Mythicon Ambulatory Care Centers

The data for the providers and patients in this practice were created by aggregating: problem lists and visit types from de-identified EMR data; payor and demographics from SPARCS; patient-level lab data, measurements (I.e. BP, weight, A1C, household income) from NHANES. Though they were created using real metrics and are authentic, these virtual patients were synthesized from several unrelated data sources and do not represent any actual individual patient or provider.
