Abstract: Issues in data heterogeneity, usability and availability in the National Patient Centered-Clinical Research Network (PCORnet) can impact efficiency and accuracy of research. The first two studies using PCORnet data, the Obesity Demonstration Projects, identified six recurring data issue themes through meticulous tracking and analysis of study-specific data quality assessments. Examination of these themes, along with proposed remediation techniques, will allow for improved knowledge management and resource allocation in PCORnet studies, thereby improving future study efficiency.
Learning Objective 1: Identify recurring themes in PCORnet data and research issues, as observed by the PCORnet Obesity Demonstration Projects.
Learning Objective 2 (Optional): Recommend remediation techniques to address recurring issues.
