National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey, 1994
DSN:  CC37.NAMCS94


 
DESCRIPTION OF THE NATIONAL AMBULATORY MEDICAL CARE SURVEY

    
    A.  INTRODUCTION
    
    This file contains data collected in the 1994 National Ambulatory
    Medical Care Survey (NAMCS).  The NAMCS is a national probability sample
    survey conducted by the Division of Health Care Statistics, National 
    Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), Centers for Disease Control and
    Prevention (CDC).  A national sample of office-based physicians provides
    data on patients' office visits.  These data are weighted to produce
    national estimates that describe the utilization of ambulatory medical 
    care services in the United States.  

    In 1994, a total of 33,598 Patient Record forms were received from the
    1,704 physicians who participated in the NAMCS.  For a brief description
    of the survey design and data collection procedures, see below.  For a
    more detailed description of the survey design, data collection
    procedures, and the estimation process see references 1 and 2.
    
    Please note the following important points concerning analysis of NAMCS
    data on this file:
    
        PATIENT VISIT WEIGHT - Data 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 11. 
        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.
    
        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 standard error of 30% or less (that is, 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."  If you would like more information, do not hesitate to 
        consult the staff of the Ambulatory Care Statistics Branch.
    
    
    B.  SCOPE OF THE SURVEY
    
    The basic sampling unit for the NAMCS is the physician-patient 
    encounter or visit.  Only visits to the offices of nonfederally employed
    physicians classified by the American Medical Association (AMA) or the
    American Osteopathic Association (AOA) as "office-based, patient care"
    were included in the 1994 NAMCS.  Physicians in the specialties of 
    anesthesiology, pathology, and radiology were excluded from the physician
    universe.  Types of contacts not included in the 1994 NAMCS were
    those made by telephone, those made outside the physician's office (for
    example, house calls), visits made in hospital settings (unless the 
    physician has a private office in a hospital, visits made in 
    institutional settings by patients for whom the institution has primary
    responsibility over time (for example, nursing homes), and visits to 
    doctors' offices that are made for administrative purposes only (for
    example, to leave a specimen, pay a bill, or pick up insurance forms).
                                       

    C.  SAMPLING FRAME AND SIZE OF SAMPLE
    
    The sampling frame for the 1994 NAMCS was composed of all physicians
    contained in the master files maintained by the AMA and AOA as of
    December 31, 1993, who met the following criteria:
    
        Office-based, as defined by the AMA and AOA;
    
        Principally engaged in patient care activities;
    
        Nonfederally employed;
    
        Not in specialties of anesthesiology, pathology, and radiology.
    
    The 1994 NAMCS sample included 3,499 physicians:  3,156 Medical Doctors
    and 343 Doctors of Osteopathy.  Sample physicians were screened at the 
    time of the survey to assure that they met the above-mentioned criteria. 
    A total of 1,073 physicians did not meet all of the criteria and were, 
    therefore, ruled out of scope (ineligible) for the study.  The most 
    frequent reasons for being out of scope were that the physician was 
    retired, deceased, or employed in teaching, research, or administration. 
    Of the 2,426 in-scope (eligible) physicians, 70 percent participated in 
    the study.  The physician universe, sample size, and response rates by 
    physician specialty are shown in table I.  Of the participating 
    physicians, 251 saw no patients during their assigned reporting period 
    because of vacations, illness, or other reasons for being temporarily not
    in practice.

* Data are derived from the American Medical Association and the American 
  Osteopathic Association and represent the total number of physicians who
  are eligible for the NAMCS.                   
** Response rate is number of respondents divided by number of in-scope
   physicians.

 
    D.  SAMPLE DESIGN
    
    The 1994 NAMCS utilized a multistage probability design that involved
    probability samples of primary sampling units (PSU's), physician
    practices within PSU's, and patient visits within practices.  The
    first-stage sample included 112 PSU's.  PSU's are counties, groups of
    counties, county equivalents (such as parishes or independent cities), or 
    towns and townships (for some PSU's in New England).
    
    The second stage consisted of a probability sample of practicing
    physicians selected from the master files maintained by the American
    Medical Association (AMA) and American Osteopathic Association (AOA).
    Within each PSU, all eligible physicians were stratified by fifteen
    specialty groups: general and family practice, osteopathy, internal
    medicine, pediatrics, general surgery, obstetrics and gynecology,
    orthopedic surgery, cardiovascular diseases, dermatology, urology,
    psychiatry, neurology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, and "all other" 
    specialties.  
    
