One thought on “Methodology for Identifying Inpatient Admission Events

  1. Hi Guys,

    Thanks for this post. I work with healthcare administrative and counting any kind of clinical event is always a challenge. The information here is very helpful. I have a question regarding the same inpatient count generated by both Method 3 and 5. Does this mean that the entire inpatient event for a member is always recorded under the same claim/encounter id.

    Also, how are you calculating the Length Of Stay in each of these methods?
