Hospital Discharge & Outpatient/ASC Surgery Data Submissions

Inpatient, Outpatient and Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) Submission manuals list the data elements, coding structure and format of the data submission requirements. The preferred method of data submission is to use the Health Care Information secure web site.

Ambulatory Surgery Center

Based on the results of a Survey conducted in August of 2009 to all licensed Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASC), the decision was made to convert data submissions from the fixed length flat file format to the more flexible XML format. XML (Extensible Markup Language) is one of the latest and most effective technologies used to resolve data transfer compatibility issues. Effective 2013, ASC data will be submitted annually in the XML format.

Some of the advantages of moving to a XML format are:

  1. Instant response of file-format errors at the time of data submission
  2. Minimal burden due to future additions or revisions to the data fields.
  3. Minimizes data error and file handling.
  4. Resolves human readability and computer readability by tagging data.
  5. Also XML is the standard data transfer technology of choice for many of HIPAA electronic transmissions.

For submitting 2012 data, please refer to the 2007 or 2011 submission manuals.
