Adjudication and validation

Over the years, our researchers at Department of Clinical Epidemiology have developed and validated numerous algorithms for routinely collected data in Denmark. Published results of these validations are used to support the interpretation of research findings.

As required in specific studies, we will:

  • Develop adjudication forms and operation manuals for algorithm validation
  • Identify clinical definitions suitable for validation in a given health setting
  • Identify expert physician adjudicators
  • Abstract medical charts
  • Track and record adjudication and validation results in a secure database
  • Analyze results of adjudication and validation
  • Conduct sensitivity/correction analyses based on validated outcomes
