A short summary from Paulis e-mail is that the cost of DRG 2A and 2B are clearly wrong. The cheap cases of chronic subdural hemorrhage are expensive and the expensive acute cases are cheap.The reason is that the names of DRG’s 2A and 2B have been changed. In the NordDRG COM version the names are:
- DRG 2A ’ Other craniotomy for trauma ’
- DRG 2B ‘Surgery of chronic subdural hematoma’
In the Finish version this is vice versa.
The good news is that the grouper is otherwise correct and the calculations about cost are correct, just the names are wrong. This is obviously not good, because it makes it impossible to understand the results.
For earlier versions (2013 and before) a correction is obviously not possible. The users must be informed about this error.
The names of DRG 2A and 2B are switched in Finnish version 2014
