|Project Title||Pilot Test of Vital Signs and Laboratory Results Table Descriptive Modules in the Sentinel Distributed Database|
The proposed goal of this project is to pilot, via two use cases, the ability to more routinely and broadly understand how FDA might conduct “on-demand quality assurance” for selected vital signs and laboratory results in a within cohort fashion. The first use case will evaluate a cohort of pediatric patients with hypertension. The second use case will evaluate a cohort of new adult users of SGLT-2 inhibitors.
Vital signs and laboratory measures will be evaluated for each use case. Measures will include blood pressure as well as smoking use/status, height, and weight. Laboratory tests will include Hemoglobin A1c and creatinine.
A final report will be prepared with the results from the two use cases. Additionally, a comparison of the identification using a claims-only phenotype versus a clinical data (e.g., electronic health record based) phenotype will be conducted.
