Description

The Mini-Sentinel Distributed Database Year 1 Summary Report presents a high-level summary of the Mini-Sentinel Distributed Database (MSDD) and represents one component of the data quality review and characterization process. The purpose of this report is to provide a summary of descriptive characteristics of the MSDD at a given point in time. To generate the data found in this report, the Mini-Sentinel Operations Center (MSOC) developed and distributed standard programs that Data Partners ran on their local implementation of the Mini-Sentinel Common Data Model (MSCDM). Results from the programs were returned to the MSOC for review, aggregation, and reporting.
