Webinar Description

Big data can provide population-level indicators for autism research focused on physical health. Claims data are a useful big data tool that emerge from health systems and provide translational research opportunities to improve health outcomes across large groups and communities. Claims data are generated at local, state, and federal levels, and from multiple insurance sources. In this webinar, we will describe existing approaches to the use of claims data for autism research focused on physical health and present and discuss opportunities for future research
