Methods:  Current models of linkage of patient-report and clinical data will be reviewed, including active projects in the states, including Michigan.

Results:  NA

Conclusions:  Trusted health information exchange, as being developed in PCORnet, will provide new research opportunites for the health community, including autism researchers.
