HSRProjSet XML Element Descriptions and their Attributes

 HSRProjSet XML Element Descriptions and their Attributes

The elements and attributes described in this document are defined in the HSRProjSet.dtd and are used in the HSRProj XML output files. The HSRProjSet.dtd is available at //www.nlm.nih.gov/databases/dtd/nlmhsrproj_160701.dtd. All files listed are cumulative to the date listed in the download. Updates to this cumulative file will be mounted at least quarterly.  For more information on the download procedures, visit https://www.nlm.nih.gov/nichsr/hsrproj_xml.html.

Structure of the HSRProjSet.dtd:
The HSRProjSet.dtd defines a XML structure for records in the HSRProject collection. At the highest level, the DTD requires a root element named "HSRProjSet". The <HSRProjSet> root element is comprised of one or more instances of the top-level <HSRProj> element, and may optionally contain one instance of the top-level <DeleteCitation> element.

The <DeleteCitation> element is present in the <IndexHSRProjSet> when records have been deleted from HSRProj. The <DeleteCitation> element contains only the unique identifier of each deleted record and is defined more fully at the end of this document.

Structure of the element descriptions in this document:
Following a description of <HSRProj> parent element, this document continues with descriptions of its 20 child elements based on the alphabetical order of the HSRProj XML file. The <HSRProj> child elements are numbered for convenience and readability.

Each of the 20 numbered sections includes the following information, if applicable:

  • Required indicates Yes/No whether or not the element is required to appear within its parent envelope
  • Repeatable indicates Yes/No whether or not the element can be repeated within its parent envelope
  • Attributes are applied to an element to provide additional information about that element
  • Child elements are elements contained within a parent element envelope
  • A brief description of the element and its content
  • Examples -
    • In most cases, multiple examples are given within the Example(s) section. When an example shows multiple occurrences of the same element without intervening blank lines, the intent is to demonstrate that the element repeats within a single parent envelope. Examples with blank lines between multiple occurrences of the same element indicate distinct instances of that element from different parent envelopes.

      <AbstractText Version="1">Background: While the number of women veterans utilizing VA care is rising, many specialized, gender-specific services (e.g. mammography and prenatal care) are not available within the VA. In these instances, federal law enables the VA to pay for veterans' care at outside facilities when the VA does not offer needed care or on an emergency basis when travel to a VA site would not be feasible. Non-VA care can be provided through a number of mechanisms--fee basis, contract care, or university sharing agreements. Despite increasing numbers of women veterans relying on outsourced care for gender-specific services, little is known about the quality of non-VA care, perceptions, and experiences of women veterans who utilize such care, or the experiences of VA providers coordinating care. Objectives: The purpose of our study is to understand providers' and fee basis managers' strategies for provision, coordination, and quality oversight of outsourced care, and to assess perceptions and experiences with non-VA care among women veterans. Follow-up of abnormal mammograms will be used as a case example in aim 3 for evaluating gender-specific non-VA care. Aim #1 is to understand providers' and fee basis managers' strategies for provision, coordination, and quality oversight of non-VA care. Aim #2 is to understand perceptions and experiences with non-VA care among women veterans. Aim #3 is to evaluate the quality of gender-specific services for women veterans using a case example mapped to VHA Handbook priorities (e.g., Do VA facilities utilizing non-VA care for mammography meet key quality standards compared to VA facilities providing in-house mammograms?) Methods: Aims 1 and 2 will use a qualitative approach to examine perceptions and experiences with non-VA care access, provision, and coordination. Specifically, we will use the Women's Health Evaluation Initiative Database (WHEI) to ascertain the top 20 VA sites nationally for non-VA care referrals for women veterans. We will use the WHEI database to identify women veterans from each of those facilities that received non-VA care over the past two fiscal years (FY10-FY12). We will send letters to those women to invite them to participate in the study, and will conduct telephone interviews with a random sample of 6-8 women veterans who are willing to participate from each facility. In addition, we will interview women's health providers and fee basis managers from each of those top 20 facilities to understand their perceptions and experiences with non-VA care. We will transcribe interviews and develop a top-level codebook with both women veterans and VA staff to examine perceptions, experiences, and recommendations for improving non-VA care. Aim 3 is a retrospective electronic medical chart review study. We will use the WHEI to identify women (ages 40-69) at 8 sites with either non-VA or in-house mammograms in FY11. Once we receive this list of patients, we will review the medical records in two phases. We will evaluate whether (1) results of mammograms were appropriately acknowledged in the patient's medical record, and (2) identified abnormal mammograms received appropriate and timely follow-up. Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System Atlas (BIRADS) categories of 0 (indeterminate), 4 (suspicious for cancer), or 5 (highly suspicious for cancer) will be classified as abnormal mammograms requiring follow-up procedures. The BIRADS scoring system is done by radiologists who read the mammograms and is included in all mammography reports. We will use this existing scoring system to categorize mammograms requiring 6-month F/U (BIRADS 3) and inadequate or abnormal mammograms (BIRADS 0, 4, and 5). We expect to identify approximately 7,000 women veterans with mammograms and then conduct in-depth medical record reviews for the estimated 210 patients with abnormal mammograms. The dependent variables are 1) a patient-level dichotomous variable indicating whether or not mammogram results have been appropriately acknowledged in the VA medical record; and 2) a patient-level time-to-event variable representing the number of days after an abnormal mammogram that the patient is appropriately evaluated and has completed necessary follow-up procedures. Findings: This project has no findings to report at this time. Impact: Anticipated: Decisions regarding use of non-VA care (including fee basis and contract care) are made and monitored almost entirely within each VA facility (i.e., virtually no centralized oversight). Little is known about how community providers are selected or the quality of the care they provide. Given that the use of non-VA care is increasing within the VA system, understanding the provision, coordination, and perceived quality of this type of care is of utmost importance as the VA continues to understand how to provide the best comprehensive health care for women veterans.</AbstractText>

