Reading RWD from EHR
Domain knowledge
Electronic health records (EHRs) contain a diverse array of structured and unstructured data which can be used in research requiring real world data, but most data are unstructured. Some is pre-extracted, meaning select EHR data are captured and entered into repositories like disease or product registers. Data of this kind can have limitations, being only a subset of all that are available, and may not contain all variables needed to yield correct conclusions.
