   CAUTION - Because the NHAMCS is a sample survey, the application of 
   weights to the sample data is REQUIRED to produce national estimates
   of outpatient and emergency department visits, as well as to accurately 
   assess the sampling error of statistics based on the survey data.  Please 
   refer to the appropriate documentation files (DESCRIPT, RSE) for informa-
   tion on how to apply the weights and to obtain relative standard errors of 
   national estimates.

     DESCRIPTION OF THE NATIONAL HOSPITAL AMBULATORY MEDICAL CARE SURVEY

   A. INTRODUCTION

    The National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NHAMCS) was
    initiated to learn more about the ambulatory care rendered in hospital
    emergency and outpatient departments in the United States.  Ambulatory
    medical care is the predominant method of providing health care services
    in the United States (reference 1).  Since 1973, data on ambulatory
    patient visits to physicians' offices have been collected through the
    National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS).  However, visits to
    hospital emergency and outpatient departments, which represent a
    significant portion of total ambulatory medical care, are not included in
    the NAMCS (reference 2).  Furthermore, hospital ambulatory patients are
    known to differ from office patients in their demographic characteristics
    and medical aspects (reference 3).  Therefore, the omission of hospital
    ambulatory care from the ambulatory medical care database leaves a
    significant gap in coverage and limits the utility of the current NAMCS
    data.  The NHAMCS fills this data gap.

    The NHAMCS was endorsed by the American Hospital Association, the
    Emergency Nurses Association, and the American College of Emergency
    Physicians.  A complete description of the NHAMCS is contained in the
    publication entitled, "Plan and Operation of the National Hospital
    Ambulatory Medical Care Survey" (reference 4).

    These micro-data files comprise the data collected by the NHAMCS in 1996.
    The NHAMCS was conducted by the Ambulatory Care Statistics Branch of the
    National Center for Health Statistics, Centers for Disease Control and
    Prevention.  The NHAMCS provides data from samples of patient records
    selected from the emergency departments (EDs) and outpatient departments
    (OPDs) of a national sample of hospitals.  The national estimates
    produced from these studies describe the utilization of hospital
    ambulatory medical care services in the United States.  In 1996, there
    were 21,902 Patient Record forms provided by 392 EDs and 29,806 Patient
    Record forms provided by 235 OPDs that participated in the survey.  Both
    data files, ED and OPD, are included in this product.  Additional
    information on data findings from the 1996 NHAMCS has been published
    (references 5 and 6).

    Please note the following important points concerning analysis of NHAMCS 
    data on this micro-data file:

     1) PATIENT VISIT WEIGHT
  
     Micro-data file users should be fully aware of the importance of the
     "patient visit weight" and how it must be used.  Information about the
     patient visit weight is presented on page 20.  If more information is
     needed, the staff of the Ambulatory Care Statistics Branch can be
     consulted by calling (301) 436-7132 during regular working hours.


     2) RELIABILITY OF ESTIMATES

     Users should also be aware of the reliability or unreliability of
     certain estimates, particularly the smaller estimates.  The National
     Center for Health Statistics, which conducts many health surveys,
     considers an estimate to be reliable if it has a relative error of 30
     percent or less (i.e., the standard error is no more than 30 percent of
     the estimate). Therefore, it is important to know the value of the
     lowest possible estimate in this survey that is considered reliable, so
     as not to present data in a journal article or paper that may be
     unreliable.  Most data file users can obtain an adequate working
     knowledge of relative standard errors from the information presented in
     the section, "Relative Standard Errors."  It should be noted that 
     estimates based on fewer than 30 sample records are also considered 
     unreliable, regardless of the magnitude of the relative standard error.
     If you would like more information, do not hesitate to consult the
     staff of the Ambulatory Care Statistics Branch.

   B. SAMPLE DESIGN

    The 1996 NHAMCS included a national probability sample of visits to the 
    emergency and outpatient departments of noninstitutional general and 
    short-stay hospitals, exclusive of Federal, military, and Veterans 
    Administration hospitals, located in the 50 states and the District of
    Columbia.  The NHAMCS was designed to provide estimates based on the 
    following priority of survey objectives: United States; region; 
    emergency and outpatient departments; and type of ownership.  The NHAMCS 
    used a four-stage probability design with samples of primary sampling
    units (PSUs), hospitals within PSUs, clinics within hospitals, and
    patient visits within clinics. Each stage of sampling is described below.

     1. Primary Sampling Units (PSUs)

     A PSU consists of a county, a group of counties, county equivalents
     (such as parishes and independent cities), towns, townships, minor
     civil divisions (for some PSUs in New England), or a metropolitan
     statistical area (MSA).  MSAs were defined by the U.S. Office of
     Management and Budget on the basis of the 1980 Census.  The first-stage
     sample consisted of 112 PSUs that comprised a probability subsample of
     the PSUs used in the 1985-94 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS). 
     The NHAMCS PSU sample included with certainty the 26 NHIS PSUs with the
     largest populations.  In addition, the NHAMCS sample included one-half
     of the next 26 largest PSUs, and one PSU from each of the 73 PSU strata
     formed from the remaining PSUs for the NHIS sample.

     The NHIS PSU sample was selected from approximately 1,900 geographically
     defined PSUs that covered the 50 States and the District of Columbia.  
     The 1,900 PSUs were stratified by socioeconomic and demographic
     variables and then selected with a probability proportional to their
     size.  Stratification was done within four geographical regions by MSA
     or non-MSA status.  A detailed description of the 1985-94 NHIS PSU sample
     design is available (reference 7).


     2. Hospitals

     The sampling frame for the 1996 NHAMCS was compiled from the hospitals 
     listed on the April 1991 SMG Hospital Market Data Base.  Hospitals with 
     an average length of stay for all patients of less than 30 days (short-
     stay) or hospitals whose specialty was general (medical or surgical) or
     children's general were eligible for the NHAMCS.  Excluded were Federal
     hospitals, hospital units of institutions, and hospitals with less than
     six beds staffed for patient use.  The SMG Hospital Market Data Base
     contained 6,249 hospitals that met these eligibility criteria.  Of the 
     eligible hospitals, 5,582 (89 percent) had emergency departments (EDs)
     and 5,654 (90 percent) had outpatient departments (OPDs).  Hospitals
     were defined to have an ED if the hospital file indicated the presence
     of such a unit or if the file indicated a non-zero number of visits to 
     such a unit.  A similar rule was used to define the presence of an OPD.
     Hospitals were classified into four groups: those with only an ED;
     those with an ED and an OPD; those with only an OPD; and those with 
     neither an ED nor an OPD.  Hospitals in the last class were considered
     as a separate stratum and a small sample (50 hospitals) was selected
     from this stratum to allow for estimation to the total universe of
     eligible hospitals and the opening and closing of EDs and OPDs in the
     sample hospitals.

