ADL General Collection InformationWhat else in addition to ALERT Scale Calculation uses this?
APACHE Acute Diagnosesneed here some general info what these are, links to wiki articles they are actually related to under old coding scheme, etc. I need help with this because I don't know if any of this is on the wiki, or else what it is about. Ttenbergen 17:20, 2018 February 23 (CST)
APACHE Comorbid DiagnosesDx grouping
  • either need details or need to revise this when we re-group dxs; meeting booked with Julie and Allan 2019-01-20 Ttenbergen 15:42, 2019 January 3 (CST)
APACHE Comorbidities in ICD10 codesDx grouping
  • Need to update from Allan's email 2018-11-26, but he said he would need to review this in light of the changes that had been made to ICD10 and CCI since he and Julie discussed. Ttenbergen 00:36, 2018 November 27 (CST)
  • AaDO2I wonder if "null" is actually intended here, or if it was supposed to be 0. Ttenbergen 14:44, 2017 January 8 (CST)
  • AaDO2 is null if there is no data for FIO2, PaO2 and PaCO2. However, no data was set to zero value instead of null. In addition, AaDO2 and the corresponding score are required only when FIO2 >= 50%, otherwise should be treated as null. (Similarly with PO2 score, it is required when FIO2 < 50% and otherwise should be treated as null. When FIO2 =0, both AaDO2 and its score and PO2 score should be null.) Are we setting null to zero to facilitate the programming calculation? Is it possible to differentiate null from valid zero in both L_LOG and created_variables_CC - will the work be big? In L_LOG, these are the FIO2, CO2, PO2 and SerCO2. 14:49, 2017 March 16 (CDT)

    Angiogram, coronary (diagnostic cardiac catheterization)
  • I recall discussing this in TASK a while ago and I remember that we were talking about now coding both the diagnostic Angiogram, coronary (diagnostic cardiac catheterization) and therapeutic Angioplasty, coronary (with stenting) if both were done. I just want to make sure that we have the correct instructions here. --Jvelasco 12:24, 2019 April 17 (CDT)
  • Antibiotic Resistant Organism
    • Allan has agreed to add a list to the relevant drugs to the difference resistance pages
    • It is awkward to work with/find readily available specific information as to the antibiotics included in the general antibiotic resistant

    articles. Some articles include links to sites that may/may not be that helpful in determination of inclusion antibiotics.

    • Would it be possible to include a listing of common antibiotics in the general antibiotic resistant articles? It would be helpful for collectors to

    have an inclusion list in those articles to use as a quick and easy reference. p:Pam Piche

      • Pam Piche: Question from Allan: I'm not quite sure what you're asking here. Is it which antimicrobials are for which type of bug (bacteria, fungal, etc), or something else?? Please expand on your question.
      • I was thinking along the lines of a listing of inclusion antibiotics such as is available in ICU Pharm flow tab (when hovering over category). I was wondering if such a listing would be helpful in quick determination of inclusion antibiotics?

    BacteremiaThis lists as Apache Neuro and is in APACHE Acute Dxs in ICD10 codes because it is in the following range:

    Nonop - Large categories - Neuro NOS - A17. - A69.22

    Blood Product DataI have made this page to document progress toward this import.
    Boarding LocAny Medicine special cases we can think of?
    How will we phase out Project Borrow arrive and the Off ward field? There will be patients who straddle the boundary. Also, Tina will need to know when the last applicable patients with Project Borrow arrive have been discharged so the entries can be inactivated in tmp.
    Which if any of Project_Borrow_arrive#Data_Integrity_Checks_.28SMW.29 will need to be moved over to this instead?
    Additional entries for additional moves? Tina needs to add the home units for medicine for cases with only partial stay on boarding bed and moves back to home unit.
    • If from home unit, another move to a boarding bed happens, then need to make another borrowed bed location entry and select your hospital's "boarding" entry for medicine or specific location for ICU . --JMojica 10:55, 2019 September 20 (CDT)
    • Will replace Off ward field to provide more meaningful data.
      • When?
    CAM positive (TISS Item)

    CCI Volumes 2019There have been concerns about the volume of work generated by CCI entries. Since we had already reduced certain entries earlier in 2019, the numbers referenced here are only for pts admitted during the third quarter of 2019.
    Can't check ICD10 ARF vs APACHE ARFIt used to be impossible to cross-check between dxs and ARF (APACHE) because of different definitions. With ICD10 now, and new definitions (Template:ICD10 Guideline KDIGO Guidelines for Acute Renal Failure), can we build a cross check that ARF (APACHE) can't be checked if pt has Chronic kidney disease (end-stage renal/kidney disease, ESRD), Stage 5, GFR LT 15? And further, would we be able to require that pt has (which) ARF dx in order to have ARF (APACHE) checked?
    Cardiac/cardiovascular drug NOS, adverse effect
  • Is this the code we use for Amiodarone lung? --LKolesar 14:15, 2019 January 23 (CST)
  • Care levels in the community
    • There usually isn't much info in the charts about the "type" of group home or level of care provided there, so in those cases we have been coding "other - known but not listed". Please clarify --Jvelasco 13:47, 2019 September 4 (CDT)
      • Julie, how do we use this, and how should this be coded in unclear cases? If you are not sure about the answer either, could you bring it to Task?
    Central Line Associated Blood-Stream Infection (CLA-BSI) rate
      • A central lines (CL) is a central venous catheters (CVC) that terminates at or close to the heart or one of the great vessels. Great vessels include the pulmonary artery, superior vena cava, inferior vena cava, brachiocephalic, internal jugular, subclavian, external iliac and the common femoral veins.
        • Could we link to Central Line for details instead so that if we change any they will remain consistent?

    Change Prioritiesis this Check Renal Tasks? If so, there are questions there. Ttenbergen 14:09, 2014 May 14 (CDT)
    Changing D IDs
    • Which program do you do this in? This may actually need to be different instructions for different scenarios.

