This virtual workshop will walk through considerations and recommendations to assist researchers in the planning of analytic studies that use HCUP databases and/or research tools. Attendees will learn how to determine which HCUP database best suits their research given their population and healthcare setting of interest.

Additionally, guidance will be offered for decision-making related to specific outcomes of interest such as cost of care and readmissions. For the participants who are not familiar with the HCUP databases and tools, we highly recommend attending the HCUP Fall Webinar Series presentations October 18-October 20, or reviewing the Online HCUP Overview Course and HCUP Software Tools Tutorial prior to attending the workshop.
