Clinical data is a staple resource for most health and medical research. Medical (clinical) data refers to health-related information that is associated with regular patient care or as part of a clinical trial program. The data is either collected during the course of ongoing patient care or as part of a formal clinical trial program. Clinical data generally falls into six major types:
Electronic Health Records
Patient / Disease Registries
Clinical Trials Data
Electronic medical records are generally not available to outside researchers. The data collected includes administrative and demographic information, diagnosis, treatment, prescription drugs, laboratory tests, physiologic monitoring data, hospitalization, patient insurance, etc.
Medical data of this nature is useful in Patient/Disease Registries, which help collect and track clinical information of defined patient populations, and Health Surveys, like those that track national diseases. Ontellus can assist in retrieval of these types of records and the management of the data obtained.
