Seminar date: 3/15/2022

Description: The Geriatrics & Extended Care Data Analysis Center (GECDAC) has developed a data infrastructure, curating data from many sources and developing value-added data including its Residential History File (RHF), GECDAC Core Files (GCF), JEN Frailty Index (JFI), Predicted Long-Term Institutionalization (PLI), and more. This data is developed and used for partnered evaluation of the Office of Geriatrics & Extended Care with much of it available for sharing with research and operations. In this presentation, we will present these data resources and some of their uses along with information about sharing processes.
