A Hybrid Approach to Identify Subsequent Breast Cancer Using Pathology and Automated Health Information Data ( file )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Abstract : Purpose: Many cancer registries do not capture recurrence; thus, outcome studies have often relied on time-intensive and costly manual chart reviews. Our goal was to build an effective and efficient method to reduce the numbers of chart reviews when identifying subsequent breast cancer (BC) using pathology and electronic health records. We evaluated our methods in an independent sample. Methods: We developed methods for identifying subsequent BC (recurrence or second primary) using a cohort of 17, 245 women diagnosed with early-stage BC from 2 health plans. We used a combination of information from pathology report reviews and an automated data algorithm to identify subsequent BC (for those lesions without pathologic confirmation). Test characteristics were determined for a developmental (N=175) and test (N=500) set. Results: Sensitivity and specificity of our hybrid approach were robust [96.7% (87.6%–99.4%) and 92.1% (85.1%–96.1%), respectively] in the developmental set. In the test set, the sensitivity, specificity, and negative predictive value were also high [96.9% (88.4%–99.5%), 92.4% (89.4%–94.6%), and 99.5% (98.0%–99.0%), respectively]. The positive predictive value was lower (65.6%, 55.2%–74.8%). Chart review was required for 10.9% of the 17, 245 women; 2946 (17.0%) women developed subsequent BC over a 14-year period. The date of subsequent BC identified by the algorithm was concordant with full chart reviews. Conclusions: We developed an efficient and effective hybrid approach that decreased the number of charts needed to be manually reviewed by approximately 90%, to determine subsequent BC occurrence and disease-free survival time.

Definition of disease and measurement : an audiovisual exercise of blood pressure determination ( visu )
1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
(Producer) This program demonstrates both the technique of blood pressure measurement and the attributes of the resulting readings. After a short discussion on the use of blood pressure measurement as an aid in diagnosis, there is a description of the equipment required, a demonstration of its use, and an explanation of the various components of blood pressure sounds. The program concludes with five practice blood pressure determinations so that viewers can record their own readings. The program is supplied with an answer sheet for the practice blood pressure determinations, as well as graphs showing inter- and intra-observer variations experienced when using the program in the teaching of first year medical students. In clinical medicine, the program can be used to teach students how to take blood pressure measurements. In clinical epidemiology, the program can be used to demonstrate various attributes of measurements, differences between reliability, and validity of measurements, and digit preferences
