Efficient & Accurate
The IPD research team consists of writers and senior analysts, each with over a decade of experience with identifying and compiling epidemiological data and training in evidence-based medicine. Our analysts appraise the text, tables, figures, and references of hundreds of full-text medical journals, government audits, and other industry sources on an ongoing basis. This full-text appraisal ensures that every source in the IPD is timely and relevant.
After a source has been accepted into production, our analysts write a customized IPD Article Review that includes epidemiological data, methodology details, and other useful content. In addition, top-line IPD Summary reports are compiled from Article Reviews to provide a comprehensive look at selected diseases or procedures in a single report. All data contained in the IPD are fully cited and are linked to the Article Review and from there external links the original full-text document.
Our analysts track and report the epidemiological content for hundreds of medical journals and dozens of government and industry agencies. For a complete list of our resources, see the
