Large scale healthcare databases are excellent resources for health care professionals and researchers who work in clinical and translational studies and community-based research. Proper utilization of these databases can be a cost effective alternative approach for mining preliminary data, developing research hypothesis, and educating learners. BQHS has analytical expertise in utilizing large healthcare databases in view of promoting health related research. BQHS has developed an infrastructure resource with a catalog of such databases on the BQHS website with the support from RMATRIX-II (MPI: J. Hedges, N. Mokuau, U54MD007584) to encourage biomedical and healthcare researchers in Hawaii.
Our experts look forward to collaborate with you for all your analytical research needs, including project development, data management, statistical analysis, and results dissemination, utilizing these healthcare databases. We provide guidance on data available, their usage, and techniques for handling complex survey weights. If you are interested in conducting a collaborative research using BQHS healthcare databases, please feel free to contact us for more details. The faculty and staff at BQHS are committed to providing high quality statistical support.
