Patient Registry Data for Research: A Basic Practical Guide
Analysis of patient data can be a complicated and challenging process, especially when the data involve many subjects and many variables. A patient registry is a database that organizes collecting the important set of data on a list of identifiable individuals for a specific disease. This type of data usually has tons of data and hundreds of different variables. Thus, the approach to conducting research by using a patient registry database will be more complicated than the other types of dataset. Since the handling of patient registry data is a challenging task, the authors have come out with this book to become a guideline for the statisticians, medical officers and scientists for them to refer as a handbook whenever they need to use patient registry data for their research.
