    Health Outcome(s)

    In this report, we described cohorts identified by five diagnosis code‐based algorithms designed to detect COVID-19 in the inpatient (IP) setting. We calculated the positive predictive value (PPV) and sensitivity of each algorithm to compare algorithm performance, using diagnostic nucleic acid amplification (NAA) test laboratory result as our reference standard. This report describes Phase Two of a two‐phase project.

    We distributed this request to six Sentinel Data Partners on October 30, 2020. The study period includes data from February 20, 2020 to October 17, 2020.
