This data file contains basic record level detail for the discharge. The de-identified data file does not contain data that is protected health information (PHI) under HIPAA. The health information is not individually identifiable; all data elements considered identifiable have been redacted. For example, the direct identifiers regarding a date have the day and month portion of the date removed.

Notes
Discharges that are identified as abortion will have some information redacted; PFI, Facility Name, Health Service Area, Hospital County, Operating Certificate, and all provider license numbers. Patient zip code is limited to the first three digits. However, in cases where the population size for the zip code is less than 20,000, if the cell size on patient classification strata are less than 10, or if the record is an abortion then the zip code is blank. The code “OOS” indicates Out of State zip codes. Patient age is presented in age groups: 0 to 17, 18 to 29, 30 to 49, 50 to 69, and 70 or Older. For years beginning with 2011, the variable indicating the type of insurance expected to pay the discharge has changed. Originally it was the Source of Payment. Effective December 2015, it is now the Payment Typology.
