Veritas Data Research: Fact of Death – US Mortality Index for Data Enrichment
The most comprehensive, timely, and reasonably priced mortality resource available
Real-world data (RWD) data sets are often missing one of the most basic pieces of information necessary to truly understand the impact of treatments – did the patient survive or not? Unless a patient expires in the hospital, a mortality event is not recorded in the EHR, insurance claim, or other healthcare transaction data records. With Veritas Data Research’s FACT of DEATH, you can now add critical patient-level mortality information to your analysis.
With frequent updates on reported deaths collected from over 40,000 sources, the Veritas mortality index covers over 90% of deaths in the United States with nearly 90% reported within a month of death. With the comprehensive and timely FACT of DEATH file, organizations are able to consistently leverage mortality as a foundational element on analytics and patient management platforms.
