Vaccine Injury Admissions and/or Outpatient with ICD-10 code T50.Z95A

Chris Johnston made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Chris Johnston to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Chris Johnston

Dear Ministry of Health,

Please provide a dataset split by inpatient admission vs outpatient and emergency room which are coded with ICD-10 code T50.Z95A or U12.9 (separately - not combined). This could be generated from the national minimum discharge dataset submitted by NZ hospitals - or similar.

Please aggregate by month (by admission date) for the last 10 years or as long as ICD-10 has been used - whichever is shorter.

Please split by District Health Board of admission/event.

Aggregates should be number events, min stay in days, average length of stay in days, and max length of stay in days.

So the columns expected are:
- ICD-10 code - T50.Z95A or U12.9
- DHB
- Year
- Month
- Event Type - In Patient, ER, Outpatient
- Events
- Min LOS
- Avg LOS
- Max LOS

We would expect LOS for ER and Outpatient only events to be zero but please explain if this is not the case.

Where:
- an Inpatient stay starts with an ER event please count this as an ER event. If this is not possible please count as it comes out of the database and state the methodology / classification used.
- an event is coded as both T50.Z95A and U12.9 please classify this as U12.9.
- an Inpatient event and Outpatient events occur please count these separately.

If you have any queries please ask and clarify as early as possible.

Yours faithfully,

Chris Johnston

Dear OIA Requests,

Thanks for your acknowledgement and response.

Please do not combine my requests. There are a couple of reasons:
1) They are distinct requests with different searches and activities to undertake - and OIA timeframes.
2) The FYI.ORG.NZ website allows other members of the public who search at a later date to find these requests and see the response. Combining different requests frustrates this process and may cause the MoH more work in future as requests are repeated.

Is you do not split them I will be going to the Ombudsman as this is unreasonable and not customer/public centric.

Yours sincerely,

Chris Johnston
