The Sentinel Data Quality Review and Characterization Programs are used by the Sentinel Operations Center (SOC) for data quality review and characterization of the Sentinel Distributed Database (SDD). To create the SDD, each Data Partner transformed local source data into the Sentinel Common Data Model (SCDM) format. The SOC created a set of data quality review and characterization programs to ensure that the SDD meets reasonable standards for data transformation consistency and quality and that the SDD data meets expectations needed for a distributed health data network.
The documentation, appendices, and SAS programs associated with version 8.0.0 of the Sentinel Data Quality Review and Characterization Programs can be found externally in Sentinel's Git Repository. The Git Repository serves as Sentinel's version control tracking system for analytic packages and technical documentation.
