Problem
Sweden wants to change the names of the DRGs M29O/E/C/A 'Andra njur & urinvägsoperationer, öppenvård, öppenvård, ej komplicerat, kommplicerat, mycket komplicerat' (315O 'Other kidney & urinary tract o. r. procedures, short therapy')

The name does not quite correspond to the content of the DRG. There are many procedures that may be eligible for problems in MDC 11 but without being operations on the urinary system.

Analysis
The Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare – 2015-01-16
There is no need for analysis.

Suggestion
The Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare – 2015-01-16

The names of the DRGs M29O/E/C/A 'Andra njur & urinvägsoperationer, öppenvård, ej komplicerat/komplicerat/mycket komplicerat' are changed to “Andra operationer vid njur- och urinvägsproblem, öppenvård, ej komplicerat/ komplicerat/mycket komplicerat.

Technical change
There is a change of name in the definitiontable “DRG names”.
See excel-file “Decision C520”

DRG change
None.

This is a correction to the terminology in the DRG names. It is valid for all versions and for many surgical rest groups.

'Other xxx operations' is different from 'Other operations on xxx' as pointed out here.
Should they all be corrected? in all versions??

  • Subject changed from Change of name for Swedish DRG M29 to Change of name in NordDRG - 'Other xxx operation' vs 'Other operation on xxx' (Swedish DRG M29)

Martti has a good point but we don´t have the time to go through other DRGs right now so we want only this name to be changed in NordDRG 2016. We will make a new case about the others.

The proposal was accepted. The responsibility to deliver the correct list of national names is with each national organisation. Thus Nordic Casemix Centre expects that all national organisations will deliver corrected DRGnames-tables for the national versions before end of August.