    • what queries would get you to change a D_ID? We would want to cross-link them so they point to these instructions, and so these instructions can list them as cause.

    • what queries would get you to change a D_ID for medicine? We would want to cross-link them so they point to these instructions, and so these instructions can list them as cause.

    How about L TISS Form table, L TISS Item table and L Labs DSM table? Are there others I am not thinking about ? Ttenbergen 22:20, 2019 February 6 (CST)
    Characteristics Of ICU Patients Who Died Or Were Readmitted Within Seven Days Of Transferhow did we support this publication?
    Charlson Comorbid Score query_dev_CFE
    • the query needs to be cleared out of CFE once we are done. Possibly sooner, I sort of doubt it is used.
    Chart Review ListsThis is linked from the front page and intended to give an idea of how one could use our data. Is there anything on Publications that would be a good example for how our DB was used for this? If not, should we take it out? With nothing here it doesn't look very good coming from front page.
    Chart number
  • EPR sometimes lists something like MRN 123456-1; in that case, do we code the -1, or do we code 1234561, or just 123456?
  • Check CCI CXR vs LOSwould we not use Accept DtTm here? Because we could have CXRs on days before arrival...
    Check CRF vs ARF across multiple encounters
    • Using the ICD10 renal codes, we still need to know when the transition from acute to chronic occurs - so we can decide whether the multiple encounters consistency checking is still relevant. --JMojica 11:51, 2018 November 14 (CST)
      1. is the transition on the next hospital stay? Example in this hospital stay, patient is diagnosed with ARF and stayed continuously in both ICU and ward in same or different hospital. On the next hospital stay, he is now chronic renal patient.
      2. Or the transition is on the next ICU or ward stay? Ex. the first stay is ICU and diagnosed with ARF. then patient was transferred in a ward of same or diff hospital - is he now a chronic renal patient?
      • The data collection instructions are in the related pages, and additional info is in Renal Coding Considerations for ICD10, but they are a beast of a network of concepts. Those might tell you how we currently propose to collect the renal codes, but not necessarily what you or the users of the data would want. Usually these cross checks would be driven by what you need for data requests, so do our proposed instructions line up with how you want to use this? Or is this maybe too case-by-case of a concept to even make a cross check? Ttenbergen 18:59, 2019 January 6 (CST)
    Check ICD10 some cant be primaryComo Admit Acquired Primary Limits - Category:Mechanism would need to be excluded as well, and so would past history, and quickly the list gets so large again that we are back at discussing Controlling Dx Type for ICD10 codes where we should simply include "Primary"-ability.
    • AG OBSERVATION --- we will just take care of this when we take care of Admit/Comorbid/Acquired
    Check Inf Potential Infection must have pathogen or alt combined code_dev_CCMDB
  • Discussed on Agarland 09:56, 2019 August 22 (CDT) - we should implement this. At least for a while. If too much extra work, we can take it out.
  • Check TISS Intubation consistent_Dev_CFE
  • this cross check would not know the difference between (on one day, intubated, extubated, and reintubated) vs (intubated and then extubated); while this hopefully not too common of a thing, would it cause false positives for Pagasa to run after? Ttenbergen 11:33, 2018 October 29 (CDT)
    • yes that is correct because both have a difference of zero. Using the cut off GTE Abs(2) will get true negatives and not false positives. This query considers only the counts and not the dates which will have numerous scenarios and too complicated to define. For those having a difference of -1,0,1 , there are also the possibility for incorrect sequence of dates of intubation or extubation - this is not captured in the query. If you have other suggestions, let us know.--JMojica 12:19, 2018 October 29 (CDT)
      • What I was trying to say is that I am worried this would be a false positive, which will then create work load for Pagasa and/or Collectors to confirm. Do we really want cross checks that bring up potential errors? We have talked about this before, but never really come up with a general answer. Should we take it to task meeting? Ttenbergen 23:45, 2018 October 29 (CDT)
      • Are you saying I should use "difference between A and B can be -2, -1, 0, 1, 2. Other values will be questionable?
        • The basic scenarios are
          • 1. no new insert and no extubation (0-0=0) ,
          • 2. no new insert and then extubated - this assumes currently with tube and then extubated (0-1=-1),
          • 3. insert new tube and no extubation(1-0=1),
          • 4) insert new tube and then extubated (1-1=0). When there are 2 insertions, the valid number of extubations =1,2,3 even if occurring at same or different days as insertion day, the difference will either be -1,0,1. Same holds true with 3 insertions or 4 insertions. there will be definite errors if the difference is >= 2 or <= -2. Having 1 insertion and 3 extubations or 3 insertions and 1 extubation are not possible and are errors.
            • Scenario: Pt arrives intubated. On day 1, they are extubated. On day 2 they are intubated, extubated and then intubated again on the same day, which will look on TISS as one insertion on that day and one removal. If you then had a removal the next day you will have an error because you have a count of 3 extubations with only 1 intubation.
            • yes, this scenario if indeed correct has to be checked with the dates and also not that frequent. I found a case of 3 days extubations and 1 day insertion which is questionable because the 2nd day extubation (4/18/2018) is not the same day as the insertion day (4/16/2018) and the 3rd extubation day is 4/23/2018 - is there a missing insertion before 4/23 or an extra extubation 4/18 or 4/23? Actually, the most common cases are either extubations >= 2 and zero intubations or zero extubation and intubations >= 2 which we assume as missed bubble that is why -2 and 2 are not included in the acceptable values. When I discussed with Trish the scenario you have cited, she said we still need an audit so we are aware and clear about the cases of two insertions done in a day.--JMojica 10:19, 2018 November 21 (CST)
  • I will have to sit down with this and work through it.
    Check VAP acquired only first encounterWe decided that VAP can actually happen in medicine if pt admitted from ICU. How would we deal with that for this check?
    Check organ donors must be dead
    Check pre acute consistentwhat exactly do we want to check for? Please also have a look at the stuff below that doesn't specifically have your name. This requested check ties into a bunch of things and if we want the check we need to be sure that instructions stay consistent and lose ends are tied up.
    There was a previous attempt to address some of this in Care levels in the community; this page and it need to be consistent, and consistently linked from the relevant field definitions. If we can get it short enough we might make a template to apply the instructions to each of the field pages.
    There was talk about comparing Postal Codes to known PCH Postal Codes. Since these might Include other buildings at the same site that are not PCHs, this check can at best be a soft check. Please add the list of these postal codes here.
    • from a data perspective, what do you mean by "admitted directly"? If I were to build a check, where would I find that? OR maybe I don't need to know, but then I need to have a definition of what combination of data would be an error.

