Incidence and Prevalence Data

Alternative Titles
IPD
Description

IPD includes summaries of incidence and prevalence data found in medical literature. Data is fully sourced and is broken down by U.S. and international data, which includes non-U.S. country-specific data. Statistical summaries allow researchers to see all prevalence and incidence data found in the IPD for a particular disease or procedure. In addition, the summary includes 6-year U.S. trend data for hospital inpatients and outpatients, physician office visits, and emergency department visits. Fully sourced, article reviews emphasize topics such as incidence, prevalence, disease background, morbidity, mortality, course of illness, cost, and more. Condensed notes about the study design are also included to provide vital contextual information. Ranked lists of the top 300 inpatient diseases, in/outpatient procedures, length of stay, physician office visits and emergency department visits illustrate where patient activity is focused.

EthnoMed

Description

The objective of the website is to make information about culture, language, health, illness and community resources directly accessible to health care providers who see patients from different ethnic groups. EthnoMed was designed to be used in clinics by care providers in the few minutes before seeing a patient in clinic. EthnoMed is intended to be a community voice in the clinic, so user feedback is essential. Information is specific to groups in the Seattle area, but much of the cultural and health information is of interest and applicable in other geographic areas. Each cultural profile includes a description of the group's country of origin, language, interpersonal relations, and health/death issues.
