Definition:

Identifies hospitals that use service codes to identify the number of cases and days designated non-acute, compared to the number of long term Revenue days (chronic care, respite and paneled days) reported to Manitoba Health. If the ratio of the non-acute service code days to long term Revenue days was equal to or greater than 0.7, the decision was made to classify the hospital as a "good coding" hospital.
