  • Description:
    Data are presented on the drugs ordered, prescribed, or administered by office-based physicians to treat patients with principal diagnoses that were among those most commonly rendered during 1980. Diabetes mellitus, hypertension, ischemic heart disease, and certain respiratory conditions are among the 15 illness-related diagnoses selected. Drugs associated with visits for three preventive care health services are also included. For each diagnosis, percents of visits in which one or more drugs were provided, drug mention rates, and drug intensity rates are reported by age, sex, and race of the patient; problem status; and major reason for visit. Drug mentions for each diagnosis are also shown by therapeutic category, physician's entry mode, and generic class.
