What is the IPD?

- 4,500 diseases and procedures
- Updated every 4 weeks
- Every data citation attached to its original source
- Research analyst service attached to every subscription

The IPD is a cost-effective tool that saves researchers valuable time and effort
locating epidemiology-related information, statistics, and sources. The IPD contains
data that will answer many epidemiology-related questions about diseases, general
healthcare, and procedures, all in a searchable online database. Researchers browse
thousands of articles each month looking for data to include in the IPD. From this
large volume of articles, the researchers hand-select epidemiology-related texts,
resulting in an intuitive, specific, customized database. We also browse back issues
for additional articles of interest.

While we work hard to provide a vast resource for some of the more commonly studied
diseases and procedures, we also include diverse data on more obscure conditions,
and make a particular effort to include data that cover specific and harder-to-find
demographic statistics from various regions of the world.

IPD Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Who will find the IPD useful?

A: The IPD will be of particular interest to those involved in market research,
product development, strategic planning, new business development, clinical
research, licensing, stock market analysis, and the medical field in general.

Q: What epidemiology-related topics does the IPD include?

A: The IPD contains data for over 4,000 diseases and procedures including incidence,
prevalence, morbidity, mortality, trends, cost, risk-factors, and disease

Q: What types of questions is the IPD designed to answer?

A: Use the IPD to answer questions such as these:

- "How many patients have gram-negative sepsis versus streptococcal or pneumococcal
- "How many peripheral bypass surgeries were performed during the past five years?"
- "What does a hip replacement cost?"
- "What are the comparisons of breast cancer incidence in Japan, England, Italy, and
- "What are the most common diseases that afflict the elderly?"

Q: Where does the IPD not apply?

A: Disease treatment, drugs in development.

Q: What kind of sources are integrated into the IPD?

A: Our sources include both online and print-based texts, government reports,
medical journals, trade journals, market investment reports, database audits,
industry contacts, medical and scientific associations, and national and
international health care surveys. All data is referenced by source

IPD Features

Global Incidence and Prevalence
Includes summaries of incidence and prevalence data found in medical literature.
Data is fully sourced and is broken down by U.S. and international data, which
includes non-U.S. country-specific data.

Statistical Summaries
The statistical summaries allow researchers the ability to see all prevalence and
incidence data found in the IPD for a particular disease or procedure. In addition,
the summary includes 6-year U.S. trend data for hospital inpatients, hospital
outpatients, physician office visits, and emergency department visits.

Article Reviews
Article reviews provide the most diverse and specific epidemiology-related
information in the IPD. TDR's researchers write the reviews to include important
data from a source (e.g., a journal article) and then consolidate and organize it in
a manner that is easy to browse. Article reviews are fully sourced and emphasize
topics such as incidence, prevalence, disease background, morbidity, mortality,
course of illness, cost, etc. Condensed notes about the study design are also
included to provide vital contextual information.

Suggested Reading
While combing through medical libraries looking for data that is relevant to our
database, our researchers come across many sources that do necessarily fit the scope
of the IPD, but may be of interest to our clients. We make note of these sources and
add them to a suggested reading list, organized by disease or procedure under the
following categories: treatment, cost effectiveness/quality of life, diagnostic,
etiology, histopathology, screening/testing, genetic, and general review.

The remarks section provides researchers important information about a disease or
procedure, including definitions, caveats, historical notes, and other useful facts.

Ranked Items
Ranked lists of the top 300 inpatient diseases, in/outpatient procedures, length of
stay, physician office visits, emergency department visits, and outpatient that
illustrate where patient activity is focused.

Listings of general ICD-9 codes and areas of interest to make finding data for
broader research easier, e.g. cancer, emergency department, general statistics, and

ICD-9 Index
Listing of all ICD-9 codes tracked by Timely Data Resources which includes both
technical and simplified terminology, e.g., "malignant neoplasm of the breast
(breast cancer)."

Census Reports
Worldwide census data for over 40 countries based on total population (broken out by
gender and age).
