Concern about the quality, cost, and outcomes of health care has become a driving force in health policy research.
The growing accessibility of large clinical and administrative health care data bases has led to an interest in using such data in health policy research.
Clinical data bases are created by providers of care and contain data about episodes and outcomes of care, usually organized as patient records.
Administrative data bases contain data about indirect care processes such as insurance claims processing, vital event recording, and quality assurance.
Clinical and administrative data bases may contain millions of records, consist of data from multiple sites, and often have missing data issues that must be considered by researchers.
