Abstract

With the marked increases in electronic health record (EHR) use for providing clinical care, there have been parallel efforts to leverage EHR data for research. EHR repositories offer the promise of vast amounts of clinical data not easily captured with traditional research methods and facilitate clinical epidemiology and comparative effectiveness research, including analyses to identify patients at higher risk for complications or who are better candidates for treatment. These types of studies have been relatively slow to penetrate the field of infectious diseases, but the need for rapid turnaround during the COVID-19 global pandemic has accelerated the uptake. This review discusses the rationale for her network projects, opportunities and challenges that such networks present, and some prior studies within the field of infectious diseases.