    Integrity check

    • ... unless they are discharged somewhere else entirely, like another ward. So what do we really mean with this? That they can't come from one PCH and go to another or maybe "home" after all?
      • I realize this maybe hard to do. what I mean here is that if one is already a PCH resident, when leaving the hospital, the dispo location must be a PCH location too. or is a patient is already in CHF, the destination when leaving the hospital must either be a CHF or another PCH.

    • The listed postal codes are correlated to the items ‘PCH’ and ‘Chronic Health facility’ of the Pre-Acute Living Situation. Since the data collectors are collecting the postal code from the patient’s address, will it be possible to automatically fill up the Pre-Acute Living Situation as PCH or Chronic Health facility if the PCH postal codes are entered or ‘other ways’ to link the two fields and make them consistent. Info about PCH is now getting more attention/request. Tina, Will this be hard to do? Any suggestions?
      • I have changed my mind to add the PCH postal code to the Postal_Code_Master due to the possible effect on its size (when adding a new column containing text where most of the records will only be blanks). It is better to have it in separate table since this pertains to Winnipeg area only. I have added the exact address of these PCH facilities - link to table in email sent on Jan 12.18 at 1224 hrs from p:Julie Mojica
        • Is any change to CFE still required then? If not, please remove this discussion and heading. Ttenbergen 15:47, 2019 July 4 (CDT)

    Coordination of data between collectorsWe have discussed this at Task meeting and will tweak these instructions. Val is working on this, updates coming, just some working notes for now:

    • sharing serials if that is still done anywhere, I think not... if anyone is still sharing a location and serial pool please post here...
    • "One more point, D5 & B3 use consecutive numbers also. These would be hard to keep track of without a paper log for the really quick admissions & discharges that are sometimes seen on B3.--CMarks 13:22, 2012 October 1 (CDT)"
    Copy here only centralized data.vbs
  • What does it mean work as a set? Does this mean if one change (like the path in the "copy to here only centralized data.vbs" then push/pull script also needs to have changes? Pagasa does not seem to have any issue with the push or pull script.--Trish Ostryzniuk 11:44, 2019 July 15 (CDT)
    • Yes, when one of the three is changed, e.g. for a path, the others should need to be changed as well. Why would Pagasa be having issues with the scripts? If this is about the changes to the scanning folder, that is not part of push pull so would not expect any problems. Ttenbergen 12:47, 2019 July 18 (CDT)

  • At STB we keep track of CLI and VAP's on a paper list in our binders for the purpose of our Quality coordinator in the hospital. Lois and I attend the VAP committee meetings and need to share this information at the meeting each time (monthly). --LKolesar 10:26, 2017 July 19 (CDT)
    • Would it make sense to just notify the coordinator with this info ASAP when the VAP/CLI happens? That's what we do at STB, we use a button right in the program for it so there is very little overhead for collectors. One less thing to carry around, and the coordinator gets the info in a more timely manner... Ttenbergen 18:04, 2017 July 26 (CDT)
  • Deceased patientsI needed clarification on this. I recently had a patient that was sent for a coronary angio, who arrested and died during the procedure.

  • Had code T88.7 when we first started but was later changed to this code. I have deleted the original code from the tables, but it might still linger in other references. Once you are sure you don't need this info, please delete the comment. Since this would only exist in test data we don't need to keep it long-term.
  • Dx PrimaryFor reporting purposes, Julie puts the primary diagnosis into 8 different categories:
    • respiratory disorders
    • post cardiac arrest
    • trauma and poisoning
    • metabolic/renal/GI/hypovolemic shock
    • cardiac disease
    • neurologic disorder
    • post-operative care
    • sepsis/septic shock

    Traditionally we have put the "primary" diagnosis as the main reason they are in the ICU (or ward). The problem is that the reason they came may not really fit the proper category in all cases. For example, the patient came to the ICU with respiratory failure requiring intubation, however the patient may have sepsis which caused the respiratory failure and technically we should be putting sepsis as our primary. Another example is cardiac arrest which traditionally has always been put as the primary diagnosis. However, it does not always capture the correct category which is why they went into cardiac arrest. They may have had an overdose or an airway obstruction or apnea or sepis or it may be a true cardiac event. We would put the cause still as #1 along with the cardiac arrest but it would be missed because Julie only picks up the primary (checked) diagnosis. Putting cardiac arrest as primary can miss the true category. To make it even more complicated however, there is a category for cardiac arrest so which is more important to capture? We all need direction on which diagnosis is "primary". --LKolesar 13:38, 2019 June 25 (CDT)

      • I guess the question is if any dxs can not be captured in those 8 groups. If they are all captured there is no problem, or is there? Ttenbergen 10:09, 2019 October 4 (CDT)
  • need to resolve EMIP and figure out where that info will live. Ttenbergen 11:30, 2016 December 29 (CST)
    • If a patient is still considered an ER patient in a CAU, they can potentially be an EMIP if they get accepted by internal medicine but subsequently are discharged or sent to another hospital.
      • At STB CAU contains inpatients under family Medicine (they are not under the ER physician).
        • If the CAU is considered part of ER then I guess patients that are accepted by internal medicine and go out elsewhere could be EMIP's. It depends how you view the area.
          • Is the CAU considered the same as ER or not? Management will have to determine how they want this done. Currently no one at STB collects data at all on the patients in the CAU. --LKolesar 11:49, 2017 October 27 (CDT)

