants you to have access to your data. They are one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
