50. Hey Data, Are We Related? Relational Databases Part 2

Intended Audience: Newcomers to Pharmacy Informatics

On today’s episode, we go over more detail on relational databases, particularly on how data is stored and what type of data is out there and how it’s expressed in relational databases. Some terms we go over are characters, strings, primary keys, alternate keys, foreign keys, one-to-one, one-to-many, many-to-many, null, indexes, and a lot more.
