#CaseIdentifier of the stay
AnalysisContext of the stay (only one: G>F>E>D>C>H>B>A).
A: Back to home, without further potentially avoidable readmission, justified stay
B: Idem, more or less justified stay
C: Back to home, with a further potentially avoidable readmission
D: Death
E: Transfer to another hospital (variable 1.5.V03 “Stay after discharge” = 4,5,6,44,55,66). If this variable is not specified (value = 9), the stay is allocated to this category if the patient was transferred to another hospital for another stay.
F: Waiting for nursing home bed (variable 1.2.V02 “Stay before admission” different than 3 and 4; variable 1.5:V03 “Stay after discharge” = 2 or 3)
G: Candidate for one day surgery
H: Unjustified stay

Comments: - the specialty corresponds to the medical competence mainly involved;
- the mission corresponds to the type of hospital care: academic (university hospital), specialized (intensive care, interventional medicine, specialized surgery, current or ambulatory care, split by specialty;
- specialties and missions are not always the same depending on the age (<16 years old for pediatrics for instance).
