Abstract

The Health Care Financing Administration requires that patients admitted to certified nursing homes be assessed with the Minimum Data Set, a data collection instrument containing more than 300 demographic, diagnostic, clinical, and treatment variables. Long-term care databases potentially may be used to assess the outcomes of specific treatments as well as drug effectiveness. The authors sought to ascertain reliability and validity of diagnostic and drug data in a database obtained by merging the Minimum Data Set with detailed information on drugs consumed by each resident.
