AHRQ’s Effective Health Care Program Data Points Publication Series Available

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality [US]

“The DEcIDE (Developing Evidence to Inform Decisions about Effectiveness) Network announces a new publication series Data Points that will be available on AHRQ’s Effective Health Care Program Web site. This series will offer new information and insights on the use of health care services and interventions for the treatment, management, and diagnosis of diseases, as well as the variations and potential disparities across patient subpopulations.  Reports will provide brief descriptive statistics, background information, and analytic tables on a variety of specific, focused topics related to medical diagnoses, treatments, services, and patient populations.  Specific reports will present new statistics on topics such as disease incidence, prevalence, and burden of illness, as well as outcomes such as readmission, morbidity, and mortality.  The publication series will generally summarize the basic demographic and geographic breakdowns with additional details available in statistical tables that can be downloaded from the Effective Health Care Program Web site.  The first Data Points reports describe the incidence and prevalence of diabetic foot ulcers and some of its major complications in Medicare beneficiaries.  Three reports are now available on the Effective Health Care Program Web site. “
