Chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, ischaemic heart disease or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease affect a large number of the world’s population. Often, the risk to develop a certain chronic condition increases if a patient already suffers from another one. To make health care more effcient, we need to better understand how different diseases condition each other over the life course of patients. Large data sets of electronic medical records promise a powerful new tool which we can use to reach this goal.
