Epidemiology Atlas

Health care planning demands knowledge of the burden of disease within a population. For cost reasons, classical epidemiological studies are not able to be carried out to the required extent. Therefore methods must be developed that enable conclusions to be drawn from routinely collected health data about the epidemiological situation. Owing to the lack of standardised diagnostic coding in the outpatient sector in Austria this can only be achieved by indirect means.

Task 1 - Comparison of methods based upon different databases using the example of diabetes prevalence in Austria 2007

In diesem Task wird die Prävalenz von Diabetes basierend auf 2 unterschiedlichen Datenquellen mittels 3 unterschiedlicher Methoden ermittelt und verglichen.

Nach dem Methodenvergleich sollen nun die Inhalte des Atlas kontinuierlich und in zunehmendem Detaillierungsgrad erweitert werden.
