Since 2010, U.S. healthcare providers have had access to three clinically-based national contraceptive guidelines. Data from the electronic health record (EHR) is a potential resource for measuring whether these clinical guidelines have been implemented into practice, but the strength of EHR data for accurately identifying contraceptive use is unknown. The first part of this seminar are findings from a validation study that compared data on contraceptive use from the electronic health record of a family medicine clinic using two methods — an electronic extraction and a manual chart review and abstraction. The second part of this seminar will present data on long-acting progestin-only methods (such as IUD or implants) prescribed by FM providers among women with CV-related disorders and women without chronic medical conditions.
