The development and increasing sophistication of electronic medical record (EMR) systems hold the promise of not only improving patient care but also providing unprecedented opportunities for discovery in the fields of basic, translational, and implementation sciences. Clinical pharmacology research in the EMR environment has only recently started to become a reality, with EMRs becoming increasingly populated, methods to mine drug response and other phenotypes becoming more sophisticated, and links being established with DNA repositories.
