OM1, a leading real-world data, AI, and technology company with a focus on chronic diseases, announced the launch of two new clinical datasets, Chronic Rhinosinusitis (CRS) and Asthma. Both datasets are derived from longitudinal follow-up of patients seen by specialists and focus on patient characteristics, symptoms, treatments, clinical outcomes and healthcare resource utilization. Rapidly growing, the CRS and Asthma datasets each follow approximately 500,000 patients in the U.S.
The research-grade, real-world data available in the OM1 Respiratory & ENT Network is built with an exclusive partnership between OM1 and the American Academy of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery Foundation (AAO-HNSF). With access to thousands of clinicians and more than 25 million patient visits across all 50 states, the data is rich with the most representative network available, including patient reported outcomes, social determinants of health, and patient subtypes and classification data.
Millions of Americans are impacted by respiratory diseases, and the number continues to rise as respiratory illnesses become more common and air quality declines. Taking a deeper look, it’s estimated that 25 million people in the United States are diagnosed with asthma and 5-12% of the global population is affected by CRS. Not only do the numbers continue to rise, it’s common for patients with respiratory diseases to have multiple illnesses. Studies show that up to 67% of people with CRS with nasal polyps, small noncancerous growths that increase the severity of the disease, also have asthma.
"Having access to deep clinical information on clinical presentation, treatments, and outcomes opens a world of incredible opportunity to improve care at both the population and individual patient level,” said Dr. Richard Gliklich, CEO, OM1.
Alongside AAO, OM1 and Dr. Gliklich will be participating and presenting at the AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting and OTO Experience in Nashville, October 1-4.
