Sharing Your Electronic Health Record (EHR)
We will ask for your permission to include your electronic health record (EHR) in the program.
If you agree, researchers will have information about the health care you have received in the past as well as the care you continue to get from your doctor or other health care providers. This will give researchers even more insights to study patterns in the data. This will help them identify why people respond to treatments differently.
We will request your EHR from all of your health care providers.
Your EHR tells about the health problems for which you have received care. It also tells about basic health information. This may come from regular visits, like annual check-ups. The data in your EHR depends on what health care providers you see. For example, if you see a doctor for diabetes, your EHR would have information about your treatment for diabetes.
If you sign the consent and authorization form, the All of Us Research Program will get access to your EHR. We will add your EHR to your All of Us record.
There are dedicated teams that process EHR data for All of Us. If you decide to share your EHR data with All of Us, it will be stored in the secure All of Us database. Approved researchers can then access that data to conduct studies.
