Welcome to our blog. This periodic blog on emerging themes related to the research use of health data invites project colleagues as well as acknowledged experts in their fields to share views on emerging themes in working with observational, or real-world data and evidence generation.

Our field is evolving rapidly with reference to data, methodology, tools and skills, and governance aspects. We therefore hope that our blog will serve as a forum for the project and colleagues to stimulate the wider debate. EHDEN encourages you to participate in this discussion, as collaboration is one of the cornerstones to optimising evidence generation for the 21st century, impacting positively on clinical care and patient outcomes.
