Topics for discussion:

  • Pros and cons of real-world data available in the United States including US national Veterans Affairs (VA) data, Department of Defense (DoD), as well as various commercial data and registry sources.
  • Ways to enhance existing US data capabilities, ie, linkage techniques and creation of additional variables.


Prof. Dr. Onur Baser, Associate Professor at Columbia University and Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Health Economics and Outcomes Research. Dr. Baser’s work in the field of propensity score matching was one of the first applications of econometric techniques in outcomes research to provide guidelines for choosing among different types of matching techniques. He created the ProbChoice™, SIFRA®, CompQual™, NatWeight™, SES Score™, and SAMPSIZE™ algorithms. His co-authored work created a composite score, which is used by the National Institute of Health to profile US hospitals. He adopted a weight mechanism to create national representative datasets using private insurance databases. His ZIP code-linked socioeconomic status variable is frequently used in outcomes research studies and can link any dataset.

Dr. Baser is a frequent speaker at international conferences. In recent years, he has taught short courses at the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) pre-conference regarding “Modeling using Real-world Data” and has been selected as a professor of the distance learning program by the same society. Dr. Baser’s webinars on estimating health care cost models, comparison of propensity score matching techniques, and selection bias issues in outcomes research attract researchers from a wide variety of disciplines and institutions. He also serves as a litigation expert on statistical issues. Dr. Baser has contributed to more than 400 worldwide presentations and publications as well as several book chapters. His book on the estimation of health care costs was published in April 2012. His publication on propensity score matching was selected as one of the Top 10 most-read Value in Health articles, and his co-authored work on quality measurement appeared in JAMA in 2009 and was cited in several radio shows and newspapers.
