APCD Encounter ID Methodology Enhancements

Often times, there is a series of claims for the same inpatient stay, which vary across multiple care settings (Emergency Room->IP Admission -> others –>Continued IP stay). Instead of only generating a single encounter activity to the inpatient facility, these different activities were often generating a claim and an encounter.

This methodology has been enhanced to allow for closer alignment with how these encounters are grouped based on our knowledge with the state data.
