Mapping of Oxygenation related ICD Proc codes

(Nadya Zvyagina) #1

Hi all,

We’ve got a complaint to multiple mapping again. The codes 93.90, 39.65 are now mapped to two concepts - a procedure and Oxygen drug.
As a result the related costs get doubled in this case, as usual.

It is clear that there is no good solution for this right now.

But let’s agree upon the solution for this particular case.

Option 1: Create a record in Cost table for the procedure only. No cost record for Oxygen.
Option 2: Do not create cost records for such codes at all.

Any other ideas? @Dymshyts, @Christian_Reich, @Alexdavv

mapping (proc and drug)

Your option 1 seems “lesser evil”.

I think the cost of the procedures “includes” the material costs (oxygen in this case).

Agree with this option as well.
@aostropolets is it worth a Themis rule - “When procedure is mapped to Procedure and Drug, then we fill the cost only for Procedure”?

@Dymshyts, @nzvyagina Should I even mention that I advocate for creating pseudo-visits for such cases? :slight_smile: They will inevitably happen here or there in different domains and for different cases. I know that such adjustment requires changes to ETL, but so do disparate solutions to the same problem.

Is there more detailed post about these pseudovisits?

Makes sense.

Definitely, except it should be just a rule for the Cost table.

Why do we need those?
