Background:Adjustment for comorbidities is common in performance benchmarking and risk prediction. Despite the exponential upsurge in the number of articles citing or comparing Charlson, Elixhauser, and their variants, no systematic review has been conducted on studies comparing comorbidity measures in use with administrative data. We present a systematic review of these multiple comparison studies and introduce a new meta-analytical approach to identify the best performing comorbidity measures… Expand

Topics from this paper

The ability of comorbidity indices to predict mortality in an orthopedic setting: a systematic review
TLDR
The results of this review indicate that the ECI and CCI can equally be used to adjust for comorbidities when analyzing mortality in an orthopedic setting. Expand
A systematic review identifies valid comorbidity indices derived from administrative health data.
TLDR
A systematic review of studies reporting on the development or validation of comorbidity indices using administrative health data and compare their ability to predict outcomes related to comor bidity (ie, construct validity) found a number of valid comorbridity indices derived from administrative data are available. Expand
Which risk-adjustment index performs better in predicting 30-day mortality? A systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Although all the selected risk-adjustment indices perform equally well, SAPS seems better than other indices for short-term mortality based on scaled ranking score. Expand
Optimizing the measurement of comorbidity for a South Australian colorectal cancer population using administrative data.
TLDR
The existing indices are still valid for adjusting for comorbidity and accurately predicting mortality in an SA CRC population and should be considered when assessing CRC survival. Expand
Effect of comorbidity on injury outcomes: a review of existing indices.
TLDR
The ECM was found to outperform theCCI in terms of predictive ability, although the CCI was more widely used, and development of an injury-specific comorbidity measure will be timely and assist future research in injury epidemiology. Expand
Influence of Using Different Databases and ‘Look Back’ Intervals to Define Comorbidity Profiles for Patients with Newly Diagnosed Hypertension: Implications for Health Services Researchers
TLDR
The comorbidities prevalence is greatly impacted by the data source and duration of retrospective observation, and a combination of DAD and physicians claims with at least one year observation duration improves predictions for cardiovascular disease and one-year mortality outcome model performance. Expand
Charlson comorbidity index derived from chart review or administrative data: agreement and prediction of mortality in intensive care patients
TLDR
Charlson comorbidity index scores from chart review and administrative data showed good agreement and predicted 30-day and 1-year mortality in ICU patients as well as the physiology-based SAPS II. Expand
Comparing the performance of the Charlson/Deyo and Elixhauser comorbidity measures across five European countries and three conditions.
TLDR
The Elixhauser measure has better overall predictive ability in terms of discrimination and goodness-of-fit than the Charlson/Deyo measure or the age-sex only model. Expand
Charlson Comorbidity Index Based On Hospital Episode Statistics Performs Adequately In Predicting Mortality, But Its Discriminative Ability Diminishes Over Time
TLDR
The hospitalization-based CCI, as well as that based on both databases, predicts relative mortality adequately, but its discriminative ability diminishes over time. Expand
Reliability of comorbidity scores derived from administrative data in the tertiary hospital intensive care setting: a cross-sectional study
TLDR
While cardiorespiratory and oncological comorbidities were reliably coded in administrative data, most other comor bidities were under-reported and an unreliable source for estimation of CCI or EI in intensive care patients. Expand

Comparison of different comorbidity measures for use with administrative data in predicting short- and long-term mortality
TLDR
This is so far the first study to validate the Elixhauser method and compare it to other methods in the Asia region, and is the first to report its differences in data periods between short- and long-term outcomes. Expand
A systematic review of the Charlson comorbidity index using Canadian administrative databases: a perspective on risk adjustment in critical care research.
TLDR
The Charlson index should be updated for recent changes in the prognosis of comorbid diseases and introduction of International Statistical Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision coding of discharge abstracts. Expand
Evaluation of two competing methods for calculating Charlson's comorbidity index when analyzing short-term mortality using administrative data.
TLDR
The results suggest limited applicability of these approaches when examining short-term mortality, and a slight increase in predictive power was observed when indices were calculated using empirical weights derived from the authors' data. Expand
Evaluation of comorbidity indices for inpatient mortality prediction models.
TLDR
Evaluation of the original Charlson comorbidity index indicates that revision of the clinical conditions studied by Charlson, as well as their weights, increased mortality model predictive capacity, and the increase in predictive capacity was weak. Expand
Searching for an improved clinical comorbidity index for use with ICD-9-CM administrative data.
TLDR
In this population, the ICD-9-CM adaptation used to create the Charlson score mattered little, but using study-specific weights with theCharlson variables substantially improved the power of these data to predict mortality. Expand
Comorbidity measures for use with administrative data.
TLDR
The present method addresses some of the limitations of previous measures and produces an expanded set of comorbidities that easily is applied without further refinement to administrative data for a wide range of diseases. Expand
How to measure comorbidity. a critical review of available methods.
TLDR
The Charlson Index, the CIRS, the ICED and the Kaplan Index are valid and reliable methods to measure comorbidity that can be used in clinical research. Expand
Comparison of the Elixhauser and Charlson/Deyo Methods of Comorbidity Measurement in Administrative Data
TLDR
The Elixhauser comorbidity measurement method performs better than the widely used Charlson/Deyo method in the Canadian acute MI cases studied. Expand
The performance of different lookback periods and sources of information for Charlson comorbidity adjustment in Medicare claims.
TLDR
Improvements in the prediction of mortality are obtained by incorporating alternative sources of data, and the widespread practice of comorbidity adjustment in pre-existing administrative data sources can be improved by taking more complete advantage of existing administrativeData sources. Expand
A Modification of the Elixhauser Comorbidity Measures Into a Point System for Hospital Death Using Administrative Data
TLDR
The Elixhauser comorbidity system can be condensed to a single numeric score that summarizes disease burden and is adequately discriminative for death in hospital when analyzing administrative data. Expand
