Utrecht Patient Oriented Database

Your partner for combining clinical diagnostics and research


Diagnostic algorithms and clinical research depend on proper identification and characterization of patient populations. The UPOD database is a unique relational database collecting and combining clinical characteristics, medication and laboratory measurements since 2000. It d encompasses data from more than 600,000 individuals and over 121,000,000 laboratory results (including pediatric patients). UPOD is operated by the Central Diagnostic Laboratory of the UMC Utrecht.

These data comprise more than 70 additional parameters not reported in clinical routine and have been shown to provide highly predictive outcome markers in various diseases. Raw hematology analyzer files are also available upon request from  over 2,000,000 measurements for further in-depth analysis.
