Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: This commentary summarizes the methods and topics addressed in the special issue of HSR focused on linkage of United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and non-VA datasets. The issue illustrates that researchers are increasingly linking diverse datasets as a valuable method for obtaining outcomes, treatments, and covariates to evaluate and examine health care delivery that includes non-VA services. The issue serves as a reference to VA and non-VA investigators alike who employ data linkage methods to address high-impact clinical and health policy evaluations that span different care systems and different datasets.
