Summary of Outpatient Output Update for 2003
The items below summarize the changes documented in the SPARCS Outpatient Output Data Dictionary for implementation in calendar year 2003.
Note: These changes announce new requirements for data collection in 2003. Most of the changes are to the SPARCS Outpatient (Ambulatory Surgery) data collection requirements. The intent of these changes is to align the current SPARCS outpatient data requirements with the anticipated Emergency Department Data Collection requirements. Based on a series of industry outreach meetings aligning the requirements of all outpatient reporting requirements to SPARCS will lessen the burden on New York State providers needing to satisfy state mandates.
Additional data elements collected for Ambulatory Surgery submissions effective for all discharges after 12/31/2002.
