SwissRDL - part of the ISPM Bern - specializes in medical registries and data linkage. Our mission is to successively improve healthcare in a rapidly evolving environment together with our partners.
The quality of healthcare can only be improved through the continuous measurement and analysis of clinical data and patient surveys, and registries provide the ideal basis for this.
The purpose of registries is to track interventions and disease patterns as well as patient outcomes over time. This provides evidence for prevention, identification of effective treatments, and patient safety. A high-quality registry thus provides a unique and valuable source of information for improvements in the health care system. The knowledge gained not only benefits patients, but also their families, healthcare institutions and their staff, health insurers and other social insurers, the medtech industry and health authorities.
Another area of expertise of SwissRDL is data linkage. Using state-of-the-art probabilistic methods, we combine existing data sets to gain additional information and improve the quality of our data for future research.
