b. Clinical data is often unstructured and documented in different, incompatible formats
c. Clinical data points that are captured clinically and through research are unreliable
d. None of the above

1. 2. How can you compare the “value” of two different clinical data points?

a. By making data points comparable using a common dictionary, including common high-level terms
b. Assessing the frequency of a given clinical concept in the cohort of interest
c. Using the information theory concept of information content
d. All of the above

3. Which statement is true with regards to the comparison of genomic and phenotypic data in neurodevelopmental disorders?

a. Most patients have NDDs due to a few, major genes
b. Genomic data is standardized, phenotypic data is not standardized
c. Electronic medical records require correct documentation of genetic changes for billing purposes
d. Genomic data typically does not require clinical information to make a diagnosis
