For certain CCI Picklist entries, if a patient changes units on a day and if the procedure continues, there should be two CCI entries, one with a date and one without. Julie noticed a pattern of errors where the entry with a time is made, but the entry without a time is not present. While that could be correct, chart reviews showed that the untimed entry is often just forgotten. So, we decided to put in place a check that will flag records that have a timed CCI entry but no matching un-timed CCI entry for one of the following CCI codes:

This check will be a soft-check since it is possible for these things to be correct.

This check will be done on complete records only because in incomplete records, the collectors may put in inconsistent data as they review.


  • 2023-05-30 - declined the check, it was causing too many false positives (as discussed with Lisa and Julie)
  • 2023-05-04 - implemented
  • 2021-09-01 - requirement identified but there are questions
