Electronic Health Record (EHR) Campaign (NCI/SBM)

Edit this workspace

Currently EHRs fail to capture data reflecting crucial health behaviors and psychosocial issues. Such patient-reported variables are both health outcomes themselves, and major determinants of other health outcomes. Capturing a standardized set of patient-reported variables in the EHR would lead to unprecedented data harmonization and opportunities to improve health care and health research.

Several institutes from the National Institutes of Health, in collaboration with the Society of Behavioral Medicine, are organizing an effort to evaluate and recommend actionable, patient-reported measures of health behaviors and psychosocial factors for use in primary care electronic health records (EHRs).
