The data element TRAN_OUT indicates that the patient was transferred out of the hospital and is defined using the discharge status. The value 1 indicates the patient was transferred to a different acute care hospital (DISPUNIFORM=2). The value of 2 indicates the patient was transferred to another type of health facility (DISPUNIFORM=5). TRAN_OUTN is missing if the discharge disposition is missing or invalid.
