This field is a summary of the distinct intended management codes a participant has had recorded in their hospital inpatient records. The intended management of a patient is their planned duration of hospital stay, i.e. whether an overnight stay was anticipated or not.
Note that the original information was obtained from a variety of external sources, some of which used overlapping and contradictory coding schemes. The values in this field can therefore only be interpreted when the source of the items is known (see Field 41253) using the source-specific codings Data-Coding 209 and Data-Coding 260. It is recommended that the re-coded Field 41244 is used instead of this one.
This field corresponds to the field INTMANAG on the HESIN table; see the Inpatient Data Dictionary (Resource 141140) in Category 2000 for information about the HESIN table.
In order to conduct detailed analyses of this data using the source information, researchers will need to gain access to the HESIN table by adding Field 41259 to their basket.
