Example 2 - Completion Notification (BHT02 = 14)

A completion notification advises the notification receiver that an authorized patient event has occurred. For example, the UMO may require the facility to return a notification of admission when it admits the patient. The UMO may also require notification when the facility discharges the patient, notice of discharge. The following example demonstrates the use of the notice of admission to advise the UMO that the patient, whose admission was pre-authorized, has been admitted.

Transmission Explanation


The REF segment identifies the previous certification identifier (the value of HCR02) assigned to the admission review previously authorized. The DTP segment identifies the actual date of admission (DTP01 = 435).

When the facility discharges the patient, it sends another completion notification to notify the UMO of the discharge. Loop 2000E of the discharge notification is identical to the notice of admission with the exception of the DTP segment. On a discharge notice, DTP01 has the value "096" to indicate a discharge date.
