General Information
Action Summary Chapter 552 of the 2021 Acts of Assembly Special Session I Item 307(D1) requires inpatient hospitals to report the admission source of any individuals meeting the criteria for voluntary or involuntary psychiatric commitment as outlined in § 16.1-338, 16.1-339, 16.1-340.1, 16.1-345, 37.2-805, 37.2-809, or 37.2-904, Code of Virginia, to the Board of Health (“the Board”). The Board shall collect and share any and all data regarding the admission source of individuals admitted to inpatient hospitals as a psychiatric patient, pursuant to Va.Code § 32.1-276.6, with the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) through the addition of a new legal status field. The new field will be included in the patient-level data that DBHDS receives from Virginia Health Information (VHI.) The existing list of information from that Code section does not include criteria for voluntary or involuntary psychiatric commitment, accordingly the creation of a new legal status field is required. The Board is using this action to conform to the requirements in Item 307 (D1).
