abstract

  • This study demonstrated high sensitivity and accuracy of an algorithm to create linkages between a registry and an administrative database using indirect identifiers. The methodology will enable long-term surveillance and outcome assessment of a wide variety of devices and procedures. Variations in the coding of procedures, availability of indirect identifiers, and their quality have limited impact on this algorithm.