Methods: Aims 1 and 2 will use a qualitative approach to examine perceptions and experiences with non-VA care access, provision, and coordination. Specifically, we will use the Women's Health Evaluation Initiative Database (WHEI) to ascertain the top 24 VA sites nationally for non-VA care referrals for women veterans and to identify women veterans from each of those facilities that received non-VA care over the past two fiscal years (FY10-FY12). Veterans will be sent letters to participate and we will conduct telephone interviews with a random sample of 6-8 women veterans from each facility. We will interview women's health providers and fee basis managers from the 24 facilities to understand their perceptions and experiences with non-VA care. We will transcribe interviews and develop a top-level codebook with both women veterans and VA staff to examine perceptions, experiences, and recommendations for improving non-VA care. Aim 3 is a retrospective electronic medical chart review. We will use VINCI to pull administrative data including CDW, DSS, TIU text notes, Vital Status, and CAPRI/VistAWeb access to identify women (ages 40-74) at 8 sites with either non-VA or in-house mammograms in FY12. We will evaluate whether (1) results of mammograms were appropriately acknowledged in the patient's medical record and (2) identified abnormal mammograms received appropriate and timely follow-up. We define abnormal mammogram results, using the existing Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System Atlas (BI-RADS) scoring system, as BI-RADS categories of 0 (indeterminate), 4 (suspicious for cancer), and 5 (highly suspicious for cancer) and we will also examine medical follow-up for BI-RADS 3 (probably benign). Findings: In aim 3, we have identified 7055 completed mammogram requests in FY12. A total of 1377 (19.5%) mammograms were missing BI-RADS scoring from administrative data. We found 783 (11.1%) BI-RADS 0, 21 (0.3%) BI-RADS 4 and 5, and 76 (1.0%) BI-RADS 3 mammograms. Impact: Decisions regarding use of non-VA care (including fee basis and contract care) are made and monitored almost entirely within each VA facility (i.e., virtually no centralized oversight). Given that the use of non-VA care is increasing within the VA system and due to the Choice Act, understanding the provision, coordination, and perceived quality of this type of care is of utmost importance as the VA continues to understand how to provide the best comprehensive health care for women veterans.</AbstractText>

<Abstract><AbstractText Version="1">Background: Stroke and traumatic brain injury (TBI) are leading causes of long-term disability among veterans, resulting in the need for care from informal caregivers. Only one evidence-based intervention, the Telephone Assessment and Skill-Building Kit (TASK I), has been found that comprehensively addresses both caregiver and survivor needs through skill-building strategies, and has demonstrated feasibility and initial efficacy. This program has been recently revised (TASK II), and is currently being tested in a randomized controlled clinical trial of caregivers of civilian stroke patients. This intervention has also been adapted for family caregivers of TBI patients (TASK II-TBI). Objectives: The objectives are to (a) evaluate the efficacy of the revised TASK II in informal caregivers of veterans with stroke and (b) estimate effect sizes for the TASK II intervention for informal caregivers of veterans with TBI. Both TASK II and TASK II-TBI interventions will be compared with an information, support, and referral (ISR) intervention that will serve as an attention control group. Specific aim 1 is to test the short-term and long-term efficacy of the TASK II intervention for improving the primary outcomes of stroke caregivers' depressive symptoms, caregiving-related negative life changes, and unhealthy days. </AbstractText>
  <AbstractText Version="2">Background: Stroke and traumatic brain injury (TBI) are leading causes of long-term disability among veterans and result in the need for care from informal caregivers in the home setting. There are very few evidence-based, easy-to-deliver follow-up programs to train veterans and caregivers across multiple domains post injury. The "Acquiring New Skills While Enhancing Remaining Strengths for Veterans (ANSWERS-VA)" intervention aims to provide the veteran and caregiver dyad with a set of practical skills that each can use in coping with and managing symptoms of a brain injury, applying a strength-based approach. Objectives: The objectives of this study are to conduct a randomized controlled trial (RCT) to evaluate (a) the efficacy of the ANSWERS-VA dyadic intervention with veterans who have sustained a stroke and/or TBI and their informal caregivers and (b) estimate effect sizes for the ANSWERS-VA intervention. The ANSWERS-VA intervention will be compared with an educational intervention that will serve as an attention control group. Specific aim 1 is to tailor the implementation of the ANSWERS-VA intervention to dyads of veterans post stroke and/or TBI and their informal caregivers (n=10) and modify the implementation processes for the RCT. Specific aim 2 is to test the short-term (immediately post-intervention) and long-term, sustained (12 and 24 weeks, and at 1 year) efficacy of the ANSWERS-VA intervention for improving (a) the primary outcomes of the caregivers' quality of life and unhealthy days; and (b) the caregiver mediators of task difficulty, threat appraisal, self-efficacy for caregiving, and optimism. Specific aim 3 is to evaluate program delivery costs for the ANSWERS-VA intervention and the educational attention control procedures, and to assess the cost-effectiveness of the ANSWERS-VA intervention in terms of noncaregiving hours and unhealthy days in caregivers of veterans post stroke and/or TBI. </AbstractText></Abstract>
