AbstractThis editorial provides context for a series of published case reports in ACI Open by summarizing activities and outputs of joint electronic health record integration and pharmacogenomics workgroups in the NIH-funded electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) Network. A case report is a useful tool to describe the range of capabilities that an IT infrastructure or a particular technology must support. The activities we describe have informed infrastructure requirements used during
