Surveys and Analyses of Primary Data

Prospective collection of data in daily practice.

Surveys and Analyses of Primary Data

In contrast to secondary data analysis, primary data is generated under everyday health service conditions. This allows for exact customization of data collection for the specific study goal.   

Economic parameters are determined by developing resource-use questionnaires. For clinical parameters, validated measurement instruments, as well as specifically developed questionnaires, are used.

With the help of standardized questionnaires for areas like quality of life and patient satisfaction, patient perspectives on healthcare services can be evaluated. The collected data from different areas can be combined or quantitatively analyzed in consecutive evaluations.
