DATA FILE DOCUMENTATION
DESCRIPTION OF THE NATIONAL AMBULATORY MEDICAL CARE SURVEY
A.   INTRODUCTION
     This micro-data file contains data collected in the 1997 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 1997, a total of 24,715 Patient Record forms were received from the 
     1,247 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 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 14.  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 standard
     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 accompanying file on relative standard errors (RSE).
     It should be noted that estimates based on fewer than 30 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.   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 1997 NAMCS.  Physicians in the specialties of
     anesthesiology, pathology, and radiology were excluded from the 
     physician universe.  Types of contacts not included in the 1997 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 and that office
     meets the NAMCS definition of "office"), 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 1997 NAMCS was composed of all physicians 
     contained in the master files maintained by the AMA and AOA as of
     December 31, 1995 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 1997 NAMCS sample included 2,498 physicians: 2,298 Medical Doctors 
     and 200 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 697 physicians did not meet all of the criteria and were
     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 
     1,801 in-scope (eligible) physicians, 69 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, 203 saw no patients during their assigned reporting period 
     because of vacations, illness, or other reasons for being temporarily 
     not in practice.

 (1) 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.
 (2) Response rate is number of respondents divided by number of in-scope
     physicians.
                                 
D.   SAMPLE DESIGN
     The 1997 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
     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
     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. 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, 1997.
     Figures are consistent with an unpublished hard-copy national population
     estimates release package PPL-91 (U.S. Population Estimates by Age, Sex,
     Race, and Hispanic Origin: 1990-1997) 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, 1997.   DHIS estimates
     are provisional at this time and differ slightly from monthly postcensal
     estimates due to differences in the adjustment process.  These 
     population estimates are presented here solely for the purpose of 
     providing denominators for rate computation and should not be considered
     official population estimates.

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



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 
     appointment 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/her office staff when possible.  Two data collection forms
     were employed by the physician:  The Patient Log and the Patient Record 
     (Figure 1).  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
  1. Edits  
     In addition to the completeness checks made by the field staff, clerical
     edits were performed upon receipt of the data for central processing.  
     Detailed editing instructions were provided to manually review the 
     patient records and to reclassify or recode ambiguous 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 process.  As an additional quality 
     control, all Patient Record forms with differences between coders or
     illegible entries for the reason for visit, diagnosis, cause of 
     injury (E-code), procedures, diagnosis, and medication items were 
     reviewed and adjudicated at NCHS.  Coding error rates ranged between
     0.0 and 1.7 percent for various survey items.
  3. Adjustments for Item Nonresponse
     Unweighted item nonresponse rates were 5.0 percent or less for all data 
     items with the following exceptions: Is patient pregnant? (16.7 percent
     of visits by women 15-44 years), race (12.2 percent), ethnicity (21.2
     percent), was authorization required for care? (8.4 percent), does
     patient belong to an HMO? (10.4), is this a capitated visit? (13.8 
     percent), cause of injury (21.9 percent of injury visits), place of 
     injury (48.3 percent of injury visits), is this injury intentional? 
     (26.9 percent of injury visits), work-related injury (39.4 percent of 
     injury visits), is medication from patient's formulary list? (36.3 
     percent), employment status of physician (7.3 percent), and who owns the
     office practice? (5.8 percent). 
     Some missing data items were imputed by randomly assigning a value from a 
     Patient Record form with similar characteristics; imputations were based
     on physician specialty, geographic region, and 3-digit ICD-9-CM codes
     for principal diagnosis.  The following variables were imputed: birth
     year (3.2 percent), sex (1.2 percent), race (12.2 percent), and time 
     spent with physician (10.0 percent).  (No data were missing for the date 
     of visit item, although this item would have been imputed if necessary.)
     This represents a change from previous survey years when imputations
     were also performed for the following variables: ethnicity; provider
     seen; was patient seen before, and if yes, for the current principal
     diagnosis; referral; and disposition of visit.  Beginning in 1997, these
     latter items (with the exception of "if yes, for the current principal
     diagnosis" and disposition of visit, which were not collected in the
     1997 NAMCS) are no longer imputed.  Blank or otherwise missing 
     responses are so noted in the data.
                   


