March 2022 AHRQ has updated the HCUP Summary Trend Tables, and HCUP Visualization of Inpatient Trends in COVID-19 and Other Conditions, depicting State-specific monthly trends in inpatient stays related to COVID-19 and other conditions. These data tables and visualization now include the third quarter of 2021 for 8 States and full year 2020 for 43 States. In addition, tables showing monthly trends in treat-and-release emergency department visits are now available as part of the HCUP Summary Trend Tables.

AHRQ has released an update to the Procedure Classes Refined for ICD-10-PCS, v2022.2. This version includes codes valid through FY 2022, in addition to the nine ICD-10-PCS procedure codes related to the introduction or infusion of therapeutics and COVID-19 vaccines, which became effective April 1, 2022. With this update, the identification of major surgeries has been aligned with the definition of operating room procedures in the upcoming AHRQ Quality Indicator (QI) software, v2022 (to be released in Summer 2022). The Procedure Classes Refined for ICD-10-PCS can be downloaded from the Research Tools section of HCUP-US.
