Hospital Outpatient Visits

SAS Name
HOP_VISITS

This variable is the count of unique revenue center dates (as a proxy for visits) in the hospital outpatient (HOP) setting for the year.

Comments

The CLM_FROM_DT for the first claim associated with the stay must have been in the year of the data file, however it was permissible for the CLM_THRU_DT to have occurred in January of the following year.

ER visits in the HOP setting are counted in this variable (also see HOP_ER_VISITS).
