Join us for our podium and workshop presentations:

PODIUM: SUNDAY, 9 SEPTEMBER, 4:15 – 4:30PM
THE PREVALENCE AND BURDEN OF HYPERTENSION AND OBESITY AMONG PATIENTS WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES IN JAPAN

Presenter: Andy Stankus, SVP, Global Commercial & Asia Pacific, Health Outcomes, Forecasting and Epidemiology Kantar Health, New York, USA

Synopsis

This study’s objective was to examine the trended prevalence and incremental burden of hypertension (HTN) and obesity (BMI 25 or greater) among the type 2 diabetes (T2D) population in Japan.

Over the past 7 years, the proportion of T2D patients having associated comorbidities (HTN and / or Obesity) has increased.  Patients with more of these comorbidities had worse outcomes compared with patients with T2D alone. HTN was significantly associated with the health status of T2D patients.

WORKSHOP: MONDAY, 10 SEPTEMBER 2018, 10:30-11:30AM

Synopsis

While patient-level healthcare databases continue to proliferate globally, the challenge to any healthcare researcher is how to find the optimal database to solve the research question at hand.  Electronic Health Records (EHR), disease registries, claims, and patient-reported surveys individually each have their strengths and weaknesses. Thus, the ideal solution is a combination of fields from one or more databases.  The integration of these databases can present significant challenges around sample size, patient privacy, and mixed data types; however, if combined carefully and accurately, can provide huge benefits in understanding more about a disease or patient characteristics. 

This workshop will address methods for integrating databases, with examples of success stories. The session will be valuable to healthcare researchers and biostatisticians working with different RWE databases and are seeking novel approaches to creating a more complete dataset.

We will also be making several poster presentations on key topics. To find out more about our poster presentations, download the schedule below.
