DAR File No.: 39416
Filed: 06/01/2015 12:51:49 PM
Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:
The purpose of this amendment is to update the version of one document incorporated by reference within Rule R428-1; specifically, Utah Ambulatory Surgical Submittal Manual, Data Element Descriptions and Definitions, Version III, November 2009 should be replaced by Utah Ambulatory Surgery Data Submission Manual, Version IV, March 2015, effective for all ambulatory surgery discharges as 10/01/2015. Clarify data review deadlines where needed to make uniform with requirements in statute.
Summary of the rule or change:
The changes update material incorporated by reference to reflect technical requirements expected for compliance beginning with ambulatory surgical discharges on 10/01/2015. Also, makes minor technical edits.
State statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:
- Title 26, Chapter 33a
This rule or change incorporates by reference the following material:
- Updates Utah Ambulatory Surgery Data Submission Manual, Version IV, March 2015, published by Utah Department of Health, 03/31/2015
Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:
This rule amendment updates the version of technical document for submissions to the Ambulatory Surgical Database. The Utah Department of Health (UDOH) determines enactment of the amended version will not create any cost or savings impact to the state budget or UDOH's budget, since the change will not increase workload and can be carried out with existing budget.
This filing does not create any direct cost or savings impact to local governments since they are not directly affected by the rule; nor are local governments indirectly impacted because the rule does not create a situation requiring services from local governments.
None--Small businesses are not impacted by this rule change, with all potentially impacted having more than 50 employees. As a result, the rule will have no effect on small business budgets for costs or savings.
persons other than small businesses, businesses, or local governmental entities:
Technical changes will not create any cost or savings to businesses, individuals, local governments or persons that are not small businesses.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
The most significant changes are format revisions of required submission elements, where needed, to comply with the federal-required transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10. Other changes have been identified as relatively minor and necessary to ensure usefulness of the data for required reporting. These changes are imperative as part of the ICD-10 conversion process and UDOH will continue to work with data suppliers to minimize the programming requirements. Overall cost to impacted health care facilities in the state--specifically to those currently required to comply with the Ambulatory Surgery Data Submittal Guide listed in R01--will total approximately $300,000 (25 freestanding facilities/systems x $12,000).
Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:
The proposed amendments update the rule to incorporated changes to the Utah Ambulatory Surgical Submittal Manual, Data Element Descriptions and Definitions to Version IV, March 2015. The changes are format revision for required submission elements in the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10. The changes will have a minor one time financial impact to the 25 freestanding facilities that will be required to make programming changes to their reporting systems.
