Publication Update: PheKB

PheKB is a collaborative environment and knowledgebase where investigators can build and validate electronic algorithms to: 1) identify the characteristics of patients, and 2) discover phenotypes from EMRs.   A recent eMERGE Network publication in JAMIA analyzed both the most frequent components used in algorithms, and the resulting full algorithm’s performance at authoring and secondary implementation sites.  For more information, find the pubmed entry here.
