1. What Kind of Information is included in MDV Database?

MDV database contains medical treatment, disease, and partial blood test results information allowing different analyses by pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, academia, research institutions, and health insurance companies.

Despite the fact that MDV Database collects the data from advanced/acute care denominated hospitals, we can clearly observe that the list of most frequently reported diseases also contains chronic conditions seen in outpatient setting.
Users can also access medical treatment and blood test results and by combining those information, they should be able to compile a more comprehensive analysis.
