Questions for Trish

You had a Trish Pending category, but since we are using the automatic lists now, this makes more sense. The category was pretty much empty, and I have cleared it out. Yes, Ok.

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)

  • We made GRA_CAU available as dispo, but this raises questions about how the field should be treated in reporting. Trish emailed Mary Anne Lynch to find out how these units are actually intended to be used now. Ttenbergen 11:35, 2018 March 8 (CST)
    • Trish, did you ever get an answer for this? Ttenbergen 10:18, 2019 November 5 (CST)

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)9 April 2020 17:45:46
Hospitalization in Winnipeg, Canada due to Occupational Disease: A Pilot StudyI see Pat's name... did this actually use the DB or just a collector? how did we support this publication?14 November 2019 00:34:52
Discharge RegisterThe following needs clarification, I don't have a report in front of me, how would a new collector read which of these are EMIPs and which not? Emailed Laura Ttenbergen 16:53, 2019 January 3 (CST)
  • is this just available for STB or is this how GRACE and HSC can find in EPR?Trish Ostryzniuk 18:01, 2019 January 3 (CST)
  • I would think that all the hospitals have this because it is just a demographic issue and I believe that everyone has access to this, just get them to test it in other centers to make sure.--LKolesar 07:56, 2019 January 4 (CST)

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
    • emailed Julie and Trish to make sure they are comfortable with this.
      • Trish, if you are fine with how this is or isn't addressed in ICD10 going fwd, pls remove the tag

    • Checkmark.gif Autopsy & follow up - update guide- Done.
      • Start date 2000 stop 2004.
      • Reminder to collectors Dec 2008 of stop date.
    • Checkmark.gifTransfer ready date and time - Perry Gray working on operational definition & is investigating and planning to set up a process for requesting a bed at HSC. Once this is sorted out, Garland can work with Gray for the other 6 sites to map out admit/transfer/discharge process at each site. STATUS Update: Jan 29.09 - As of March 1.09, HSC ICU must call admitting who will keep a paper record of all bed requests. Tina to connect with Perry and explore the option to set up and EXCEL spreadsheet so that information can be maintained electronically. ICU (BLR & BL) do not want to stop the collection of ICU transfer ready dates/times at this time. Plan is to accumulate and analyze (Julie) these admitting tranfer records for a period of X?months, if they prove to be more accurate, then data collectors will stop collecting from charts. Tina will have to discuss with database programmer (ED), a plan to electronically upload the electronic information into Master ICU database.
      • May 8.09. Reviewed by Julie. Alot of missing information. Reviewed at Task meeting.
        • Nov 9.09 forms still being sent to JJ387. No decision. No changes.
          • May 3.10 - Stop transf/dischg transfer log at HSC. Agreed by Database Steering Committee. Dr. Perry Gray notified and will stop the process. Betty Lou Rock has asked Linda Hathout to attend the Critical Care Coordinating team meeting and explore with this team further ideas that ICU would like to pursue to gather this information. The ICU data collectors will continue collecting transfer/disch ready information from the ICU charts until we hear further from Betty Lou Rock and the CC Coordinating team for an alternative plan.--TOstryzniuk 15:17, 4 May 2010 (CDT)

    • Checkmark.gif - APACHE II - elective surgery YES or NO field - Tentative; ask ED to change label of current repository to EMERGENCY. Needs to be thought through more carefully.
    • suggestion to remap all as follows:
        1. All ELECTIVE surg if = No change to YES
        2. If ADMIT FROM = OR or RR and current ELECTIVE surg = NO, convert to YES.
        3. If ADMIT FROM = any other code and current ELECTIVE surg = YES, leave as NO.
