Electronic Health Records (EHR) and EHR-based Phenotyping

November 8, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Primary and Secondary care records are increasingly being linked for use in research. These data, however, are collected as part of routine care or for administrative purposes and a significant amount of work is required to build robust and accurate definitions of clinical concepts that can used to identify cases for further study. In this course we present the basic theory behind the extraction of phenotype data from combined electronic health records.

The course covers:

  • Introduction to Electronic Health Records (EHRs)
  • Phenotyping EHRs – Theory
  • Controlled clinical terminologies
  • Research exemplars

By the end of the course participants will:

  • Become familiar with two major primary and secondary care data sources (CPRD and HES)
  • Learn what types of EHR data are collected and the different ways data are recorded
  • Understand how to combine linked EHR data sources to define disease cases

This course is suitable for epidemiologists, medical statisticians and other researchers working with electronic health records data.


The fee per teaching day is:

• £30 per day for UK/EU registered students
• £60 per day for staff at UK/EU academic institutions, UK/EU Research Councils researchers, UK/EU public sector staff and staff at UK/EU registered charity organisations and recognised UK/EU research institutions.
• £220 per day for all other participants
