Through our successful and long standing relationship with primary care, OPC now has over 5 million de-identified patients within our database, OPC research database, that is shared to us by our primary care network and is used in ethically approved real life research.
Data collection, audit and research
Our unique model provides tailored feedback to the GP practices based on the collection of clinical data from electronic patient records for ethically approved research purposes.
By collaborating with clinical, academic and industry partners, OPC drives a vision for the inclusion of real-life data into all aspects of medical research while informing the translation of research into clinical practice via new technologies and clinical services.
