Parkinson's Disease (PD), Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and Epilepsy are three highly impactful health conditions affecting the nervous system. PD, MS, and epilepsy cases can be identified by means of Healthcare Administrative Databases (HADs) to estimate the occurrence of these diseases, to better monitor the adherence to treatments, and to evaluate patients' outcomes.

Abstract

Parkinson's Disease (PD), Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and Epilepsy are three highly impactful health conditions affecting the nervous system. PD, MS, and epilepsy cases can be identified by means of Healthcare Administrative Databases (HADs) to estimate the occurrence of these diseases, to better monitor the adherence to treatments, and to evaluate patients' outcomes. Nevertheless, the absence of a validated and standardized approach makes it hard to quantify case misclassification.
