As developed by the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), the ASA Physical Status Classification is a six-category system for assessing health and fitness of patients prior to anesthesia/surgery1.
This collation uses the Emergency Status collation value and maps it to a “Yes” (1) or a “No” (0) response. Yes (1) indicates that the case was listed as Emergency Status, a No (0) indicates it was not. If the value is invalid (does not fit emergent documentation) it returns “Invalid” (-998). If there are multiple valid documented values a “Conflicting” (-997) is returned. Missing documentation is returned “Missing” (-999). A NULL may be returned if the note is available but has yet to be mapped.
This collation can accompany the ASA Class (cleaned) collation to return a numerical ASA Classification and the traditional alpha “E” notation in the form of this collation’s Yes/No (1/0) response.
