Summary Table Queries are very simple queries on counts, prevalence, and incidence of drug products, diagnosis codes, and procedure codes stratified by year, sex, age group, and where appropriate, setting of care.
Sentinel uses PopMedNet, an open-source software application, to enable the operation and governance of the secure Sentinel distributed data network. The PopMedNet software facilitates secure distribution and response of all Sentinel distributed queries, enables monitoring of query activity, and provides a single point of contact for Sentinel Data Partners for all Sentinel querying activity. The Sentinel Distributed Query Tool implementation is compliant with Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) Moderate level as defined by NIST SP 800-53 Revision 4, Recommended Security Controls for Federal Information Systems.
