Texas Emergency Department Data

Texas Health Care Information Collection
Center for Health Statistics

The Texas Health Care Information Collection (THCIC) program began collecting Outpatient Emergency Department (ED) data with service dates of January 1, 2015 and later.

The ED data may be found in the Inpatient Public Use Data File (PUDF) and the Outpatient PUDF beginning 1q2015.

ED data contained in the Inpatient PUDF reflect patients admitted for an inpatient stay though the Emergency Department.

ED data contained in the Outpatient PUDF reflect all patient visits in the Emergency Department that were not admitted for an Inpatient stay.

ED data can be identified by the revenue codes 0450-0459 appearing in the Charges file. The Record ID would need to be identified in the Base file. An entire ED set of data will be created at a later time. Also an ED Flag is scheduled for placement in the Inpatient Base file and Outpatient Base file by the 4q2015 release.

Order the Inpatient PUDF at http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/thcic/hospitals/Inpatientpudf.shtm

Order the Outpatient PUDF at http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/thcic/OutpatientFacilities/OutpatientPUDF.shtm

If you have suggestions or comments regarding ED PUDF data, please submit them to THCIC.
