Question: Newborn Admission Source allowable values 1 and 2

The decision point(s) in PC-04 for Newborn Admission Source do not address the use of allowable values 1 and 2 for the Newborn Admission data element. Is the first decision point for Newborn Admission Source on page 44, after the H connector missing the right side of the branch which would assign values 1 and 2 to Category B? Please refer to attached pdf file.

Answer:

The algorithm flow is correct. According to Initial Patient Population flow, only Newborn Admission Source = 3,4 or missing patients are in the Newborns with BSI sub-pop and flowed into PC-04 measure. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
