Abstract

Introduction The use of administrative health data for research has prompted questions about its validity for this purpose. Objective/Study design The purpose of this study was to determine the concordance of Pediatric Health Information System (PHIS) perioperative antibiotic charges with the institution's medication administration data for males <10 years old and who underwent outpatient penile/inguinal procedures from July 2013 to March 2015. Results There was 93.9% positive and negative agreement between perioperative antibiotic charges versus administration. The sensitivity and specificity were 96.8% and 87.2%, respectively. The positive and negative predictive values were 94.6% and 92.2%, respectively. Conclusion This study indicated strong agreement between PHIS pharmacy charges and medication administration.
