The DDR is a three-page summary that lists each data element and the numerical and percentage breakdown of records within each data element category.

Jane compares the number of acute discharges in the DDR to the number in her monthly discharge reports. To see if any records were incorrectly reported as Acute, she reviews the percentages for Skilled Nursing/Intermediate Care and Chemical Dependency types of care. She also compares the current DDR to historical DDR data, looking for questionable increases or decreases in the data element categories.

Although they appear to be accurately reported, she wants to confirm this by reviewing the records reported as Type of Care: Acute and Sex: Male.

When you close the DDR, the Error Reports and Corrections page displays.
