BCBSM supports Clinical Data Abstractors (CDAs) at OBI Hospitals to support data collection efforts. OBI Hospital Clinical Data Abstractors will report on NTSV cases.

Overview of OBI Data Abstraction


2019 will serve as a baseline year, where each site will submit a sample of the first 30% of consecutive NTSV cases to OBI for January through December 2019. The OBI Coordinating Center has notified each hospital of their individual OBI required monthly case sample for 2019.


Beginning in 2020, each site will submit up to 100 cases monthly, following the sampling guidance in the table below. Case identification methods, sampling processes, and accuracy of data will be audited by the OBI Coordinating Center on a regular basis to confirm understanding and adherence to these guidelines.
