Emerging Challenges and Strategies


This workshop will bring together statistical and health researchers to discuss statistical issues arising in the use of administrative databases for health research. The speakers will present challenges arising in practice, share recent progress and recent statistical advances, and suggest relevant strategies. We aim to develop an integrated research program that consolidates existing approaches and introduces new ones, with particular attention to handling the complex structure of administrative data and unearthing causal relationships.