    The final stage was the selection of patient visits within the
    annual practices of sample physicians.  This involved two steps.  First,
    the total physician sample was divided into 52 random subsamples of
    approximately equal size, and each subsample was randomly assigned to 1
    of the 52 weeks in the survey year. Second, a systematic random sample
    of visits was selected by the physician during the assigned week.  The
    sampling rate varied for this final step from a 100-percent sample for
    very small practices to a 20-percent sample for very large practices as
    determined in a presurvey interview.  The method by which the sampling
    rate was determined is described in reference 3.

    E. POPULATION FIGURES

    The base population used in computing annual visit rates is presented in
    table II.  These figures are based on provisional estimates for the
    civilian noninstitutionalized population as of July 1, 1994, provided by
    the U.S. Bureau of the Census. The population estimates are presented
    here solely for the purpose of providing denominators for rate
    computation and should not be considered official population
    estimates.

 noninstitutionalized population of the United States as of July 1, 1994.
 
 Figures may not add to totals because of rounding.


    F. FIELD ACTIVITIES
    
    The first contact with the sample physician was through a letter from the
    Director, NCHS.  After the physician received the introductory letter(s),
    the field representative telephoned the physician to set up an appoint-
    ment with him or her to discuss the survey and instruct the doctor on how
    to complete the forms.
    

    G.  DATA COLLECTION
    
    The actual data collection for the NAMCS was carried out by the
    physician aided by his or her office staff when possible.  Two data
    collection forms were employed by the physician:  The Patient Log and
    the Patient Record form.  The Patient Log is used to sequentially list
    patients seen in the physician's office during his or her assigned 
    reporting week.  This list served as the sampling frame to indicate the 
    visits for which data were to be recorded.  A perforation between the 
    patient's name on the Patient Log and patient visit information on the
    Patient Record form permitted the physician to detach and retain the 
    listing of patients, thus assuring confidentiality.
                                   
    Based on the physician's estimate of the expected number of office
    visits, each physician was assigned a patient-sampling ratio. These
    ratios were designed so that about 30 Patient Record forms were completed
    during the assigned reporting week.  Physicians expecting few
    visits each day recorded data for all of them, while those expecting
    more than a predetermined number of visits per day recorded data for 
    every second, third, or fifth visit.   These procedures minimized the 
    data collection workload and maintained approximately equal reporting 
    levels among sample physicians regardless of practice size.  A
    random start was provided on the first page of the log, so that
    predesignated sample visits on each succeeding page of the log provided
    a systematic random sample of patient visits during the reporting
    period.


    H.  DATA PROCESSING
    
    In addition to the completeness checks made by the field staff, clerical
    edits were performed upon receipt of the data for central processing.
    Item nonresponse rates were 5 percent or less for all data items, with
    the following exceptions: race, item 4 (10 percent), duration of this 
    visit, item 18 (10 percent), and ethnicity, item 5 (15 percent).
    
    Information from the Induction Interview and Patient Record form was
    keyed, with 100-percent verification, to computer file.  Extensive 
    computer consistency and edit checks were also performed.  Data items 
    still unanswered at this point were imputed by randomly assigning a value
    from a Patient Record form with similar characteristics; imputations were
    based on physician specialty and broad diagnostic categories.  Any data 
    field imputed in this manner is so indicated by a code in one of columns 
    179-187 on the data file.    

 
    I.  MEDICAL CODING 
    
    The Patient Record form contains four medical items requiring three
    separate coding systems.  The three coding systems are described briefly
    below.  Quality control for the NAMCS medical and drug coding operations
    involved a two-way 100 percent independent verification procedure.  A
    dependent verification procedure was used to review and adjudicate all
    records with coding discrepancies.  Definitions of the four medical items
    can be found in the section "1994 NAMCS Patient Record Form."
   
        1.  Patient's Complaint(s), Symptoms(s), or Other Reason(s) for this
        Visit:  Information collected in item 10 of the Patient Record form 
        was coded according to A Reason for Visit Classification for 
        Ambulatory Care (RVC) (reference 4). The updated classification is
        available (reference 5), and the list of codes is shown in the 
        section, "Reason for Visit Classification."  The classification 
        was updated to incorporate several new codes as well as changes to 
        existing codes.  The system continues to utilize a modular structure.  
        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 10, in sequence; 
        coding instructions for this item are contained in the Reason for
        Visit Classification and Coding Manual (reference 5). 

        2.  Physician's Diagnoses:  Diagnostic information in item 11 of
        the Patient Record form was coded according to the International
        Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification,
        Fourth Edition (ICD-9-CM) (reference 6).  The 1994 NAMCS data 
        codes for diagnoses have the following characteristics:
 
          a.  The prefix "1" preceding the diagnostic codes has been added
              to identify all codes in the range 001.0[0]-999.9[0], e.g.
              '138100' = '381.00' = Acute nonsuppurative otitis media,
              unspecified.
    
          b.  The prefix "20" preceding diagnostic codes represents V code
              diagnoses V01.0[0]-V82.9[0], e.g. '201081' = 'V10.81' = 
              personal history of malignant neoplasm of bone.  


