Interrupted Time Series design has been proposed as a way to compare treatments which require large-scale implementation and renders randomization infeasible. Each treatment is implemented in blocks of time where all eligible patients are considered to have enrolled in that treatment arm. Comparisons across treatments are carried out as comparisons across these blocks of time with adjustments to time trends and possible autocorrelation of outcomes. We applied this method to a trial evaluating the ability of a care bundle to reduce surgical site infections in patients undergoing colon surgery at MSK.
