Healthcare Encounters

The CDASHIG HO domain includes inpatient and outpatient healthcare events (e.g., hospitalizations, nursing home stays, rehabilitation facility stays, medical practitioner office visits).

This domain is used to record information about the event (e.g., type of encounter, timing). Other data about interventions administered or findings measured, observed, or tested during the healthcare encounter should be collected for submission in those respective domains. For example:

  • Information about imaging—for example, MRI or endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), which is a combination of an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and x-ray—would be collected in the Procedures (PR) domain.
  • Laboratory results would be reported in the LB domain.

It may not be necessary to collect data for the HO domain if the planned reporting or analysis is about the interventions and/or findings data rather than the number/types of encounters, the duration of encounters, and so on.

The unit list has been subsetted and alphabetized in this example. The user may determine the appropriate items and order per the protocol.
