Question and answer
Q: Where can the UHDDS data elements be found?
A: Medical workers need to be aware of the UHDDS data element facts. The Uniform Hospital Discharge Data Set (UHDDS) was developed to help with patient monitoring across multiple hospital populations. [ It allows for an apples-to-apples comparison of patient data between institutions and even between countries. Not knowing what's included in the data set keeps you behind the best practices curve
and could limit your progress as you work with administrative data and statistics. What's included in the UHDDS The UHDDS was developed by the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics as a way of keeping track of current and evolving health care trends. This included key areas of patient information as well as the kind of data that is needed by statisticians for analyzing health care consumption. The UHDDS was developed over multiple decades, but it's now an almost globally adopted standard. There are a total of 42 possible elements of a UHDDS form. First are basic demographic elements, such as age, gender, ethnicity, marital status and education levels. Another set has to do with the hospital or health facility, including patient numbering systems, type of facility and assigned doctor or nurse. Finally, complete information about the reason for the patient coming to the hospital is recorded, including self-reported diagnosis, physician diagnosis, services rendered by the facility and dates of all procedures. Certain elements of hte UHDDS form don't apply in all cases. For example, a male patient is unlikely to need to complete the section on weight of newborn and delivery. Nor will insurance information be recorded in countries with nationalized health services. However, the core focus of the form is to gather standardized but complete information about the presenting ailment and the individual patient. How UHDDS helps health care professionals succeed The UHDDS data elements facts help health care professionals succeed by helping track health care consumption and group patients into the appropriate classes. ]
