BACKGROUND Cardiac health services researchers frequently use cohorts derived from administrative hospital discharge abstract data to study the outcomes and treatment of coronary artery disease. However, relatively limited data exist on the accuracy of the coding of cardiac diagnoses in discharge abstract data. The goal of this study was to examine the accuracy of the coding of acute myocardial infarction and other cardiac diagnoses in the Canadian Institute of Health Information hospital… CONTINUE READING
