The Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) released the following database: 2016 Kids’ Inpatient Database (KID). The KID is the largest publicly-available all-payer pediatric inpatient care database in the United States.
The 2016 KID includes a full calendar year of diagnosis and procedure codes reported using the ICD-10-CM/PCS coding system. Data elements derived from AHRQ Software Tools are not available in the 2016 KID because the ICD-10-CM/PCS versions are still under development. For users interested in applying the AHRQ software tools to the ICD-10-CM/PCS data in the 2016 KID, beta versions of the AHRQ software tools are available for download on the HCUP Tools & Software section of the HCUP-US Web site. A tutorial is available to users interested in applying the AHRQ software tools to the 2016 KID at https://www.hcup-us.ahrq.gov/tech_assist/tutorials.jsp.
HCUP nationwide and State-level HCUP databases (including the 2016 KID) are available for purchase through the HCUP Central Distributor. Applications are available at: www.hcup-us.ahrq.gov/tech_assist/centdist.jsp.