          NOTE:  These prefixes were used because they facilitated data
          analysis using ACSB software systems.  Please note that starting
          with the 1995 NAMCS public use data files, diagnostic fields
          will be included that will reflect actual ICD-9-CM codes 
          without prefix or zerofills.

          c.  In addition to the diagnostic codes from the ICD-9-CM there
              are 3 unique codes in the diagnostic fields that were
              developed by the NAMCS staff:
    
                209900 =  noncodable diagnosis
                          insufficient information for coding
                          illegible diagnosis
                209970 =  diagnosis of "none"
                900000 =  blank diagnosis
    
        A maximum of three diagnoses were coded in sequence.  Coding 
        instructions concerning diagnoses are contained in the NAMCS Coding
        Requirements Manual, volume 1 (reference 7).
    
        3. Diagnostic and Therapeutic Procedures: Data from part b of item
        14 (Tests, surgical and nonsurgical procedures, and therapies) of the
        Patient Record form were coded according to the International     
        Classification of Diseases (ICD-9-CM), using the procedure codes in 
        Volume III. Up to 8 procedures could be coded for each visit.  
        Codes are left-justified and do not use zerofills/prefixes.  Codes
        without an applicable 4th digit are blank in the 4th position.

        4. Medication Therapy:  The NAMCS drug data collected in item 16
        have been classified and coded according to a unique classification
        scheme developed at NCHS (reference 8).  A list of drug codes is
        included in the section, "List of Drug Entry Codes and Names."  The 
        1994 Patient Record form allows for the recording of up to 5 drugs.  
        In addition to drug codes by entry name (the entry made on the Patient 
        Record form by the physician or his/her 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.  (A list of
        generic names is given in the section, "List of Generic Codes and 
        Names.")

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

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

        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 s/he should utilize the composition status
              code = '1', in conjunction with the "generic name code" field.
              A single ingredient drug will have one generic code in the
              "generic name code" field, and blanks in the five "ingredient
              codes" fields.  Ingredient codes should NOT be used when
              analyzing single-entity drugs.

              On the other hand, if the user is searching for combination
              drugs, then s/he should utilize composition status code = '2',
              in conjunction with the "ingredient codes" fields.  A combi-
              nation drug will have a blank generic code in the "generic
              name code" field, and from one to five generic codes in the
              "ingredient codes" fields.  The "generic name code" field
              should NOT be used when analyzing combination drugs.
 
        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, 1985 edition (reference 9).  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."

    For data 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 five drug mentions recorded, so what-
    ever subset is created will need to include all of them.  This documenta-
    tion 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.
 

    J.  ESTIMATION PROCEDURES
    
    Statistics produced from the 1994 National Ambulatory Medical Care
    Survey were derived by a multistage estimating procedure. The procedure
    produces essentially unbiased national estimates and has basically three
    components:  (1) inflation by reciprocals of the probabilities of
    selection, (2) adjustment for nonresponse, and (3) a ratio adjustment to
    fixed totals. Each of these components is described briefly below.

    
    1.  Inflation of Reciprocals by Sampling Probabilities

    Since the survey utilized a three-stage sample design, there were
    three probabilities:  
          
             a)  the probability of selecting the PSU; 
             b)  the probability of selecting a physician within the PSU; and
             c)  the probability of selecting a patient visit within the
                 physician's practice.  

    The last probability was defined to be the exact number of office visits 
    during the physician's specified reporting week divided by the number of
    Patient Record forms completed.  All weekly estimates were inflated by a
    factor of 52 to derive annual estimates.
    
    2.  Adjustment for Nonresponse

    Estimates from the NAMCS data were adjusted to account for sample 
    physicians who did not participate in the study.  This was done in such 
    a manner as to minimize the impact of nonresponse on final estimates by
    imputing to nonresponding physicians the practice characteristics of 
    similar responding physicians.  For this purpose, similar physicians 
    were judged to be physicians having the same specialty designation and 
    practicing in the same PSU.
    
    3.  Ratio Adjustment 

    A postratio adjustment was made within each of the fifteen 
    physician specialty groups.  The ratio adjustment is a multiplication 
    factor which had as its numerator the number of physicians in the 
    universe in each physician specialty group, and as its denominator the 
    estimated number of physicians in that particular specialty group.  The
    numerator was based on figures obtained from the AMA-AOA master
    files, and the denominator was based on data from the sample.
    

    K.  SAMPLING ERRORS
    
    Procedures for calculating sampling errors as well as estimates of
    standard errors of statistics derived from the NAMCS are described in
    the technical notes of references 2 and 10, as well as in the section, 
    "Relative Standard Errors."


