Provider Encounter Counts
This report provides the number of PCE outpatient encounters within an encounter date range, by provider. The user specifies report selection criteria and then chooses either a summary report or detailed report.
The report can be generated using a number of different selection criteria:
Facilityenter the names or numbers of the facilities whose encounters will be included in the report.
Encounter Date Rangeonly encounters that fall within the specified date range are used to generate the report.
Service Categoryonly encounters with the specified service category or categories are used to generate the report. This defaults to "AI" for Ambulatory encounters and clinic encounters where the patient had an inpatient status.
Provider criteria can specify All Providers with encounters, Primary Providers with encounters, Selected Providers, or Selected Person Classes.
Providersonly encounters where one of the encounter providers is the same as one of the providers selected are used to generate the report.
Primary Providersonly encounters where one of the encounter providers is designated as a Primary provider are used to generate the report.
Person classonly encounters where one of the encounter providers has the same person class as one of the person classes selected are used to generate the report.
Person class selection is based on the PERSON CLASS file, used to support Ambulatory Care Reporting. Person Class entries are composed of three pieces:

The legend for the service categories is included on the top of the report. For example, if on a particular day the provider had three ambulatory encounters and two telecommunications encounters, the string would be "AT" and the number of encounters would be five.
The summary report lists the total number of encounters for each provider.
