CAMS Research Seminar

Are we healthier? --Chinese Community Stroke Studies and 2015 SPARCS Data

Past stroke studies of the Manhattan Chinese community will be reviewed. Data from the latest 2015 Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System (SPARCS) were extracted in an attempt to examine stroke incidence, and subtypes from CAIPA’s Chinese patient populations in several hospitals.

Hopefully, this exercise will show what health information can be extracted from public records, and how it can be used to benefit our patients. It may give us an insight as to which CAIPA data is useful, what we should focus on, and what can be expected from our own data set. The critical question is how to define health, and whether our community is underserved, or is healthier despite the lack of official attention.
