Frequently Asked Questions

Q:What is the 10/1/96 mandate and how does PCE fit into it?

A:The Veterans Health Administration has determined that it must have adequate, accurate, and timely information about each ambulatory care encounter/service provided in order to enhance patient care and to manage our health care resources into the future. Effective October 1, 1996, VHA facilities are required to report each ambulatory encounter and/or ancillary service. Provider, procedure, and diagnosis information is included in the minimum data set that will be reported to the National Patient Care Data Base (NPCDB). The Ambulatory Data Capture Project (ADCP) was formed to coordinate the various VISTA packages involved in meeting this mandate.

Patient Care Encounter (PCE) ensures that every encounter has an associated provider(s), procedure code(s), and diagnostic code(s), in accordance with this mandate.
