How can I obtain a table containing the 30 Elixhauser comorbidities for patients in the MIMIC-III database? Did anybody already run the code in the MIMIC-III forum?

Code for deriving an Elixhauser comorbidity table for the MIMIC-III Critical Care Database has been developed by Alistair Johnson and shared via the MIMIC Code Repository. The repository can be found by following the "Code" link on the front page of the MIMIC website.

  • Important to note that MIMIC does not provide "present on admission" identifiers for these diagnosis codes, which limits the accuracy of the derived Elixhauser score. Apr 6, 2017 at 14:26
