Abstract:
Purpose: The purpose of this presentation is to examine the effective use of existing electronically archived data in nursing and health services research (HSR). Two health services research studies, conducted by the presenter, using two types of existing data will be explicated: 1. The Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) data as an example of publicly available electronically archived national survey data. 2. Certified Home Health Agency (CHHA) data, including Medicare Homecare charges, as an example of electronically archived provider claims data. Specific Aims: To familiarize participants with: 1. Various sources of existing data. 2. Effective techniques for data access, downloading, management, and inspection. 3. Secondary data and statistical analysis issues. 4. Understanding limitations of using existing data. 5. Understand a variety of applications of using existing data in nursing and health services research. Framework: HSR quantitative methods. Methods: Using examples from two HSR studies, MEPS and CHHA, this presentation will: 1. Include an overview of the use of existing data in health services research and availability of national and regional training resources. 2. Present techniques for effective data downloading, management, and inspection using examples from MEPS and CHHA studies. 3. Present statistical and secondary data analyses issues related to existing data including data access, collection procedures of original data source, data format and quality, missing values. 4. Present a discussion of the limitations of using existing data in health services research. 5. Discuss a variety of applications of using existing data in nursing and health services research including care pathway development, capitated service delivery management, and outcome analysis. Results and Conclusions: Participants will attain a working knowledge of the issues related to the effective use of existing electronically archived data in nursing and health services research. Implications for Nursing Practice and Knowledge Development in Nursing: There are many applications for effectively using electronically archived data in nursing and HSR. Research using these data is an effective and expeditious method that can enhance the impact of nursing research on answering public policy questions at the local, state and national levels.
