Description

The project team, comprised of members from Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute (KPWHRI), Kaiser Permanente Northern California, Division of Research (KPNC), Kaiser Permanente Southern California (KPSC), Henry Ford Health System (HFHS), and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute (HPHC), proposes a comprehensive program of infrastructure development, methods development, and innovative research to generate real-world evidence of suicide and suicidal ideation in the United States.  The goal of this project is to enable a robust future program of research to evaluate the effects of medical products on suicidal ideation and behavior. Specific aims include:

  1. Augmenting data partners’ infrastructure (i.e. Health Care Systems Research Network (HCSRN), Center for Effectiveness and Safety Research (CESR), Mental Health Research Network (MHRN), Sentinel Common Data Model (SCDM)) to support study of severe mental illness, suicidal ideation, and suicidal behavior using patient reported outcome (PRO) data. 
  2. Evaluate and improve generalizability of models predicting suicidal behavior.
