EFFECTIVENESS RESEARCH WITH LONGITUDINAL DATABASES
Large longitudinal healthcare databases have become important tools for studying the utilization patterns and clinical effectiveness of medical products and interventions in a wide variety of care settings.
This course will introduce students to identify and use longitudinal databases for their own research. Strengths and limitations of large longitudinal healthcare databases that are commonly used for research will be considered.
The course will provide an introduction to analytic principles and their application to database research.
Participants will learn through lectures by experienced faculty and by evaluating published database studies. In computer labs, they will learn to implement a database study comparing two medical products in a large healthcare claims database. The project will be conducted using the Aetion platform with an intuitive user interface that does not require any programming skills.