    L.  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 micro-data file reflect data concerning only a sample of patient
    visits, not a complete count of all the visits that occurred in the
    United States.  Each record on the data file represents one visit in the
    sample of 33,598 visits. In order to obtain national estimates from the
    sample, each record is assigned an inflation factor called the "patient
    visit weight."  By aggregating the "patient visit weights" on the 33,598
    sample records for 1994 the user can obtain the estimated total of 
    681,457,491 office visits made in the United States.
    
    Marginal tables, which are shown in the section, "Marginal Data," 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.
    

    M.  PHYSICIAN 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
    data file with individual physicians' practices. This linkage
    will enable users to conduct more comprehensive analyses without
    violating the confidentiality of patients or physicians.  

    To uniquely identify a record, both the physician code and the patient
    code must be used.  Patient codes are merely a sequential numbering of 
    the visits recorded by the physician (from '001' to '071') and alone will
    not uniquely identify visit records.  In order to do so, both the unique
    4-digit physician code and the 3-digit patient code must be used.

 (Note: For the purposes of this variable, doctors of osteopathy (stratum 02)
 have been aggregated with doctors of medicine according to their self-
 designated practice specialty, and therefore are not differentiated in the
 field range.  To isolate doctors of osteopathy from medical doctors using 
 the Physician Specialty Recode, it is necessary to crosstabulate it with
 Type of Doctor, located in position 171.)



PHYSICIAN SPECIALTY LIST    

       The 1994 NAMCS survey design grouped physicians into 15 strata, or       
  specialty groups, for sampling purposes.  One stratum, doctors of      
  osteopathy, was based on information from the American Osteopathic     
  Association.  The other groups were developed based on information from
  the American Medical Association (AMA).  Below is a list of AMA 
  physician specialties comprising each of these sample strata.  An
  asterisk beside the specialty name indicates that the specialty was added
  to the NAMCS for the first time in 1994.

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.  Tables I and II 
 show relative standard errors for a wide range of visit estimates and drug
 mention estimates, including the lowest reliable estimate, by physician 
 specialty.  (Estimates with a relative standard error greater than 30 percent
 are considered unreliable by the standards of the National Center for Health
 Statistics.)  In addition, the following formulas may be used to calculate 
 relative standard errors for visit estimates and drug mention estimates:

 For aggregate estimates, approximate relative standard errors can be cal-
 culated 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 III:  

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

           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 U.S.
 population or one of the age-sex-race groups of the total population, the
 relative standard error is equivalent to the relative standard error of the
 numerator, as shown above in the paragraph on aggregate estimates.  For 
 additional information, contact the Ambulatory Care Statistics Branch at
 (301) 436-7132.

 IMPORTANT NOTE:
 The relative standard errors shown for doctors of osteopathy in Tables I
 and II are appropriate for analyses of NAMCS data in which visits to 
 osteopaths are analyzed separately from all other visits.  The relative 
 standard errors shown for all other specialties, however, have been computed 
 for use with estimates in which doctors of osteopathy have been aggregated 
 with all other specialties, according to their self-designated practice 
 specialty.  For those who wish to perform analyses on doctors of medicine 
 separate from doctors of osteopathy, please contact the Ambulatory Care 
 Statistics Branch for additional information.

PATIENT RECORD FORM 

INSTRUCTIONS AND DEFINITIONS

ITEM 1 - DATE OF VISIT

     The month, day, and year should be recorded in figures, for example, 
4/17/94 for April 17, 1994. The physician's assistant may often record the 
date on a number of forms in advance, or enter the date at the end of the day  
if the doctor has not done this.

ITEM 2 - DATE OF BIRTH

     The month, day, and year of the patient's birth should be recorded here, 
in the same fashion as Date of Visit, above.  This information will almost 
always be available in the patient's file, although sometimes the assistant 
may be responsible for looking it up.  In the rare event the date of birth is
unknown, the year of birth should be estimated as closely as possible.  For 
patients 100 years or older, record year as 18--.

ITEM 3 - SEX

     Self-explanatory.  In this and all other precoded questions, please 
instruct the physician and assistant to mark with an "X" rather than a check.

ITEM 4 - COLOR OR RACE

     This information is to be recorded based on observation or physician's 
knowledge of patient.  The physician (staff) is not expected to ask the 
patient for this information.  If the patient's race is not obvious, the 
physician (or assistant) should mark the box which in his/her judgment is 
most appropriate.  The definitions of the categories are listed below.

