This practice is contributing to the IQVIA Medical Research Extraction Scheme (MRES)
IQVIA has set up a research and patient insights programme called the Medical Research Extraction Scheme (MRES) in partnership with EMIS Health to collect non-identified coded patient data from the GP software system. IQVIA use the non-identified patient data for medical and public health research.
Medical research is essential for improving healthcare and tackling the biggest health problems that we face today. Whether you are healthy or have a medical condition, medical research benefits everyone for example by improving doctors’ and scientists’ understanding of how well different medicines work or for detecting any harmful side effects of a medicine.
Health information recorded on patients when they visit the doctor is an invaluable medical research resource that enables a patient’s journey to be tracked from the initial consultation and any investigation through to diagnosis of a condition and treatment. Chronic conditions, in particular, require a long history of data so that signals can be detected, and early risk prediction tools can be designed. Availability of sufficient data and research can drive health policy changes or adoption of new guidelines for healthcare providers, thus leading to improved outcomes for patients.
IQVIA is a global company serving the combined industries of health information technologies and clinical research worldwide. We specialise in the provision of products and services including medical research and analytical solutions to healthcare and life sciences organisations. In the UK, IQVIA has collected and supported the research use of nonidentified patient data for over 20 years.
