Error corrected

Initiated: 2012-03-02

By: Sweden


CPK ID: 418

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.

Nordic Casemix Centre (NCC) thought that this group was meant for all ages but that was a misunderstanding. According to the Swedish CC project this group is only for grown-ups, exactly like the other D31 groups.

Correction: In the rule for DRG D31A, the value >6574 must be inserted in the field AGELIM. The DRG text must also be corrected. The full text shall be: “Infektioner & inflammationer i andningsorganen, >17 år, mycket komplicerat” and the short text shall be: “Inf & inflam andningsorg >17 M”.

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


This change concerns only Sweden.

The case will beclosed
