By Onchee Yu, Jane Grafton, Victoria L Holt, Britton Trabert, Linda Wehnes, Patricia Yarbro and Delia Scholes


Background/Aims: Research and surveillance work addressing ectopic pregnancy (EP) rely largely on ICD diagnostic codes and CPT procedure codes available from automated data sources. However, cases identified in this way may not be true EP cases, as these codes may also be used to rule out, follow up or note a history of EP. Through the use of additional automated data on treatment, procedures, and other aspects of care, we developed a classification algorithm that could improve the accuracy of EP case identification
