Computer Assisted Quality of Life and Symptom Assessment of Complex Patients from April 2011-August 2012: Chicago, Illinois (ICPSR 34543)
Principal Investigator(s): Trick, William, John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County
The purpose of this study was to expand the research capacity for comparative effectiveness evaluations of patients with multiple chronic conditions. Researchers administered a generic Quality of Life (QOL) instrument, physical symptom assessment, patient health questionnaire, and a tobacco screen through audio computer-assisted self-interviews (ACASI) and linked the responses to their electronic medical records (EMR) data. Researchers also calculated two co-morbidity indices (Chronic Disease Score and Charlson Co-morbidity Index).
These data are freely available.

Scope of Study
Subject Terms: chronic illnesses, health, patient care, patients, physical condition, quality of life, symptoms, tobacco use
Geographic Coverage: Chicago, Illinois, United States
Date of Collection:
Unit of Observation: individual
Universe: Outpatient clinic patients with mulitiple chronic conditions.
Data Types: survey data
Mode of Data Collection: audio computer-assisted self interview (ACASI)
Presence of Common Scales: PROMIS-Quality of Life (PROMIS-QOL); Memorial Symptom Assessment Scale (MSAS); Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-2).
Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
- Performed consistency checks.
- Created variable labels and/or value labels.
- Created online analysis version with question text.
- Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
