The Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare (SOS) makes own definition tables parallel to the process at the Nordic Casemix Centre (NCC) and the current problem was discovered during routine comparison between SWE2014CC-SOS-PR02 (SOS version) and SWE2014PR0F (NCC version) in the autumn 2013.

In the updating process for NordDRG 2014 Martti wanted to introduced OR = 2 for the Swedish procedure code GB005 (Självkateteriseringsträning or Self catheterization training). We did not accept that in the SOS version since there had been no discussion or decision about such a change. Martti motivated the change by: “Mapped with DK019 to KXXX90 Urinary incontinence examination and therapy. DK019 has OR=2. No effect on Swedish DRG assignment”.


GB005 is grouped to DRG M77O (Urogenitala åtgärder, resurskrävande, öppenvård) in the Swedish grouper, like DK019 and some other procedures. Common to all procedures grouped to M77O is that they have PROCPRO 11V02 and OR 2, except for GB005 that has no OR. Thus we think that it is logical to add OR 2 to GB005 and this will be done in the SOS version as well. (It is true that the change has no effect on Swedish DRG assignment but we want the SOS version and the NCC version tables to be as consistent as possible).