I.   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 NAMCS medical and drug coding 
     operations involved a two-way 10 percent independent 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 PRF file, "Patient Record Form -  
     Instructions and Definitions."
 
 1.  Patient's Complaint(s), Symptoms(s) or Other Reason(s) for this 
     Visit:  
     Information collected in item 13 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 RVC file.  The
     classification 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 13 in sequence; 
     coding instructions for this item are contained in the Reason for Visit 
     Classification and Coding Manual (reference 5).
 
 2.  Cause of Injury: Up to three causes of injury were coded from 
     responses to item 15d. 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 6).  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 NAMCS 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
                             
     For 1997, in addition to these codes in character format, we have also 
     provided numeric recodes for the cause of injury fields at the end of the 
     record format.  Please see page 24 in the Record Format section for 
     more information on using the numeric recodes.
 
 3.  Physician's Diagnoses:  Diagnostic information in item 16 of the 
     Patient Record form  was coded according to the International 
     Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification
     (ICD-9-CM) (reference 6).  
     For 1997, the ICD-9-CM codes are provided in two formats, the true 
     ICD-9-CM code in character format, and a numeric recode found at the end 
     of the record format.  Please see page 24 in the Record Format 
     section for information on the background, purpose, and appearance of
     the numeric recodes.  The rest of this section describes the format of
     the true ICD-9-CM codes.  
     The true ICD-9-CM codes are not prefixed or zerofilled on the public use
     file.  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.  
     True supplementary classification codes are not 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 NAMCS staff:
     V990- = noncodable diagnosis, insufficient information for coding, 
             illegible diagnosis 
     V991- = left before being seen, patient walked out, not seen by doctor, 
             left against medical advice
     V992- = transferred to another facility, sent to see specialist
     V997- = 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 NAMCS Coding
     Requirements Manual, volume 1 (reference 7).


  4. Ambulatory Surgical Procedures, Diagnostic/Screening Services,
     Therapeutic/Preventive Services: Data from item 19 (ambulatory surgical 
     procedures) as well as responses to item 17, box 26 (diagnostic/
     screening services - other, specify) and item 18, box 17 (therapeutic 
     and preventive services - other, specify) 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 2 surgical 
     procedures, up to 2 open-ended responses from item 17, box 26, and up
     to 2 open-ended responses from item 18, box 17 could be coded for each 
     visit.  True 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.  Please note that, as for 
     cause of injury and diagnosis described above, this year's public use 
     file also contains numeric recodes for procedures at the end of the 
     record format.  These are described in the Record Format section.  
     During data processing, it was discovered that some respondents reported
     procedures in item 19, while others may have reported the same procedure
     in item 17 or item 18.  For this reason, when analyzing procedures, it is 
     recommended that all of the possible procedure fields be taken into 
     account regardless of item location.
     
  5. Medications/Injections:  The NAMCS drug data collected in item 20 
     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 GENCODES and MEDCODES files.  The 1997 Patient Record 
     form allows for the recording of up to six drugs.  In addition to drugs 
     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.
      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" field.  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.  But combination products 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
   that ingredients are listed as generic codes in the "ingredient codes"
   fields.  Therefore, users may search for combination products using 
   either the generic name code or the composition 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 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. Drug classes 
      are shown in the section, "List of NDC 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 (see "List of Generic Codes
   and Names in Numeric Order") 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 anywhere from one 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.
J. ESTIMATION PROCEDURES
   Statistics produced from the 1997 National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey 
   were derived by a multistage estimation procedure. The procedure
   produces essentially unbiased national estimates and has basically
   four components:  1) inflation by reciprocals of the 
   probabilities of selection; 2) adjustment for nonresponse, 3) a ratio 
   adjustment to fixed totals; and 4) weight smoothing. Each of these 
   components is described 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.