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

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


ITEM 5 - ETHNICITY

     Ethnicity relates to belonging to an ethnic group -- that is, a person's 
national or cultural group.  NAMCS has two categories for ethnicity - 
Hispanic and Not Hispanic.  If the patient's ethnicity is not known and is 
not obvious, the physician (or assistant) should mark the box which in 
his/her judgment is most appropriate.

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

     2 - Not Hispanic:  All other persons.
      
ITEM 6 - EXPECTED SOURCE(S) OF PAYMENT

     The physician or staff member is to check the source or sources that 
will pay for this visit. This information is usually kept in the patient's 
file.  However, in large group practices, the business office may keep 
billing information in a computer.   

     1. Private/commercial - charges paid in-part or in-full by a private 
insurance company.  Includes payments made directly to the physician 
as well as payments reimbursed to the physician.

     2. Medicare - Charges paid in-part or in-full by a Medicare plan.  
Includes payments directly to the physician as well as payments 
reimbursed to the patient.  If charges are covered under a Medicare 
sponsored prepaid plan, mark this box and the prepaid plan box below.

     3. Medicaid - Charges paid in-part or in-full by a Medicaid plan.  
Includes payments made directly to the physician as well as payments 
reimbursed to the physician.

     4. Other government - Includes payments made under any other local, 
state, or Federal health care programs, such as workers' compensation 
programs and CHAMPUS.

     5. HMO/other prepaid - Charges included under a prepayment plan.  
Includes Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO's), Independent Practice
Associations (IPA's), Preferred Provider Organizations (PPO's), etc.

     6. Patient paid -  Charges, paid in-part or in-full by the patient or 
patient's family, which will not be reimbursed by a third party.  Exclude 
prepaid plan visits for which no co-payment is charged.  Mark one or more 
boxes if partial payment is expected from one or more third parties.

     7. 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 charges for the entire pregnancy.  Mark the box, or 
boxes, that indicate how the services were originally paid.


     8. Other - Any other source of payment not covered in above categories.

It is not necessary for the respondent to enter anything after checking 
"Other."  There should not be many such responses as most common payment 
sources will fit into one of the 7 specified categories.  Remember that 
multiple responses are possible here.  "Patient paid" 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 pay most of the bill.  This should be 
mentioned when reviewing the PRF items with the physician and staff.

The item is titled "Expected Source of Payment" because it is often unknown 
at the time of the visits 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.  When the 
data are abstracted from records, any indication of a probable payment
source should be used.  For example, if the record says, "Medicare pending," 
then Medicare is the expected source of payment.  If a source of payment 
is not known, the it obviously cannot be checked. If, for example, an HMO 
includes Medicare patients, but the staff does not know which
patients are part of the Medicare program, the respondent can only indicate 
"HMO" as the expected source of payment.

ITEM 7 - WAS PATIENT REFERRED FOR THIS VISIT BY ANOTHER PHYSICIAN?

     This item is intended to provide an idea of the "flow" of ambulatory 
patients from one physician to another.  Mark "Yes" or "No" as appropriate. 

     Notice that this item concerns referral to the sample physician by a 
different physician.  Box 5 of item 17 provides information concerning 
referrals by the sample physician to another physician.  The interest is 
in referrals for this visit and not in referrals for any prior visit.  
Referrals are any visits that are made because of the advice or direction of 
a physician other than the one being visited.

ITEM 8 - IS THIS VISIT INJURY RELATED?

     The physician must mark the "Yes" or "No" box to indicate whether the 
patient's visit was due to an injury.  The injury does not need to be recent.  
It is also includes those visits for follow-up of previously treated 
injuries and visits for flare-ups of problems due to old injuries.

ITEM 9 - DOES PATIENT SMOKE CIGARETTES?

     If the patient currently smokes, the physician should mark the "Yes" 
box, regardless of how many cigarettes the patients 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 the physician does not 
know for sure whether the patient smokes cigarettes.


ITEM 10 - PATIENT'S COMPLAINT(S), SYMPTOM(S) OR OTHER REASON(S) FOR
THIS VISIT (in patient's own words)

     This is one of the most important items on the Patient Record form.  
No similar data for visits to office-based physicians are available 
anywhere and there is tremendous interest in the findings.  Take the time to 
be sure the doctor understands what is wanted -- emphasizing the
following three points:

1.  We want the patient's principal complaints, symptoms, or other reason 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 in item 10 we are interested in how the patient defines his/her trouble.

2.  The item (like almost all other items on the Patient Record form) refers 
to this visit. Conceivably, the patient may be undergoing a course of 
treatment for a serious illness, but if his principal problem on this visit 
is a cut finger or a twisted ankle, that is the information we want.       

3.  The complaint or symptom should be described in the patient's own words.  
We will obtain the physician's diagnosis in item 11.  Here we want the 
patient's description of the problem: "pain in chest," "cramps after eating," 
etc.

