Bring the patient journey into complete view
Optum offers EHR data and insights across therapeutic areas.
Eligibility proxy reduces missing EHR data
The Optum® EHR database was used to test the effectiveness of implementing an eligibility proxy period among chronic obstructive disease (COPD) patients. The results showed that proxy use can eliminate the detrimental impact of missing EHR data and minimize surveillance bias when performing outcomes research.
Impact of EHR data on clinical trials
Optum turned to its EHR data to help a client determine the effectiveness of its drug therapy on diabetic patients, without conducting a new clinical trial.
Patient treatment options: Comparing outcomes
Optum used claims data to conduct a retrospective study that compared the outcomes of COPD patients receiving differing treatments.
