Appendix TT-Abortion Record Editing

Provider information (i.e. Physician license numbers, all hospital information) are non-identifying but restricted fields, only released on records which do not contain any indications of abortion. On those so indicated records, all provider information would be blanked. Full release of provider information that is present on abortion indicated records requires specific DPRB approval, as in this case the provider information is considered to be an identifying field.

Provider information is released according to the following guidelines, which result in the setting of the Abortion Flag, Inpatient Data Element Number 139 and Outpatient Data Element Number 105.

  1. Provider information is releasable on all records where there is no indication of an induced abortion on the input record.

    Abortion Flag = N
