Health data Expertise and services

The RTC Health Data builds on decades of extraordinary experience with general practitioners (GP)-databases. We provide support in access to primary care data, with all related practical and scientific issues, including data storage and privacy issues. Important topics are the connection of primary care data with other (research or hospital) data, extraction and coding of data, and interpretation of primary care data. We maintain FaMe-net, a high-quality GP-database with morbidity, health care utilization and medication data, available through the Digital Research Environment (DRE). We have experts regarding the various aspects of our theme, including GPs with hands-on knowledge of the use of GP-data.  

Area of expertise

  • Regional Primary Care data collection and analysis
  • Linking transmural care data
  • General Practice data management

Services

The RTC Health Data provides an accessible knowledge and logistical infrastructure that can support innovation and research geared towards bridging the hospital with healthcare outside its walls.
 
The RTC Health Data uses the infrastructure of the Department of Primary and Community Care and other departments with research or innovation experience in transmural projects. We can advise you on how to best set up, prepare and execute your transmural projects.

RTC Health Data A national knowledge center

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. Our Technology Center has the ambition to become a national knowledge center on handling, coding and interpretation of general practice morbidity data. Our rich general practitioners-data, which has been collected over a period of 20 years, as well as our experience in working with and interpreting these data, is available to other Radboudumc Technology Centers and Research Themes.
