Patient Diagnostic Mix Table - Enhancement
We have changed the criteria for including a claim in a patient count for metrics in the Patient Diagnostic Mix by Distinct Patients table. This change impacts the counts in the columns identified in the colored box, (See Screenshot). This table will be found on the Analyze Page under the Utilization Tab.
In previous data sets, we placed a patient count into a quarter based on the date of admission to the selected facility. Starting with the 2019-Q2 data, we place a patient count in the quarter of discharge instead.
This change will only impact patients who are admitted in one quarter and discharged in the next. So, for example, a patient admitted March 30 and discharged on April 3 will now be counted in Q2 - April, May, June, instead of Q1 - January, February, March.
Percent of Patient Days by Level of Care and Place of Service - Bug Fix
We’ve updated metrics on the Hospice Detail page in the Percent of Patient Days by Level of Care and Place of Service table so the sum of the columns adds up to 100%.
This table can be found on the hospice Analyze Page under the Operational Metrics tab.
