|Project Title||Chart Validation of Inpatient ICD-9-CM Administrative Diagnosis Codes for Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) Among Intravenous Immune Globulin (IGIV) Users in the Sentinel Distributed Database|
Thursday, February 15, 2018
The Sentinel Distributed Database (SDD) is a large database of patient-level administrative health care records, primarily derived from insurance claims and electronic health records, and is sponsored by the US Food and Drug Administration for medical product safety evaluations. Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is a common study endpoint for drug safety studies that rely on health records from the SDD and other administrative databases. In this chart validation study, the authors report the positive predictive value (PPV) of inpatient International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification AMI administrative diagnosis codes (410.x1 and 410.x0) in the SDD.