Space has been allotted for both the "most important" and two other 
complaints, symptoms, or reasons mentioned by the patient.  The most 
important should be entered in (a), the other or others in (b) and 
(c).  By "most important" we mean that problem or symptoms which, in the
physician's judgment, was most responsible for causing the patient to make 
this visit.  Since we are interested only in the patient's principal 
complaints, symptoms, and reasons, 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, the physician should simply enter the 
reason for the visit.  

NOTE: Remember that if the reason for patient's visit was only to pay a bill, 
ask the physician to complete an insurance form, or to drop off a specimen, 
the patient is not recorded on the Log and no Patient Record form should be 
completed.

ITEM 11 - PHYSICIAN'S DIAGNOSES

     The physician must understand the distinction between the two parts of 
this item.

     Item 11a refers to the diagnosis associated with the entry in Item 10a.  
How did the physician diagnose the most important complaint or symptom 
presented by the patient on this visit? The diagnosis may be tentative, 
provisional, or definitive; it should represent the physician's
best judgment at the this time, expressed in acceptable medical terminology
including "problem" terms.  

     If no complaint or symptom is given in item 10a (e.g. annual checkup, 
routine prenatal care) and no diagnosis is made, the physician should 
enter "None."

     If a patient appears for postoperative care (follow-up visit after 
surgery) the physician should record the postoperative diagnosis as well as 
any other diagnosis associated with item 10a.  

     The postoperative diagnosis should be indicated with the letters P.O.

     In contrast to most items on the survey, Items 11b and 11c do not refer 
solely to this particular office visit.  The physician should list here his/
her diagnosis of other conditions known to exist for this patient at this 
time, regardless of their relationship to the present problem.

ITEM 12 - HAVE YOU OR ANYONE IN YOUR PRACTICE SEEN PATIENT BEFORE?

     "Seen" means "provided care for" at any time in the past.  In group 
practices, check "Yes" if the patient was seen before by another physician 
or staff member in the group.
   
     If  "No" (never saw patient before), the physician marks that box and 
goes on to Item 13.  But point out that if he/she marks "Yes," he/she must 
also answer the sub-question:  Has this patient been seen before for the 
condition diagnosed in Item 11?

ITEM 13 - DOES PATIENT NOW HAVE:

     The intent of this question is to supplement the diagnoses reported in 
item 11.  The physician should check any of the selected conditions (listed 
below) even if it was already reported in item 11.  Any condition the 
physician thinks clinically significant should be included.  If none of the
conditions exist, the "None of the above" box should be marked.

NOTE:  Entries in item 11 should not be added or deleted based on responses 
to this item.

      1. Asthma
      2. Diabetes                                                               

3. HIV                                                 
      4. Obesity
      5. Osteoporosis
      6. None of the above

ITEM 14 - TESTS, SURGICAL AND NONSURGICAL PROCEDURES, AND
THERAPIES

     a. Selected services - The physician should mark all services or 
procedures that were ordered or provided during this visit for the purpose 
of screening (i.e. early detection of health problems in asymptomatic 
individuals) or diagnosis (i.e. identification of health problems causing
individuals to be symptomatic).  During a visit for a complete physician 
exam, several of the services may be ordered or provided.  EACH SERVICE 
SHOULD BE MARKED.

      1 - Blood pressure
      2 - Urinalysis
      3 - Spirometry
      4 - Allergy testing
      5 - HIV serology
      6 - Other blood test

     b. All other services - Instruct the physician to record any additional 
services in column b.  This includes:

      1 - Surgical and nonsurgical procedures ordered or performed.  Record the 
specific name of any ambulatory (outpatient) surgical procedure performed, 
ordered, or scheduled at the time of this visit.  Routine surgical procedures 
(such as wound care), as well as more complex procedures (such as cataract 
extraction, vasectomy, hernia repair, growth removal, etc.) should be 
reported.  Any procedure designated in the CPT-4 (which physicians and their 
staff will be familiar with) may be recorded.

      2 - Therapeutic services (non-medication therapy) ordered or performed.  
Examples include:
      
       Psychotherapy - All treatments designed to produce a mental or 
emotional response through suggestion, persuasion, re-education, reassurance 
or support, e.g. psychological counseling, hypnosis, psychoanalysis, 
transactional therapy.                                              

      Corrective lenses - Provision, ordering or prescription for glasses or 
contact lenses.

      Physiotherapy - Any form of physical therapy including treatments using 
heat, light, whirlpool, diathermy, cold and manipulative therapy.
   