4. Weight Smoothing
   Each year there are a few sample physicians whose final visit weights are 
   large relative to those for the rest of the sample.  There is a concern
   that those few may adversely affect the ability of the resulting
   statistics to reflect the universe, especially if the sampled patient 
   visits to some of those few physicians should be unusual relative 
   to the universe.  Extremes in final weights also increase the 
   resulting variances.  Extreme weights can be truncated, but this leads 
   to an understatement of the total visit count.  The technique of weight
   smoothing is used instead, because it preserves the total estimated
   visit count within each specialty by shifting the "excess" from visits
   with the largest weights to visits with smaller weights.  
   For 1997, excessively large visits weights were truncated, and a ratio 
   adjustment was performed.   The ratio adjustment is a multiplication 
   factor that uses as its numerator the total visit count in each physician 
   specialty group before the largest weights are truncated, and, as its
   denominator, the total visit count in the same specialty group after the 
   largest weights are truncated.  The ratio adjustment was made within each 
   of the fifteen physician specialty groups and yields the same estimated 
   total visit count as the unsmoothed weights.
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 micro-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 24,715 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 24,715 sample records for 1997, the user can obtain 
   the estimated total of 787,371,906 office visits made in the United States.
   Marginal tables which are included in the documentation files 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 
   public use file with individual physicians' practices.  This linkage will
   This linkage will enable users to conduct more comprehensive analysis 
   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 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.
   The patient visit weight should never be applied directly to the patient
   and physician codes.

 NOTES ON USING THE CAUSE OF INJURY VERBATIM TEXT DATA
 In previous survey years, the cause of injury was converted to an external
 cause of injury code (E-code) by NCHS medical coders.  In 1997, the actual
 verbatim text has been included on the public use file in addition to the
 E-code.  The inclusion of the verbatim text is meant to assist data users in
 two major ways.  First, the verbatim text can be used by researchers to 
 assign records to injury classification schemes other than the "Supplementary
 Classification of External Causes of Injury and Poisoning" found in the
 ICD-9-CM, if so desired.  Second, users can search for key text words (for
 example, swimming pool) to identify diverse causes of injury.  It should be
 noted that, in an effort to preserve confidentiality, all geographic names,
 personal names, commercial names, and specific dates of injury have been
 stripped from the verbatim text.
 It is important to remember, however, that because of their very specific
 nature, exact verbatim text strings will not translate into national
 estimates and should not be used as such.  In general, we consider any
 estimate based on fewer than 30 occurrences in the data to be unreliable.  
 Therefore, a single record showing the specific cause of injury of "tripped
 over a student's backpack in her classroom and fell on left knee" should not
 be weighted to produce a national estimate.  If, however, a researcher is 
 able to identify 30 or more records where the verbatim text involves a 
 "backpack"-related injury, it might then be possible to sum the patient 
 visit weights for these records to generate a national estimate related to a
 broader group of visits for backpack-related injuries.  The reliability of 
 such an estimate would still depend upon the associated relative standard 
 error.

  NOTE: Because some survey respondents reported ambulatory surgical
  procedures in the open-ended response categories of the diagnostic

  recommended that any analysis of procedures take into account all of the
  open-ended response categories from all of these items.

NUMERIC CODES FOR CAUSE OF INJURY, DIAGNOSIS, AND PROCEDURES
*The following items were included on the public use file to facilitate
analysis of visits using the ICD-9-CM codes. Prior to the 1995 public use 
file, all ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes on the NAMCS micro-data file were 
converted from alphanumeric to numeric fields according to the following 
coding conventions: A prefix of "1" was added to ICD-9-CM codes in the range
of 001.0[-] through 999.9[-]. A prefix of "20" was substituted for the letter
"V" for codes in the range of V01.0[-] through V82.9[-]. Inapplicable fourth
and fifth digits were zerofilled. This conversion was done to facilitate 
analysis of ICD-9-CM data using the Ambulatory Care Statistics software 
systems. Similar conversions were made for ICD-9-CM procedure codes
and external cause of injury codes. Specific coding conventions are discussed
in the public use documentation for each data year.
In 1995, however, the decision was made to use the actual ICD-9-CM codes on
the public use data file. Codes were not prefixed, and a dash was inserted for 
inapplicable fourth and fifth digits. For specific details pertaining to each
type of code (diagnosis, procedure, cause of injury), refer to the 
documentation for the survey year of interest. This had the advantage of 
preserving actual codes and avoiding possible confusion over the creation 
of some artificial codes due to zerofilling.
It has come to our attention that some users of NAMCS data find it preferable
to use the numeric field recodes rather than the alphanumeric fields in 
certain data applications. Therefore, for 1997, we have included numeric
recodes for cause of injury, diagnosis, and procedure (ambulatory surgical
procedure as well as "other" diagnostic/screening service and "other"
therapeutic/preventive service) as listed below. These are in addition to the
actual codes for these variables which appear earlier on the public use file.
Users can make their own choice about which format best suits their needs.
We are interested in hearing from data users as to which format they prefer 
so that a decision can be made about whether to include both formats in future
years. Please contact Susan Schappert, Ambulatory Care Statistics Branch,
at 301-436-7132, ext. 172 with any comments or suggestions.*

