|Project Title||SAS Macro Toolkit: Data Subset Creation|
Thursday, March 24, 2016
The Sentinel SAS® toolkit library contains stand-alone programming tools written to standardize routine programming procedures. Each tool is a self-contained SAS macro that executes a very specific task. These tools are used in combination to facilitate development of the Sentinel Modular Programs and other programs designed to run on data that adhere to the Sentinel Common Data Model (SCDM). The Data Subset Creation tool takes a user-specified dataset containing a list of patient identifiers and uses it as a look-up table in order to extract patient-level data from another input dataset to store in an output dataset.
