Project Scope

The scope of this project is to evaluate and recommend approaches for SEND harmonization to better enable analysis of historical control data. SEND harmonization strategies include creation of new variables, controlled terminology, preferred terms, reference lists and/or analysis strategies (scripts) to enable cross study analysis. Developing a solution framework for variability that includes representation of stakeholders involved in the creation and use of SEND datasets will enable more efficient routine analysis of warehoused SEND data.