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.  It should also be noted that estimates based on fewer than 30
 sample records are considered unreliable regardless of the magnitude of the
 relative standard error.)  The following formulas can 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 analyze NAMCS visit data for MDs only,
  excluding all DOs, please contact the Ambulatory Care Statistics Branch for
  additional information.

  Estimates below these figures have relative standard errors (RSEs) greater 
  than 30 percent and are considered unreliable by NCHS standards.  However, 
  if the estimate is based on fewer than 30 sample records, it is considered 
  to be unreliable regardless of the magnitude of the RSE.

 Estimates below these figures have relative standard errors (RSEs) greater 
 than 30 percent and are considered unreliable by NCHS standards.  However, 
 if the estimate is based on fewer than 30 sample records, it is considered 
 to be unreliable regardless of the magnitude of the RSE.

1997 NAMCS PATIENT RECORD FORM - INSTRUCTIONS AND DEFINITIONS
  ITEM 1 - DATE OF VISIT
  The month, day, and year should be recorded in figures, for example, 
  5/17/97 for May 17, 1997. The physician's assistant may often record the
  date on a number of forms 1) in advance, 2) at the end of the day, 
  or 3) at the time of the visit.
  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 born in the 19th century, record year as 18--.
  ITEM 3 - SEX
  Self-explanatory.  If "male," the physician marks the box and goes on to
  item 4.  But point out that if he/she marks female, he/she must also
  answer the sub-question: Is patient pregnant?
  ITEM 4 - 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 known and 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 - WAS PATIENT REFERRED BY ANOTHER PHYSICIAN OR BY A HEALTH PLAN?
   This item provides an idea of the "flow" of ambulatory patients from one  
   physician to another.  Mark the "Yes," "No," or "Unknown" category, as
   appropriate.
   Notice that this item concerns referrals to the sample physician by a 
   different physician.  The sample physician may or may not work in the 
   same health care plan as the referring physician (or referring health
   plan.)  The interest is in referrals for this visit and not in referrals
   for any prior visit.
   Referrals are visits that are made because of the advice or direction
   of a physician (or health plan) other than the physcian being visited.
   ITEM 7 - WAS AUTHORIZATION REQUIRED FOR CARE?
   Authorization is defined as permission sought or obtained from a third
   party payer prior to medical treatment.  Instruct the physician to check
   "Yes" if authorization for care was required.  Check "No" if authorization
   was not required and "Unknown" if it is not known.
   ITEM 8 - ARE YOU THE PATIENT'S PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN?
  