    • I have had a couple of scenarios in the past few months that I have not considered an EMIP, but I thought I should get a second opinion: The emergency notes state that a patient from another hospital/nursing station, etc. is a "direct for internal medicine". The patient gets to our ER, and is immediately deemed too sick for the ward, and ICU is consulted. The internal medicine doctor may or may not have even laid eyes on this patient, and there is no admission order. In these cases, although the medicine doctor may have written a note about seeing the patient in the ER, they never took over care/wrote orders for the patient. How are other collectors entering these patients?Mlagadi 11:38, 2019 October 1 (CDT)
      • I think this scenario is not an EMIP since the Med doc did not took over. Did the patient go to ICU - if yes then this is an ICU admission? --JMojica 17:09, 2019 October 3 (CDT)
        • This is an interesting case because the medicine service technically accepted the patient to begin with, as they came direct to medicine, and an ER physician did not see them. If medicine sees them, then it could be considered an EMIP? but if medicine doesn't see them, who decided that the patient was too sick for the ward? and consulted ICU? if it was the ER physician than I don't think it would be an EMIP. Just my two cents, it is definitely not clear cut Lisa Kaita 11:03, 2019 October 8 (CDT)

    • Yes, Pagasa finds missing items. See #Applicable checks for the kinds of things she checks.
    • Not sure how this editing flag would look in CCMDB. ... Just wondering how this would work??--LKolesar 13:54, 2017 May 2 (CDT)
      • This would probably end up as a list of items that was entered for this patient that should be confirmed in TISS. EG if you enter an endoscopic CCI for a pt, the list would contain that entry as something you should confirm is present on TISS. In theory you guys are already doing these cross checks, but apparently Pagasa and Julie are finding discrepancies... Ttenbergen 15:20, 2019 October 4 (CDT)
    • I personally would not like to have more error messages pop up during data entry. I know how the tiss and other data relate and re-check this frequently. Also, there are exceptions to the checks. For example, a person can have a cardioversion, endoscopy, temp pacer, etc. which would be coded in the complications but if it happened off the unit, it would not be on the tiss. Tiss is only for things that happen in the ICU. --LKolesar 06:54, 2017 May 4 (CDT)
      • Agreed, this would also be one more thing collectors have to check. It would not be likely to include any checks that are not 100% checks. Ambiguous situations like what you describe, Laura, already can't have cross checks, so would not be part of this list.

    • Please have a look at Admit Procedure, it should explain whether to code a procedure or not. There is no explicit exception for Dialysis. If the info there does not give you the answer you need, please elaborate. If the info is there, then, would you have looked there? How can we make clearer to look there? Ttenbergen 11:53, 2019 February 13 (CST)

    • We used to have a special procedure for indicating if a renal transplant patient received dialysis post transplant under the tasks. If we are now only coding HD once, it will often be missed if the patient required HD post renal transplant. Do we care about collecting this information? There is the post procedural renal failure code that will be coded in the acquireds, but this does not automatically mean that they received dialysis.
      • AG REPLY -- I don't see any special reason to need this info. Unless Julie tells us it's being requested, I think we can do without it.

    High dose chemotherapy as primary admitThis page is listed as an exception in Definition of a Medicine Service admission so I wanted to make sure we include that instruction with the new codes. However, what _is_ the new code for this? Found nothing suitable in CCI Picklist, CCI component 2 codes - what was done, and ICD10 Diagnosis List only has Antineoplastic/chemotherapy or immunosuppressive drugs, adverse effect which doesn't seem a real match either. In general we would only code the cancer now, right, but this is a bit of a special case, so do we want to treat it separately?
    • AG REPLY -- we don't need this at all and there's no way to code it specifically in ICD10 -- except that such an admission would have the Dx code of the cancer being treated, and the CCI code for the chemotherapy

    Hypokalemia, severe or symptomaticThe following guideline was only meant to apply to the categories listed in it. This dx, Hypokalemia, severe or symptomatic is not in one of those categories. If we want to expand the rule to other categories we need to discuss that more broadly than just this diagnosis. Flagging this for task.

    Repeated events

    If this happens repeatedly during the same ward or unit stay, only code it the first time it happens, rather than each time it happens. See ICD10 codes only coded the first time for other diagnoses coded this way.

    • A person has a self-limited episode of A-fib. It goes away and then recurs. Only code the first one.
    • A person has a self-limited episode of A-fib. It goes away but then he has an episode of V-tach. As this is a different diagnosis, both of these should be listed, but only code once each.
    • Patient comes in with hypokalemia. It’s treated and remits, but the next day it recurs. Only code the first time.

    Isolation, infectiousFor patients who are admitted and have pre existing MRSA to code infectious isolation as an acquired CCI code is counterintuitive if it is present and treated with isolation on admission. Pre existing colonization would be included as an ADMIT DX if treated with isolation, and the isolation would be included as an admit CCI procedure.
    • I agree, it does feel counterintuitive, but if we are following the WIKI guidelines, it seems like this is how we are supposed to code it. I think their is currently a lot of discrepancy in how this is being coded.
      • there seems to be confusion all around when to code something as an admit vs acquired vs comorbid. One example we have seen, someone comes in to ICU with stab would injury to heart, has had cardiac arrests, and is in shock. We see the trauma injury to heart coded as comordid. Need to discuss collection instruction tweek that would help
        • Allan recently updated Admit Procedure with info that is relevant to this. I wonder if the instructions on this page are just a remnant from an earlier iteration of the Admit instructions. As I read the current ones, you would not code this. But yes, good we are taking it to Task...
    Kidney Transplant Coding Guidelines
  • If patients have a history of parathyroidectomy, then you can code a Comorbid Diagnosis of Past history, removal of organ NOS
    • why would this have been in the kidney instructions rather than the page of the dx that should be used (where it is already mentioned)? We want to avoid re-stating things - if we ended up changing how this is coded in the future, the instructions on this page would most likely be forgotten in the update.
  • Kidney, acute tubular necrosis (ATN)
    • If a patient has ATN on admission and later requires CRRT for kidney failure, do we need to put an acquired code of Kidney, acute renal failure NOS or not? The crrt goes into the CCI codes. --LKolesar 12:11, 2018 December 5 (CST)
      • What is special about this dx that would have you not code it? Is it that you are wondering whether coding a CCI means you don't have to code a dx? They are different things, you would still need to code the dx. Am I misunderstanding the question? Ttenbergen 07:09, 2018 December 14 (CST)

