Description

This report summarizes an assessment of the feasibility of incorporating propensity score (PS) and hd-PS adjustment in the Mini-Sentinel distributed environment. The project included development of a new module that allows users to select a range of PS and hd-PS related parameters and outputs analytic datasets with corresponding tables, figures, and other diagnostic information. The new module is fully compatible with the Mini-Sentinel Common Data Model (MSCDM).