   The primary care physician plans and provides the comprehensive primary
   health care of the patient.  Check "Yes" if the health care provided to
   the patient during this visit was from his/her primary care physician. 
   If the physician was substituting for the primary care physician, also
   check "Yes." Check "No" if care was not from the primary care physician
   and "Unknown" if it is not known.
   ITEM 9 - PRIMARY EXPECTED SOURCE OF PAYMENT FOR THIS VISIT
   The physician or staff member is to check the primary expected source of 
   payment that will pay for this visit.  This information is usually in the 
   patient's file, but in large group practices, the business office may 
   keep billing information on a computer.   
   The physician may check only one Primary Expected Source of Payment.
   Primary Expected Source of Payment and Definition 
   1. Private Insurance - Charges paid in part or in full by a private 
   insurer (e.g. Blue Cross or Blue Shield) either directly to the physician
   or reimbursed to the patient.  Includes charges covered under a private
   insurance sponsored prepaid plan.
   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.  Includes charges covered under a Medicare sponsored prepaid plan. 
   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 patient.  Includes charges covered under a Medicaid
   sponsored prepaid plan.
   4. Workers Compensation - Includes programs designed to enable employees
   injured on the job to receive financial compensation regardless of fault.
   5. 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.  This should be mentioned
   when reviewing the PRF items with the physician and staff.
   DO NOT check this box for a copayment or deductibles.
   6. No charge - Visits for which no fee is charged (e.g. charity, special
   research, or teaching).  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.  [NOTE: This instruction should
   have read, "Mark the box that indicates how the services were originally
   paid." This is because, unlike past years, only the primary expected
   source of payment was to be checked.- Ed.]
   7. Other - Any other source of payment not covered in above categories,
   such as CHAMPUS, state and local governments, private charitable
   organizations, and other liability insurance (e.g. automobile collision
   policy coverage).
   If the primary source of payment is not known, check the "Unknown" box.
   
   ITEM 10 - DOES PATIENT BELONG TO AN HMO?
   HMO is defined as a health care delivery system that offers comprehensive
   health services provided by an established panel or network of providers
   to a voluntarily enrolled population for a prepaid fixed fee and whose
   members are required to utilize services within the panel of contracted
   providers.  Mark "Yes" if the patient belongs to an HMO.  Mark "No" if the
   patient does not belong to an HMO and "Unknown" if it is not known.
   ITEM 11 - IS THIS A CAPITATED VISIT?
   Capitation is a method of payment for health services in which an indi-
   vidual or institutional provider is paid a fixed amount for each person
   served, without regard to the actual number or nature of services 
   provided to each person in a set period of time.  Capitation is the
   characteristic payment method in certain health maintenance organizations
   (HMOs).  Mark "Yes" is the payment for this visit is capitated.  Mark "No"
   if the payment method is not capitated and "Unknown" if it is not known.
   ITEM 12 - HAVE YOU OR ANYONE IN YOUR PRACTICE/DEPARTMENT SEEN PATIENT
   BEFORE?
 
   "Seen" means "provided care for" at any time in the past.  In group 
   practices, check "Yes, etablished patient" if the patient was seen before 
   by another physician or staff member in the group.
   
   Check "No, new patient" if the physician or department never saw the
   patient before.
   ITEM 13 - 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 13 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 16.  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 (1), the other or others in 
   (2) and (3). By "most important" we mean that 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 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 14 - MAJOR REASON FOR THIS VISIT
   The physician should check the major reason for the patient's present
   visit.  Instruct the physician to check only one of the following
   "Major Reasons."
   Major Reason and Definition
   1 Acute Problem - Condition, illness, or injury having a relatively
     sudden or recent onset (within three months of this visit).  For 
     injury, only include the initial visit for the treatment of the 
     injury.
   2 Chronic Problem, routine - A visit primarily to receive care or 
     examination for a pre-existing chronic condition, illness, or injury
     (onset of condition was three months or more before this visit).
   3 Chronic Problem, flare-up - A visit primarily due to sudden exacerbation
     of a pre-existing chronic condition.
   4 Pre- or post-surgery/Injury follow-up - A visit scheduled primarily for
     followup of a previous visit to any health care provider for treatment 
     of an injury or for care required prior to or following surgery (e.g.
     pre-surgery tests, removing sutures or cast).  If the injury occurred
     within the last three months and this is the initial visit for the 
     injury, include it under "acute problem."  If this visit is for follow-
     up of an injury, not an initial visit for an injury, include it here.
   5 Non-illness care - General health maintenance examinations and routine
     periodic examinations of presumably healthy persons, both children and
     adults.  Includes prenatal and postnatal care, annual physicals, well-
     child exams and insurance examinations.
   ITEM 15 - IS THIS VISIT RELATED TO INJURY OR POISONING?
   The physician must mark the "Yes" or "No" box to indicate whether the 
   patient's visit was due to any type of injury, poisoning, or other 
   external factors.  The injury/poisoning does not need to be recent.  It
   can include those visits for follow-up of previously 
   treated injuries and visits for flare-ups of problems due to old injuries.
   This not only includes injuries or poisoning but also medical 
   misadventures and adverse drug experiences.  If this visit is injury/
   poison related, instruct the physician to:
   a) Indicate where the injury/poisoning occurred. 
      Place of occurrence and Definition
      1 Residence - apartment, boarding house, farm house, house 
        (residential), home, including private driveway, garage, garden,

