I’m interested in using the OHDSI software to answer some comparative effect estimation questions. The main limitation I am running into is that many of the packages and in particular CohortMethod don’t seem to support continuous outcomes (I have a lab result as a primary outcome). For full reference, I’m primarily interested in using propensity matching with a linear regression outcome model.
As far as I can tell, Cohort Method does not support continuous outcomes or linear regression outcome models. I looked at the code a bit and it seems like it should be possible to write a pull request to add that functionality to CohortMethod.
Am I missing some feature of CohortMethod for working with continuous outcomes? Would people be interested in a pull request for adding continuous outcome support? Is there anything I should be a aware of before writing a PR?
