Reporting for public health, quality measurement, and safety will all be completed automatically and electronically.

Researchers will be able to use inclusive, representative datasets to compare the real-world performance of treatments, procedures, devices, and drugs.

Research and testing for new decision support, workflows, and other work processes will be able to be conducted across multiple sites and among different technologies.

Researchers and health professionals will spend little to no time normalizing data for research and quality activities.

Preventable data-related safety events will be reduced to zero.
