Bringing this chat with @anthonysena into Forums:
Is it possible with Atlas Characterization to get per patient statistics? I’m interested in seeing, for instance, index year per patient (rather than aggregated for the cohort). When looking at the results schema’s cc_results table, we only get 1 row per index year and a count of patients, which is fine for cohort level statistics, but doesn’t provide the per patient values.
Ultimately, I’d like to get a bunch of stats per patient, such as risk scores (Charlson, DCSI, CHADS, etc), comorbidities, comedications, or anything else Characterization can do.
It seems like this isn’t currently possible within Atlas (just in FeatureExtraction) so I’m wondering if perhaps this idea has enough utility to be a new option in Atlas Characterization. Certainly, when running through PLE/PLP packages, these covariates are derived by those R packages via FeatureExtraction, but we’re finding we would like to have these per-patient statistics available even before we get to these packages.
