abstract

  • Despite substantial variability among different medications, there was very good agreement between EHR-Rx data and PC-Rx data. To maximize the validity of classifying medication exposure with EHR prescribing data, researchers may consider using longer MEPs (eg, 12¬†months) and potentially require multiple EHR-Rxs to classify baseline medication exposure.
