What type of information is contained within an EHR?

What file types can I upload to iConquerMS™?

At this time, only PDF and XML documents can be uploaded to the iConquerMS™ portal.

What if my health records are contained in multiple files (i.e., one for lab tests, one for immunizations, one for prescriptions, etc.)? Which records should I provide?

iConquerMS™ welcomes all different types of health records because all this information is potentially valuable to MS research efforts. There is no limit to the number of files you can upload to iConquerMS™.

What if I receive my EHR and it contains mistakes?

We know that EHRs may contain mistakes, but we still welcome your information. If you feel that your EHR is grossly inaccurate, it may be best to not upload it until the mistakes are corrected. To get a corrected EHR, you would need to speak to the healthcare provider who gave you the record; he or she would be best able to fix any mistakes.
