Office visit versus Outpatient visit

(Qi Yang) #1


OMOP visit_concept_id list has expanded now and it includes following:

Ambulance Visit
Emergency Room Visit
Emergency Room and Inpatient Visit
Home Visit
Inpatient Visit
Intensive Care
Laboratory Visit
Long Term Care Visit
Office Visit
Outpatient Visit
Pharmacy visit
Rehabilitation Visit

My question is: what is the difference between Office visit and Outpatient visit?

Would Outpatient Visit include Immediate Care type facilities? Office Visit be Primary Care Provider’s office visit - checkups and consultations.
