|General SEDD Notes|
The Nebraska Hospital Association (NHA) provides emergency department (ED) records to HCUP on one outpatient file. Information on the record (i.e., revenue codes and CPT codes) is used to identify resources: ED, AS, and observation stay. Revenue codes 450-459 identify ED visits, while the presence of a surgical procedure indicates an AS record. One record can include multiple types of services. Records for patients treated in the ED, and then treated and released from observation care are also included in the ED data.
Selection of Records for Inclusion in the SEDD
NHA provides HCUP with one outpatient file in which ED records are included with records for other nonemergent outpatient services. All records identified by NHA as ED are included in the SEDD (HCUP data element STATE_ED=1 based on revenue codes 450-459).
Types of Facilities Included in the Files Provided to HCUP by the Partner
NHA provides HCUP with ED data from all member hospital-owned EDs in the State.
Exclusion of Records 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.
Additional SEDD Notes
For data year 2001, NHA informed HCUP that the Nebraska outpatient source data files were approximately 80% complete and that the missing records might reflect patients who lack health insurance and/or less expensive care.
