comorbidity: Computing Comorbidity Scores

Computing comorbidity indices and scores such as the weighted Charlson score (Charlson, 1987 <doi:10.1016/0021-9681(87)90171-8>) and the Elixhauser comorbidity score (Elixhauser, 1998 <doi:10.1097/00005650-199801000-00004>) using ICD-9-CM or ICD-10 codes (Quan, 2005 <doi:10.1097/01.mlr.0000182534.19832.83>). Australian and Swedish modifications of the Charlson Comorbidity Index are available as well (Sundararajan, 2004 <doi:10.1016/j.jclinepi.2004.03.012> and Ludvigsson, 2021 <doi:10.2147/CLEP.S282475>), together with different weighting algorithms for both the Charlson and Elixhauser comorbidity scores.
