    The Sentinel Operations Center and IBM Watson Health have partnered to make SAS® code available for transforming the IBM® MarketScan® Commercial and Medicare Supplemental Databases into the Sentinel Common Data Model.

    This code is compatible with Sentinel Common Data Model version 8 and includes the addition of laboratory values.

    If your organization currently licenses either of these databases and wishes to leverage the analytic infrastructure developed by Sentinel by transforming these data into the Sentinel Common Data Model, please contact to request access.

    The Sentinel Operations Center will send you a MarketScan License Verification form. Contingent on license validation by IBM Watson Health, Sentinel will share the SAS code and documentation with your organization.

    Disclaimer: Neither IBM Watson Health nor the Sentinel Operations Center is able to provide in-depth technical support for implementation, but we welcome suggestions or feedback at
