Dr. Richard Platt Dr. Christopher Granger

In this episode of the NIH Collaboratory Grand Rounds podcast, Drs. Richard Platt and Christopher Granger speak with moderator Dr. Adrian Hernandez about the IMPACT-AFib atrial fibrillation trial and the role of the FDA’s Sentinel Inititative.  In this trial, researchers used Sentinel pharmacy data to find eligible patients with at least one oral anticoagulation prescription fill, and the speakers describe how the platform provided them with an efficient and cost-effective way to access the data of over 80,000 potential participants.
