Scientific Questions Being Studied
Our research is focused on exploring patients with various cardiovascular diseases and analyze how different medications are being used to treat these diseases within the All of Us dataset. This research will also focus on exploring how rural populations are treated in comparison to the urban population to determine any differences in the course of treatment and to determine if a patients treatment in an urban vs rural setting can impact a patients healthcare. We are exploring the hypothesize that while similar medications are being utilized, the limited access to healthcare in a rural setting has an increase in disease progression and the need for additional medications.
- Disease Focused Research (cardiovascular system disease)
For this study, we will utilize algorithms in the All of Us data to determine the various medications being prescribed for different cardiovascular diseases and for individuals in urban vs rural populations. We will determine if the medications being used vary based upon a urban vs rural setting for different cardiovascular diseases and how these medications are being used during disease progression.
We anticipate that with the available data sets from the different sites across the country, that similar medications will be utilized in urban and rural setting; however, with the limited access to healthcare in a rural setting has an increase in disease progression and the need for additional medications to help control a patients disease progression. This research will hopefully highlight the importance continued care to slow or limit disease progression.
