An individually randomized trial of a patient and provider level educational intervention to increase anticoagulant use among untreated members with atrial fibrillation and increased risk of stroke (i.e. CHA2DS2-VASc score ≥2). This project is a proof of concept effort, the first trial conducted using Sentinel Infrastructure, and will inform future interventional studies that are designed to utilize existing healthcare data as part of their design.
