    Description

    The objective of this workgroup was to design and implement hybrid empirical/simulated experiments to compare the performance of methods for (1) disease risk score (DRS) development; and (2) incorporating DRSs for multiple outcomes into the analysis to improve inference. The workgroup evaluated different approaches for developing DRSs and used a novel ‘dry run’ analysis approach to compare multiple analytic methods. Understanding the optimal approaches to DRS development and application in the distributed data and multiple outcome setting is critical for moving forward with DRS analyses in Sentinel.
