Primary Care Clinical Informatics Unit-Research (PCCIU-R)


Description

Scotland's Primary Care Clinical Informatics Unit-Research database includes data from more than 200 participating practices and approximately one million patients. Data are patient anonymous and reflect the computerized clinical record, including appointments, repeat and acute prescribing, call/recall, screening, clinical summaries, and Scottish Programme for Improvement in Clinical Effectiveness in Primary Care (SPICE-PC) data. The PCCIU welcomes funded collaborations to develop research and services projects from this data source.
