This is almost about Concept:Chronic Kidney Disease, but because of the ambiguous Kidney, renal failure/insufficiency/uremia, unspecified as acute or chronic the concept can not be used to define this.

change in stage during admission

There was a question whether a pt could have several stages during acquired. This is not the case. AG: While one could have a lower level as a comorbid, and be admitted with what is finally decided to be an advancement of CRF (so that an admit dx is a higher level), in many cases what you'll have is some degree of CRF + an AKI on top of it. It's important to distinguish between these.

CKI as both admit and comorbid

q According to our collection instructions for Admit Diagnosis and Comorbid Diagnosis, and the instructions for these codes (e.g. Chronic kidney disease (chronic renal insufficiency, uremia) Stage 1, GFR GT 90, the diagnoses could be coded as both an Admit Diagnosis and Comorbid Diagnosis. Right now this cross check prevents that.

  • Do we want to be able to code these as both admit and como?
  • Would both need to be the same code?
