Clinical Reporting Resources
Generally accrued clinical data archived in an electronic health record (EHR) is captured in a highly dynamic environment where the focus is decidedly on the health of the patient. In many cases, individual clinicians or specialty teams may enter data in a way that maximizes the care for the patient, but is not the intended "best use" of the system by the developer, a situation that may result in unintended consequences for secondary use of the data such as for research purposes. Through a collaborative series of dialogues over the entirety of the project, these potential barriers to the appropriate translation of clinical practice to research result can be minimized or removed altogether.

CHOP uses an electronic Honest Broker (eHB) to facilitate secure linking of clinical, biological, research, and operational data across CHOP’s research groups. This additional layer offers researchers flexibility in using data collected from EHRs, registries, repositories, and images while providing protection to the individuals whose data are being used for research. Use of the Honest Broker must be listed on research study protocols. By removing all links to individually identifiable data, the Honest Broker can enable secondary use of the research data without need for IRB protocol.
