Beskow LM. Brelsford KM, Hammack CM. Patient perspectives on use of electronic health records for research recruitment. BMC medical research methodology. 2019 Feb 26;19(19). 42 p. PMID: 30808279 [PubMed] PMCID: PMC6390331
EHR phenotyping offers the ability to rapidly assemble a precisely defined cohort of patients prescreened for eligibility to participate in health-related research. Even so, stakeholders in the process must still contend with the practical and ethical challenges associated with research recruitment. Patient perspectives on these matters are particularly important given that the success of research recruitment depends on patients' willingness to participate.
