Abstract: Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER), which is being rechristened “Patient-Centered Outcomes Research” (PCOR), is all about using clinical outcomes research comparing different interventions and strategies to prevent, diagnose, treat and monitor health conditions. What’s known is that CER/PCOR is impossible without clinical data interoperability; what’s unclear is how to create simple, practical, solutions to data interoperability without creating or buying mountains of systems. Join me in this talk where I will review an open source architecture that can be implemented in almost any clinical setting to increase and improve the amount of clinical data available to feed CER and PCOR initiatives.

If you’d like directions to the NIH Clinical Center or the Hatfield Room please drop Shahid a note at speaking@shahidshah.com.
