The IOM Forum on Neuroscience and Nervous System Disorders hosted a session called "Assessing the Impact of Applications of Digital Health Records on Alzheimer's Disease Research" at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference, that was held on July 20, 2015.  The meeting was in Washington, DC at the Walter E.

The presentations at the workshop examined clinical trial design and digital health record collaborative efforts in Europe, reviewed lessons learned from medical records linkage in the Rochester Epidemiology Project, examined the Medicare claims-based methods for studying digital health records, examined the ethical, societal, and legal considerations for applying digital health records on Alzheimer's disease research, and concluded with a panel on opportunities for Alzheimer's disease research.
