  1. Use of the international classification of diseases (ICD-9-CM) to identify hospitalizations for mechanical low back problems in administrative databases.

    Article - En anglais

    Large administrative databases are increasingly valuable tools for health care research.

    Although increased access to these databases provides valuable opportunities to study health care utilization, costs and outcomes and valid and comparable results require explicit and consistent analytic methods.
