Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:Help on this termEmergency patients and outpatients are persons who receive non-admitted care. Group session non-admitted care is care provided to persons who receive direct care within the emergency department or other designated clinics within the hospital and who are not formally admitted at the time when the care is provided. A person who first contacts the hospital and receives non-admitted care, for example through the emergency department, and is subsequently admitted should have both components of care enumerated separately.
