  1. Access to needed follow-up services : variations among different medicare populations.

    Article - En anglais


    We developed a new approach to measuring access to care that examines posthospitalization follow-up care.

    It reveals differences in receipt of follow-up care among different subsets of the Medicare population.


    Medicare administrative databases from 1986, 1988, and 1990 were used to construct three retrospective cohorts.

    Each cohort consisted of patients from a random 1% sample of Medicare beneficiaries admitted with selected conditions that almost always require timely follow-up care.

    Various « vulnerable populations » within these cohorts were defined on the basis of age, sex, race, and other demographic factors.
