Conference about patient is not a team visit
|Target version:||Expert Group 2016|
|Case type:||Minor||Owner / responsible:||National organisations|
|MDC:||Old forum status:|
The Swedish procedure code XS008 Konferens om patient (Conference about patient) has procedure property 99V22 (Team of care providors) which leads to DRG groups for Team visit (in respective MDC). Since the patient is not present in a conference about patient (in contrast to XS007 Konferens med patient, Conference with patient) it is not right that XS008 leads to DRG-groups for team visit.
This is a matter of medical description, no economical analysis is needed.

We suggest that procprop 99V22 is removed from XS008 Konferens om patient (conference about patient) and that XS008 instead gets the procprop 40V39 (Administration of care) which leads to DRG Z63O Vårdadministrativa åtgärder utan patientkontakt (Health care administrative procedures without patient contact).

The Swedish procedure code XS008 Konferens om patient (Conference about patient) has procedure property 99V22 (Team of care providors) which leads to DRG groups for Team visit (in respective MDC). It should get the procprop 40V39 which would lead to DRG Z63O Vårdadministrativa åtgärder utan patientkontakt (Health care administrative procedures without patient contact).
Procpro 99V22 is removed from the procedure code XS008.
Procpro 40V39 is added to the procedure code XS008.

This is a matter of linkage in NCSP+. Because 'conference' in XS008 indicates several participants I have linked it to ZZZA00 'Team of care providers'. For the resource use, the presence of the patient is quite unimportant I guess.
However, if a change is needed, the code could be mapped to WSZA99 'Other administration' - linkage to it will give the result that was wished.

This case was discussed at the Expert Network meeting 2016-03-14 – 15 and we accepted the mapping proposed by Martti. The file Decisions.xlsx has a name that is too anonymous. It will be replaced by the attached file Decision C621.xlsx.