     All hospitals in non-certainty PSUs with five or fewer hospitals were 
     selected with certainty.  There were 149 hospitals in 55 PSUs in this 
     category.  In non-certainty PSUs with more than five hospitals,
     hospitals were stratified by hospital class; type of ownership
     (not-for-profit, non-Federal government, and for-profit); and hospital 
     size.  Hospital size was measured by the combined volume of ED and OPD
     visits.  From the stratified hospital list, five hospitals were selected
     in each PSU with probability proportional to the number of ED and OPD
     patient visits.  A total of 161 hospitals was selected from this group.
     In the certainty PSUs, hospitals were stratified by region, hospital
     class, ownership, and size.  From the stratified hospital list, 240
     hospitals were selected based on probability proportional to size.  A
     sample of 50 hospitals was selected from the 427 hospitals that had
     neither an ED nor an OPD.

     The hospital selections were made so that each hospital would be chosen 
     only once to avoid multiple inclusion of very large hospitals.  A fixed
     panel of 600 hospitals was selected for the NHAMCS sample; 550 hospitals
     had an ED and/or an OPD and 50 hospitals had neither an ED nor an OPD.

     To preclude hospitals participating during the same time period each
     year, the sample of 600 hospitals was randomly divided into 16 subsets
     of approximately equal size.  Each of the subsets was assigned to 1 of
     the 16 4-week reporting periods beginning December 2, 1991, which
     continue to rotate across each survey year.  Therefore, the entire
     sample does not participate in a given year, and each hospital is
     inducted approximately once every 15 months.  The 1996 NHAMCS included
     data collected from December 25, 1995 through December 22, 1996, and
     consisted of a sample of 486 hospitals.  Of this number, 438 were in-
     scope or eligible to participate in the survey.  The hospital response
     rate for the NHAMCS during this period was 95 percent.  Table I displays
     response rates for the 486 hospitals selected in the sample.

     3. Outpatient Clinics and Emergency Service Areas

     Within each hospital, either all outpatient clinics and emergency
     service areas or a sample of such units were selected.  Clinics were in
     scope if ambulatory medical care was provided under the supervision of a
     physician and under the auspices of the hospital.  Clinics were required
     to be "organized" in the sense that services were offered at established
     locations and schedules.  Clinics where only ancillary services were
     provided or other settings in which physician services were not
     typically provided were out of scope.  In addition, freestanding clinics
     were out of scope since they are included in the NAMCS, and ambulatory
     surgery centers, whether in hospitals or freestanding, were out of scope
     since they were to be included in the National Survey of Ambulatory
     Surgery which was first fielded in 1994.  A list of in scope and out of
     scope clinics is provided in the section, "Definition of Certain Terms
     Used in the Survey."  The OPD clinic definition excluded the "hospital
     as landlord" arrangement in which the hospital only rented space to a
     physician group and was not otherwise involved in the delivery of
     services.  These physicians are considered office-based and are
     currently included in the NAMCS.  Emergency services provided under the
     "hospital as landlord" arrangement, however, were eligible for the study.
     An emergency department was in scope if it was staffed 24 hours a day. 
     If an in-scope emergency department had an emergency service area that
     was open less than 24 hours a day, then it was included under the
     emergency department.  If a hospital had an emergency department that
     was staffed less than 24 hours a day, then it was considered an
     outpatient clinic.

     Hospitals may define the term "separate clinic" differently, for
     example, by physical location within the hospital, by staff providing
     the services, by specialty or subspecialty, by schedules, or by
     patients' source of payment.  Because of these differences, "separate
     clinics" in the NHAMCS were defined as the smallest administrative units
     for which the hospital kept patient volume statistics.  

     During the visit by a field representative to induct a hospital into the
     survey, a list of all emergency service areas and outpatient clinics was
     obtained from the sample hospital.  Each outpatient department clinic's
     function, specialty, and expected number of visits during the assigned
     reporting period were also collected.  If there were five or fewer
     clinic sampling units, then all were included in the sample.  If a
     sample hospital had more than five clinic sampling units, then five
     units were randomly selected as follows: The individual clinics were
     listed first by six clinic categories: general medicine, surgery, 
     pediatrics, obstetrics/gynecology, substance abuse, and other.  Within 
     each category, clinics were listed in order of clinic size, from
     smallest to largest. Clinic size was defined as the expected number of 
     patient visits during the assigned 4-week reporting period.  Within 
     each clinic group, if a clinic expected fewer than 30 visits, it was
     grouped with one or more other clinics to form a sampling unit.  After
     grouping the clinic into sampling units, five of these sampling units 
     were selected based on probability proportional to the size of the 
     sampling unit.  If clinic sampling was required, the sampling was 
     completed by Census headquarters staff in Washington, DC.  The 1996 
     NHAMCS included 854 clinics from 235 outpatient departments.

     The emergency department was treated as a separate stratum, and all
     emergency service areas were selected with certainty.  In the rare 
     instance that a sample hospital had more than five emergency service
     areas, a sample of five emergency service areas was selected with 
     probability proportional to the expected number of visits to each
     emergency service area.  The 1996 NHAMCS included 450 emergency service
     areas from 392 emergency departments.

     4. Visits

     The basic sampling unit for the NHAMCS is the patient visit or encounter. 
     Only visits made in the United States by patients to EDs and OPDs of
     non-Federal, short-stay, or general hospitals were included in the 1996
     NHAMCS.  Within emergency service areas or outpatient department clinics,
     patient visits were systematically selected over a randomly assigned
     4-week reporting period.  A visit was defined as a direct, personal
     exchange between a patient and a physician, or a staff member acting
     under a physician's direction, for the purpose of seeking care and
     rendering health services.  Visits solely for administrative purposes,
     such as payment of a bill, and visits in which no medical care was
     provided, such as visits to deliver a specimen, were out of scope.

     The target numbers of Patient Record forms to be completed for EDs and 
     OPDs in each hospital were 50 and 150, respectively.  In clinics with 
     volumes higher than these desired figures, visits were sampled by a 
     systematic procedure which selected every nth visit after a random start.
     Visit sampling rates were determined from the expected number of 
     patients to be seen during the reporting period and the desired number
     of completed Patient Record forms.  During the 1996 NHAMCS, Patient
     Record forms were completed for 21,902 ED visits and 29,806 OPD visits.

     Specifications for visit sampling called for a maximum sampling rate of 
     1 in 20 visits or a maximum of 200 visits, whichever yielded the smaller
     sample size. 

   C. DATA COLLECTION PROCEDURES

    1. Field Training

    The Bureau of the Census was the data collection agent for the 1996
    NHAMCS.  Census Headquarters staff were responsible for overseeing the
    data collection process, training the Census Regional Office staff, and
    writing the field manual.  Regional Office staff were responsible for
    training the field representatives and monitoring hospital data
    collection activities.  Field representative training included
    approximately 4 hours of self-study and 1 1/2 to 2 days of classroom
    training.  Field representatives inducted the hospitals and trained the
    hospital staff on visit sampling and completion of the Patient Record
    forms.


