This webinar will explore the value and challenges of linking administrative claims data to additional data sources in order to provide a more comprehensive look at the patient journey through a disease state. Data linkage types, techniques and best practices will be discussed.

Supplemental datasets described during the webinar will include:

  • primary data collected from direct-to-patient surveys and medical chart abstraction;
  • National Death Index data;
  • electronic health record data; and
  • clinical prior-authorization data.

The ability of each to add depth to observational study outcomes will be examined through specific examples.

After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the limitations of using only claims data for research and the value of adding the four unique supplementary datasets described;
  • Appreciate the complexity of linking data sources from both technical and compliance perspectives, including requirements to protect patient privacy;
  • Recognize requisite characteristics of a strong matching process; and
  • Discuss or generate ideas for studies conducted with claims-linked data sources.

This webinar is open to all, members and non-members.
