Health Care Facility Utilization and Hospital Discharge Data Submission Requirements - OAR 409-022

Need for Amendment:  Senate Bill 23 (Oregon Laws 2019) authorized the collection of emergency department discharge data from general acute care hospitals in Oregon. OAR 409-022-0010, and 409-022-0020 are being amended to include a definition of emergency department discharge data and a required data element list. Hospitals have been submitting emergency department discharge data to Apprise Health Insights since 2014. Rule changes will not affect day-to-day operations.
