Researchers from Vanderbilt University have discovered that electrocardiograph data harvested from electronic health records can be efficiently extracted as a rapid and efficient method for the study of cardiac structure and function.

The study, published in the Journal of Clinical Bioinformatics, suggests that EHR-based cohorts have the potential to make major contributions toward the study of epidemiologic and genotype-phenotype associations for cardiac structure and function in diverse populations. Cardiac structure, such as wall thickness and left ventricular dilation, can predict cardiovascular disease events and heart failure.
