        • Patients were included in the heart attack (AMI) cohort if they (1) were admitted to an acute care hospital with a principal discharge diagnosis of AMI following a stay longer than one day between 1/1/2008 and 12/31/2009, (2) were age 65 or older as of the index discharge date, (3) were alive and enrolled in a stand-alone Medicare Part D plan for 12 consecutive months following their index AMI discharge, and (4) had no hospice or managed Medicare plan enrollment in the 12 months following index AMI discharge.

        • All medication use measures were based on Part D event fill records for the time frame specific to each cohort’s observation. The Lexi-Data Basic database (Lexicomp) was used to obtain the drug name, dose, brand or generic status, and active ingredient according to the National Drug Code (NDC).
