CANADIAN DISEASE & THERAPEUTIC INDEX (CDTI)

SERVICE OBJECTIVE

The Canadian Disease and Therapeutic Index collects treatment data from a sample of Canadian office-based physicians and identifies usage and treatment patterns by drug and by physician specialty.

DETAILS

  • Data for CDTI are collected from a sample of 652 office-based physicians stratified by geographic region and representing all major specialties.
  • Each quarter, physicians submit a case record book, detailing diagnosis and drug information for all patients (excluding patient identity) seen during a 48-hour reporting period during the quarter. The data are then validated, coded and processed.

APPLICATIONS AND CLIENT VALUE
