  1. Accuracy of hospital discharge abstracts for identifying stroke.

    Article - En anglais

    Background and Purpose Much of the available data on stroke occurrence, service use, and cost of care originated with hospital discharge abstracts.

    This article uses the unique resources of the Rochester Epidemiology Project to estimate the sensitivity and positive predictive value of hospital discharge abstracts for incident stroke.

    Methods The Rochester Stroke Registry was used to identify all confirmed first strokes (hospitalized and nonhospitalized) among Rochester residents for 1970,1980,1984, and 1989 (n=364).

    The sensitivity of discharge abstracts was estimated by following these individuals for 12 months after stroke to determine the proportion assigned a discharge diagnosis of cerebrovascular disease (International Classification of Diseases [ICD] codes 430 through 438.9).