    2. Hospital Induction

    Approximately three months prior to the hospital's assigned reporting
    period, NCHS sent a personally signed introductory letter from the
    Director of NCHS to the hospital administrator or chief executive officer
    of each sampled hospital.  The names of the hospital officials were 
    obtained from the American Hospital Association (AHA) Guide to Health
    Care.  In addition to the introductory letter, NCHS also enclosed
    endorsement letters from the Emergency Nurses Association, the American
    Hospital Association, and the American College of Emergency Physicians to
    emphasize the importance of the study to the medical community.

    Approximately one week after the mailing of the introductory letter, the
    Census field representative called the hospital administrator to arrange
    for an appointment to further explain the study and to verify hospital
    eligibility for the survey.  Earlier studies indicated that the
    three-month lead time was necessary to obtain a meeting with the
    administrator, gain hospital approval, collect the required information
    about the hospital's ambulatory care services, develop the sampling plan,
    and train participating hospital staff (references 8 and 9).

    3. Outpatient Clinic and Emergency Service Area Induction

    After the initial visit and the development of the sampling plan, the
    field representative contacted the hospital coordinator to arrange for
    induction of the sample emergency service areas and outpatient clinics
    and for instruction of the hospital staff.  At these visits, the field
    representative described the purpose and use of the survey data,
    explained the data collection process, including the visit sampling
    procedures, and presented the Patient Record forms.

    4. Data Collection

    The actual visit sampling and data collection for the NHAMCS was
    primarily the responsibility of hospital staff.  This procedure was
    chosen for several reasons.  First, the lack of a standard form or record
    coversheet in hospitals and the individuality of the hospital record 
    keeping made field representative training difficult.  Second, for
    confidentiality reasons, numerous hospitals did not want the field
    representatives to review patient logs or see actual medical records. 
    Third, hospital staffs were better qualified to abstract data since they
    were familiar with the medical terms and coding, knew the record keeping
    systems, and could complete the Patient Record forms at or near the time
    of the visit when the information was the most complete and easiest to
    retrieve.

    Hospital staff responsible for completing the Patient Record forms were
    instructed in how to complete each item by the field representatives. 
    Separate instruction booklets for emergency service areas and outpatient
    department clinics were prepared and provided to guide hospital staff in
    this task.  These booklets provided an overview of the survey, sampling
    instructions, instructions for completing the Patient Record forms, and
    definitions.

    A brief, one page Patient Record form consisting of two sections was
    completed for each sample visit.  To account for the differences in
    emergency and outpatient care, different Patient Record forms were
    developed for each of these settings.  The top section of each Patient
    Record form, which contains the patient's name and record number, was
    separated from the bottom section by a perforation running across the
    page.  The top section remained attached to the bottom until the entire
    Patient Record form was completed.  To ensure confidentiality, before
    collecting the completed Patient Record forms, the top section was 
    detached and given to the hospital staff.  The field representatives
    instructed hospital staff to keep this portion for a period of four
    weeks, in case it was necessary to retrieve missing information or
    clarify information that had been recorded.

    The Patient Record forms were patterned after the NAMCS and can be
    completed in 2-3 minutes.  The OPD Patient Record form most closely
    resembles the NAMCS Patient Record form, while the ED Patient Record form
    has been designed to reflect the type of care provided in that setting.
    Terms and definitions relating to the Patient Record forms are included
    in the sections, "Patient Record Forms - Instructions and Definitions"
    and "Definition of Certain Terms Used in the Survey." 

   D. FIELD QUALITY CONTROL

    The field representative visited the sampled emergency service areas and
    clinics each week during the data collection period and maintained
    telephone contact with the hospital staff involved in the data collection
    effort.  The field representative reviewed the log or other records used
    for visit sampling to determine if any cases were missing and also edited
    completed forms for missing data.  Attempts were made to retrieve both
    missing cases and missing data on specific cases, either by consulting
    with the appropriate hospital staff or by reviewing the pertinent medical
    records.  On the final visit, the field representative collected the
    remaining Patient Record forms and obtained or verified the total count
    of visits occurring during the reporting period by reviewing the log used
    for sample selection or by obtaining counts directly from hospital staff.
    Because this information was critical to the estimation process,
    extensive effort was made to ensure the accuracy of this number.

    At the end of the hospital's reporting period the field representative
    sent the administrator a personalized "Thank You" letter.

   E. CONFIDENTIALITY

    Assurance of confidentiality was provided to all hospitals according to
    Section 308 (d) of the Public Health Service Act (42 USC 242m).  Strict
    procedures were utilized to prevent disclosure of NHAMCS data.  All
    information which could identify the hospital or its facilities was
    confidential and was seen only by persons engaged in the NHAMCS, and was
    not disclosed or released to others for any other purpose.  Names or
    other identifying information for individual patients were not removed
    from the hospitals or individual facilities.


   F. DATA PROCESSING

    1. Edits

     In addition to follow-ups for missing and inconsistent data made by the
     field staff, numerous clerical edits were performed on data received for
     central data processing.  Detailed editing instructions were provided to
     manually review the patient records and to reclassify or recode "other"
     entries. Computer edits for code ranges and inconsistencies were also
     performed.

    2. Quality control

     All medical and drug coding and keying operations were subject to
     quality control procedures.  Quality control for the medical and drug
     coding operation, as well as straight-key items, involved a two-way
     10-percent independent verification procedure.  As an additional quality
     control, all Patient Record forms with differences between coders or
     with illegible entries for the reason for visit, diagnostic and
     therapeutic procedures, diagnosis, E-code (cause of injury), and
     medication items were reviewed and adjudicated at NCHS. The average
     keying error rate for nonmedical items was less than 0.1 percent.  For
     items which required medical coding, discrepancy rates averaged less
     than 3 percent.

    3. Imputations

     Item nonresponse was 5 percent or less for all data items with the
     following exceptions: race (9.5 percent, OPD, 7.4 percent ED), ethnicity
     (16.2 percent OPD, 16.5 percent ED), urgency (6.4 percent ED) and if
     'Yes' for condition in item 11a (6.0 percent OPD).  Incomplete data
     items were imputed using a "hot deck" procedure by assigning a value
     from a randomly selected Patient Record form with similar
     characteristics.  For item 15 (urgency) on the ED Patient Record form,
     the sorting used was ED size and geographic region by the 3-digit
     ICD-9-CM code for principal diagnosis.  For other ED variables (i.e.,
     birth year, race, sex, ethnicity, disposition and providers seen)
     the sort used was region and ED size by urgency by the 3-digit ICD-9-CM 
     code for principal diagnosis.  ED size was determined from the entry on 
     the NHAMCS-101/U (Ambulatory Unit Record) completed by the Census field
     representative for each emergency service area and outpatient clinic 
     during induction.

