Abstract

Objective: This study sets out to examine the association between physician and hospital pulmonary embolism (PE) caseload volume and subsequent patient outcomes using 3-year nationwide population-based data in Taiwan. Method: This study used claims data from the 2002-2004 National Health Insurance Research Database. The sample of 2761 PE inpatients was divided into three physician caseload volume groups,
