Data Collected by PHC4

PHC4’s Information Services department processes billing claims data using a sophisticated series of validation rules before it is finalized and made available for further analysis and public release.

Notice Regarding ICD-10 Data Reporting (Effective 2015 Q4)

ICD-9 codes will only be accepted for claims prior to October 1, 2015. For claims beginning on October 1, 2015, only ICD-10 codes will be accepted. Dual coded claims (i.e. claims including both ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes) will not be accepted.

Please refer to the data reporting manuals for detailed reporting information.

Discharges for which Laboratory Data is to be Submitted

Hospitals are required to submit laboratory data for particular discharges as identified by a list of 35 Diseases, Procedures and Medical Conditions. Updates to the definitions of these categories are sometimes necessary since the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (i.e., CMS and NCHS/CDC) redefines MS-DRGs and ICD-10-CM/PCS codes periodically. It is recognized that laboratory data might not be available for all discharges on this list.

View the most current list, as of October 1, 2021, of the 35 diseases, procedures, and medical conditions for which laboratory data is to be submitted.
