Collecting EHR data from participants requires approval from CareEvolution. Please contact us.
When creating a project, your team has the option to collect electronic health records (EHR) from participants. EHR data collection is only possible from providers who support FHIR connectivity standards.

Enabling EHR Data Collection
To enable EHR data collection for your project:
- Navigate to your Project.
- Select the “Sensor & EHR Data” sidebar tab.
- On the left side panel, click “EHR Data.”
- Check the “EHR data” checkbox.
- Click “Save Sensor & EHR Data Settings.”
Sharing EHR Data from MyDataHelps
When participants enroll into your project that has EHR data collection enabled, they will be prompted to enable sharing of their health records. A participant just needs to click the prompt and follow the on-screen steps to connect their records to MyDataHelps.
If a participant declines to share their health records, it cannot be collected by MyDataHelps. It is not possible to determine whether a participant has declined to share data or if their provider does not support FHIR connectivity standards.
You don’t need to deliver surveys in order to collect EHR data. As long as the participant is enrolled in your project and EHR data collection is enabled, the data is collected passively in the background–even when they are not using the MyDataHelps application.
Viewing and Using EHR Data
EHR data collected for your project is available in your project’s data exports. Refer to the Electronic Health Record (EHR) Export Overview article for details about these files.
EHR export files tend to contain a fair amount of data, typically around 5MB of uncompressed data per participant.
