As a proud new member of the Radboudumc family of technology centers, the RTC Health Data provides an accessible knowledge and logistical infrastructure that supports innovation and research geared towards bridging the hospital with healthcare outside its walls.
RTC-representative Esther Deupmann explains: “More and more (chronically ill) patients are treated close to their homes and not in a hospital (‘extramuralisation’). Therefore, the need for general practice morbidity data and connection of these data with hospital systems further increases - both for daily care as well as research. Via our RTC our rich general practitioners-data, which has been collected over a period of twenty years, as well as our experience in working with and interpreting these data, is available to other Radboudumc Technology Centers and Research Themes.” The new Radboudumc Technology Center Health Data provides support in access to primary care data, with all related practical and scientific issues, including data storage and privacy issues. Using the infrastructure of the Department of Primary and Community Care our RTC Health Data advises you on how to best set up, prepare and execute your transmural projects. Want to know more?
