Electronic patient records are key for both routine NHS care and as a data collection tool in research studies, including clinical trials, to enable standardised, complete and routine characterisation of:
- traits, intermediate phenotypes and disease status
- environmental risk factor data
- clinical outcomes and quality indicators
- patient reported outcomes
