Quantify’s Gustaf Ortsäter, Kirk Geale and Alexander Rieem Dun have published an observational cohort study which validates an algorithm using skin-specific diagnoses from secondary care and pharmacy-dispensed prescriptions to identify patients with atopic dermatitis.
The study shows that pediatric patients with atopic dermatitis can be accurately identified by the algorithm, but further adjustments are required to identify adult patients. This work is important for future studies that want to explore the unique possibilities that real-world data offer. Check out the full findings here: https://lnkd.in/gff6RNY7
