Data2Care – Maastricht Medication Datalink

What is the topic of this research project? 

Medication is (one of) the most commonly used intervention(s) in healthcare. Currently, medication that is prescribed electronically at the Maastricht UMC+ is not systematically recorded for use in research. As the use of medication and co-medication is of huge interest in a large variety of clinical studies across several medical specialities, access to medication data has a hospital wide relevance. The Maastricht Medication Datalink aims to create a dataset that includes validated, coded, and FAIR medication data from the current electronic prescribing system.