    LOS Medicine per ward stayHi Dr. Garland,A thought came up after the last Task meeting related to the discussion on using Service LOS vs. Physical bed LOS (location). We also have A/D/H service patients go to the ward D5. This ward is typically less acute and patients will transfer to D5 from all of the medicine wards (A4/H4/D4/B3/H7). The patients retain their service (A/D/H) while they are on D5, some patients will switch attending (to the D5 Attending), others will stay with the same Attending they had prior to arrival on D5, but the service will remain the same. The Attendings on D5 do not have a specific service and, there is no rule as to which patients switch to the D5 attending. Some patients will be discharged from D5 still under the same Attending that cared for them prior to arrival on D5. When patients leave A4/D4/H4/B3/H7 their profiles are completed (discharged) by the designated ward collector and a new profile is created by the D5 collector.Thanks, Val Penner, May 16.19

Since then we added a listing for default values and ranges, and the BP Helper button, and the reference values and ranges on the Patient viewer tab APACHE. Would you say that these issues are addressed or is this still a problem?

    These comments were made a long time ago, before we used EPR, and before we split the admit time into Accept DtTm and Arrive DtTm. Are any of these still relevant? If not I would like to clean them out.
    We certainly have more guidelines now than we did in 2011... is this still a concern?

    • who is this report given to? thank you--TOstryzniuk 18:40, 30 November 2010 (CST) Ttenbergen 23:43, 2017 June 7 (CDT)

    What is the Mortality and readmission report report?
    Multiple encounter consistency checksThe task is currently done by the Statistician and we'd like to get it off her plate.

    Night Time DischargesWhy only to wards? How about to home?
    Non-standard ICD10 DiagnosesDx grouping
    • With our addition of codes, collectors may use one of our codes rather than the closest standard ICD10 code. In that case, the dx would not show up in the range. How should we address this? The most likely candidates above seem Bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia (BOOP, cryptogenic organizing pneumonia (COP)) and SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome)
      • AG REPLY -- for this nonstd BOOP code, there are no existing issues regarding any of the comorbid groups (e.g. Charlson)
        • Allan, could you confirm that that this is what we found when we looked into BOOP.
    • AG REPLY --- so far Tina the only 2 U-codes that would ever be a primary dx are U04 and U14.68 -- which belong respectively to ICD10 chapters J and E. But whenever we add a new U-code we need to remember to decide which chapter (if any) it needs to be included under. Tina to add to template.
    Notes field
  • A dx should not be entered into ICD10 unless it is known and confirmed (ICD10_collection#.22Suspected.22_Diagnoses). Are collectors still entering unconfirmed dxs into ICD10 and noting so in Notes? This should not be happening... Ttenbergen 10:19, 2019 September 16 (CDT)
    • if data is INCOMPLETE, main does not rely on DX info. If DX has not been confirmed, notes field is good place to put a Clear note to self or to collector who is covering you.Trish Ostryzniuk 17:26, 2017 November 20 (CST)
      • As confirmed with Julie, Main office uses the Primary Admit Diagnosis even for incomplete records, so dx codes should not be coded for suspected dxs in ICD10. If we really want to change this, then instructions on ICD10_collection#.22Suspected.22_Diagnoses need to be made consistent with those on this page. Ttenbergen 10:19, 2019 September 16 (CDT)

    • Perhaps tagging things for main office, as indicated below, should be done differently or in different place as notes are difficult to sift through in main office. Some collectors delete notes before they send. Others put no notes. People use non standard abbreviation or own codes which is not clear for main office.
    Nursing WorkloadWhat are the details?
    Average or mean? Different in description and definition.
    Object with variable error
    Off ward fieldCurrent way of checking through transfer list from ER will miss off ward patients who arrived at off-ward locations from elsewhere than emerg. Laura and Tina discussed, did not find solution yet, should be rare, though. 13:41, 2017 March 1 (CST)
    We collect data on some patients who never arrive on one of our units, e.g. EMIPs any other scenarios? There was a page for the HSC off warders I think...)
    Out of Memory Error
    Outreach efforts
    Over Census at MidnightWhat are the details?
    PHIA policy
    PL 2Phin Fake or Blank_dev_CFE As per meeting with Allan, Julie and Pagasa: (1) only if complete AND (2) only do links in incomplete if have PHIN.
    PL Chart 9 Digit
    • Function Validate Chart should capture all of these in CCMDB.accdb. Emailed Pagasa to find out if she ever actually finds any in here. If she does we need to fix Function Validate Chart, if she doesn't she could stop running this check.
    • Got this 9 digit chart error today. PTorres 11:37, 2019 August 22 (CDT)
      • Sorry, just saw this; was it a true error, and if so, what was the Chart number that was causing it? Probably too late to figure out for this particular instance, but if it happens again, that info would be helpful. I just confirmed again that CCMDB.accdb should trap this error, so we would need to find out if there is something collectors do differently to let this through.
    PL SamePHIN Site Diff chart_dev_CFE 1 this query has reached the 2GB limit, must see if I can lean it out or otherwise reduce the size
    PL missing L Tables contentHave there been more since?
    Confirm this only deals with complete records
    • Pagasa, could you please log here when this query lists errors, and what was found to be the problem (ie whether there was data in CCMDB.accdb that didn't make it, or no data in first place.
    Palliative Service
    • there was a question about palliation at beginning vs end of stay. It was discussed at task but never cleaned up. Could you have a look a this page? If this is all no longer an option, please delete the section. If it was resolved, then what did we decide? Or was that why we starte Comfort Care? Ttenbergen 00:01, 2018 November 27 (CST)
    Panelling or Discharge PlanningThat link no longer goes anywhere, the heading is not on that page. Can the reference be deleted from here, or do we need to review? And, how will this affect the use of the Category:Awaiting/delayed transfer codes? Ttenbergen 14:51, 2018 September 6 (CDT)
    Parked in ERseveral of these should probably be retired once last pt with them in previous location are discharged. Please let Tina know when they should go.
    Patient viewer
    • I just tried to finally do this and realized have no note on what that old tab order was. I know we discussed it back when we made this change. If anyone still has the order around, please put it here and I will change the order back to that.
    PatientFollow Project
    • The list would need to be exported on a regular basis and then made available to collectors. How would this best be done?
    • There was talk about EPR lists to help collectors keep track of their patients. If we use that method then how will we handle it when there needs to be coverage?
    • How do we make sure no pts are missed?
    • How do we make sure no pts are duplicated?

