Dissecting Desktop Data: Using Clinical Data for Outcomes Research
Allied Health Sciences
College of Health Professions
Medicine and Health Sciences
This session will provide the tools needed to guide improvements in clinical practice via outcomes research. Through the analysis of routinely collected clinical data, the attendee will be guided through the process of data extraction from electronic medical records, codebook development, database development and management, and statistical analyses. This session will provide examples of how to do a retrospective analysis of outcomes clinical data for specific upper extremity conditions (i.e. Lateral Epicondylitis, de Quervain's tendonitis), although the process learned can be applied to any disorder of the hand. The goal is to use existing data to improve clinical outcomes.