      3 - Any other screening or diagnostic services not listed in column (a).  
This includes tests (e.g. EKG, mental status exam), and imaging (e.g. chest
x-ray, MRI).                                            

      For each test, procedure or therapy listed in column (b), mark the 
"Ordered" or "Performed" box to indicate if it was performed at this visit 
or ordered to be performed at a later date.

      Do not include counseling, advice, educational services, or medication.  
This information is collected in items 15 and 16.

      If no tests, surgical or nonsurgical procedures, or therapies were 
ordered or performed, instruct the physician to check the "None" box.


This "all inclusive" item covers medical surgical and nonsurgical procedures 
done to or for the patient that aren't covered in another item.  It includes 
all tests, procedures, and other services provided or ordered for the 
purposes of diagnosing an illness, treating a condition, screening or
prevention, except for those listed in items 14a, 15, and 16. The following 
are categories of procedures that would be included in item 14b:
 
X-ray or other imaging (e.g. echocardiography, routine chest x ray, mammogram, 
CAT scan of head, MRI of brain);  incisions (e.g. I & D of abscess, incision 
of pilonidal cyst); excisions (e.g. excision of cyst from leg, dermabrasion);
dressing, removal of ... (e.g. change bandage on wound, skin lesion, 
pseudophakos, tympanotomy tube, toenail); insertion of ... (e.g. IUD, 
bilateral breast implants); repairs (repair of retinal tear by laser, 
photocoagulation, suture of scalp wound laceration, etc.); biopsy (
closed biopsy of breast, biopsy of skin lesion); endoscopy (gastroscopy, 
colposcopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy, etc.); ...ectomy (vasectomy, upper 
eyelid rhytidectomy, tonsillectomy, etc.); ...test ( pap test, visual
acuity test, stress test-treadmill, etc.); nonmedicine Rx (hearing aid Rx, 
contact lens Rx, etc.); exams (limited eye exam, general medical exam, 
gynecological exam, etc.); and other (phacoemulsification and aspiration 
of cataract, injection of sclerosing  material into vein, individual 
psychotherapy, audiometry, etc.).

ITEM 15 - COUNSELING/EDUCATION

     Instruct the physician to check ALL appropriate boxes for any 
counseling, advice, education, instructions, or recommendations to the 
patient provided or ordered during the visit.  Mark box 10 "Other 
counseling" for all counseling involving a current or potential health 
problem not listed.
   
     Exclude any form of medication, since this will be collected in item 16.

     The physician should mark box 1 "None" if no services were provided.  
Categories are:

      1.  None
      2.  Exercise
      3.  Cholesterol reduction
      4.  Weight reduction
      5.  Smoking cessation
      6.  Growth/development
      7.  Injury prevention
      8.  HIV transmission
      9.  Other STD transmission
     10.  Other  

ITEM 16 - MEDICATIONS/INJECTIONS

     Explain to physician that he/she should list all medications (drugs, 
vitamins, hormones, ointments, suppositories) ordered, injected, 
administered or provided this visit, using either brand or generic names.  
When listing medications, the doctor should include:
   
     prescription and nonprescription medication;

     vaccinations;

     immunizations and allergy shots;

     anesthetics;                                                               

     drugs and medications which the doctor ordered or provided previous to 
     this visit and instructs or expects the patient to continue taking.

     Record the same SPECIFIC DRUG NAME (BRAND OR GENERIC) used on any
prescription or office medical record.  

     Do NOT enter broad drug classes, such as "laxative," "cough preparation," 
or "analgesic."

     Limit entries to DRUG NAME ONLY.  Additional information, such as 
route of administration, dosage, form, strength, or regimen is not required.
   
     If no medication was ordered or provided, the physician should indicate 
by marking the "None" box.

     Further guidelines: Medication, broadly defined, includes the specific 
name of any prescription or nonprescription drugs, injections, allergy 
shots, immunizations, or anesthetics. It should include the exact branch or 
generic name of the medication administered, provided or prescribed.  
It should not include general categories of medications such as laxatives, 
cough medicines, cold tablets, antacids, birth control pills, or antibiotics.  
The one exception is "allergy shots."  Physicians should be instructed to 
include continued medications as well as newly prescribed and provided 
medications.  Continued medications are those that the patient has been
using and is told or expected to continue using regardless of whether a 
refill is provided at the time of visit.  The following information 
is not requested and should not be entered on the PRF: 

       the number of pills prescribed, the strength of the medication, how 
       frequently it is to be taken, and the method of administration.  

     For example, the medication might be in the form of pills, injections, 
salves, or ointments, drops, suppositories, powders, or skin patches, but 
this information should not be entered on the PRF.                              

     There is room for only 5 medications on the NAMCS PRF (one on each line).  
When more than 5 are administered, provided, or ordered, use the 
following guide:

      List first those administered during visit; 
      list second those provided, 
      list third those ordered.