     For the OPD, imputation procedures were performed for the following
     variables: visit date, birth year, sex, race, ethnicity, providers seen,
     patient seen before, referral, and disposition.  The sorting used was 
     region and OPD size by clinic type by the 3-digit ICD-9-CM code for 
     principal diagnosis.  OPD size was determined from the entry on the
     NHAMCS-101/U, and clinic type used the following categories: general 
     medicine, surgery, pediatrics, obstetrics/gynecology, and other.  ED 
     and OPD records with imputed variables were flagged on the data file.

   G. MEDICAL CODING 

    The Patient Record form contains several medical items requiring three
    separate coding systems.  The three coding systems are described briefly
    below.  Quality control for the NHAMCS medical and drug coding operations
    involved a 10 percent independent coding and verification procedure.  A
    dependent verification procedure was used to review and adjudicate all
    records with coding discrepancies.  Definitions of the medical items can
    be found in the section, "Patient Record Forms - Instructions and
    Definitions."

     1. Patient's Complaint(s), Symptoms(s) or Other Reason(s) for this
     Visit: Information collected in item 9 of the OPD and item 10 of the ED
     Patient Record form was coded according to A Reason for Visit
     Classification for Ambulatory Care (RVC) (reference 10).  The updated
     classification is available (reference 11), and the list of codes is 
     shown in the section, "Reason for Visit Classification."  The classifi-
     cation was updated to incorporate several new codes as well as changes 
     to existing codes.  The system continues to utilize a modular structure.  
     The digits 1 through 8 precede the 3-digit RVC codes to identify the 
     various modules as follows:
            
      Prefix         Module

      "1" =       Symptom module
      "2" =       Disease module
      "3" =       Diagnostic, screening, and preventive module
      "4" =       Treatment module
      "5" =       Injuries and adverse effects module
      "6" =       Test results module
      "7" =       Administrative module
      "8" =       Uncodable entries
      "9" =       Special code = blank

      Up to three reasons for visit were coded from item 9 on the OPD PRF and
      item 10 on the ED PRF in sequence; coding instructions for this item
      are contained in the "Reason for Visit Classification and Coding Manual"
      (reference 11).

     2. Cause of Injury: Up to three causes of injury were coded from
     responses to item 11a on the ED PRF and item 10a on the OPD PRF.  Causes
     of injury were coded using the Supplementary Classification of External
     Causes of Injury and Poisoning (E-codes), International Classification
     of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) (reference
     12).  In the classification, E-codes range from E800-E999, and many, but
     not all, codes have an additional fourth digit to provide greater
     specificity.  For the NHAMCS public use file, the 'E' has been dropped.
     There is an implied decimal between the third and fourth digits; 
     inapplicable fourth digits have a dash inserted.  

       Examples:  895- = E895 = Accident caused by controlled fire in private
                                dwelling
                  9056 = E905.6 = Venomous marine animals and plants as the
                                  cause of poisoning and toxic reactions


     3. Physician's Diagnoses: Diagnostic information in item 11 of the OPD
     Patient Record form and item 12 of the ED PRF was coded according to the
     International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical 
     Modification (ICD-9-CM) (reference 12).

     Prior to 1995, the diagnosis codes contained prefixes and zerofills
     to facilitate analysis using ACSB software systems.  Since 1995, the
     ICD-9-CM codes have not been prefixed or zerofilled on the public use
     files.  For example, 38100 = 381.00 = Acute nonsuppurative otitis media,
     unspecified.  There is an implied decimal between the third and fourth
     digits.  For inapplicable fourth or fifth digits, a dash has been
     inserted.  For example, 4011- = 401.1 = Essential hypertension, benign. 

     Supplementary classification codes are no longer prefixed or zerofilled.
     For example, V700 = V70.0 = Routine general medical examination at a
     health care facility.

     In addition to the diagnostic codes from the ICD-9-CM the following
     unique codes in the diagnostic fields were developed by NHAMCS staff:

       V9900 = noncodable diagnosis, insufficient information for coding,
               illegible diagnosis 
       V9910 = left before being seen, patient walked out, not seen by doctor,
               left against medical advice
       V9920 = transferred to another facility, sent to see specialist
       V9970 = entry of "none," "no diagnosis," "no disease," "healthy"
       00000 = blank 

     A maximum of three diagnoses were coded in sequence.  Coding
     instructions concerning diagnoses are contained in the NHAMCS Coding
     Requirements Manual (reference 13).  It is important to note that
     diagnosis fields for 1996 must be read as character data rather than
     numeric data.

     4. Ambulatory Surgical Procedures, Diagnostic/Screening Services, and
     Procedures: Data from item 13 (OPD only, ambulatory surgical procedures)
     as well as any open-ended responses to items 14 on the OPD and 16 on the
     ED (diagnostic/screening services), and 17 (ED only, procedures) of the
     Patient Record form were coded according to the International 
     Classification of Diseases (ICD-9-CM) using the procedure codes in
     Volume III.  For the OPD Patient Record form, up to 2 surgical
     procedures and up to 4 open-ended responses ("Other - specify") could be
     coded for each OPD visit.  For the ED Patient Record form, one
     open-ended response could be coded for the diagnostic/screening item and
     up to 2 open-ended responses could be coded for the procedures item. 
     Codes have an implied decimal between the second and third position and
     do not use prefixes or zerofills.  Codes without an applicable 4th digit
     have a dash inserted and must therefore be read as character data.

     5. Medications/Injections: The NHAMCS drug data collected in item 16
     (OPD) and item 18 (ED) have been classified and coded according to a
     unique classification scheme developed at NCHS (reference 14).  A list
     of drug codes is included in the sections, "Drug Entry Codes and Names"
     and "Generic Codes and Names."  The 1996 Patient Record forms allow 
     for the recording of up to six drugs.  In addition to drug
     codes by entry name (the entry made on the Patient Record form by the
     hospital staff), this file contains the following drug information:

      a. Generic name code: A unique, 5-digit code assigned to each official
      generic name assigned to every drug entity by the United States
      Pharmacopeia or other responsible authority.

      b. Prescription status code: A code designed to identify the legal
      status (prescription or nonprescription) of the drug entry.

      c. Controlled substance status code: A code used to denote the degree
      of potential abuse and federal control of a drug entry.

      d. Composition status code: A code used to distinguish between single-
      ingredient and combination drugs.
        
      Note: If the user is searching for single ingredient (or single
            entity) drugs, then he or she may utilize the composition status
            code = "1" in conjunction with the generic name code.  A
            single ingredient drug will have one generic code in the
            generic name code field, and blanks in the five ingredient
            codes fields.  If the user is searching for combination drugs,
            then he or she may utilize composition status code  = "2" in
            conjunction with the ingredient codes fields.  Combination
            drugs are also identified by the codes 51380 or 51381 (see below)
            in the generic name code field.  These codes indicate that the
            drug is a combination product and the ingredients are listed as
            generic codes in the ingredient codes fields.  Therefore, the
            user may search for combination products using either the generic
            name code or the combination status code.


      e. Ingredient codes: Codes used to identify the active generic
      ingredients of combination drugs.  A maximum of 5 ingredients can be
      identified for each combination drug.

      f. Drug class code: A 4-digit code used to identify the primary class
      to which the drug entry may belong.  These are based on the standard
      drug classifications used in the National Drug Code Directory, 1995
      edition (reference 15).  The first two digits represent the major drug
      classes and can be used alone or in conjunction with the additional
      digits for greater specificity within the major classes.  A listing of
      the drug classes is shown in the section, "List of National Drug
      Code Directory Drug Classes."

