Research Studies


The usefulness and scalability of SCANNER for comparative effectiveness research (CER) is demonstrated through the following studies:


  • Medication Surveillance CER – to monitor the effectiveness of antiplatelet and anticoagulant medications, and to conduct medication safety surveillance using retrospective data from multiple clinical sites.
  • Medication Therapy Management CER – to compare patients treated with standard of care versus patients whose medications are co-managed by pharmacists and physicians, and to design data retrieval tools with privacy and confidentiality safeguards for clinicians and researchers to assess medication therapy management parameters.
