Hello, We have faced the problem with discharge statuses. The problem is that we have the list of discharge statuses in our source data and their description.
The original plan was to use ‘UB04 Pt dis status’ vocabulary to get concept_id’s. But when we compared the descriptions provided in our data to the descriptions in the vocabulary we found several discrepancies.
Our data - ‘EXPIRED TO BE DEFINED AT STATE LEVEL’
UB04 - ‘Discharged/transferred to Court/Law Enforcement’
Our data - RESERVED FOR NATIONAL ASSIGNMENT
UB04 - Contains meaningful descriptions of these codes, for example ‘Discharged to home or self-care with a planned acute care hospital readmission’
Thus if we simply join this vocabulary we will change the meaning of original data.
The same picture is for ‘UB04 Point of Origin’.
What can we do with this?
