Session Five – Making sense of big healthcare data – analysing longevity
Date: 3rd March 2017
Venue: ARTS 2.01, University of East Anglia
Approximately three decades ago the migration from paper to electronic health records began to take place. This gave rise to electronic medical records databases. Due to their enormous size in both the number of patients and amount of information collected, these databases have become increasingly useful and beneficial in research. These databases allow for all sorts of observational epidemiology studies, which are important sources of information next to clinical trials, as they provide inside in what happens in practice and allow to detect differences in prognosis of medical conditions and effectiveness of treatments in clinically-defined subpopulations. In this talk, I will present how to design a cohort study to estimate longevity and longevity improvement based on routine collected primary care data. The case study will focus on survival prospects after heart attack and how survival prospects were changed by recommended treatments.
