Colonized with organism (not infected)
  • Are all of these actually things that can colonize without infection? We should only list those here that can. I started adding in links but then decided to hold off in case a lot of them drop off this list. Ttenbergen 15:34, 2018 November 28 (CST)

make sure this is consistent with Lab and culture reports

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.
How does Chronic Health Facility fit into this?
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.

  • Need to look at the PCH Postal code data.

It may be relevant to this check that we have ICD10 Imprisonment/incarceration and other info in Prison / Jail / Correctional Institution.

TISS28 Form Scanning
  • 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)

  • 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

Deceased patients
  • Is that really what you want? It will give fact that patient died, but miss new location.

  • Is that really what you want? It will give occupancy but miss actual time of death.

to be done likely after DSM: add destinations to organ donor deaths.
1 Julie asks:

Once that is implemented, I can set up Check dx implying death across encounters.
Correcting suspect links also needs to be dealt with when this is done. And needs to be documented.

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.

Comfort Care
  • We may be able to stop this when ICD10 comes; but continued collection wont break anything.

    • Julie, can you add here why this can stop when ICD10 comes? Is it because we will start collecting Palliative care? Because that is not really the same definition...

    We will need to update a the reference to this in Palliative_care#This_code_vs_Comfort_Care once decided.

    APACHE Comorbidities in ICD10 codes
    • 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)

    • There was a comment on Chronic Health APACHE about extracting the APACHE Comos from comorbid diagnoses instead using the ranges Allan provided. Provided this list is updated to the newest ranges Allan has provided, do you see a problem with using this approach instead and stopping collection of the Chronic Health APACHE field going forward?
    23 December 2018 04:06:53Ttenbergen
    S ICD10 table
    • There is a field "ICD10_ID" which is legacy and won't be used. Planned to remove in next version, leaving for now to have one less moving part during a data update. Ttenbergen 17:06, 2018 April 3 (CDT)

    Instructions for importing a batch of DSM DataSomething is still not right with the code for reconnecting, Tina needs to look into. Ttenbergen 17:04, 2018 May 17 (CDT)
    • This could also be true where no labs were sent for, eg a patient who dies shortly after arrival. In the past we would have entered a "no labs" for these. Do we want to do something similar? It would have to be Pagasa that does it. Might be a lot of extra work. Need to review. (ex. wrong D_ID when exported but found it error and so fixed it before the data for import comes back). For now we do not have an entry like that. And it might not be worth it - what would Pagasa do to check that the no-labs are legit?

    Data dictionarysomething went wrong with this query and it has no data
    Attempt at a easier to follow data dictionary. Is this what you had in mind?
     Yes, this is what I have in  mind. Thanks.  Some suggestions: 
    • I just notice some start dates are not the actual start dates - It is important for the users to know how far back the data are available so they can decide the covered period of their study. is it possible to change the date to actual earliest collection start date (not 1 Jan 1900). --JMojica 10:05, 2019 January 3 (CST)
      • The start and end dates are stored on the individual pages. If the list shows 1900 then they were not filled in. If you know what they are and fill them in then this page will list them. I can also change the default if-not-filled value in templates to something other than 1900-01-01. I just needed a value for ranges and filters to work. Ttenbergen 14:49, 2019 January 3 (CST)
    • add a column for program (Critical care only or Medicine only or both).
      • I can do that, but the table is already getting quite wide for a web page. Can we lose any of the columns we currently have? The info you mean is always visible in the pages themselves as well, in case that's sufficient. But, yes, we can tweak what the tables should show. It is done in Template:DataDictionaryQuery (details visible once you edit it...) and removing fields would be easy enough. I can show you how to add fields. Or I can add them once we confirm what we want.

    Tina has changed the ICD10 and CCI templates to use a startdate of 2019-01-01 and will change other default dates as I receive dates Julie wants me to use.

    APACHE CHRONIC stuff related coding schemas

    • This does not trigger APACHE Acute Dxs in ICD10 codes while some other dxs that seem no more "intense" do. Is that right?
      • AG REPLY --- Leave it OUT, it's a wastebasket code and could be acute disorders. ALSO, in Feb we'll shift from tick boxes for the AP2 comorbs to identification via ICD10, for which I've made the coding already.
        • Julie has investigated the APACHE conversion further since this was brought up, so she should be included in any further conversation about this. Ttenbergen 14:45, 2018 August 6 (CDT)

    Check TISS Intubation consistent
    • 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.

    Changing settings in MS Access after first open
    • Dec 31.18 - noticed that digital images of scanned TISS forms in Teleform are no longer being stored anywhere. (screen shot as per email sent on this date) ----Trish
    • Jan 4.18 - Tina just had a look at this with Trish, and I think that error is one of those misleading ones. It turns out the image files are not actually being stored after processing. They used to be, and we need them to be, because we regularly refer back to them. Having an electronic version is why we are able to destroy the paper forms, so we need these. I assume there is a setting in Teleform where you set whether to keep data after processing, and where to keep it. Could you have a look?---Tina

    APACHE Acute DiagnosesDiabetes_mellitus_chronic_complication:_Musculoskeletal

    is selected by the line

    • ns_Z1 Renal/Metabolic NOS NOT admitted to ICU postoperatively AND Any admit diagnosis is N00.^-N39.^, E00.^-E90.^

    In your excel sheet.

    It is a chronic code sort of by definition, so hopefully no one would code it as an admit, but for now they could. And if they did, it would give them APACHE Dx (not como) points.

    Is that really as intended? I suppose even as a chronic code it is a marker for the presence of diabetes, so it wouldn’t necessarily be wrong, but it seems odd, so flagging it.
    need 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)

    Query check ICD10 only 1 stage of renal failurept could have several stages during acquired, right? Is that how we would want to code deterioration?
  • AG REPLY -- not really. 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.
