Presentation: Using De-identified Electronic Medical Record Data to Deliver Insights into Diabetes

Speaker: Neil Corner, Real World Evidence Lead, Canada, IMS Brogan

Abstract: This presentation will provide an example of how a database of over 500,000 de-identified patient records in Canada (IMS Evidence 360) is utilized to describe patients who have diabetes. The data is extracted using state-of-the-art software via a secure link. Privacy is critical to the use of this data. By undertaking sophisticated data processing the risk of re-identifying patients from the data is minimized to a suitable level.

About Neil Corner: He leads innovations at IMS Brogan and leads the delivery of outcomes data from Electronic Medical Records (EMR). His focus is on supporting federal and provisional government, academics, and the pharmaceutical industry in understanding and delivering health outcomes data. He is working on delivering outcomes from mHealth, integrated patient data and more recently using EMR to create interactive electronic patient registries.

Mr. Corner has a total of 27 years pharmaceutical industry experience in the UK, US, EMEA, and Canada. He has papers published in the areas of EMR data validation, real world evidence in the Canadian market, and customer relationship management. Designing and building integrated health data ecosystems to create outcomes in the world of big data is the focus of his research and development within IMS Brogan in Canada.

Mr. Corner joined IMS in 2007 as Operations Director for IMS EMEA, and then as franchise lead for patient data and medical data across 22 countries, leaving to relocate to Montreal in October 2009. Previous to his current position in Canada, he managed specialty offerings and government solutions at both the provincial and federal level.
