BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE There are limited data from Taiwan about the accuracy of National Health Insurance (NHI) claims data. [] Key Method A stratified, 2-staged, probability proportional to size and equal probability method was used to sample 9000 diabetes patients. The accuracy of the diabetes diagnosis was assessed based on patient responses to questionnaire items.

Is a diabetes pay-for-performance program cost-effective under the National Health Insurance in Taiwan?
TLDR
Under the single-payer NHI system, the use of financial incentives under the DM-P4P program may be an effective means to ensure the quality of follow-up treatment and provides decision makers with valuable information regarding the impact of the P4Pprogram of diabetes care.
The risk of tuberculosis disease among persons with diabetes mellitus: a prospective cohort study.
TLDR
The risk of developing tuberculosis increased among those with increasing diabetes severity, and the association between tuberculosis and both diabetes and diabetes severity was significant.
Risks and causes of hospitalizations among physicians in Taiwan.
TLDR
Physicians in Taiwan are at higher risks of developing specific diseases compared with their allied health colleagues and those working with the health institutions and programs were at elevated risks of hospitalization for all causes as well as for certain specific diseases.
Professional accountability for diabetes care in Taiwan.
Concordance between Patient Self-Reports and Claims Data on Clinical Diagnoses, Medication Use, and Health System Utilization in Taiwan
TLDR
The overall concordance between claims records in the National Health Insurance Research Database and patient self-reports in the Taiwan National Health Interview Survey was moderate for clinical diagnosis and substantial for both medication use and health system utilization.
Association of Hypoglycemia With Incident Chronic Kidney Disease in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes
TLDR
This nationwide, population-based, propensity score (PS)-matched cohort study supported the association of hypoglycemia with CKD development among patients with T2DM, possibly in a dose-dependent relationship.
Continuity of diabetes care is associated with avoidable hospitalizations: evidence from Taiwan's National Health Insurance scheme.
TLDR
Higher continuity of care with usual providers for diabetic care is significantly associated with lower risk of future hospitalization for long-term diabetic complication admissions, and health policy stakeholders are encouraged to improve the continuity of Care through strengthening the provider-patient relationships.
Incidence of idiopathic cardiomyopathy in patients with type 2 diabetes in Taiwan: age, sex, and urbanization status-stratified analysis
TLDR
In Taiwan, diabetes increased the risk of idiopathic cardiomyopathy in both sexes and in all age groups, except in men aged’s aged > 64 years, and younger patients were vulnerable to have higher HRs of cardiopathy.

Diabetes in Ontario: determination of prevalence and incidence using a validated administrative data algorithm.
TLDR
Administrative data can be used to establish population-based incidence and prevalence of diabetes, which is increasing in Ontario and is considerably higher than self-reported rates.
Using Claims Data for Epidemiologic Research: The Concordance of Claims-Based Criteria With the Medical Record and Patient Survey for Identifying a Hypertensive Population
TLDR
Combined evidence from medical service and pharmacy claims yielded a high level of agreement with alternative, more costly sources of data in identifying patients with essential hypertension.
Identifying Persons with Diabetes Using Medicare Claims Data
TLDR
It is found that to construct a method that is adequately sensitive, highly specific, and reliable, researchers must combine information from different types of Medicare claims files, use 2 years of data to identify cases, and require at least 2 diagnoses of diabetes among claims involving ambulatory care.
Agreement between insurance claim and self-reported hospital and emergency room utilization data among persons with diabetes.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest either self-reported or insurance claims data can be used to evaluate the impact of health care interventions on hospital or emergency room utilization.
The accuracy of Medicare's hospital claims data: progress has been made, but problems remain.
TLDR
Although some diagnoses and all major surgical procedures that were examined were accurately coded, the variability in the accuracy of diagnosis coding poses a problem that must be overcome if claims-based research is to achieve its full potential.
Knowledge of Health Care Benefits Among Patients With Depression
TLDR
Men and those with greater wealth were more knowledgeable about their medical benefits and those from a nonminority ethnic group, who were less satisfied, and were less sick had better knowledge about their mental health benefits.
Discordance of Databases Designed for Claims Payment versus Clinical Information Systems: Implications for Outcomes Research
TLDR
This study examined the suitability of billing data compared with clinical data (prospectively collected for cardiology research and patient care) for use in clinical outcomes research and found that billing data is limited by the unstructured way in which they are collected.
The sensitivity of Medicare claims data for case ascertainment of six common cancers.
TLDR
Medicare claims provide reasonably high sensitivity for the detection of cancer in the elderly, especially if inpatient and Part B claims are combined, and the potential costs of including false positive cases need to be assessed.
