Legal and Ethical Considerations for the Design and Use of Web Portals for Researchers Clinicians and Patients - Scoping Literature Review


Background - This study aims to identify a novel potential use for web portals in health care and health research - their adoption for the purposes of rapidly sharing health research findings with clinicians, scientists, and patients. In the era of precision medicine and learning health systems, the translation of research findings into targeted therapies depends on the availability of big data and emerging research results. Web portals may work to promote the availability of novel research, working in tandem with traditional scientific publications and conference proceedings.
