Common Formats for Event Reporting - Hospital Version 1.2

Common Formats for Event Reporting - Hospital Version 1.2 (CFER-H V1.2) incorporates new content and technical specifications developed after the release of Common Formats for Event Reporting - Hospital Version 1.1 (CFER-H V1.1) in March 2010. There were two significant changes to areas of content in CFER-H V1.2. The event-specific Device module was modified to include data elements for collection of patient safety concerns related to health information technology (HIT) devices (e.g., the electronic health record). The second major area of clinical content change added an event-specific module for Venous Thromboembolism (VTE). In addition to the new clinical content, RxNorm identifiers and compatibility with ICD-9 and ICD-10-CM coding has been included in CFER-H V1.2.
