ACME and TRANSAX
PC-ACME/TRANSAX is a combination of the ACME and TRANSAX software. This software takes the output from MICAR software and applies underlying cause coding rules to determine the underlying cause. ACME is designed to select the underlying cause even if the conditions are not reported in an acceptable causal sequence. Once all of the records have been passed through ACME, TRANSAX is used to create data appropriate for either record-based analysis or person-based analysis.
