Hi Jack. There are a number of variations on the Charlson and a lot of different code sources.
SEER publishes a version of the code but it's specific to cancer populations:
There's a Canadian group that has a lot of fantastic resources. I have heard that Canadian dx patterns and codes could differ slightly from code patterns in the US, though, so that's a caveat.
There are also versions specific to Medicare data:
Lastly, if you work for an organization that is part of HCSRN, there are standardized versions of the Charlson and other comorbidity indices available.
Hope this helps!
