Description
  • Ensuring harmonization and interoperability of data across multiple settings is a critical feature of the Sentinel System and other data networks. Yet, conventional approaches to data harmonization can be resource intensive and error-prone. A novel code translation algorithm may offer a scalable and automated approach for improving the semantic interoperability and harmonization of electronic health record data. This webinar will introduce this new method and discuss its potential applicability to Sentinel.

Target Audience

  • Medical informaticists, medical product safety and real world evidence researchers and regulators
