We are pleased to announce that Drs. Sean Hennessy and Allison Willis from the University of Pennsylvania will represent the 5th site for the Data Harmonization Working Group.
The objective of this project is to develop and refine methods around creating, operationalizing, and implementing measures relevant to deprescribing studies across 5 institutions with different data systems. This will develop infrastructure for multi-site research, including preparing the study sites for future deprescribing trials, and inform creation of a “user’s guide” for using electronic health data for deprescribing research. The use of diverse sites and the user’s guide will lay a roadmap for other sites to participate in single- and/or multi-site research efforts in deprescribing that use electronic health data.
