Study Start Date: October 2002
Study Completion Date: September 2007
Detailed Description:

The advanced development of medical technology had led to the accumulation of a large amount of medical data. Unfortunately, these useful and meaningful clinical data were not properly managed or analyzed. Therefore, data mining technology has become an essential instrument for hospital management and medical research. Possible meaningful information can be obtained from the database through data mining. About 2,000 diabetic patients had been enrolled in Diabetes Care Program since Oct 2002 in our hospital. We intend to look for the determining factors that affect the prognosis of diabetes mellitus in our patients group.
