Every CYP202 care activity record must have an associated CYP201 care contact record included in a submission file.
A separate CYP202 care activity record should be submitted for each separate care activity that has taken place. See above for the difference in requirements for tier 2 and 3 weight management services. Each care activity record should be represented by a single specific SNOMED CT code, which can be submitted in one of the following 3 data items depending on the type of activity that has taken place:
- CODED PROCEDURE (CLINICAL TERMINOLOGY) – to capture SNOMED CT procedure type codes
- CODED FINDING (CODED CLINICAL ENTRY) – to capture SNOMED CT finding type codes
- CODED OBSERVATION (CLINICAL TERMINOLOGY) – to capture SNOMED CT observable entity type codes
Specific SNOMED CT codes that are considered relevant for the NOA have been detailed against the relevant data item below.
CARE ACTIVITY IDENTIFIER
This is a mandated data item; the record will be rejected if it is not included within this group.
The unique identifier for a CARE ACTIVITY.
It would normally be automatically generated by the local system upon recording a new activity, although could be manually assigned.
Where multiple systems are used it is acceptable to include a prefix to the Care Activity Identifier, which relates to the system. The prefix enables each identifier to remain truly unique for all submissions from an organisation.
Duplicate Care Activity Identifiers within the CYP202 group will cause all associated records to be rejected.
CARE PROFESSIONAL LOCAL IDENTIFIER
This data item is required for submission by Tier 3 WMS providers. This data item can be used for linkage to the CYP901 Staff Details group in order to report the profession of the individual providing the care contact.
A number or set of characters which uniquely identifies a CARE PROFESSIONAL within a healthcare provider and may be assigned automatically by the IT system.
Where multiple Care Professionals are involved in a single Care Activity, a ‘lead’ Care Professional should be allocated to the Care Activity. There is no requirement to duplicate records for a single Care Activity for each involved Care Professional.
CODED FINDING (CODED CLINICAL ENTRY)
The following SNOMED CT codes are relevant for the local authority commissioned tier 2 weight management services ONLY:
77386006 |Pregnant (finding)|
A separate list of relevant SNOMED CT codes has been included in the CYP601 Medical History section of this guidance document (again relevant to local authority commissioned tier 2 weight management services only).
For patients who are prescribed a low (or very low) calorie diet by the Tier 3 services this should be recorded in this section using SNOMED code: 77806000 |Calorie restricted diet (finding)|
