Pain research using Veterans Health Administration electronic and administrative data sources

Erica A. Abel, PhD, et al.

Pain researchers may use electronic health records and other Veterans Health Administration (VHA) data sources to examine the prevalence, treatment, effect, and outcomes of pain and pain management in Veterans. This article presents the results of a survey of pain researchers. We asked about their experiences with, opinions about, confidence in, and perceived barriers to using VHA data sources. Most of those surveyed reported using VHA data sources. Less than half thought the sources were adequate for pain research. Despite some challenges, pain researchers are using VHA data sources to improve healthcare services for Veterans with pain.
