Data element attributes

Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:

This data element is used to determine a non-admitted patient service event.

The following codes are in the scope of a non-admitted patient service event:

 

Code    Label
GRP Group
IND Individual

 

A non-client event does not have a patient present and is therefore not a non-admitted patient service event.

 

This data element is also used to derive the group session indicator. Records with a value of GRP for the appointment session type code will be assigned a value of 1 for the group session indicator. All other records will be assigned a value of 2 for the group session indicator.

 

In addition, this data element is used to calculate the total number of individual non-admitted patient service events and the total number of group session non-admitted patient service events.

These items are reported nationally against the following data elements:

Establishment—number of individual session non-admitted patient service events, total service events N[NNNNNN]

Establishment—number of group session non-admitted patient service events, total service events N[NNNNNN]