      The medical classification system of drugs by entry name 
      utilizes a five-digit coding scheme which is updated regularly to
      include new products.  It includes the following special codes:

        90000 = blank 
        99980 = unknown entry, other
        99999 = illegible entry

      The classification of drugs by generic name also utilizes a
      five-digit coding scheme, with the following special codes:

        50000 = generic name undetermined
        51380 = combination product (multi-vitamin/multi-mineral)
        51381 = fixed combination

      For users who are interested in analyzing drug data only (apart from
      visit data), you will need to isolate those records with drugs, or drug
      mentions, and create a separate datafile of drug mentions.  Each
      Patient Record form can have up to six drug mentions recorded,
      so whatever file is created will need to include all of them.
      This documentation contains marginal data on drug mentions and
      approximate relative standard errors.  Should the data user need
      additional assistance in analyzing data on drug mentions the staff of
      the Ambulatory Care Statistics Branch is available by calling (301)
      436-7132.

   H. ESTIMATION PROCEDURES

    The probability sample design of the NHAMCS allowed the sample data to be
    weighted to produce national estimates for the U.S.  Unweighted data are
    not used for analysis as unweighted data ignore the disproportionate
    sampling used in the NHAMCS.  Statistics from the NHAMCS were derived by
    a multistage estimation procedure that produces essentially unbiased 
    national estimates.  Separate national estimates were produced for visits
    to hospital emergency and outpatient departments.  The weight included
    three basic components: (1) inflation by reciprocals of the
    probabilities of selection, (2) adjustment for nonresponse, and (3) ratio
    adjustment to fixed totals.  Each component is briefly described below.


     1. Inflation by reciprocals of probabilities of selection  

     Because the survey utilized a four-stage sample design, four
     probabilities of selection existed: (A) the probability of selecting the
     PSU; (B) the probability of selecting the hospital within the PSU; (C)
     the probability of selecting the emergency service area or outpatient
     clinic within the hospital; and (D) the probability of selecting the
     visit within the particular emergency service area or clinic.  The
     overall probability of including a hospital in the sample was the
     product of the probability of the PSU being selected multiplied by the
     probability of the hospital being selected.  The probability of
     selecting the hospital was 1.0 for hospitals in noncertainty PSUs with
     fewer than five hospitals and was the hospital size divided by a
     sampling interval for all other hospitals.  The sampling intervals for
     PSUs with more than five hospitals was the cumulative sum of the
     hospital sizes (the total of ED and OPD visits) in each PSU divided by
     five.  The sampling interval for the certainty PSUs was the cumulative
     sum of all hospitals in these PSUs divided by 240.

     The probability of selecting a clinic within a hospital was 1.0 for
     clinics in hospitals with five or fewer clinics and was the clinic size
     divided by the sampling interval for clinics in hospitals with more than
     five clinics.  The sampling interval was defined to be the cumulative
     sum of sizes for the clinics (the expected number of visits during the
     reporting period) in the hospital divided by five.

     The probability of selecting a visit was defined as the actual number of
     visits during the hospital's assigned reporting period divided by the
     number of Patient Record forms completed.  The survey included 13
     four-week reporting periods which were inflated to derive annual
     estimates.

     2. Adjustment for nonresponse

     Estimates from NHAMCS data were adjusted to account for sample units
     that were in scope, but did not participate in the study.  These
     adjustments were calculated to minimize the impact of nonresponse on
     final estimates by imputing to nonresponding units the characteristics 
     of similar responding units.  As nonresponse may occur at each stage of
     sampling, several adjustments were required.  For these adjustments,
     hospitals were judged similar if they had the same ownership and were in
     the same PSU or region and MSA status.  Clinics were judged similar if 
     they were of the same clinic type and were in the same PSU.  Visits were
     judged similar if they occurred in the same clinic.


     3. Ratio Adjustment

     NHAMCS estimates were adjusted within 12 strata defined by region and
     ownership.  Separate postratio adjustments were made for emergency and
     outpatient department estimates.  For ED estimates, the ratio adjustment
     for each stratum was a multiplication factor which had as its numerator
     the number of ED visits in the universe in the stratum and as its 
     denominator the estimated number of ED visits in that stratum.  For OPD
     estimates, the ratio adjustment for each stratum was a multiplication
     factor which had as its numerator the number of hospitals with an OPD in
     the universe in the stratum and as its denominator the estimated number
     of hospitals with OPDs in that stratum.  The data for the numerator and
     denominator of both adjustments were based on figures from the SMG
     Hospital Market Data Base.

   I. PATIENT VISIT WEIGHT

     The "patient visit weight" is a vital component in the process of
     producing national estimates from sample data and its use should be
     clearly understood by all data file users.  The statistics contained on
     the data file reflect only a sample of patient visits-- not a complete
     count of all the visits that occurred in the United States.  Each record
     on the ED file represents one visit in the sample of 21,902 visits, and
     each record on the OPD file represents one visit in the sample of 29,806
     visits.  In order to obtain national estimates from the two samples,
     each record is assigned an inflation factor called the "patient visit
     weight."

     By aggregating the "patient visit weights" on the 21,902 ED sample
     records for 1996 the user can obtain the total of 90,346,742 estimated
     visits made by all patients to EDs in the United States.  Also, by
     aggregating the "patient visit weights" on the 29,806 OPD sample records
     for 1996 the user can obtain the total of 67,185,657 estimated visits
     made by all patients to OPDs in the United States.

     The marginal tables contain data on numbers of records for selected
     variables as well as the corresponding national estimated number of
     visits and drug mentions obtained by aggregating the "patient visit
     weights" on those records. 

   J. HOSPITAL CODE and PATIENT CODE                

    The purpose of these codes is to allow for greater analytical depth by
    permitting the user to link individual Patient Record forms on the public
    use file with individual hospitals.  This linkage will enable users to
    conduct more comprehensive analysis without violating the confidentiality
    of patients or hospitals.  Hospital codes are randomly assigned each year
    and may be different on the OPD and ED files.

    To uniquely identify a record, both the hospital code and the patient
    code must be used.  Patient codes are merely a sequential numbering of
    the visits recorded by the hospital (from '001' to '165' for the ED and
    '0001' to '0298' for the OPD) and alone will not uniquely identify visit
    records.  In order to do so, both the unique 3-digit hospital code and
    the 3-digit (for ED) or 4-digit (for OPD) patient code must be used.  

   K. CLINIC TYPE CODE (For OPDs only)

    The purpose of this code is similar to that of the hospital code.  It
    allows the user to identify all records from a particular type of
    outpatient clinic.

