Emergency Critical Care InPatient.
Entering an ECIP
They are really just a special case of a Critical Care patient whose only Boarding Loc entry is that site's ER. See Change from Service Location to Service, Boarding Loc and Transfer Ready DtTm tmp entry, 2020-10 EMIP changes.
"But I never had an ECIP code"
No one had an ECIP code. This sort of thing was not collected until now, and we used to think it doesn't exist. It exists now. However, since we no longer use special codes for these, no ECIP codes were generated.
- ECIPs under MICU service to Medicine units enter the following for the Medicine profile:
- For Previous Location enter <site> MICU, for GGH enter GH_CC
- For Pre-admit Inpatient Institution enter <site> MICU, for GGH enter GH_CC
- For Previous Service enter critical care
Identifying an ECIP
A critical care / MICU ECIP is a patient who was under the care of one of the Critical Care service(s) in the ER and never made it to the MICU (see EMIP for scenarios). See s_Cognos_Services table in CCMDB.accdb for list.
Such a patient will show up in the Cognos Report Integrator listings just like an EMIP patient.
A critical care surgical / SICU ECIP is a patient who was under the care of one of the Critical Care Surgical Service(s) in the ER and never made it to the SICU. In COGNOS this will appear in the CSS as a critical care Trauma service, or Critical care Plastic surgery service, or Critical care Neurosurgery service etc
A patient who is not under the care of one of the Critical Care services (see s_Cognos_Services table in CCMDB.accdb for list) may show up in the Cognos Report Integrator listings if they were under one of a set of services we identified (see "* Surgery /*" in s_Cognos_Services table in CCMDB.accdb for list). However, we have no way to tell a patient under e.g. a surgery service who then went to a unit (or home) from a patient under such service who should have gone to ICU but didn't get there.
How to identify ECIPs in Cognos EPR Report
As EMIP, but with a Critical Care service.
