  1. Adapting a clinical comorbidity index for use with ICD-9-CM administrative databases.

    Article - En anglais

    Administrative databases are increasingly used for studying outcomes of medical care.

    Valid inferences from such data require the ability to account for disease severity and comorbid conditions.

    We adapted a clinical comorbidity index, designed for use with medical records, for research relying on International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9-CM) diagnosis and procedure codes.

    The association of this adapted index with health outcomes and resource use was then examined with a sample of Medicare beneficiaries who underwent lumbar spine surgery in 1985 (n=27,111).
