The report identifies the barriers and enablers for medical device registries to effectively access, extract, and aggregate data from existing EHR data sources and load that data into secondary data sources, specifically medical device registries.
Key challenges include
- EHR proprietary platforms that lack interoperability
- A lack of commonly adopted data standards
- Concerns about data security, patient privacy, and human subject protection
The report also identifies innovative practices and key lessons learned that could potentially be disseminated to other registry developers, researchers, and policy makers. In conclusion, the report makes public policy recommendations that may address barriers and encourage innovative practices in the registry space.