    The potential to either, have multitudes of patients duplicated, or more importantly, patients missed seems astronomical. Inadvertently duplicating patients will end up being way more work for data collectors. How will we, as data collectors even know that we have duplicated a patient that another data collector has already done? Or conversely, how will we know if we have missed a patient?

    • It should be questioned then whether amalgamating all data collection units within a site for example there are 4 medicine collection units at STB + EMIPs how to possibly track and reconcile all these lists with any semblance of accuracy. This would be a very labor/time intensive and complicated process, as well as a significant logistical challenge. Use of EPR lists to create further lists/spreadsheets in Excel seems redundant and a risky proposition in terms of inclusion and accuracy. There are also potential PHIA considerations whereas patient information on laptops is currently stored/accessed through a separate program, what are the implications for "personal" and/or redundant storage of patient information on data collector accounts? Pamela Piche 10:19, 2019 September 5 (CDT)
    Pharm Flow Completelegacy data field
    Pneumonia, ventilator-associated (VAP)where is that list of sources, did it get lost in an edit?
    There is often a difficulty in trying to apply this criteria in the neuro population, as they will have elevation in both T and WBC for very long periods which are not related to infection, and obviously already have a change in LOC. How should we deal with this issue? (Joyce)

    Potential Change
    Pre op Admit-Cardiovasc PatientThis is not coded under ICD10 or CCI. Do we report this, and therefore need to accommodate otherwise, or how will we treat this? We have Preparatory care (incl preop optimization) but that doesn't capture the full concept. Ttenbergen 22:45, 2018 November 27 (CST)
    Pre-2017-07-30 Overstay Predictor Project Collection Instructions
    Pre-OP Admit - Research Patient - CardiovascularThis is not coded under ICD10 or CCI. Do we report this, and therefore need to accommodate otherwise, or how will we treat this? We have Preparatory care (incl preop optimization) but that doesn't capture the full concept. Ttenbergen 22:45, 2018 November 27 (CST)
    Pre-linking checksnot working right now due to PL_SamePHIN_Site_Diff_chart size limit
    This automatic list includes an PL missing L Tables content - where does it fit in into the order in which you run these above? It is likely a very first thing, right?
    Previous Location field
    • In the instructions above it says to select "other - known but not listed" this is not in the dropdown as an option.
    • Turns out location missing/unknown wasn't implemented either. Is there any concern if we implement this now?
    • Implement both now
    Previous Service field
    • The Registry Patient Type field was replaced by the Previous Service field, how will the patient types be derived from the previous service field? the s_previous_service table must have a column defining the patient type.
      • Patient Type is Surgical if previous service is Cardiac Surgery, General surgery ,etc.,
      • Patient type is Cardiac if previous service is Cardiology,
      • what about Patient type Medical? if Ob/Gyne or Emergency Medicine, is it Medical type? how about critical care?
      • It was also mentioned earlier to use the diagnosis instead, can we begin working on this? --JMojica 15:48, 2019 May 21 (CDT)
      • If I remember right it the Registry Patient Type data was supposed to be inferred from several fields, not just Previous Service field, but I can't remember the details either. We can absolutely add a column for this to s_previous_service table once we know what we need. Ttenbergen 12:49, 2019 June 4 (CDT)
    Primary Admit Diagnosis
    • They are used in the periodic quarter and fiscal year reports of both the Critical Care and Medicine Programs. (Julie)
      • are the two I linked to above those reports? Ttenbergen 14:03, 2015 April 20 (CDT)

    • How will the primary admit dx involving ICD10 be handled - another query? or be combined to Primary_admit of old dx? --JMojica 09:17, 2019 January 31 (CST)
      • I have built query Query L_ICD10_primary and documented it. Julie, once you have found this and read it, please delete.

    • The query Primary_admit of CFE contains multi records per D_ID. These are the records with admit dates before or on Dec 31, 2018 and are still in the unit by Jan 1, 2019. The L_Dxs of these cases have all the same priority number.
    Procedure when there are differences between L Log and L PHIWhy, what does that tell you? The only way I can imagine this would happen is if the record was deleted in centralized L_Log. In that case, if you are lucky and there is still a ccmdb_data with the completed/sent record, you can follow the Re-sending data process. If not, find it in a previous version of Centralized data.mdb, print or write down all data for the record, and manually re-enter it in a CCMDB.accdb and follow the Re-sending data process. Or what do you do? Ttenbergen 21:38, 2019 February 6 (CST)
    Processing errors in patient data


    Automate the populating of notes so button just does it. 
    • raise an input box for a summary, if gets content put data and content into Notes, else put nothing.
    Project ABO TEE
  • If there is no TEE done pre-CPB (cardiopulmonary bypass), then can you use a pre-op standard Echo-cardiogram for this?--LKolesar 13:19, 2015 September 16 (CDT)
    • Could you ask the cardiologists who wanted this data this question? Ttenbergen 22:28, 2019 March 9 (CST)
  • Project Borrow arrivedid they ever get back to us? no response from HSC SICU --JMojica 10:14, 2019 May 6 (CDT)

    QA Infection VAPwill we still need to collect this in ICD10, since I think all the data now lives in the dx codes as well. I am holding off on implementing Query s tmp QAInf tmp no dx until resolved. same reply as in QA CLI. --JMojica 12:04, 2018 December 27 (CST)
    QA Septic ShockIf we ever pick this back up we need to answer: Is "Every entry for project QA Septic must have either a date or a time." a request for a cross check? or does that check exist already?
    Quarterly reportWhat is the Quarterly report report?
    Query Import request matcherThis part of the cross-check is now well understood and ready to program.
    This one is fairly easy, Pagasa will try to make it.

