Dementia in the German Pharmacoepidemiological Research Database
Dementias, including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, and other forms of dementia (oD) rank highest among neurodegenerative diseases in the elderly.

This study investigates the usability of different dementia algorithms for health claims data.
