  • OverviewProvider and discharge rather than person basedNational probability sample of short-stay non-Federal hospitalsAnnual survey since 19653-stage designprimary sampling unit (PSU) facility dischargeAbout 500 hospitals, 370K discharges per yearAbout 92% response rate, in-scope hospitalsAbout half from automated systems, half from manual abstraction in hospital

  • Data Collected: UB 92 - Hospitals Bed size Sources of revenue Ownership Region - Patients- Clinical management Demographics Days of care Diagnoses Source of admission Insurance status Type of Admission Discharge status Procedures/surgery ZIP code Disposition DRG

  • Used for Policy and ResearchAssessment of quality/safety and disparitiesEpidemiology of specific medical conditionsManagement of specific medical conditionsDiffusion of health-care technologiesEffects of policy changesMonitoring changes over time

  • Hospitalizations by Age, U.S., 1970-2004

  • Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) and Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI),1980-2002

  • Context of RedesignData elements limited to UB 92 (UB 04)Meeting needs for future policy and research?Comparative advantage given other data sources, e.g., AHRQ statewide discharges from 41 states?

  • Ratings of Priority IssuesCost of care/use of resourcesincluding efficiency/wasteQuality of care/safetyincluding disparitiesCare delivered in the hospitalSurveillance and public healthincluding surge capacityGlobalizationincluding outsourcing

  • Highest Rated Options for RedesignCoordinate with AHRQ data collection (HCUP)Add clinical depth, e.g., medications, testsAdd resource use/cost/billings/paymentsImprove patient demographics, e.g., ethnicityLink to health-related outcomes, e.g., death index

  • Other OptionsTrack disease-specific careSupplement AHRQ's MEPS with medical record data on inpatientsAdd short-stay admissions and observation statusTrack encounters throughout the hospitalFollow patient over timepre and post hospital careepisode of carepatient after dischargeKeep status quoEliminate NHDS

  • Next StepsSummer 2006: Final conceptual framework Selection of strategy and data elements2006-2007: Feasibility test in 9 hospitals2008: Field test2010: New survey fielded
