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 items also contains chronic conditions seen in outpatient setting.
Users can also access medical treatment and blood test results and by combining that information, they should be able to compile a more comprehensive analysis.
