Improving medical record retrieval for validation studies in Medicare data.
The purpose of the study is to describe medical record retrieval for a study validating claims-based algorithms used to identify seven adverse events of special interest (AESI) in a Medicare population. It concluded that the national medical record validation study of claims-based algorithms produced a modest retrieval rate. The medical record procedures outlined in this paper could have led to the improved retrieval from the researchers’ previous medical record retrieval study.
