This problem concerns only the Swedish CC-grouper. The error is present both in NordDRG SWE2012CC-SOS and in NordDRG 2012 CC SWE PR1b definition tables.

The texts (full or short) in the following DRGs are wrong. Either they don’t match the logic or they are misspelled. In some cases the short texts are too long (>32 characters) or with the word “öppenvård” that always must be replaced with the letter O. Also MCC and CC must always be replaced with the letters M and K.

The table below shows the right texts. Note that the correction for C21N is needed only if the suggestion to merge C20N and C21N is rejected (Case 2012-MDC03-02).

The corrections are specified in TECHNICAL CHANGES SWE 2012-03-02.xls in the table DRGNAMES.


This change concerns only Sweden.

The case will be closed.