   L. POPULATION FIGURES

    The base population used in computing annual visit rates is presented in
    Table II.  These figures are based on provisional estimates of the
    civilian noninstitutionalized population as of July 1, 1996, provided by

 SOURCE:  Estimates of age, sex, and race are based on U.S. Bureau of 
 the Census monthly postcensal estimates of the civilian noninstitutionalized
 population of the United States as of July 1, 1996.  
 Figures are consistent with an unpublished hard-copy national 
 population estimates release package PPL-57 (U.S. Population Estimates 
 by Age, Sex, Race and Hispanic Origin: 1990-1996) and have been adjusted for
 net underenumeration using the 1990 National Population Adjustment Matrix.

 Regional estimates were provided by the Division of Health Interview
 Statistics (DHIS), National Center for Health Statistics, and are based on
 U.S. Bureau of the Census estimates of the civilian noninstitutionalized
 population as of July 1, 1996.  DHIS estimates are provisional at this time
 and differ slightly from monthly postcensal estimates due to differences in 
 the adjustment process.

 25             10          156-165    DISPOSITION OF THIS VISIT

 ***NOTE:  For this item, hospital staff were asked to check all applicable 
 categories, with the result that multiple responses could be coded per visit.  
 For data users who wish to determine the number of visits resulting in 
 hospital admission, it is necessary to consider the categories, 
 "Admit to hospital" as well as "Admit to ICU/CCU."  Because some
 respondents may have checked both responses on the same record, it is 
 recommended that an "or" statement be used to select the records 
 (e.g., select record if disposition is admit to hospital or admit to
 ICU/CCU), rather than simply adding the results for both categories, which 
 could result in doublecounting.***

RELATIVE STANDARD ERRORS

  The standard error is primarily a measure of the sampling variability 
  that occurs by chance because only a sample is surveyed, rather 
  than the entire universe.  The relative standard error (RSE) of an 
  estimate is obtained by dividing the standard error of the estimate 
  by the estimate itself and is expressed as a percentage of the estimate.

* The lowest reliable estimate.

    Example of use of table:  An aggregate estimate of 1 million patient 
    visits to OPDs has a relative standard error of 13.0%, or a standard 
    error of 130,000 patient visits (13.0 percent of 1 million).

    Estimates based on fewer than 30 sample records are considered to be 
    unreliable regardless of the magnitude of the relative standard error.


  For aggregate estimates, approximate relative standard errors may be 
  calculated using the following general formula, where "x" is the 
  aggregate of patient visits or drug mentions in thousands, 
  and coefficients "A" and "B" are obtained from table IV:

       To obtain the RSE(x), divide B by x and add result to A, 
       take square root of that result and multiply by 100.

  For estimates of percentages, approximate relative standard errors may be 
  calculated using the following general formula, where "p" is the percent
  of visits or drug mentions, "x" is the denominator of the percent in 
  thousands, and coefficient "B" is obtained from table IV:

       To obtain the RSE(p), multiply B by (1 - p),
       divide the result by the product of p * x,
       take square root of that result and multiply by 100.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

  For estimates of visit rates, in which the numerator is the number of 
  visits for a particular characteristic, and the denominator is the total 
  United States population, the relative standard error is equivalent to the 
  relative standard error of the numerator, as shown in the previous
  paragraph on aggregate estimates.



PATIENT RECORD FORMS - INSTRUCTIONS AND DEFINITIONS

   Note: unless otherwise specified, item numbers and definitions apply to
   both the Emergency Department (ED) Patient Record form and the 
   Outpatient Department (OPD) Patient Record form.


   Item 1 - DATE OF VISIT

    Record the month, day, and year of this visit in numerical figures.  
    For example, January 15, 1996 should be entered as 1/15/96.


   Item 2 (OPD) Item 4 (ED) - ZIP CODE

    Record the patient's five-digit zip code here.


   Item 2 (ED) - TIME OF VISIT

    The patient's time of arrival in the emergency department should
    be recorded here in hours and minutes, and the appropriate box should be
    checked to indicate whether the time is A.M. or P.M.  Mark the military
    time box if the time of arrival was recorded in military time.  In the
    event that the patient's exact time of visit is not known, estimate it as
    closely as possible.


   Item 3 - DATE OF BIRTH

    Record the month, day, and year of the patient's birth in numerical
    figures (in the same fashion as DATE OF VISIT above).  In the rare event 
    the date of birth is unknown, estimate the year of birth as closely as
    possible.  For patients 100 years and older, record year as 18_ _.


   Item 4 (OPD), Item 6 (ED) - SEX

    Place an "X" in the appropriate category.
         
   Item 5 - RACE

    Record based on observation or the hospital's usual practice or knowledge
    of this information.  You are not expected to ask the patient for this
    information.

    If the patient's race is not known or not obvious, mark the box which
    in your judgment is most appropriate.  The definition of the categories
    is listed below.


      RACE                          DEFINITION

     1 White             A person having origins in any of the original
                         peoples of Europe, North Africa, or the Middle East.

     2 Black             A person having origins in any of the black racial
                         groups of Africa.

     3 Asian/            A person having origins in any of the original
       Pacific           peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, the Indian
       Islander          subcontinent, or the Pacific Islands.  This area 
                         includes, for example, China, India, Japan, Korea,
                         the Philippine Islands, and Samoa.

     4 American          A person having origins in any of the original
       Indian/           peoples of North America, and who maintains cultural
       Eskimo/           identification through tribal affiliation or
       Aleut             community recognition.
  

   Item 6 (OPD), Item 7 (ED)- ETHNICITY

    Mark the appropriate category according to your hospital's usual
    practices.  You are not expected to ask the patient for this information.
 
    If the patient's ethnicity is not known or not obvious, mark the box
    which in your judgment is most appropriate.  The definition of the
    categories is listed below.

      ETHNICITY                     DEFINITION

     1 Hispanic          A person of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central
       Origin            or South American or other Spanish culture or
                         origin, regardless of race.  

     2 Non-Hispanic      All other persons.
 

   Item 7 (OPD), Item 8 (ED) - DOES PATIENT SMOKE CIGARETTES?

    If the patient currently smokes, mark the "Yes" box, regardless of how
    many cigarettes the patient smokes or how long the patient has been
    smoking. If the patient does not smoke, has successfully stopped smoking,
    or only smokes cigars or pipes, the "No" box should be marked.  The
    "unknown" box is marked in the event that it is not known for sure
    whether or not the patient smokes cigarettes.


   Item 8 (OPD), Item 9 (ED) - EXPECTED SOURCE(S) OF PAYMENT

    This item is entitled "Expected Source(s) of Payment" because it is
    often unknown at the time of the visit exactly who will end up paying
    for the services provided at the visit.  Therefore the respondent should
    provide the answer based on the best information available when the PRF
    is completed.

    Check a) Type of payment and b) Expected source(s) of insurance that
    will pay for this visit.  

