Agreement and validity of electronic health record prescribing data relative to pharmacy claims data: a validation study from a US electronic health record database.
The researchers conducted a retrospective cohort study among patients with linked claims and EHR data in OptumLabs Data Warehouse. Their aim was to evaluate the validity of classifying medication exposure using EHR prescribing (EHR-Rx) data. They concluded that, despite substantial variability among different medications, there was very good agreement between EHR-Rx data and PC-Rx data.
