The availability of research and outcomes data is the primary limitation to evidence-based practice. Today, only a fraction of clinical decisions are based upon evidence derived from randomized control trials (RCTs), the gold-standard of knowledge discovery. At the same time, clinical trial complexity has steadily increased as has the effort required at clinical investigational sites. Direct use of electronic health record (EHR) data for clinical trials has the potential to address some of these needs, improving data quality and reducing cost.
