Change in health status and health care use for women who have and have not had health assessments.


This project has received NHMRC Project Grant funding to evaluate the uptake, outcomes and costs of the 75+ Health Assessment, part of the Enhanced Primary Care Items introduced to Medicare in November 1999. Data collected via ALSWH linked to Medicare data will be used to examine patterns of use of the 75+ health assessment items, outcomes and associated health care use and costs. Advanced statistical techniques such as propensity score methods will be used to assess health outcomes associated with use of the 75+ items to compare women who do and do not have assessments in terms of health related quality of life, admission to residential aged care and mortality
