The maximum number of ORGAN SYSTEMS SUPPORTED on any one day during a CRITICAL CARE PERIOD. Each organ system can only be counted once on any calendar day. Both basic and advanced categories cannot be counted at the same time. The number of organ systems supported can be between 00 to 07, although for the purposes of recording on the Commissioning Data Set messages Gastro-intestinal support days are not recorded so the maximum is effectively 06.
This is derived by counting the maximum number of ACTIVITY PROPERTIES where the ORGAN SYSTEM SUPPORTED is different, for each day of the CRITICAL CARE PERIOD and reporting the highest number. Each ACTIVITY PROPERTY will have one or more ACTIVITY PROPERTY EFFECTIVE DATES and ACTIVITY PROPERTY END DATES within the CRITICAL CARE PERIOD. Both basic and advanced categories cannot be counted at the same time therefore the maximum number of systems supported is 7.
