The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Monday released draft guidance to assist clinical trial sponsors, investigators, contract research organizations (CROs), institutional review boards (IRBs) and other using electronic health record (EHR) data in FDA-regulated clinical investigations. The 12-page guidance is meant to facilitate the use of EHR data in clinical trials and “promote the interoperability of EHRs and electronic systems supporting such trials.” (raps.org)
