Raising Awareness

Leverage electronic medical records-based decision support and messaging capabilities for point-of-care recruitment.

This could include:


1) Using personal health record portals to support direct, interactive messaging between providers/staff and research participants and their family members.

2) Integrating automated paging, kiosk-based messaging “waiting room” mini-videos to support recruitment at the point of care.

3) Seeing how electronic medical records data capabilities might be used to generate lists of potential recruitment cohorts, with attention to privacy and consent.

4) Exploring opportunities to link electronic medical records to registry data.
