NACRS Pick-Lists and Value Sets  Core

The NACRS pick-lists and value sets are standardized short-lists used to collect and report presenting complaint, diagnosis and intervention information on emergency department visits. These documents are for use with the National Ambulatory Care Reporting System (NACRS).

The NACRS pick-lists and value sets include the following:

  • CEDIS Presenting Complaint List (PCL): Developed by the Canadian Emergency Department Information System (CEDIS) Working Group, this list includes common symptoms, complaints, problems and reasons for seeking medical care.
  • Canadian Emergency Department Diagnosis Shortlist (CED-DxS): This includes more than 800 diagnoses in common terms, which are mapped to ICD-10-CA codes.
  • Emergency Department Intervention Value Set (EDVS): Added to eStore in 2022–2023, this list contains more than 170 interventions in common terms and their associated CCI codes.

Note: PDF versions dating back to 2012–2013 are available upon request. The CED-DxS was updated in 2019–2020 and 2020–2021 to include COVID-19 codes.

FAQ

The price you pay for an item depends on the type of organization to which you belong. Until you sign in, we do not know which price applies to you.

No. Regardless of the language in which the publication itself is available, the series screen provides a general description of the publications in that series and, for each edition, gives you the option of choosing the language and the media type (for example, paper or PDF) of the publication that you want. CIHI often publishes reports in both English and French, though there is sometimes a delay between the publication of the English version and the availablility of the French version. The series information will always be available in both English and French, even if the report itself is only available in one language.

If you want the downloadable version of an available publication and the price is free, as is often the case, you can simply download the file (usually a PDF) by clicking the Download link. If your browser does not support PDFs and you do not have a PDF viewer, you can download Adobe Acrobat Reader free of charge at Adobe.com. If the publication is not available in a downloadable media type or the price is not free, you will have to add it to your cart so that you can order it. You must be signed in before adding an item to your cart, so if you have not already done so, you will be redirected to the sign in screen.

If you wish to get more information about a publication before deciding to add it to your cart, click the View link under the Details column for the version of the publication that interests you. This will give you more detailed information about that particular publication.

The History link only appears on the top menu bar once you have signed in. To sign in, enter your username and password in the top-right corner of your screen.
