Today, the health care system accumulates and concentrates colossal material on the information of patients who are at the doctor's office, collected and accumulated from electronic medical records (EMR). The possibilities of EHR are not only enormous in clinical practice, but also have great potential for clinical research.

EHRs are a unique database from which information for large research projects can be obtained using various methods and methods.

One of the major application challenges for collaborative research in expanding the use of EMC are issues of semantic interoperability, privacy, and security.

Currently, consensus and standards of international associations involved in the development of protocols for the use of EHR have been formed, which can provide the semantics of clinical information and semantic compatibility between different systems.

When using EMR in clinical trials, a basic rule should apply. EHR can combine data from clinical trials from different centers according to the study protocol to allow identification of different study methods and different patient populations.

International standards for the interoperability of information structures published in recent years have made it possible to create such management systems that have the ability to record and exchange data between different groups of patients and clinics.

With the help of the created systems, it becomes possible to eliminate complications when using various clinical languages and styles of documentation, as well as unfinished routine records.
