This project seeks to evaluate if the results of studies of routinely collected health data (e.g. from electronic health records, administrative claims, or patient registries) are adequately reported in scientific journals. This research provides an empirical foundation to inform the RECORD (REporting of studies Conducted using Observational Routinely-collected Data) initiative, which aims to develop a reporting guideline for studies using routinely collected data. Such reporting guidelines should reduce future incomplete or unusable reporting of biomedical research.
