The contacts grouped to DRG 923O is heterogeneous and the DRG do not give a good description of the health care. In addition to this, contact with other healthcare groups than doctor, dentist or psychologist will not be included in the activity based funding as it is designed in Norway at the moment.

We therefore want to move well described health care groups out of DRG 923O if possible. We will start with cases with desensitization to allergens. This group of patients will be moved from different DRG’s to a new DRG 823T Desensitization to allergens in MDC 40.

DRG change
Cases will move from different DRGs (inclusive DRG 923O) to a new DRG 823T Desensibilisering mot allergener (MDC 40).

Technical change
WGGM00 Hyposensibilisering and WGGM05 Hurtigsensibilisering get a new PROCPR 90O04 Desensitization to allergens. This will be the criteria for DRG 823T. Regelen vil legges inn mellom eksisterende ORD 124D00003 og 124D000013.

This case came too late to be discussed at the Expert group meeting 2016.
However, it affects only Norwegian version of NordDRG.
Technical changes shows the COM-level changes that are even more simple than national level. The new property is not used by the other versions of NordDRG and does therefore not affect any other version.
The case will remain further active to allow commenting by other countries.

Norway has made the change in the national version.
However, since the case affects other contries, this need a further discussion.
