Attached is the complete table of procedures properties differences between the countries.
The columns COM, DEN, EST, FIN, ICE, LAT, NOR and SWE (‘presence value’ for each version) indicate whether the property of the code is in use in the version at issue (value TRUE) or not (value UNTRUE). All differences from the COM version value are reported in the table. They have value TRUE for the variable PROBLEM.
Empty code place (CODE_COM, CODE_DEN, CODE_EST…) indicates that the code exists but the property does not exist in that version. ‘No code’ indicates that the code does not exist in the national version at issue. In these situations the presence value is always the same as for COM to make possible correct assignment of PROBLEM variable.
The column NOTE gives an explanation of the problem at issue. The NOTE of the obvious errors is red. These cases are not separate reported. Others are reported as cases on the NordDRG forum.
This case is represented as general information. Errors will be corrected but have minimal effect on DRG assignment.
Specially the addition of specific national properties to all national versions serves only technical purposes. The only practical consequence is that this makes possible to run comparative analysis on different national versions with data from any of the countries in the NordDRG collaboration.

The proposal for this case is only that corrections marked with red in the excel table should be changed and this is a minor change.
The other changes are defined by separate cases listed in attachment to this case.

For the 135 rows in table procdiffprob differences in national codes.xlsx that are not linked to any other case (marked with red note column) the properties will be corrected as instructed in the note.
Mostly no effect at all. Some errors are corrected and may have minor effects on grouping.
