Acknowledgement to Taina Valone, RHIA, CTR, for identifying these data quality issues.
Reminder: The following Hematopoietic Diseases below became reportable in 1/1/2001. If a case with any of the diagnoses below is encountered at your facility,
but originally diagnosed prior to 1/1/2001, the case is not reportable. We have been seeing a few of these entities being reported recently. These cases are identified and deleted in the Eureka database.
Historic Volume I, Section II.1.8 Newly Reportable Hematopoietic Diseases (NRHD)
For 1/1/2001 to 1/1/2010
Newly Reportable Hematopoietic Diseases (NRHD) are defined as any of the myeloproliferative or myelodysplastic diseases that changed behavior from /1 borderline to /3 malignant in ICD-O-3.
Abstract and report only NRHD cases diagnosed 1/1/2001 forward.
If disease is known prior to 2001, do not report the case. NRHD cases diagnosed prior to 1/1/2001 undergoing active treatment at your facility are not reportable cases.
