Data Trainings

PHS regularly organizes data trainings that will help you get familiar with our datasets.

 

Upcoming data trainings:

  • April 5th, 4PM - 6PM
  • April 19th, 4PM - 6PM

 

The trainings are meant to provide an introduction to the cloud-based cohort cutting tool (Redivis) on the PHS Data Portal. We will use claims data during both sessions, specifically Truven MarketScan, which PHS hosts. While creating a sample project, general background to claims data and Truven will be provided.
