The Red Hat Group (RHG) was formed at the COMET VII meeting in Amsterdam in 2018, and comprises several initiatives related to improving choice of outcomes in health research – COMET, OMERACT, CS-COUSIN, GRADE, CMTP, COSMIN, CDISC and SONG.
The initial objective is to work together on a project to share knowledge and understanding of mechanisms to promote uptake of COS in comparative effectiveness research.
