A deeper understanding of the burden of disease and risk-factors for poorly controlled disease, as well as understanding the effectiveness of drugs and patient management strategies in real life can drive better disease management and lead to better patient outcomes.

OPRI conducts observational database research to investigate real world evidence for the comparative effectiveness and safety of different medical interventions for the treatment of disease. OPRI also specialises in conducting pragmatic clinical research in the primary care setting. Working closely with academic, professional and industry partners, OPRI is driving the establishment of clear standards for high quality real life research.

Having developed its expertise in real life research of asthma and COPD, the OPRI’s studies today extend into other disease areas, including dementia, diabetes and allergies.