    For part a, only one type of payment may be checked:

          TYPE OF PAYMENT                    DEFINITION

     1  Preferred provider option    Charges included under the Preferred
                                     Provider Organizations (PPOs).

     2  Insured, fee-for-service     Charges to be paid by a third party
                                     insurer either directly to the physician
                                     or reimbursed to the patient or
                                     patient's family.

     3  HMO/other prepaid            Charges included under a prepayment
                                     plan.  Include Health Maintenance
                                     Organizations (HMOs), Independent
                                     Practice Associations (IPAs).  If the
                                     prepayment plan is a Preferred Provider
                                     Organization (PPO) check the "Preferred
                                     Provider Option" box, not "HMO/other
                                     prepaid."

     4  Self-pay                     Charges to be paid by the patient or
                                     patient's family which will not be
                                     reimbursed by a third party.

                                     Self-pay is perhaps a poor choice of
                                     wording since we really have no interest
                                     in whether the patient actually pays the
                                     bill.  This category is intended to 
                                     include visits for which the patient is 
                                     expected to be ultimately responsible
                                     for most of the bill.

     5  No charge                    Visits for which no fee is charged.  Do
                                     not include visits paid for as part of a
                                     total care package, e.g., prepaid plan
                                     visits, post-operative visits included
                                     in a surgical fee, and pregnancy visits
                                     included in a flat fee charged for the
                                     entire pregnancy.  Mark the box, or
                                     boxes, that indicate how the services
                                     were originally paid.

     6  Other                        Any other type of payment not covered
                                     in above categories.


    COMPLETE PART B ONLY IF BOX 1, 2, OR 3 WAS CHECKED IN PART A.

    Check all that apply for part b) Expected source(s) of insurance.

        SOURCE OF INSURANCE                  DEFINITION

                                    in above categories such as CHAMPUS and
                                    private charitable organizations.

    If the type of insurance is not known, check the "Unknown" box.
 


   Item 9 (OPD), Item 10 (ED) - PATIENT'S COMPLAINT(S), SYMPTOM(S) OR OTHER
   REASON(S) FOR THIS VISIT (Use patient's own words.)
            
    This is one of the most important items on the form.  No similar national
    data on outpatient or emergency department visits are available anywhere
    and there is a tremendous interest in the findings.  Please take the time
    to be sure you understand what is wanted - most importantly the following
    three points:


     (1)  Record the patient's principal complaint, symptom or other reason
     for this visit as stated by the patient.  The physician may recognize
     right away, or may find out after examination, that the real problem is
     something entirely different, but here we are interested in how the
     patient defines the reason for visit.

     (2)  The item refers to the patient's complaint, symptom or other reason
     for this visit.  Conceivably, the patient may be undergoing a course of
     treatment for a serious illness, but if his/her most important reason
     for this visit is a sore throat or a headache, that is the information
     we want.

     (3)  The complaint or symptom should be described in the patient's own
     words.  We will obtain the diagnosis in Item 11 (OPD) and Item 12 (ED).
     Here we want the patient's description of the problem: "pain in the
     chest," "cramps after eating," or whatever.

    Space has been allocated for both the "most important" and two "other"
    complaints, symptoms, and reasons mentioned by the patient.  Enter the
    most important in (a) and the other or others in (b) and (c).  By "most
    important" we mean the problem or symptom which in the physician's
    judgment was most responsible for the patient making this visit.  Since
    we are interested only in the patient's most important   
    complaint(s)/symptom(s)/reason(s), it will seldom be necessary to record
    more than three.

    There will, of course, be visits by patients for reasons other than some
    complaint or symptom.  Examples might be: annual checkup, routine
    prenatal or postnatal care.  In such cases you should simply enter the
    reason for this visit.  Remember that if the reason for the patient's
    visit was to pay a bill or ask the physician to fill out an insurance
    form or drop off a specimen, the patient is not recorded on the log and
    Patient Record Form should be completed.


   Item 10 (OPD), Item 11 (ED) - IS THIS VISIT INJURY RELATED?

    In addition to the usual types of injury-related visits for falls,
    lacerations, burns, etc., other injury-related visits include, but are
    not limited to: visits for unintentional poisoning by drugs, medicinal
    substances, biologicals, other solid and liquid substances, gases, and
    vapors; adverse reaction to drugs, medicinal substances, and
    biologicals; complications of surgical and medical procedures; and
    insect and animal bites.


    If this visit is injury related, complete parts a, b, and c as follows:

          a)  Describe in detail the events or circumstances that preceded
              the injury.  Examples: overdose of cocaine, fell off monkey
              bars, unrestrained driver in motor vehicle involving collision
              with another vehicle.

          b)  Indicate where the injury occurred.  If the place of injury is
              not represented by one of the categories, check the "Other"
              box and record the place of injury in the space provided.

          c)  Indicate whether the injury is work related.

     (ED) d)  Indicate whether a firearm produced the injury.  

     (ED) e)  Indicate whether the injury is violence related.  If yes,
              indicate whether the injury was the result of
              suicide/suicide attempt or interpersonal violence/assault.
              If the injury was the result of interpersonal violence/assault,
              indicate the relationship of the person who caused the injury
              by marking the appropriate category.


   Item 11 (OPD), Item 12 (ED) - PHYSICIAN'S DIAGNOSES

    a.  Principal diagnosis/ 
        problem associated with 
        this item:

    b.  Other:

    c.  Other:

    It is important that the distinction between these two items is   
    understood.   

    Item 11a (OPD) and Item 12a (ED) refer to the diagnosis associated with
    the entry in item 9a (OPD) and item 10a (ED).  How did the physician
    diagnose the most important complaint or symptom for the patient during
    this visit?  The diagnosis may be tentative or definitive; it should
    represe the physician's best judgment at this time, expressed in standard
    medical terminology including "problem" terms.

    If no complaint or symptom is given in item 9a (OPD) or item 10a (ED)
    (e.g., annual check-up, routine prenatal care), and no diagnosis is made,
    enter "none." 

    If a patient appears for postoperative care (follow-up visit after
    surgery), record the postoperative diagnosis as well as any other
    diagnosis associated with item 9a (OPD) or item 10a (ED).  Indicate the
    postoperative diagnosis with the letters (P.O.).


    In contrast to most items on the form, Items 11b-c (OPD) and 12b-c (ED)
    do not refer solely to this particular visit.  List here the diagnosis
    of other conditions known to exist for this patient at this time,
    regardless of their relationship to the present problem.

