This form should look familiar—it's basically the same form we used in Lesson 2 to create web records.

A View Errors in New Window
If you want to refer to the error flag listing while you work on the record, click View Errors in New Window to display the error flag listing in a pop-up window.
B Error Flag Listing
Provides a list of error flags (red) and warning flags (blue).

Error Flags (red): When determining if your data is above, at, or below the edit program's established ETL, MIRCal counts the number of records with errors. If there are any errors within a record, the record will be counted toward the ETL.

Warning Flags (blue): Identify potential errors and are not counted toward the ETL. However, you should review the warnings and make sure your data is correct.

C Correction Checkboxes
Use these checkboxes to keep track of the types of corrections you've made. Remember the Reviewed: S, V, and K columns on the records listing page? When you mark a checkbox on this page, an “X” is displayed in the appropriate column on the records listing page. When you (or another user) come back to make more corrections, you'll be able to see which types of corrections have already been made.

Make sure you review every occurrence of a certain type of error in a record before you mark the checkbox for that error type.

D Error Flags
An error or warning code appears next to the incorrect field. Match the code to it's description in the error flag listing at the top of the form. The first letter in an error flag indicates which edit program identified the error: S for Standard, V for Coding, or K for Re-Admission.

To make corrections:

  1. Correct the fields with error flags.

    The error flag listing includes all Standard, Coding, and Re-Admission Edit errors so that you can correct them all at the same time.

Review every field that has the same type of error flag (all S, V, or K). You may not need to correct every error flag. Some of these may be relational errors where only one of the data elements needs correction.

  1. Mark the appropriate correction checkbox for the type of error you corrected.
  2. Click Save Corrections.

In the example, Jane's record contains an error flag for the Type of Care and the Discharge Date. The record also contains a warning flag for the Admission Date and Discharge Date fields. We're going to assume she corrects these errors, marks the Corrected Standard Edits (S) checkbox, and is ready to save the record.

To continue, click Save Corrections.
