Phenotype Definition, Characterisation and Evaluation

In this module you will gain deeper insights into defining phenotypes, characterising and evaluating using OHDSI tools, Cohort Diagnostics, PheValuator, and ATLAS.

In a stepwise approach, you will be guided in how to use the various R tools, how Cohort Diagnostics can support characterising a cohort, evaluating its attributes and potential flaws. Understanding the rationale for utilising phenotype algorithms, as well as being able to evaluate them using the PheValuator tool. Designing cohorts themselves will be conducted in the ATLAS tool, taking you through concept sets, groups, and the ability to create a cohort.

By the end of the module you will have be proficient in creating initial cohorts, and comfortable with critiquing them