        home, hospital, jail, senior citizen's home, orphanage, prison, 
        reform school; farm (buildings, land under cultivation, ranch).
        Farmhouse and home premises of farm should be included under
        "Residence."        
      If the place of injury is not known, check the "Unknown" box. 
   b) Indicate whether the injury was intentional (self-inflicted or
      assault), unintentional, or of unknown intent.
   c) Indicate whether the injury is work related.  Consider available
      information with regard to location and activity at time of injury
      (i.e. if location is farm, suspect work related and evaluate per
      criteria).
      Criteria for work-related injuries:
      1 On employer premises - Engaged in work activity, apprentice or
        vocational training; On break, in hallways, restroom, cafeteria,
        storage area; In employer parking lot while working, arriving, or
        leaving
      2 Off employer premises - Working for pay or compensation, including 
        at home; Working as a volunteer EMS, firefighter, or law enforcement
        officer; Working in family business, including family farm.
        Activity should be clearly related to a profit-oriented business;
        Traveling on business, including to and from customer/business
        contacts; Engaged in work activity where vehicle is considered the
        work environment (e.g. taxi driver, truck driver, etc.)
      Criteria for non work-related injuries:
      1 On employer premises - Engaged in recreational activities on 
        employer controlled facilities (games, etc.) for personal enjoyment;
        As a visitor for non-work purposes, not on official business.
      2 Off employer premises - Homemaker working at homemaking activities;
        Working for self, non-profit, i.e. mowing lawn, repairing own roof,
        hobby or recreation activities; Student engaged in school activities;
        Operating vehicle (personal or commerical) for non-work purposes;
        Commuting to or from work site.
   d) Describe in detail the circumstances that caused the injry (e.g. fell
      off monkey bars, motor vehicle involving collision with another car).
      Include information on the role of the patient associated with the 
      injury (e.g. bicyclist, pedestrian, unrestrained driver or passenger
      a motor vehicle, horseback rider), the specific place of occurrence
      (e.g. lake), and the activity in which the patient was engaged at the
      time of the injury (e.g. swimming, boating).
      Also include what happened to the patient and identify the proximate
      cause of the injury or injuries for which the patient sought
      treatment.  The proximate cause of injury is the mechanism of injury
      that is temporarily or immediately responsible for the injury.  An
      example is a laceration caused by a broken piece of glass.  Include,
      in addition, the underlying or precipitating cause of injury...the
      event, mechanism, or external cause of injury that initiated and led to
      the proximate cause of injury.  An example is a house fire that caused
      a person to jump out of the window.  Both the precipitating or
      underlying cause (house fire) and the proximate cause (fall from 
      roof) would be important to record.  It's especially important to
      record as much detail about falls and motor vehicle accidents as
      possible.  For each, indicate what the fall was from and where the
      patient landed.  NCHS will use the information collected to classify
      the cause of the injury using the International Classification of
      Diseases, Supplementary Classification of External Causes of Injury and
      Poisoning codes (ICD-9-CM E-codes).
   ITEM 16 - PHYSICIAN'S DIAGNOSES
   This is one of the most important items on the Patient Record form.  
   Item 16-1 refers to the physician's primary diagnosis for this visit.
   While the diagnosis may be tentative, provisional, or definitive it
   should represent the physician's best judgment at this time, expressed in
   acceptable medical terminology including "problem" terms.    
   If a patient appears for postoperative care (follow up visit after
   surgery), the physician should record the postoperative diagnosis as well
   as any other.  The postoperative diagnosis should be indicated with the
   letters "P.O."
   Space has been allotted for two "other" diagnoses.  In Items 16-2 and   
   16-3 the physician should list other conditions related to this visit or
   to the choice of treatment or medications ordered or provided for the
   patient at this time.  Include chronic conditions (e.g. hypertension,
   depression, etc.) if related to this visit.
   ITEM 17 - DIAGNOSTIC/SCREENING SERVICES
   The physician should mark all services 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 physical exam, several of
   the services may be ordered or provided.  EACH SERVICE SHOULD BE MARKED.
   If services were ordered or provided but are not listed, mark the 
   "All other" box and specify in the spaces provided.
   If no Examinations, Tests and Measurements, or Imaging were ordered or 
   provided, instruct the physician to check the "None" box.
   ITEM 18 - THERAPEUTIC AND PREVENTIVE SERVICES
   Counseling/Education - Instruct the physician to check ALL appropriate 
   boxes for any of the following types of counseling, advice, education, 
   instructions, or recommendations to the patient that were provided or 
   ordered during the visit:

   related to medications.  Includes referrals to other health professionals,
   for example, dietitians and nutritionists.
   Exercise - any topics related to the patient's physical conditioning or 
   fitness.  Examples include information aimed at general health promotion 
   and disease prevention and information given to treat or control a specific 
   medical condition.  Includes referrals to other health and fitness
   professionals.  Does not include referrals for physiotherapy.  
   Physiotherapy ordered or provided at the visit is listed as a separate 
   check box under "Other Therapy."
   HIV/STD transmission - information intended to help the patient understand 
   how HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) or STDs (sexually transmitted
   diseases) are transmitted.  Includes topics such as "safe sex," IV drug 
   use, and exchange of bodily fluids.

   assist in conception or intended to help the patient understand how to
   prevent conception.
   Prenatal instructions - information given to the mother during her entire
   pregnancy on the growth and development of her unborn child and its
   chances for survival and good health after birth.  Includes information
   about the mother's dietary intake, her weight, other factors affecting the
   unborn child such as alcohol and certain drugs taken by the mother during
   pregnancy, and diseases that increase the risk of obstetrical 
   complications such as diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, kidney
   disease, and anemia.
   Breast self-exam - information given to the patient instructing her 
   when and how to perform a simple self-examination of the breasts.
   Tobacco use/exposure - information given to the patient on issues related 
   to tobacco use in any form, including cigarettes, cigars, snuff, and 
   chewing tobacco, and on the exposure to tobacco in the form of "secondhand 
   smoke."  Includes information on smoking cessation as well as 
   prevention of tobacco use.  Includes referrals to other health 
   professionals for smoking cessation programs.
   Growth/development - any topics related to human growth and development.
   Mental health - general advice or counseling about mental health issues; 
   education about mental disorders.  Includes referrals to other mental

   through exercise, biofeedback, yoga, etc.  Includes referrals to other
   health professionals for the purpose of stress coping mechanisms.   
   Skin cancer prevention - information intended to help the patient 
   understand strategies for reducing exposure to the sun and its effects.
   Includes information on sunbathing and the use of sunscreens.
  
   Injury prevention - any topic aimed at minimizing the chances of injury 
   in one's daily life. May include issues as diverse as drinking and driving, 
   child safety, avoidance of injury through proper techniques for various 
   physical activities, etc.
   Other - any counseling involving a current or potential health problem 
   that is not listed in any of the other check boxes.
   Other therapy - Instruct the physician to check all appropriate boxes for 
   therapeutic services (excluding medication) ordered or performed.  
   Examples include:
   Psychotherapy - All treatments involving the intentional use of verbal 
   techniques to explore or alter the patient's emotional life in order to 
   effect symptom reduction or behavior change.

