Disease States

Disease State Criteria:  
  • More than 16,000 disease states.
  • More than 60 million patient histories spanning nearly ten years.
  • Patient gender, location, age, health plan, and all providers and facilities.
  • Diagnosis, procedures, outcomes.
  • Providers, practices, facilities, treatment centers.
  • Prescriptions, compounds, Labs
The iTrials Data Universe is not disease-state specific; it's based on all medical data sourced from all of our data providers - more than 200 in all. The data is flat, due to the wide distribution of data providers across the United States.

Enter your search criteria above; separate search terms with a space. The top 100 matching indications will appear here, and you can select each one to find out how many patients in the iTrials Data Universe have that indication in their health history, and how many rendering caregivers are treating it.
Patients: ---
Rendering Providers: ---
Referring Providers: ---
No indication selected. Enter your search criteria above, and then make a selection from the list.

Please be patient - there are more than 500 billion data points to assess during a query.
  • "How many patients does this search cover?" -- This is a representative sampling of the iTrials Data Universe™, with ~36,000,000 patients or so. The main production database has many more.
  • "How long does a search take?" -- Most searches take only a few seconds. The DirectConnect™ platform is indication-agnostic; it doesn't focus on specific illnesses or conditions. All data from all of our network sources (more than 200) is included, so if you search for a very common diagnosis (diabetes, cardiovasculer ailments, etc.), your search may take quite a while to complete!
  • "I thought you would have more/less patients with [x] condition?" -- There can be a lot of reasons why the counts coming back from a search don't match the numbers you're expecting. These include:
    • Multiple ways to encode an indication in a patient history (ICD9, ICD10, various modifiers, references in unstructured data, etc.)
    • Conditions with poor long term prognosis removing patients from the data set.
    • Widely varying published incidence rates.
    • Different naming conventions. For instance, Hunter Disease won't return any records - you'll need to seearch for mucopolysaccharidosis.
  • "How can I get more information on the patient population I found?" -- Under the patient and provider counts, you'll see a Search ID - copy this number, and contact - you'll get a quick reply, and someone can tell you what metrics and analytics are available for your patient population.
  • "What information is available on the patient population I found?" -- Everything. Patient locations, gender information, patient age, complete medical histories over several years including diagnoses, procedures, injections, labs, health plan metrics, out of pocket expenses, adjudications, modifiers, plan changes, provider and practice histories, referral events, and more. This longitudinal data set is what drives the DirectConnect analytics platform, and it can be generating business intelligence for your most challenging projects in a matter of minutes - call now:

Case Studies

Provisio was formed in 2003 in Nashville, Tennessee, to address the continuing problem of finding qualified patients and investigators for clinical trials. Since that time, we've worked with hundreds of clients, each with challenges ranging from finding enough patients to pull a trial out of rescue mode to providing detailed analytics for presentation to the FDA and NIH. Now, with DirectConnect, we bring our industry-leading toolset to your desktop! With a DirectConnect subscription, your team can log into the iTrials Data Universe and directly create pools of eligible patients in real time, and then generate the answers you need to make your study a success!

DirectConnect works in most browsers, as well as most smartphones and tablets. Reports can be scheduled for delivery by email, and additional report delivery options are available, such as PDF and Microsoft Word documents. For enterprise users, DirectConnect can be rebranded with your logo and layout choices, and reseller licensing is available. Subscriptions are configurable, with each subscription including 7 basic reports, and premium reports can be mixed, matched and added at any time. Or, work with Provisio's Professional Services Group, and have business intelligence generated and delivered directly to your team as soon as it's completed (example analysis targeting populations with Crohn's Disease: 3214S32_DD2_Crohns_Blinded.pdf).
