8.16 ED DISCHARGE MEDICATION

PART OF THE ED DISCHARGE MEDICATION GROUP (8.13 - 8.22)

Definition

Medication that is prescribed, renewed, changed, or discontinued at ED discharge.

Uses

Data on planned management of the ED patient’s health problems are needed for communication and continuity of care. These data are useful for ED administration, quality-of-care monitoring and evaluation, and research.

Discussion

This data element includes medications that are available without a prescription. Established systems that can be used to classify and code specific medications include the National Drug Codes (NDC) maintained by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the World Health Organization Drug Record Codes. In addition, numerous local coding systems are in use.

Data Type (and Field Length)

CE - coded element (100).

Repetition

Yes; if more than one medication is prescribed, renewed, changed, or discontinued, this data element repeats with the ED Discharge Medication Group.

Field Values

Component 1 is the medication code.
Component 2 is the medication descriptor.
Component 3 is the coding system identifier.
Components 4 - 6 can be used for an alternate code, descriptor, and coding system identifier.

Example:

Component 1 = 0047-0402-30
Component 2 = Ampicillin 250 mg tab
Component 3 = NDC

Text data also can be entered without an accompanying code, as follows:

Component 1 = “ “
Component 2 = Penicillin

Data Standards or Guidelines

None.
