Validation of healthcare databases: why to do it and how to do it

Rosso, Aldana LU (2016) In Validation of healthcare databases: why to do it and how to do it
Abstract
Healthcare databases are unique tools in public health research to evaluate the healthcare
performance and treatment compliance. Knowledge about the data quality is required to
enable interpreting the results from statistical analyses. We summarize different sampling
methods suitable for the validation of healthcare databases and discuss their advantages and
disadvantages.
You will learn from the presentation:
 Why it is important to work with validated data
 The basic ideas behind the most frequently used validation designs
 How it is done in practice: examples from the validation of Swedish National
Healthcare Registries
