New Electronic Medical Records Study Results Reported from University of Colorado (Accuracy of Electronic Health Record-Derived Data for the Identification of Incident ADHD)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Mental Health Weekly Digest Current study results on Information Technology - Electronic Medical Records have been published. According to news reporting originating in Aurora, Colorado, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "To assess the accuracy of electronic health record (EHR)-derived diagnoses in identifying children with incident (i.e., newly diagnosed) ADHD. In 10 large health care organizations, electronic diagnoses data were used to identify all potential cases of incident ADHD among 3-through 9-year-old children."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the University of Colorado, "A random sample of records was manually reviewed to determine whether a diagnosis of ADHD was documented in clinician notes. From electronic diagnoses data, a total of 7,362 children with incident ADHD were identified. Upon manual review of 500 records, the diagnosis of incident ADHD was confirmed in clinician notes for 71.5% (95% confidence interval [CI] = [56.5, 86.4]) of records for 3-through 5-year-old children and 73.6% (95% CI = [65.6, 81.6]) of records for 6-through 9-year-old children."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Studies predicated on the identification of incident ADHD cases will need to carefully consider study designs that minimize the likelihood of case misclassification."
