Table 3 Pros and Cons of EHR

From: Systems and precision medicine approaches to diabetes heterogeneity: a Big Data perspective

Advantages
 EHR synergies inducing deep phenotyping and marker re-modulation
 Clinical decision support systems (CDSS) providing valuable deliverables
 Network community-driven stratifications as inference drivers
Limitations
 Geo-differentiation creates heterogeneity and needs protocols for effective aggregation of patients’ information
 Records distillation for curating information towards decisions, still facing incompleteness
 Embedding of CDSS for standardization and actionable decision making
