Gerald Kominski of UCLA provided the linked hospital discharge record data and Dexter Jung of CMRI supervised the linkage of those data with the Medicare enrollment files. Deborah Rennie of UCSF prepared the analytic files from those linked data. (Preparation and linkage of the discharge abstract and Medicare enrollment data upon which this article is based were performed under contract no. 500-96-P535 titled “Utilization and Quality Control Peer Review Organization for the State of California,” sponsored by the Health Care Financing Administration [HCFA], Department of Health and Human Services [DHHS], a result of the Health Care Quality Improvement Program initiated by HCFA, which has encouraged identification of quality improvement projects derived from analysis of patterns of care, and therefore required no special funding on the part of this contractor [California Medical Review, Inc.].) The content of this paper does not necessarily reflect the views or policies of CMRI or DHHS. The author assumes full responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of the ideas presented. Partial support for this project was provided by the Integrated Healthcare Association.
