Tips for Coding Admission and Discharge Care Data Sets
Tips for Coding CMS Admission and Discharge Care Data Sets

“Tips For Coding” will provide information necessary for accurately scoring an admission and a discharge CARE Data Set within Vindicet©. It is designed specifically for the users of the of the Vindicet© LTACH Quality Reporting Program module. Users that follow these “TIPs” can be more confident that the scoring of each section and fields within those sections will greatly reduce or eliminate the chance of creating errors. When a completed assessment is sent to CMS it is placed through a series of checks which determines the presence of warning errors and fatal errors. Any single fatal error in an assessment will reject the record. A rejected record must be revised and re-submitted which is time consuming and inefficient. This booklet contains the instructions for scoring each field in the admission and discharge assessment and is formatted such that the user can simply refer to a single column for the most important information when scoring the field. In addition there is another column that Assessment Coordinators can reference when approving closed assessments.
