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 these groups were meant for all ages but that was a misunderstanding. According to the Swedish CC project the groups are only for grown-ups, exactly like DRG R06E.


In the rules for DRG R06A and R06C, the value >6574 must be inserted in the field AGELIM. The DRG text must also be corrected. The full text shall be: ”Anemi och andra sjukdomar i röda blodkroppar, >17 år, mycket komplicerat” and ”Anemi och andra sjukdomar i röda blodkroppar, >17 år, komplicerat” respectively. The short texts are already correct.

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 be closed.