ITEM 17 - DISPOSITION THIS VISIT

      Eight codes are provided to describe the physician's disposition of the 
case on this visit.  The physician should mark as many categories as apply.

            DISPOSITION                   DEFINITION

   1. No Follow-up Planned        No return visit or telephone
                                  contact is scheduled for the 
                                  patient's problem on this visit.


   2. Return at Specified Time    The patient is told to schedule an
                                  appointment or is instructed to return 
                                  at a particular time.

   3. Return if Needed, P.R.N.    No future appointment is made, but the
                                  patient is instructed to make an appoint-
                                  ment with the physician if the
                                  patient considers it necessary.  
                                  (P.R.N., pro re nata, as necessary, as the    

occasion arises.)

   4. Telephone Follow-up         The patient is instructed to telephone
        Planned                   the physician on a particular day.

   5. Referred to Other           The patient is instructed to consult or
        Physician                 seek care from another physician.  The 
                                  patient may or may not return to this 
                                  physician at a later date.

   6. Returned to Referring       Patient was referred to this physician
        Physician                 and is now instructed to consult again 
                                  with the physician who referred him.

   7. Admit to Hospital           Patient is instructed that further care
                                  or treatment will be provided in a 
                                  hospital.  No further office visits are
                                  expected prior to that admission.

   8. Other (Specify)             Any other disposition of the case not 
                                  included in the above categories.  Any
                                  such "other" disposition should be
                                  described on the line provided.

ITEM 18 - DURATION OF THIS VISIT

     Include here the entire time the physician spent with the patient.  
DO NOT include the time patient spent waiting to see the doctor.  DO NOT 
include the time patient spent receiving care from someone other than the 
doctor.

     For example, the nurse gave the patient an inoculation, or a 
technician administered an electrocardiogram.  If the patient did not see 
the doctor at all, zero minutes should be entered in Item 18.  The intent of
this item is to get the total time spent in face-to-face contact with the
physician.

     If more than one patient is seen by the doctor at the same time, apply 
the following rule:

     If the doctor can easily segregate the time spent with each (e.g., 
3 minutes with one and 27 minutes with the other), he should record that 
on the Patient Record Forms.  If he cannot estimate how much time was spent 
with each, he should divide the total time equally among the patients seen
together.


DEFINITIONS OF CERTAIN TERMS USED IN THE NAMCS
    
    Office(s).--Premises that the physician identifies as locations for his
    or her ambulatory practice.  Responsibility over time for patient care
    and professional services rendered there generally resides with the
    individual physician rather than with any institution.
    
    Visit.--A direct, personal exchange between ambulatory patient and the
    physician (or members of his or her staff) for the purpose of seeking
    care and rendering health services.
    
    Ambulatory patient.--An individual presenting for personal health
    services, neither bedridden nor currently admitted to any health care
    institution on the premises.
    
    Drug mention(s).--The physician's 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. Along with all new drugs, the physician also records continued
    medications, if the patient was specifically instructed during the visit
    to continue the medication.
    
    Patients.--Can be classified as either:
    
    In-scope:  All patients seen by the physician or member of physician's
    staff in physician's office(s).
    
    Out-of-scope:  Patients seen by the physician in a hospital, nursing
    home, or other extended care institution, or the patient's home. Note:
    If the doctor has a private office (which fits definition of "office")
    located in a hospital, the ambulatory patients seen there would be
    considered "in-scope."  The following types of patients are also
    considered out of scope:
    
        patients seen by the physician in any institution (including
        outpatient clinics of hospitals) for which the institution has the
        primary responsibility for the care of the patient over time.
    
        patients who telephone and receive advice from the physician
    
        patients who come to the office only to leave a specimen, pick up
        insurance forms, or pay their bills
    
        patients who come to the office only to pick up medications
        previously prescribed by the physician
    
    Physician.--Can be classified as either:
    
    In-Scope:  All duly licensed doctors of medicine and doctors of
    osteopathy currently in practice who devote most of their practice to
    caring for ambulatory patients at an office location.


    Out-of-Scope:  Those physicians who treat patients only indirectly,
    including specialists in anesthesiology, pathology, forensic pathology,
    radiology, therapeutic radiology, and diagnostic radiology, and the
    following physicians:
    
        physicians in military service
    
        physicians who treat patients only in an institutional setting
        (e.g., patients in nursing homes and hospitals)
    
        physicians employed full time by an industry or institution and
        having no private practice (e.g., physicians who work for the VA,
        the Ford Motor Company, etc.)
    
        physicians who either spend no time seeing ambulatory patients or
        whose patient-care activity is secondary to another principal
        activity, such as teaching, administration, or research.
    
    Physician specialty.--Principal specialty (including general practice)
