HOSPITAL PROVIDER SPELL IDENTIFIER is the same as attribute ACTIVITY IDENTIFIER.

HOSPITAL PROVIDER SPELL IDENTIFIER is a unique identifier for each Hospital Provider Spell for a Health Care Provider.

Note that the HOSPITAL PROVIDER SPELL IDENTIFIER must be constructed without the use of PATIENT Confidential Information. This includes PATIENT Identifiers such as NHS NUMBER or LOCAL PATIENT IDENTIFIER, as well as any text which may identify the PATIENT DIAGNOSIS of the PATIENT or any PATIENT procedures being undertaken.

HOSPITAL PROVIDER SPELL IDENTIFIER is used by the Secondary Uses Service to derive the Healthcare Resource Group 4. Failure to correctly populate this data element is likely to result in an incorrect Healthcare Resource Group, usually associated with lower levels of healthcare resource.

For further information, please refer to the NHS Digital website at: Payment by Results Guidance.

HOSPITAL PROVIDER SPELL NUMBER will be replaced with HOSPITAL PROVIDER SPELL IDENTIFIER, which is the most recent approved national information standard to describe the required definition.
