The State Ambulatory Surgery and Services Databases (SASD) are part of the family of databases and software tools developed for the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP). The SASD include encounter-level data for ambulatory surgeries and may also include various types of outpatient services such as observation stays, lithotripsy, radiation therapy, imaging, chemotherapy, and labor and delivery. The specific types of ambulatory surgery and outpatient services included in each SASD vary by State and data year. All SASD include data from hospital-owned ambulatory surgery facilities. In addition, some States include data from nonhospital-owned facilities.
The State Inpatient Databases (SID) are State-specific files that contain all inpatient care records in participating states. Together, the SID encompass more than 95 percent of all U.S. hospital discharges. The uniform format of the SID helps facilitate cross-state comparisons. In addition, the SID are well suited for research that requires complete enumeration of hospitals and discharges within geographic areas or states.
