Real World Health Care Data Analysis: Causal Methods and Implementation Using SAS®
Real world health care data from observational studies, pragmatic trials, patient registries, and databases is common and growing in use. Real World Health Care Data Analysis: Causal Methods and Implementation in SAS® brings together best practices for causal-based comparative effectiveness analyses based on real world data in a single location. Example SAS code is provided to make the analyses relatively easy and efficient.
The book also presents several emerging topics of interest, including algorithms for personalized medicine, methods that address the complexities of time varying confounding, extensions of propensity scoring to comparisons between more than two interventions, sensitivity analyses for unmeasured confounding, and implementation of model averaging.
