Q:

I have a data modeling question regarding patient diagnosis and hospital procedures that I can’t get to work. Each patient can have up to 10 diagnoses and 10 procedures per stay. I need to build a data mart that allows the user to count the number of times a procedure occurred for all patients within any of the 10 recordings for any diagnosis combination. I tried a schema that has a Time Dim, Hospital Dim, Dimensions for each diagnosis, Dimensions for each procedure and a count in the measure table for each diagnosis and each procedure.
