"Our objective is to create a sustainable, interoperable infrastructure through which healthcare advances clinical research and in turn informs clinical care." -- Frances Schrotter, ANSI senior vice president and COO.
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI), coordinator of the U.S. standards and conformity assessment system, is working to facilitate the use of electronic health information to support global clinical research activities. The Institute seeks the active engagement and financial support of the clinical research community to ensure that divergent and disparate standards do not inhibit the use of electronic health records (EHR) for future research and clinical decision support.
