HELP-PROMPT: Enter the first date the set of attributes is effective.

DESCRIPTION: The MDC classification of the Cluster, either Operating Room or Non-Operating Room. The cluster acts as a single Procedure, given that all the cluster procedures are assigned to the record.
An active Cluster Procedure Type attribute overrides the attributes of the individual procedures assigned to the Cluster. If a cluster attribute is Operating Room then OR is applied to the DRG calculation even if all
the procedures assigned to the cluster are Non-Operating Room.
