BETTER: Bayesian Evaluation of Time-To-Event and Reliability (for vaccine surveillance)
NOTE: All results are preliminary and subject to change
About the BETTER study
The study aims at developing a Bayesian alternative procedure to improve the performance of vaccine safety surveillance. Empirical evaluations based on large-scale observational healthcare databases are conducted to compare the proposed procedure against the state-of-art approach, MaxSPRT, with testing-oriented and estimation-oriented metrics.
These results are being shared as part of OHDSI's open science community efforts.
