Electronic Health Records: Friend, foe or something in-between?

Workshop invitation

Please join us for an exciting session to debate the opportunities and problems with Electronic Health Records for healthcare, research and policy purposes.

Date: 27th September 2012

Time: 13.00-15.45pm

Venue: Sherfield Building, Imperial College London, South Kensington campus

In this interactive workshop we aim to bring people together in exploring open questions around electronic records and databases in the healthcare system. We would like to hear from a range of stakeholders drawing on their real life experiences as patients or carers, healthcare staff, researchers and policy-makers:

  • What challenges have you faced with sharing and restricting access to your own health information or to health information you manage as part of your professional role?
  • What benefits or problems do you think arise from the use of electronic records and databases?
  • Are there any ways that electronic records can make your personal or professional experience with the healthcare system more positive and why are these not realised?

Lunch will be provided before the session and refreshments will follow to allow further opportunities for networking.

This workshop is part of a Wellcome Trust funded research project on patient and public perceptions around Electronic Health Records with the aim to inform thinking and produce policy-relevant findings. The project is led by NIHR CLAHRC for Northwest London and carried out in collaboration with the Department of Primary Care and Public Health at Imperial College London and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
