Rationale, aims and objectives  Early assessment of health technologies after they are covered by the health system is deemed crucial to promptly identify and analyse unforeseen problems that may arise when these are used in real world settings. This paper aims to describe the various instruments which could be used for collecting information intended for prospective observation of health technologies, so as to choose the specific instrument best suited to each context. Methods  Systematic review of the medical literature aimed at retrieving general reference documents on data collection instruments for post-introduction observation of health technologies. A purpose-designed systematic bibliographic search was elaborated for the main three data collection instruments identified. Results  The three instruments are briefly described along with the main results of the studies retrieved, in terms of the advantages, drawbacks and considerations to be borne in mind when it comes to use these tools in post-introduction observation of new technologies. Conclusions  At present, the most appropriate data collection method for conducting post-introduction observation of new technologies is the use of prospective clinical registries. Electronic clinical records may replace clinical registries in the near future, but currently there are still many doubts as to the quality of the information retrieved.

Researchers claim that data in electronic patient records can be used for a variety of purposes including individual patient care, management, and resource planning for scientific research. Our objective in the project Integrated Primary Care Information (IPCI) was to assess whether the electronic patient records of Dutch general practitioners contain sufficient data to perform studies in the area of postmarketing surveillance studies. We determined the data requirements for postmarketing survei...

Objective: This study examines the influence of the interview method (telephone or face-to-face in households) on the assessment of health behaviors and preventive practices. Material and method: The same questionnaire was completed by two independent samples of the population aged 18-64 years living in the municipality of Madrid. One sample (n = 1,391 subjects) completed the questionnaire by telephone interview and the other (n = 739) by face-to-face interview in households. The results of the ...

The aims of the study were to assess theagreement between data from personal interviews andmedical records on selected medical conditions, toevaluate the validity of each source of information, andto estimate the prevalence of these conditions inpancreatobiliary pathology. Between 1992 and 1995, 602patients with pancreatobiliary diseases were included inthe PANKRAS II Study. Information from interview and medical records was available in 88% ofcases. The agreement between both data sources was p...

Background Postal self-completion questionnaires offer one of the least expensive modes of collecting patient based outcomes in health care research. The purpose of this review is to assess the efficacy of methods of increasing response to postal questionnaires in health care studies on patient populations.

Rurality and rural population issues require special consideration when planning both qualitative and quantitative health research in rural areas. The objective of this article was to explore the issues that require attention when planning the research. This is the first of two articles and focus on issues that require consideration when undertaking rural health research. The diversity of study populations, the feasibility of a research topic, the selection of a research team, and the cultural t...

Questionnaires are often used to collect primaryquantitative data from patients and healthcareprofessionals. The aim is to gather valid, reliable,unbiased and discriminatory data from a represen-tative sample of respondents. However, theinformation yielded is subject to error and biasfrom a range of sources. Close attention to issuesof questionnaire design and survey administrationcan reduce these errors.

Background: Research in quality of life traditionally relies on paper-and-pencil questionnaires. Easy access to the Internet has inspired a number of studies that use the Internet to collect questionnaire data. However, Internet-based data collection may differ from traditional methods with respect to response rate and data quality as well as the validity and reliability of the involved scales. Objective: We used a randomized design to compare a paper-and-pencil questionnaire with an Internet ve...

Abstract Objectives Questionnaires are used to estimate disease burden. Agreement between questionnaire responses and a criterion standard is important for optimal disease prevalence estimates. We measured the agreement between self-reported disease and medical record diagnosis of disease. Study design and setting A total of 2,037 Olmsted County, Minnesota residents ≥45 years of age were randomly selected. Questionnaires asked if subjects had ever had heart failure, diabetes, hypertension, myoca...
