Description

National ID: C449
Initiated: 2014-12-08
Initiator: Ralph Dahlgren

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Problem
While doing work concerning DRG E84O Kärlfysiologiska undersökningar (Former DRG 791 Vascular Physiological studies) NPK discovered that two of the procedure codes that have the grouping property 05V10 Examination of circulatory physiology are very small compared to the other with the same property.

The procedure codes are:
FXF106 'Orthostatic test' (AF074 Ortostatiskt prov)
QXFX00 'Measurement of skin temperature' (AQ008 Hudtemperaturmätning)

These codes are valid for single use (no property 00S99) but they will not affect DRG assignment in any way.

Analysis
The Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare 2014-12-08
None is needed

Suggestion
The Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare 2014-12-08
Technical change
The grouping property 05V10 are removed from the two procedure codes.
DRG change
Cases with only the two interventions will no longer group to DRG E84O but instead group to a variation of DRG with professional groups instead in open care. Inpatients will not be affected.

This case only affects NordDRG SWE. It is obviously reasonable.
