|General SEDD Notes|
The HCUP Nevada outpatient files were constructed from outpatient billing data received from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), Center for Health Information Analysis (CHIA) under the authority of the Nevada Division of Healthcare Financing and Policy (DHCFP). CHIA provides one outpatient file to HCUP that includes encounter-level data for emergency department (ED) services, outpatient surgery, ambulatory surgery, and other outpatient.
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
CHIA provides HCUP with one outpatient file in which ED records are included with records for other nonemergent outpatient services. All records identified by CHIA as ED are included in the SEDD (HCUP data element STATE_ED=1 based on a place of service value of ED).
ypes of Facilities Included in the Files Provided to HCUP by the Partner
CHIA collects ED data from all licensed 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. 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.