     Example 1
               
     a.  Principal diagnosis/                 -the condition which brought
         problem associated                    the patient to the clinic
         with item 9a: possible appendicitis

     b.  Other: diabetes mellitus             -represent other conditions 
     c.  Other: obesity                        diagnosed either during this 
                                               visit or in the past, and
                                               which still exist in
                                               the patient

     Example 2

     a.  Principal diagnosis/                 -the condition which brought
         problem associated                    the patient to the clinic
         with item 9a: acute lumbosacral sprain

     b.  Other: hypertension, benign          -represent other conditions 
     c.  Other: chronic alcoholism             diagnosed either during this 
                                               visit or in the past, and
                                               which still exist in
                                               the patient

    In each of the preceding examples, diagnosis a) is the condition which
    brought the patient to the hospital on this visit, while b) and c)
    represent other conditions which have been diagnosed by the physician
    either on this visit or in the past, and which still exist in the patient.

   Item 15 - URGENCY OF THIS VISIT (ED)

    Check the box which best indicates this visit:

     URGENT/EMERGENT - Patient requires immediate attention for acute illness
     or injury that threatens life or function.  Delay would be harmful to
     the patient.

     NON-URGENT - Patient does not require attention immediately or within a
     few hours.

    The NHAMCS included an item on urgency to better understand the
    continuum of care provided by hospital EDs.  For the purposes of the
    survey, urgent visits were defined in the instructions given to sample
    hospitals as those which met the following conditions: "Patient
    requires immediate attention for acute illness or injury that threatens
    life or function.  Delay would be harmful to the patient."  Nonurgent
    visits were defined as those in which "patient does not require
    attention immediately or within a few hours."   


    The definition of urgency used in the NHAMCS does not directly
    address visits for symptoms that would cause a "prudent layperson" to
    seek emergency care, but for which it was later determined that
    emergency care was not necessary.  Such visits would be considered
    urgent based on the definition used by the American College of
    Emergency Physicians (ACEP), but would not be so categorized using a
    literal interpretation of the NHAMCS definition.  An informal followup
    of 1994 NHAMCS respondents indicated that many EDs were basing their
    determination of urgency on the patient's symptoms, while other EDs
    based it on the physician's diagnosis or the treatment provided. 
    Despite the uncertainties related to the manner in which these data
    were collected, they are useful for examining the complex issues
    surrounding urgency of care.  

    It is also important to acknowledge the continuing debate concerning
    the relationship between urgency of visit and appropriateness of ED
    utilization, and to avoid equating urgent visits as defined in the
    NHAMCS with appropriate visits to hospital EDs 1/.  A comprehensive
    picture of urgency must take into account other factors, such as
    the patient's subjective reasons for visiting the ED, nature 
    and severity of the patient's symptoms, and issues of access to and
    availability of alternate source of outpatient care. Analyses are
    currently being conducted to better understand the urgency data
    collected in the NHAMCS and to modify how the data are collected in
    future surveys.  

 
   Item 16 (OPD), Item 18 (ED) - MEDICATIONS/INJECTIONS

    List all medications (drugs, vitamins, hormones, ointments, suppositories)
    ordered, injected, administered, or provided during this visit, using
    either brand or generic names.  When listing medications, include the
    specific names of any:

      prescription and non-prescription medication;
      injections;
      vaccinations;
      immunizations and allergy shots;
      anesthetics;
      drugs and medications which have been ordered, supplied, or
       administered prior to this visit and the physician or other clinic
       staff instructs or expects the patient to continue taking regardless
       of whether a "refill" is provided at the time of visit.

    Be sure to follow these instructions:

      Record the exact drug name (brand or generic) written on any
       prescription or in the clinic medical record.

      Do not enter broad drug classes, such as "laxative," "cough medicine,"
       "analgesic," "antacid," "birth control pills," or "antibiotics."  The
       one exception is "allergy shot."

DEFINITIONS OF TERMS USED IN THE SURVEY           


  Patient - An individual seeking personal health services not currently 
  admitted to any health care institution on the premises.  A person under
  a physician's care for health reasons.  Patients are defined as in scope 
  or out of scope as follows:

         In scope - A patient seen by hospital staff in an in scope emergency
            service area or clinic except as excluded below.

         Out of scope - Patients seen by a physician in their private office,
            nursing home, or other extended care institution or in the
            patient's home.  Patients who contact and receive advice from
            hospital staff via telephone.  Patients who come to the hospital
            only to leave a specimen, to pick up insurance forms, to pick up
            medication, or to pay a bill.

  Visit - A visit is a direct, personal exchange between an ambulatory 
  patient and a physician or other health care provider working under the 
  physician's supervision, for the purpose of seeking care and receiving 
  personal health services.

  Drug mention - The entry of a pharmaceutical agent ordered or provided--
  by any route of administration--for prevention, diagnosis, or treatment.  
  Generic as well as brand name drugs are included, as are nonprescription 
  as well as prescription drugs.  Along with all new drugs, the hospital 
  staff also records continued medication if the patient was specifically 
  instructed during the visit to continue the medication.

  Hospital - All hospitals with an average length of stay for all patients 
  of less than 30 days (short-stay) or hospital whose specialty is general
  (medical or surgical) or children's general are eligible for the National 
  Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey except Federal hospitals and 
  hospital units of institutions, and hospitals with less than six beds 
  staffed for patient use.
 
  Ownership - Hospitals are designated according to the primary owner of the
  hospital based on the SMG Hospital Market Data Base.

         Voluntary nonprofit - hospitals operated by a church or another
            nonprofit organization
            
         Government, non-Federal - hospitals operated by state or local
            governments

         Proprietary - hospitals operated by individuals, partnerships, or
            corporations for profit.

  Urbanicity - Hospitals are classified by their location in a metropolitan
  or non-metropolitan statistical area.

  MSA - Metropolitan Statistical Area as defined by the U.S. Office of 
  Management and Budget.  The definition of an individual MSA involves two 
  considerations: first, a city or cities of specified population that 
  constitute the central city and identify the county in which it is located 
  as the central county; second, economic and social relationships with 
  "contiguous" counties that are metropolitan in character so that the 
  periphery of the specific metropolitan area may be determined.  MSAs may 
  cross state lines.  In New England, MSAs consist of cities and towns rather 
  than counties.

  Non-MSA - Non-metropolitan Statistical Area (area other than metropolitan).
  
  Emergency department - Hospital facility for the provision of unschedled
  outpatient services to patients whose conditions require immediate care
  and which is staffed 24 hours a day.  Emergency department that are open
  less than 24 hours a day are included as part of the hospital's outpatient
  department.

  Emergency service area - Area within the emergency department where
  emergency services are provided.  This includes services provided under
  the "hospital as landlord" arrangement in which the hospital rents space
  to a physician group.

  Outpatient department - Hospital facility where non-urgent ambulatory 
  medical care is provided under the supervision of a physician.

  Clinic - Administrative unit within an organized outpatient department that
  provides ambulatory medical care under the supervision of a physician.  This
  excludes the "hospital as landlord" arrangement in which the hospital only
  rents space to a physician group and is not otherwise involved in the 
  delivery of services.  Clinics are grouped into the following six specialty
  groups for purposes of systematic sampling and non-response adjustment:  
  general medicine, surgery, pediatrics, obstetrics/gynecology, substance 
  abuse, and other.  Clinics are defined as in scope or out of scope
