If you obtained a copy of the 2019 KID prior to December 1, 2022, we recommend using the following information to correct the assignment of the data element PCLASS_ORPROC (indicating at least one operating room procedure is included on the discharge record). The value PCLASS_ORPROC is incorrect on a small number of records: 0.4 percent of the 2019 KID.Incorrect Assignment of PCLASS_ORPROC
The data element PCLASS_ORPROC should indicate whether there is at least one major diagnostic or therapeutic ICD-10-PCS procedure code on the discharge record. This is determined by the information included in the array of data elements PCLASS1-PCLASS25 for the Procedure Classes Refined for ICD-10-PCS included in the DX_PR_GRPS file. The values for the Procedure Classes are correct, but the corresponding value of PCLASS_ORPROC may be incorrect.Two Options to Fix the Assignment of PCLASS_ORPROC
One option is to merge the PCLASS1-PCLASS25 data elements from the DX_PR_GRPS file onto the CORE file and correct the assignment of PCLASS_ORPROC using the following code:
The second option is to download a correction file (provided in CSV format below) that contains a unique record identifier and the corrected values of PCLASS_ORPROC.
