Conclusions: Our findings question the validity of using NIS and other administrative databases for health services and outcomes research that rely on certain diagnostic procedures. Unfortunately, the NIS does not provide granular data that can control for differences in diagnostic procedure use, which can lead to surveillance bias. Researchers and policy makers must understand and acknowledge the limitations inherent in these databases, when used for pay-for-performance initiatives and hospital benchmarking.

Health care systems have encountered unprecedented challenges during the coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, such as standardizing care in the absence of high-quality data. As an emblematic example, preliminary data and early anecdotal experience suggested that a major driver of COVID-19 pathophysiology was hypercoagulability, suggesting the need for aggressive anticoagulation. In this article, we describe the rapid guidance process for the development of an anticoagulation protocol for COVID-19. Preliminary evidence was collected from multidisciplinary experts within our institution to inform the first protocol ...

AbstractThe COVID-19 pandemic has called for and generated massive novel government regulations to increase social distancing for the purpose of reducing disease transmission. A number of studies have attempted to guide and measure the effectiveness of these policies, but there has been less focus on the overall efficiency of these policies. Efficient social distancing requires implementing stricter restrictions during periods of high viral prevalence and rationing social contact to disproportionately preserve gatherings that produce a good ratio of benefits to transmission risk. To evaluate whether U.S. social distancing ...
