Partnership to Advance Clinical Electronic Research

The Partnership to Advance Clinical Electronic Research (PACeR), launched by the Hospital Association of New York State, brings together leadership from 20 major New York-based healthcare systems, hospitals, research organizations, and pharmaceutical companies to create and sustain efficient processes to more quickly and easily match patients with clinical trials.

The adoption of electronic medical records by health care providers has resulted in emerging databases of information that will be tremendously valuable to medical research.  PACeR’s ultimate goal is to link these data resources with clinical trials in a manner that greatly improves research and patient outcomes, while ensuring data and privacy protections.