   medicinal techniques to explore or alter the patient's emotional life in
   order to effect symptom reduction or behavior change.
   Physiotherapy - Any form of physical therapy including treatments using 
   heat, light, sound, or physical pressure or movement.  For example, 
   ultrasonic, ultraviolet, infrared, whirlpool, diathermy, cold and 
   manipulative therapy.
   All specific forms of medication are excluded because that information is 
   collected in item 20.
   If services were ordered or provided, but are not listed, mark the "Other"
   box and specify in the spaces provided.
   If none of these services were ordered or provided, instruct the physician
   to check the "None" box.
   ITEM 19 - AMBULATORY SURGICAL PROCEDURES
   Instruct the physician to record the specific name of up to two 
   ambulatory surgical procedures actually performed at this visit.  
   Routine surgical procedures (e.g. wound care) as well as more complex 
   procedures (e.g. cataract extraction, vasectomy, hernia repair, 
   growth removal, etc.) should be reported.  Any procedure
   designated in the ICD-9-CM Volume 3 (which the physicians and their 
   staffs will be familiar with) as a surgical procedure may be recorded.
   Diagnostic surgical procedures such as biopsy should also be recorded.
   If no surgical procedures were performed, instruct the physician to check 
   the "None" box.
   ITEM 20 - 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.  Medication, broadly defined, includes the specific name of any:   
   * prescription and nonprescription medication;
   * injections;
   * vaccinations;
   * immunizations and allergy shots;
   * anesthetics;                                                                               
   * drugs and medications which the doctor ordered or provided prior to 
     this visit and instructs or expects the patient to continue taking 
     regardless of whether a refill is provided at the time of visit.
   Be sure you give the following instructions to the doctor:
   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," 
   "analgesic," "antacid," "birth control pill," or "antibiotics."  The one                                                  
   exception is "allergy shot."
   Limit entries to drug name only.  Additional information, such as dosage 
   strength or regimen is not required.  For example, the medication might 
   be in the form of pills, injections, salves, or ointments, drops, 
   suppositories, powders, or skin patch, but this information should not be 
   entered on the PRF.
   Check the box to the left of drug name if it is from the patient's
   insurance formulary list.  If none of the medications prescribed or
   provided are from the patient's insurance formulary list, check the
   appropriate box.   
   If no medication was prescribed or provided, the physician should 
   indicate by marking the "None" box.   
   There is room for only 6 medications on the NAMCS PRF (one on each line). 
   When more than 6 are administered, provided, or ordered, use the following
   guide:
   List first those administered during the visit; list second those provided,
   list third those ordered; list fourth those continued until the 6 spaces 
   are completed (only one entry per line).  If this order is not known or 
   cannot be determined (eg. when data are abstracted), list the first 6
   medications in the order given in the record.
   ITEM 21 - PROVIDERS SEEN THIS VISIT
   Mark all providers seen during this visit.  If care was provided, at least
   in part, by a person not represented in the seven categories, mark the 
   "Other" box.
   ITEM 22 - TIME SPENT WITH PHYSICIAN
   Include here the entire time the sample physician spent with the patient.
   DO NOT include the time patient spent waiting to see the doctor or
   receiving care from someone other than the doctor.  For example, the
   nurse gave the patient an inoculation, or a technician administered an
   electrocardiogram.  It is entirely possible that for visits such as these,
   the patient would not see the doctor at all. In that case, "0" minutes
   should be entered in Item 22.
   DO NOT include time spent on the patient but not with the patient, such
   as time spent reviewing the patient's medical records or test results 
   before seeing the patient.
   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/she should record
   that on the Patient Record Forms.  If the doctor cannot estimate how much 
   time was spent with each, he or she 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/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 or expected to continue the 
  medication.
PATIENTS
  In-scope -- All patients seen by the physician or members of his/her staff 
  in the 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.
                                
PHYSICIANS
  In-Scope --  All duly licensed doctors of medicine and doctors of 
  osteopathy currently in practice who have regularly scheduled time for 
  seeing 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 who are federally employed or who are 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 spend no time seeing ambulatory patients.
  Physician specialty -- Principal specialty (including general practice) 
  as designated by the physician at the time of the survey.  Those 
  physicians for whom a specialty was not obtained were assigned the 
  principal specialty recorded in the Master Physician files maintained by 
  the AMA or AOA.
  Region of practice location -- The four geographic regions which 
  correspond to those used by the U.S. Bureau of the Census, are as follows:
