Charlson/Deyo Score

DD_category: 
PUF Data Item Name: 
CDCC_TOTAL
Diagnosis Years Available: 
2003+
length: 
1
Allowable values: 
0 - 2
Description: 
Comorbid conditions as described by Charlson/Deyo (1992) are mapped from as many as ten reported ICD-9-CM secondary diagnosis codes reported for cases diagnosed January 1, 2003 and later. A single summary cumulative value is represented.
Analytic Note: 

Because of the small proportion of cases with a Charlson Comorbidity score exceeding 2, the data have been truncated to 0, 1, 2 (greater than 1).  A score of 0 indicates "no comorbid conditions recorded", or none of the values shown below.  Note that the patient's cancer is not directly reflected in the recorded score.
