How Do I Build and Analyze Patient Cohorts Using SAS® Health?

On-Demand • Cost: Complimentary

About the webinar

Join this webinar to learn how SAS Health provides an interactive, drag-and-drop interface for querying and building cohorts with temporal relationships – no coding required.

You can easily explore cohort characteristics and the effect of inclusion/exclusion criteria on patient populations to determine study feasibility.

You can also save cohort definitions for reuse, modify them and apply them to other real-world data assets for comparisons across populations, which saves time and resources.

You can validate results and do further analysis using in-memory analysis and visualization in SAS or other technologies (e.g., R, Python and third-party visualization tools).

You will learn how to:

  • Prepare and analyze health data for the purposes of building relevant and repeatable patient cohorts.
  • Use patient cohorts for downstream analyses, including patient safety, clinical trial design, patient outcomes, program evaluation and population health studies.
  • Generate actionable health insights for the purposes of clinical decision support, grant writing or policy development.
  • Bridge the divide between data management and exploration for critical interdisciplinary work in a single platform for analytic interoperability, fostering collaboration within and between organizations.
