About the Session

It takes more than 17 years and costs approximately $2.5 billion to bring a drug to market. Cerner, in collaboration with Elligo Health Research, is on a mission to help life sciences and all U.S. health systems revolutionize clinical research and trials through a network of de-identified, standardized EHR data and diverse, research-ready health systems. This session will explore how health systems and physicians can leverage this complimentary network of diverse patient populations, data and research resources—with more than 92 million patient records from more than 90 contributing health systems—to activate on the emerging trend of pragmatic, decentralized clinical trials to fuel clinical innovation.

Learning objectives:

  • Discuss typical challenges in leveraging EHR data for research.
  • Describe how the cloud can be used to host research data while protecting human subjects.
  • Assess opportunities for EHR data to support decentralized and pragmatic clinical research.


This session is made possible in part by the support of Cerner, an ACHE Premier Corporate Partner.
