Reporting Data Completeness Issues

The 2007 Inpatient Annual Report was completed using data reported as of 12/1/2010. Starting in 2007, the completeness of the SPARCS data added the review of the SPARCS Annual Reconciliation process. This process compared each facility's monthly submission to a target based on the previous year's submission. (The target is calculated by taking 80% of the previous year's monthly average. February and December target is set using 75% of the monthly average). At the conclusion of the 2007 SPARCS Annual Reconciliation Process all inpatient facilities were reporting at or above their expected target of monthly discharges. In addition to the Annual Reconciliation review, the completeness of the SPARCS data is compared to the Institutional Cost Report (ICR) as supplied by the facilities to the Department of Health. As of 2/15/2011, the 2007 total inpatient discharges collected by SPARCS were 102% of the total discharges reported on the ICR. This indicates that the 2007 SPARCS inpatient reporting is 100% complete.

NOTE:  The 2007 data file used for the annual report reflects all inpatient discharges received as of 12/1/2010, the date of the report.
