The Geriatric & Extended Care Data & Analysis Center (GECDAC) shares some of its value added data with both operational and research colleagues that is based on data it acquires from both VA and non-VA sources. The value added data include cleaned versions of data fields, various constructs and summaries ofthe raw data, and data structured to present the timeline of health services received. GECDAC also shares its experience and resources in data extraction, analytic methods and specific programs.
Data is only shared with GECDAC collaborators. The process of sharing data varies depending on whether collaborators are doing operations or research work.
