This field is a summary of the distinct method of admission codes a participant has had recorded in their hospital inpatient records. Method of admission to hospital identifies how a patient was admitted, e.g. an elective admission from a waiting list or an emergency admission, etc.
Note that the original information was obtained from a variety of external sources, some of which used overlapping and contradictory coding schemes. This field has been re-coded to remove such data conflicts.
This field corresponds to the field ADMIMETH_UNI 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.
