Abstract: A Cumulative Illness Rating Scale, designed to meet the need for a brief, comprehensive and reliable instrument for assessing physical impairment, has been developed and tested. The scale format provides for 13 relatively independent areas grouped under body systems. Ratings are made on a 5‐point “degree of severity” scale, ranging from “none” to “extremely severe.” Findings, in terms of reliability and validity, reflect statistical significance at the P < .01 level. As a rapid… Expand
The Rapid Disability Rating Scale—2
TLDR
A revised version of the Rapid Disability Rating Scale (RDRS‐2) is presented, and the new appraisals of reliability, factor structure, and validity are reported, along with the potential uses of the scale. Expand
The electronic Cumulative Illness Rating Scale: a reliable and valid tool to assess multi-morbidity in primary care.
TLDR
Reliable and valid, the eCIRS completed during patient interviews with trained nurses can be used to quantify multi-morbidity in primary care, either for research or clinical use. Expand
A prospective evaluation of the cumulative illness rating scale
TLDR
The Cumulative Illness Rating Scale appears to be a reliable method of summarizing medical information and to have some external validity, but in its present form it does not provide additional prognostic information. Expand
Rating chronic medical illness burden in geropsychiatric practice and research: Application of the Cumulative Illness Rating Scale
TLDR
The current data suggest that the CIRS(G) can be successfully applied in medically and psychiatrically impaired elderly subjects, with good interrater reliability and face validity (credibility). Expand
Ratings of Impairment and Functional Status in Prediction of Mortality
TLDR
The data suggest that combining selected functional status ratings with estimates of impairment led to better classification of clinical condition and predictors of outcome. Expand
Measuring severity of illness: a comparison of interrater reliability among severity methodologies.
TLDR
A comparative evaluation of interrater reliability among four severity measures--APACHE II, MedisGroups, Patient Management Categories (PMCs), and Disease Staging Q-Scale--as well as for the Diagnosis Related Groups (DRG) classification system are presented. Expand
Cumulative Illness Rating Scale was a reliable and valid index in a family practice context.
TLDR
The CIRs appears to be a reliable and valid instrument in a primary care context and trained nurses can score the CIRS from chart review. Expand
Measuring severity of illness: six severity systems and their ability to explain cost variations.
TLDR
Indicators of maximum severity, especially Max CSI, explained greater proportions of cost variation than measures of admission severity and measures based on discharge abstracts, and in most of the analyses, PMCs and Disease Staging yielded somewhat higher R2 values than the measures of admitted severity.

Reliability and Validity Testing of the Quality of Life in Late-Stage Dementia Scale
TLDR
There was a significant relationship between QoL and depressive symptoms, pain, agitation, depression, and function, and item mapping suggested a need for easier items. Expand
Measuring psychological well-being in cognitively impaired persons
An objective measure of psychological well-being (a previously understudied outcome for persons with dementia) was developed and tested as part of a longitudinal study (n= 96 participant pairs; n= 73Expand

TLDR
Evaluation of the effectiveness of the treatment of psychotic patients in 12 Veterans Adminstration neuropsychiatrie hospitals felt the need for techniques which would make it possible to describe the symptoms of patients in some standard form, to describe change quantitatively, and to make possible prognostic groupings of patients on the basis of their symptoms.

STUDIES OF ILLNESS IN THE AGED. THE INDEX OF ADL: A STANDARDIZED MEASURE OF BIOLOGICAL AND PSYCHOSOCIAL FUNCTION.
TLDR
The observation that theOrder of recovery of Index functions in disabled patients is remarkably similar to the order of development of primary functions in children suggests that the Index is based on primary biological and psychosocial function, reflecting the adequacy of organized neurological and locomotor response.

TLDR
This classification interrelates the medical classification, functional capacity, projected goals and therapeutic category with case illustrations to tell us where the patient is now, where he should be in the future, and how to achieve these goals. Expand
