Comprehensive Ambulatory Classification System (CACS) RIW and Title Table Core

The CACS grouping methodology for 2010 is based directly on ICD-10-CA and CCI. For 2010, the CACS RIW values have been updated to reflect the most recent Canadian cost data available. The CACS RIW table provides an electronic list of CACS cells and RIW values. The CACS Title Tables provide standard abbreviated and full titles in English and French for all CACS cells found in the CACS Directory, as well as visit disposition and major investigative technology descriptions.

Product Overview: This product consists of four tables. The CACS RIW table includes the CACS code, major investigative technology value, visit disposition value and RIW value. The three title tables include the CACS code, CACS abbreviated and full titles, major investigative technology value and description and visit disposition value and description.

Uses: The CACS RIW table can be used to assign an RIW value to data to which the CACS code has been assigned and where a major investigative technology type has been identified. This table should be used only in conjunction with hospital ambulatory care data collected through NACRS in fiscal year 2010-2011. The RIW values should be used only in conjunction with CACS 2009.

Available: The CACS RIW 2010 table is available in ASCII format for use with 2010 - 2011 NACRS data.

Note: The table is provided under restriction against the creation of multiple copies. Software developers are required to purchase the tables through the Vendor Subscription Service and to sign the Vendor Subscription Licence Agreement.
