The Discharge Abstract Database (DAD) is one of the key data holdings held by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI). The Institute is a national, not-for-profit organization, which plays a critical role in the development of Canada's health information system. The Discharge Abstract Database contains acute care discharge data from most Canadian hospitals. The data generated are essential for determining, for example, the number and types of procedures, and the length of hospital…

Strategies for Improving the Data Quality in National Hospital Discharge Data System: a Delphi Study
TLDR
The necessary actions for improving the data quality in the national hospital discharge data system of Iran are identified and a model based on the experiences of England, Canada, and New Zealand is presented.
Data Quality in an Information-Rich Environment: Canada as an Example
TLDR
This review evaluates the quality of available administrative data in the Canadian provinces, indicating where record linkage can and cannot substitute for more expensive record re-abstraction, and the research potential of the information-rich environments being created highlights the importance of data quality.
A New Method for Database Data Quality Evaluation at the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI)
TLDR
It is concluded that the new method designed to evaluate the data quality of the numerous CIHI data holdings is a useful tool for data quality improvement, especially in the health care sector where dataquality improvement can result in better health information and, ultimately, better health.
Evaluation of the coverage of linked Canadian Community Health Survey and hospital inpatient records.
TLDR
The coverage of the linkage between data from cycle 1.1 of the Canadian Community Health Survey and inpatient hospital data (Health Person-Oriented Information or HPOI) indicated linkage failure and/or undercoverage.
A descriptive analysis of hospitalization due to acute gastrointestinal illness in Canada, 1995-2004.
TLDR
Gastrointestinal illness is still present in the Canadian population and presents a significant burden to the health care system, and age-standardized rates of hospitalizations for acute GI appear to have declined over the 10-year period.
Identifying Potentially Avoidable Hospital Admissions From Canadian Long-Term Care Facilities
TLDR
Significant variation between LTC facilities and over time in the PAH indicator may identify areas for improvement in preventive services and continuity of care for LTC residents.
Best practice in the management of clinical coding services: Insights from a project in the Republic of Ireland, Part 1
TLDR
A year-long project in the Republic of Ireland to review the quality of the hospital inpatient enquiry data for its use in activity-based funding (ABF) found instances of best practice in the study hospitals but also found several areas needing improvement.
REABSTRACTION STUDY OF DISCHARGES FROM ONTARIO CASE COSTING HOSPITALS ( Practice-Oriented )
TLDR
The study aimed to evaluate the quality of coding of clinical and non-clinical information at these facilities, to assess the impact of any observed coding variation on measures of hospital output and resource utilization, and to discuss the findings related to the inter-rater reliability of the study’s reabstractors.
Optimal strategy to identify incidence of diagnostic of diabetes using administrative data
TLDR
A 5-year diabetes-free observation period was a conservative time to identify incident cases in an administrative database using one ICD-9 code 250 record.
Association of hospital spending intensity with mortality and readmission rates in Ontario hospitals.
TLDR
Among Ontario hospitals, higher spending intensity was associated with lower mortality, readmissions, and cardiac event rates, including major cardiac events for AMI and CHF.
