Claims Data verses EMR Data
The biomedical sciences industry has relied on clinical trial and claims data for years to drive improvements in heart care. Conventional claims data is based on billing codes utilized by providers for optimal reimbursements. Trial data is often limited in its scope. The true data lies in the clinical data captured in the patients’ electronic medical records. However, the real world data in EMRs has been difficult to access, aggregate, and analyze, especially at a large enough scale to provide statistically significant answers. That is until now.
