Assessing Real-World Data From Electronic Health Records (EHRs) for HTA
Moderator: Scott Ramsey, MD, PhD, Hutchinson Institute for Cancer Outcomes Research, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, Seattle, WA, USA
Speakers: Rachael Fleurence, PhD, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA; Seamus Kent, PhD, Flatiron Health, Amsterdam, NH, Netherlands; Blythe Adamson, PhD, MPH, Flatiron Health, New York, NY, USA
During the presentation, speakers will provide a brief overview of EHR data guidelines by NICE in the UK, ICER in the US, and CADTH in Canada. They will summarize published data quality frameworks and highlight key domains that should be required for HTAs (example: representativeness, completeness and accuracy). Speakers will then discuss data provider issues, such as method transparency for extracting data and approaches for integrating structured versus unstructured data, including use of common data models.
An important deliverable of the report is a data quality checklist for use of EHR-derived data. The panel will discuss challenges to and opportunities for developing such as checklist. Finally, speakers will highlight continuing limitations of EHR data, including the lack of representativeness, privacy and confidentiality issues, consent issues, data security concerns and funding sources. The panel will conclude with a discussion on future directions as the field continues to evolve rapidly. Presented by the ISPOR Use of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) in HTA Task Force.
