Description

Mini-Sentinel modular programs (MPs) are SAS programs designed to run against the Mini-Sentinel Common Data Model (MSCDM). They allow rapid implementation of standard queries across the Mini-Sentinel Distributed Database (MSDD). The programs can be customized using various input parameters that define medical product exposures, diagnoses, date ranges, age ranges, and other implementation details. Output contains summary-level counts (e.g., number of members exposed, number of members with a specific diagnosis/condition) stratified by various parameters (e.g., age group, sex, year).

Modular Program #8 characterizes the uptake, use, and persistence of new molecular entities (NMEs). Example: characterize new users of Drug A by age group, sex, and number of months post-approval; examine the distribution of days supplied per dispensing, interval between the first and second dispensing, and the duration of treatment episodes.

Functionality of retired modular programs has been integrated into the routine querying system. Click here for more information.
