Problem

Our hospitals perform following endoscopic procedures:
JKE00 Transduodenal papillotomy
JKE02 Transduodenal endoscopic incision of common bile duct orifice
JKE06 Transduodenal sphincteroplasty
JKE12 Endoscopic extraction of calculus from bile duct
JKE15 Endoscopic lithotripsy in bile duct
JKE18 Endoscopic insertion of stent into bile duct
JKE22 Endoscopic extraction of foreign body from bile duct
JKE25 Endoscopic external drainage of bile duct
JKE32 Endoscopic dilatation of bile duct
JKE96 Other transduodenal open operation on bile duct or ampulla of Vater
JKE98 Other transduodenal endoscopic operation on bile duct or ampulla of Vater.
´The DRG grouper result is incorrect: DRG 494- Laparoscopic cholecystectomy

NordCase, Martti Virtanen:
The name of the DRG is obviously wrong. It has originally been only laparoscopic interventions, but at some point a few years ago the group has been changed to include also the endoscopic interventions. This is OK since the resource use is similar. Currently the laparoscopic interventions are probably much more rare than the endoscopic.
The Swedish name has been changed but the others seem to be in the original format.
We will change the names for the next version (PR 2016).
The grouping and the DRG-weights are correct.

Suggestion
The of the DRG's must be like in Sweden "Endoscopic or laparoscopiu cholecystectomi..." with the extenstion "with CC" or "w/o CC"
The national organisations are responsible for the adjustment ot the national names.
