Contents of L_Dxs table

L_Dxs table is populated with diagnoses from the s_AllDiagnoses table. The diagnoses are structured in a system of main- and sub-diagnoses.

L_DXs contains a field "priority" which is used for determining the Primary Admit Diagnosis.

Due to limitations to our technology at implementation time, we also store the data for Patient Task Tracking among our diagnoses because the data structure was set up to accept them.

To see the most up-to-date data structure of this table, see the master files.
