Lesson 4: Correcting Errors
In this lesson, we will walk through correcting some of the types of errors that might cause MIRCal to reject your data.

Before you start making corrections, you need to:

  1. Log on to MIRCal (see Accessing MIRCal in Module 2: Basics for All Users).
  2. Create the same reporting profile you used when you submitted your data (see Create a Reporting Profile in this module, Lesson 1).
  3. Determine which edit programs your data failed (see View an Error Summary in this module, Lesson 3).
  4. Print the edit program Error Reports for the programs your data failed (see View and Print Error Reports in this module, Lesson 3).

Learning Objectives
By the end of this lesson, you should be able to:

  • Identify the errors in your data and determine the best way to correct them
  • Correct errors online in MIRCal
  • Submit your corrections to OSHPD

Scenario
Jane works at CBT2, a large hospital in Central California. Following the submission process described in Lesson 1, she submitted an ED data file to OSHPD as a test submission. In Lesson 3, she retrieved her submission results and found that her data was rejected because it failed the Standard Edit program and there is a record with a blank or invalid Principal Diagnosis. She printed the Standard Edit error report, and that is where this lesson begins.
