|General SEDD Notes|
The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) provides HCUP with an emergency department (ED) data for patients registered in the ED for purposes of seeking ED services, including observation, and not admitted as an inpatient to the same hospital.
Selection of Records for Inclusion in the SEDD
The Florida AHCA provides HCUP with one outpatient file in which ED records are included with records for other nonemergent outpatient services. All records identified by AHCA as ED are included in the SEDD (HCUP data element STATE_ED=1 based on service type 2).
Types of Facilities Included in the Files Provided to HCUP by the Partne
The Florida AHCA provides HCUP with emergency department (ED) data from all licensed hospital-owned EDs in the State. This includes stand-alone (satellite) EDs operating on a Single Group License arrangement under an acute hospital's main campus license.
Exclusion of Records During HCUP Data Processing During HCUP Data Processing
Beginning with 2016 data, records with a discharge disposition of "still a patient" are retained in the HCUP SEDD. Prior to 2016 data, these records were excluded. Beginning in 2010, records with a designation of "admitted as an inpatient" are retained in the SEDD, even though this rarely occurs. Prior to 2010, records with a designation of "admitted as an inpatient" were excluded from the files.
