Series Overview – Feb. 15, 2011

Data Points Publication Series

This continuing series of reports, published by the DEcIDE (Developing Evidence to Inform Decisions about Effectiveness) Network provides new information and insights into the use of health care services and interventions for the treatment, management, and diagnosis of specific diseases, it also highlights the variations and potential disparities in health care services across patient subpopulations. The reports provide brief descriptive statistics, background information, and analytic tables on a variety of specific, focused topics. Certain reports will present new statistics on topics such as disease incidence, prevalence, and burden of illness and outcomes such as hospital readmission, morbidity, and mortality. The series reports will generally summarize the basic demographic and geographic breakdowns of the data, with additional details provided in statistical tables that can be downloaded from this Web site.

Overall, the report series will assist stakeholders in describing important trends in health care and in identifying research questions for new studies on comparative effectiveness and patient-centered outcomes. Researchers from the DEcIDE Network will initially use existing health care databases, particularly those available from the Federal Medicare program, to produce the reports.
