“Nullius in verba.”Take no one’s word for it. A cornerstone of science for 350 years.

Except that we often do have to take authors’ words for it. Most methods sections are skeletons of what is actually done - especially in computationally heavy studies.

But what if articles were different? What if an article was instead a “platform” that shared data & code upfront for full transparency & reproducibility?

Today @CircOutcomes publishes a new type of article. Science not on paper. Not on a digital PDF. But on a platform. An "experience" to be directly manipulated.


Science on a platform has several advantages, including better communication of complex ideas, greater transparency & reproducibility. The article is a secondary artifact of the study and not its primary product. See the editorial below...


Many thanks to @byron_jaeger @ramarajus - a special group of authors - for their work in putting this together. And thanks also to the @AHAScience Precision Medicine Platform for hosting data & code.

De jure segregation within US hospitals ended in the 1960s.

But does de facto segregation still exist? And if it does, is it related to outcomes?

Questions posed in a paper led by @dorkstweet with @AkbarWaljee @ekownyankah.

Extensive prior work has shown outcome differences between Black & White patients after surgery due to patient & hospital factors. In this paper, for example, Black patients undergoing CABG were sicker & more often treated at low-volume hospitals.


Our question was subtly different from this earlier work.

We asked: Are Black & White patients WITHIN the same hospital cared for by different teams of providers.

That is: Does "hidden" segregation happen in hospitals?
