Epividian, a healthcare analytics and software firm, has been working with yellowDog since the design of their first market report in 2014. The initial report uses data from their OPERA® (Observational Pharmaco-Epidemiology Research & Analysis) database. OPERA® is a healthcare database containing anonymous patient-level data. Physicians and healthcare workers (400+) participating across the U.S. document the care of nearly 77,000 patients who are HIV positive. Epividian’s OPERA® database is refreshed from all of these locations on a daily basis, making the database the largest continually operating cohort of HIV+ patients in the U.S.
Most recently, the epidemiology and clinical advisory board met in Chicago to review goals for the organization and make plans for their work in the coming year. We designed a presentation for the meeting as well as a book for the members to take away that details specific data points and projects. The meeting was a success and there are some wonderful projects in the works that will help caregivers and patients as well.
