This chapter describes the historical roots of outcomes research and the designs used most often in outcomes research. It introduces measurements of comorbidity and disease severity, general and disease-specific health status, satisfaction with care, and preferences for health states. It discusses statistical issues in outcomes research and the similarities and differences between statistical approaches in epidemiology and outcomes research. The chapter identifies some of the major limitations that arise from the uses of administrative and clinical data routinely collected for outcomes research.
