4.10 FIRST ED ACUITY ASSESSMENT PRACTITIONER ID

Definition

Identifier for practitioner who first assesses patient’s acuity in ED.

Uses

The identification of the practitioner who first assesses the patient’s acuity in the ED is needed for direct patient care, continuity of care, quality-of-care monitoring, health care administration, reimbursement, and research.

Discussion

In 1998, the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) plans to begin issuing a

National Provider Identifier (NPI) to all individual practitioners and organizations that provide health care. The NPI consists of two parts: a 7-position alphanumeric identifier and a 1-position numeric check digit. A locally assigned identifier may be entered until the NPI is issued. To protect confidentiality, disclosure of practitioner- or organization-specific data must be limited to authorized personnel.

Data Type (and Field Length)

XCN - extended composite ID number and name for persons (80).

Repetition

No.

Field Values

Component 1 is the practitioner identifier.
Component 11 is the check digit.
Component 12 is the code indicating the check digit scheme.
Component 13 is the code indicating the identifier type.
Components 2-10 and 14 are not used unless needed for local purposes.

Example:

Component 1 = 4672093
Component 11 = 5
Component 12 = IBM Check
Component 13 = NPI

Enter " " in Component 1 if the practitioner has no identifier, and enter Unknown if it is not known whether the practitioner has an identifier. Entries in all other components can be " " (none) or Unknown when appropriate, and entries in Components 2 - 10 and 14 need not be made when they are not necessary.
