Disease relevance of Social Security


High impact information on Social Security

  • OBJECTIVE: APA evaluated the Social Security Administration's (SSA's) medical standards and guidelines for determining disability due to mental impairment to determine how well the standards and guidelines operationalize the statutory definition of disability in a manner consistent with current psychiatric practice [6].
  • RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Veterans with diabetes were identified using a software program that extracted the social security number (SSN) of patients receiving insulin, sulfonylurea agents, or glucose-monitoring supplies [7].
  • In addition, the 1984 cohort was tracked by social security number for evidence of rehospitalization for either asthma or COPD through 1991 [8].
  • Healthy women (n = 136) were recruited during the first stage of labor in the labor unit of a social security hospital in Guatemala City. Women provided salivary samples for cortisol determinations 3.2 +/- 3.2 h before birth and 1.7 +/- 1.9 h and 17.1 +/- 4.7 h after delivery [9].
  • METHODS: A case-control study was carried out in Iceland among people receiving disability benefits using information available at the State Social Security Institute. There were 344 patients with epilepsy in Iceland 16 to 66 years of age (inclusive) receiving disability benefits in 1995 [10].

Biological context of Social Security

  • Orsola-Malpighi Hospital in Bologna and 35 enrolled in the Professional Nursing School at the Social Security Institute in the Republic of San Marino, who had attended a scientific meeting on ARP in the last year [11].

Associations of Social Security with chemical compounds

  • To evaluate the relative utility of the Social Security Administration and National Death Index as sources of mortality data, the vital status of 12,866 participants in the Multiple Risk Factor Intervention Trial was identified from these sources and compared to the known mortality experience [12].
  • From a social security perspective, levocetirizine treatment yielded an additional cost of 2.78/patient/month, compared to no-treatment [13].
  • PARTICIPANTS: Thirty-seven consecutive patients with recently diagnosed, steroid-naive, mild, or atypical asthma fulfilling the diagnostic criteria of Finnish Social Insurance Institution, and 10 healthy control subjects [14].
  • PARTICIPANTS: Seventeen patients with recently diagnosed, steroid-naive asthma who fulfilled the diagnostic criteria of Finnish Social Insurance Institution and were hyperresponsive to both mannitol and histamine [15].
  • The author traces the source of that message to an organization, Americans for Generational Equity, which is dedicated to restructuring the Social Security system along the lines of a social assistance program: reduced benefits available at later ages only to those who qualify through means tests [16].

Gene context of Social Security

  • A 68-year-old-male who was diagnosed as having rheumatoid arthritis (RA) 7 years previously was admitted the Chiba Social Insurance Hospital due to general fatigue, spiking fever, and appetite loss [17].
  • The disability pensions of the Swedish National Social Insurance Board to persons with epilepsy from January 1, 1971 to December 31, 1985 were studied [18].
  • We used computer matching with the Social Insurance Food Stamp files and with the Aid for Families With Dependent Children files to define poor and nonpoor Kentucky resident families [19].
  • This large data set permits an unusually detailed analysis of factors associated with the 6968 deaths, including 2426 ascribed to CHD, that were detected in the Social Security Administration data set during 6 years of follow-up [20].
  • RESULTS: In the year 2001, there were 177,000 beneficiaries in the public drug plan in Nova Scotia (62% aged > or = 65 years old) and 960,000 concession beneficiaries (pensioners and social security recipients, 61 aged > or = 65 years) in Queensland. These 2 groups were comparable [21].
