|General SEDD Notes|
The New York State Department of Health's Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System (SPARCS) provides emergency department (ED) data to HCUP in a single outpatient file that also includes ambulatory surgery (AS) and other outpatient services. Outpatient records in SPARCS are edited as using ED services if the 045X outpatient ancillary codes are reported.
Selection of Records for Inclusion in the SEDD
SPARCS provides HCUP with one outpatient file in which ED records are included with records for other nonemergent outpatient services. All records identified by SPARCS as ED are included in the SEDD (HCUP data element STATE_ED=1 based on revenue codes in the 045X range).
Types of Facilities Included in the Files Provided to HCUP by the Partner
New York 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.
Additional SEDD Notes
Unlike other HCUP outpatient databases, the 2005 and 2006 New York Ambulatory Surgery (SASD) and SEDD were processed independently of each other. As a result, any State-defined SASD records that also had evidence of ED services were not included in the SEDD. This occurred on a very small number of records within these two data years and these impacted records can be identified on the SASD using the variable HCUP_ED.
