Data Analysis

OLG ResearchFlexibility is critical to insightful analysis of data. Our established guidelines for completing data analysis emphasize approaches that identify patterns of responses, data trends or other serial phenomena which are used to generate interpreted findings and recommendations. There is rarely one “answer” that emerges from a series of phenomena, but rather patterns of responses that lend themselves to extracting trends of occurrence or predicted actions. Understanding physician and patient behavior is an interpretive process, requiring patience in rationalizing assent and dissent when developing overall conclusions on how physicians may respond when exposed to different scenarios.
