Project Title Validation of Serious Infections among an Immunocompromised Population
Date Posted
Sunday, November 19, 2017
Status
In progress
Description

As part of the Health Outcomes of Interest (HOI) series of projects, this project aims to:

  1. develop and test electronic algorithms for identifying cases of serious infection in the Sentinel Distributed Database using the Cohort Identification and Descriptive Analysis (CIDA) tool
  2. develop a sampling strategy across participating Data Partners to retrieve the full-text medical records for up to 250 likely serious infection cases and to retrieve the corresponding Patient Episode Profiles for the same cases
  3. develop and test an abstraction and adjudication form for serious infections
  4. conduct medical chart abstraction and adjudication for up to 250 electronically-identified serious infection cases both via their medical records and their patient profiles
  5. summarize the validation and adjudication activities and results
  6. develop the structure of a prototype ancillary data table to capture validation metadata
Health Outcome
serious infection
