This algorithm is for community associated MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, read more at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MRSA). Note this algorithm will use lab results and not ICD-9 codes, as ICD-9 codes are not specific enough for this algorithm and/or are not used consistently for this phenotype. Thus, we expect the actual number of cases to be higher than what the eMERGE RC (Record Counter) estimated, and, as we will be studying patients aged 0 to 89, we would like for all sites to participate, please...
