EPID Research Oy is a contract research organization specialized in conducting register-based pharmacoepidemiological studies. We utilize data from various nation-wide health registries with patient level information on purchased prescriptions, mortality, cancers and other diseases and hospitalizations.
Registries in Finland and other Nordic countries are within the scope of our services through collaboration. This gives an enormous potential and a cost-efficient approach for evaluating and comparing the effects and costs of various medical treatments on markets.
We provide pharmacoepidemiological research services for pharmaceutical companies, health care organizations and authorities. We study the actual use and effects of drugs in large numbers of people by utilizing population-wide health care registries. Our studies provide information on effectiveness, adverse effects and costs of drug treatment. Our methodology combines clinical, pharmacological, epidemiological and statistical knowledge.
We are a partner centre of the ENCePP scientific network which is coordinated by the European Medicines Agency. We are dedicated to excellence in research by adhering to the ENCePP Guide on Methodological Standards and promoting scientific independence and transparency. We register studies in the ENCePP E-Register of Studies, a publicly accessible resource for the registration of pharmacoepidemiological and pharmacovigilance studies.
