Abstract

This talk will outline a possible role of electronic health records in health economic evaluation. The talk will initially discuss the strengths and limitations of primary care electronic health records and linked data. It will go on to describe several studies in which EHRs have been used to estimate costs of health care utilisation, including case studies in obesity and ageing. The final section of the talk will describe the use of EHRs in economic evaluations using either observational or trial data.