  • A patient might arrive intubated, so there would be no intubation. Does this check really make sense? Ttenbergen 23:23, 2019 March 25 (CDT)
    • I have revised the conditions, pls check if they now make sense.--JMojica 16:38, 2019 July 9 (CDT)

    Query check CCI must have entryPatients without CCI entries are slipping through and found by PL missing L Tables content , must fix PTorres 09:42, 2019 February 7 (CST)
    Query check ICD10 ESRD and AKI only if transplantWould the past history really allow for this? i think only a CCI makes it OK to have both an ESRD and an AKI dx in same patient.
    Query check ICD10 ESRD vs AP ARF
    • some of these give false positives for transplants, review what's up.
      • I have heard nothing else about these false positives I think - are they still an issue? Ttenbergen 15:19, 2019 June 18 (CDT)
    Query check ICD10 ESRD vs ARF
    • some of these give false positives for transplants, review what's up.
      • I have heard nothing else about these false positives I think - are they still an issue? Ttenbergen 15:19, 2019 June 18 (CDT)
        • Just heard from Michelle that these are still an issue
    Query check ICD10 chronic vent acute resp failure1ChronicVent
    • Question from Joanna: "Question for you… I have a patient on chronic vent at home. He develops a raging pneumonia and has to be admitted to ICU in respiratory failure. I combined the Chronic dependence on mechanical ventilator code with Pneumonia, NOS and Respiratory failure (insufficiency) NOS, acute, but I’m getting the following cross check error when I try to check off the diagnosis box:" (link to this page): Patient has a chronic vent code and an acute respiratory failure, which should not be happening in same pt.
      • I think this is more of a “how do we want to code and report this” question than a cross check question. Do we want to be able to code chronic vent with acute failure in some circumstances? If so, what are those circumstances. Or are they so complicated that we just need to abandon this check?
    • AG REPLY --- I feel your pain. Since we DO want this crosscheck, the best solution is to remove the resp failure code here, and IF YOU WANT (not required) in it's place code the aspect of resp function that is now worse, e.g. Hypoxemia (hypoxia)
    Query check ICD10 duplicatesthe count is wrong, there wasn't a quick fix, so disabling the query for now. Ttenbergen 15:56, 2019 March 27 (CDT)
    Query check ICD10 mechanism vs traumaq_iatrogenic_trauma This is the query that is what is causing trouble with entries like fractures during CPR etc. For now the check makes no allowance for iatrogenics.
    Query check ICD10 only 1 stage of renal failureq

    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?
      • allow this duplication in different bins
    Query check long transfer delay
  • This would need to be considered as part of Eliminating distinction between different ward types.

    • Requiring notes to have content is really a very soft error check... do we need to consider something better?

    At the meeting about cross checks it was decided to change the cut-off to SD*3; will need to get that from Julie if we ever address the other questions.
    Query s ICD10 Chapter block dxsany other plans for these?
    Query s tmp Bording Loc sensible DtTm vs no borrow
    • This cross check had been disabled for Borrow Arrive because there were many errors: check was disabled in VBA with comment "2019-01-24 disabled for now because too many errors". I think we were concerned at the time because of high workload and fresh ICD10/CCI and didn't want to analyze and fix then. We will need to review what this should be to get an acceptable number of errors only.
      • Are we ready to have a cross check for this that requires either
        • no borrow and a checkbox and no time
        • at least one borrow location and a time
    Query s tmp Borrow sensible DtTm vs no borrow
    • This cross check does not seem to require a check box to send completed chart ** confirmed, check is disabled in VBA with comment "2019-01-24 disabled for now because too many errors". I think we were concerned at the time because of high workload and fresh ICD10/CCI and didn't want to analyze and fix then. We will need to review what this should be to get an acceptable number of errors only.
    Questioning data back to collectorsz
    • Possible future scenario: The data processor puts the concern into the Notes field and sets the RecordStatus field to "questioned". Next time the collector sends, the record is returned to the laptop by a series of queries. The collector updates the record, sets it to "complete" and sends it in with the next round of sends, at which time it will be processed like any other record.

    This process is more automated and would need to be validated before we could implement. It would be the least work for all involved, though, I think.

    We keep discussing this, talked about it again today. Ttenbergen 17:44, 2016 December 1 (CST)

    Reporting from ICD10/CCI
    • Different procedures would be listed with the same CCI code; will Julie easily interpret and utilize CCI codes for reporting?
    • Do we care that we will not be able to differentiate between a Blakemore tube from an Upper GI scope with banding or hemostasis, when in CCI they both look the same: (T) Stomach, pylorus... and Control of Bleeding. --LKolesar 14:11, 2018 May 1 (CDT)

    • Julie, the above question specifically affects some projects you work with as well - do you think unifying this rule will be a problem for any of them?

    Also affected are :

    Does anyone think making this one rule for all will be a problem?

    • AG REPLY --- yes we can and should go through ALL ICD10 codes and indicate which of the 3 Dx Types they're allowed in (ie deal with Controlling Dx Type for ICD10 codes). AG needs to be reminded to deal with this around June 2019

      • Basil Evan , QI officer, is asking that perhaps a worksheet be submitted to him regarding which criteria were met for either VAP for CLI when collector make determination from chart. Perhaps we could make a checklist in TMP instead in regards to which criteria are met for these two special projects instead of paper worksheets that are different at each collection site?

