International diabetes federation meeting. Washington DC (USA), 1991/06/24.
Conventional epidemiologic data suggest that diabetic patients use more health care resources than nondiabetic patients, yet overall health care use by diabetic individuals has'never been fully quantitated.
We took a new approach to this issue based on the actual economics of the provision of health care to diabetic insured individuals.
The claims records in the Mutual of Omaha Current Trends database, which contains information on more than 400 000 individuals, were surveyed to identify patients with diabetes and create the contrast population of nondiabetic patients by exclusion.
International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification, codes and Physicians' Current Procedural Terminology, Fourth Edition, codes were used to determine all diagnoses recorded and all physician services rendered to the contrast populations.
