Abstract

The National Data Bank for Rheumatic Diseases (NDB) is a research data bank with a broad agenda and approach to important clinical, regulatory, epidemiological, safety, effectiveness, outcome and patient care questions that cannot be answered by conventional data banks. It has systematic, ongoing quality control programs that assure high quality data. NDB-developed programs result in very efficient analytic capabilities and rapid publication.
