With the permission of hospitals, stores, commercial, company, Medical Research Data Management (MRDM) this data is now on at the American techgigant. the
MRDM from Deventer, in the Dutch municipality of the province of Overijssel, will receive the treatment information directly from the hospitals kept patient records. Per patient concerned, sometimes five hundred of information: from medication and complications to hospitalisation and surgery. Those billions of data are encrypted, forwarded to 22 rural registratiebanken. As a result, to precisely monitor the setting of a condition the best treats.
