Jenna Reps (@jreps) and I (@Christophe_Lambert) would like to invite you to participate in an OHDSI network study to validate a predictive model of patients converting from an initial diagnosis of major depressive disorder (MDD) to bipolar disorder (BD).
Patients with BD are often misdiagnosed as having MDD. We have developed a simple score based prediction model that can predict the risk that a patient who is newly diagnosed with MDD will be diagnosed with BD within the next year. We now aim to externally validate this model across the OHDSI network. If this model works then it may help patients with bipolar get diagnosed years earlier.
If you’d like to get involved, please check out the study GitHub link here: https://github.com/ohdsi-studies/BipolarMisclassificationValidation
If you would like to participate, please let us know by March 27. We hope to have all of the data analysis performed by the end of April, and then will submit a manuscript with participants as co-authors.
