• This table contains information about whether a patient meets the algorithm for one of the validated case definitions implemented within the CPCSSN database (hyperlink)
  • It is important to know that some of the algorithms have multiple versions – ie an algorithm that has been adjusted to increase sensitivity, or an algorithm that has been adjusted to increase specificity – this is important to think about as what type of study you are doing may determine the type of algorithm you want to use to classify a patient as having a specific disease
  • Only one version of the case definitions (the agreed upon standard) is provided in this table – this means that there is only one record per patient per disease.
  • If your study requires an alternate version of a case definition, please make this request when submitting your DAR.
