  1. Resource Description
    "OptumInsight is clinically rich US health care claims database used to conduct research studies. OptumInsight accesses a comprehensive, large and robust proprietary healthcare database which has been capturing detailed healthcare data since 1993. The Optum’s database licensed by Penn, sourced by its parent company’s commercial ‘administrative services only’ and ‘fully insured’ populations, includes enrollment information from 1993 to 2012 on more than 90 million lives at any point and more than 13 million current lives, including clinical laboratory results to pharmacy and medical claims history. The completeness of this data allows the investigation of any number of patient, physician, treatment, and clinical attributes. Geographic diversity, combined with the longitudinal nature of these data and the ability to see treatments in many settings, affords a unique perspective to the researcher. Subjects can be studied longitudinally, as individuals who disenroll and re-enroll can be identified. This is considered to be a significant advantage of Optum data over most commercially-available databases that erroneously count multiple enrollments as distinct members."
