SYNERGY’s Center for Translational Population Research (CTPR) and The Dartmouth Institute (TDI) announce a special seminar highlighting an important research resource, the Atlas Rate Generator, on Friday, July 15th from 3-4pm in WTRB Room 571 E&W.
The Atlas Rate Generator (ARG) allows investigators to obtain cross-sectional rates of Medicare data efficiently, at a low cost, and in a timely manner. ARG “rate runs” are covered under the TDI’s existing CMS data use agreement and are run using sophisticated SAS code macros to efficiently produce cross-sectional overall and regional “Atlas” health services use rates. This makes the ARG an ideal resource for researchers and others needing to validate or pilot research hypotheses or for policymakers and media needing custom rate measurements. The seminar will be conducted by David Goodman, MD, MS, Professor of Pediatrics, of Community & Family Medicine and of The Dartmouth Institute. A co-PI of the Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care, Dr. Goodman leads and mentors a wide range of projects investigating the causes and consequences of variation in health care capacity and utilization.
Presenters: David Goodman, MD, MS
When: July 15, 2016 - 3:00 - 4:00 PM
Location: 571 Williamson Translational Research Building
