Episode Procedure Category

A mutually exclusive categorization of a patient's procedures in 3M's Clinical Risk Grouping software. Procedure-based EPCs are seldom used except for (1) creating certain EDCs, recognizing disease states implied by the EPC, (2) eliminating certain EDCs, recognizing that the EPC is intended to remove or cure a disease state, and (3) contributing to the severity level assignment for some EDCs.