    Severe sepsis
    • What is the definition of "organ failure" as it pertains to severe sepsis? For example, is an acute rise in Cr (AKI) enough to meet the definition or does the patient have to be on dialysis? Could we have some criteria for the failure of different organs? --Jvelasco 15:32, 2019 May 21 (CDT)
    • AG INFO: This is a very hard issue that everybody around the world is struggling with. The SEPSIS-3 guidelines operationalizes it by defining it as a certain rise in SOFA score from baseline. BUT it's not a very good clinical definition because obtaining the baseline sofa data is a lot of work. So I'll contemplate this.

    • Many of the error messages have been made more specific by now. If any need tweaking still please let me know. Ttenbergen 12:04, 2019 September 22 (CDT)
    Statistical AnalysisThis article will likely be one of the more common landing points for external users. What do we want to tell them? Do we have any project articles we want to link in that especially highlight what we can do? ALERT Scale?Ttenbergen 22:50, 2017 June 7 (CDT)
    System resource exceededHerman, do we have an idea which versions would be the "working" vs "broken" ones?
    emailed Brandon to see if this might be possible to test.
    TISS Form (TISS28)
    TISS at 2300 Hours
    TISS28 Form Scanning
    • If a frozen version is kept available during TISS scanning anyways then there is no reason to not do these checks in CFE, is there? Or rather, collectors sending would not be the reason. Pagasa, let's talk about this. Maybe we can make this more convenient for you. Or write down the actual reason why it can't be done. Ttenbergen 00:34, 2017 November 12 (CST)
      • Discussed this with Pagasa. It would mean doing scanning during send time, and likely doing all fixes during pull time, so all checks could actually be done form CFE. Discussed also w Pagasaa that we would delete the error checks from TISS so there is no duplicates getting out of sync.
        • Do we want to make this change then, Pagasa? You would be the only one who would be affected, so mostly up to you. Maybe confirm with Trish.


    • Put the queries in a drop down list or accessible through a button in TISS.mdb, similar to way queries are set up in CFE. Trish Ostryzniuk 11:21, 2019 February 7 (CST)
    TISS28 backup and start.vbsDo you still use this? It is not linked, so as part of what process?

    Temporary page to list dxs documented as requiring treatment to be coded
  • Tina -- to deal with these, let's make a template and put it in all the ICD10 pages that link to the list right below here. That template to say: This is an entity which you SHOULD code even if it is not being treated.
    • I have made Template:ICD10 Guideline code even if not treated; should it be applied to the new codes or only those old pages?
      • We need to decide were to put that info; adding it to old pages is probably not the right place. ICD10 collection might be it - will people look there?
        • Emailed Trish about this. Ttenbergen 09:07, 2019 April 30 (CDT)

    The Accuracy of Administrative Data for Identifying the Presence and Timing of Admission to Intensive Care Units in a Canadian Provincehow did we support this publication?
    The ability to achieve complete revascularization is associated with improved in-hospital survival in cardiogenic shock due to myocardial infarction: Manitoba cardiogenic SHOCK Registry investigatorshow did we support this publication?
    Thyroid disorder, NOS
    • How to code a tumor that is on a specific organ but we don't have a DX code and the type of tumor is NYD (Example:thyroid tumor NYD) (see ICD10 collection#Regarding "Suspected" Diagnoses.)
      • I don’t understand what the new version would mean as a statement, so it might still need clarification. Ttenbergen 09:35, 2019 April 30 (CDT)
    Transfer Delay1q
    • This says it's only for survivors. Is that actually right, to exclude deceased pt? They were still delayed while alive so still "wasted" bed time. Excluding them may be inconsistent with our definition of Transfer Ready as the first time they are ready.
    Transfer Ready DtTm fieldwould need to be reconciled as part of Eliminating distinction between different ward types
    Transfer time rule
  • will we still want this now that we have Visit Admit DtTm field and will hopefully eventually move to using the EPR to glean arrive and dispo? Ttenbergen 17:06, 2016 May 25 (CDT)
    • deferring the question to after when Julie has done the new multiple encounter linking with Dispo. Ttenbergen 15:58, 2016 June 27 (CDT)
  • Transfusion of plateletsThere are conflicting and misleading instructions here. We might need to take out Template:CCI Collection Mode since this is a one-of. Same for Template:CCI Guideline Transfusions.
    Urgent CareOak ER has not been retired yet in s_dispo since it must be present until last pt who was admitted from there is off laptops. Will need to be cleaned up when that is the case.

    VIC S3
    • Tina this table is not consistent with the VIC MICU table above. which one do we want to keep? Trish Ostryzniuk 18:42, 2017 November 20 (CST)
      • what do you mean?
    Vacation and staff shortage collection prioritiesFor coverage on the medicine ward isn't the overstay project the priority and not the discharges. Are we not trying to generate a color on admissions as soon as possible to identify reds and letting managers know as soon as possible? GHall 11:51, 2017 August 14 (CDT)
    Validation against Patient Registry DataThis page was started long ago to keep track of our attempt to get access to the registry. I think it would be good to re-convene on it so we have a central point where past efforts and current efforts can be tracked. That would also make it easier to take it to task or steering and have consistent info. Do you have a log of this somewhere? We can rename it if you want.

    Ward admission log formsI think you really mean the EPR in general. We should probably review that page and the local ones since we use it rather more specifically now than when we first started. Actually, what we probably want is a page for EMR Web Reports. Or do we need specific pages for specific reports that we use, so we can link to them? Ttenbergen 16:11, 2019 May 17 (CDT)
    Which sites still use the ward logs?
    Wireless networking
    • Med Rec is mentioned both in "has wireless" and in "no wifi" - which is right?

    • HSC collectors: it looks like either wireless or tethered network connections are available everywhere now. Please write down here if you find places where you enter into your laptops where there is still no connectivity. Thanks!
