ICD-plus and NCSP-plus versions for 2018 are now published on this NordDRG Forum as well as on our web page.
They in latest Excel format. If necessary we can deliver older formats or text-format of the files.
For ICD we have got updates from Finland, Sweden and Norway. The changes from Iceland seem to have included in the 2017 version already. Danish updates could be available at the national server.
For NCSP we have got updates from Estonia, Finland, Sweden and Norway. Danish updates could be available at national server.

Sweden as the only country has checked the new codes for the properties they wished to have. The Swedish change document is attached to this task with comments on the few situations that seem to need discussion. The file includes changes to logic and drgnmes that should not be included in this task but we try to remember them in the process. The problems related to mapping are indicated on the sheets for ICD, CSP, dg1 and proc1 with colour marking in the NCC comment column (which can filter by colour).

Please note that the properties the new codes will have in NordDRG are determined by the mapping to the plus version codes. Only codes that are linked to a plus-code that only exists in one country can have any properties. Properties that are used by one (nationa) version only can be added (or removed) freely.

The files have filtration on and one can see the new codes by filtering the USEDATE for 2018 or for any national version by filtering for the similar date (f.ex. USESW) for 2018. The codes that will became invalid at the end of this year can be listed by filtering the RELDATE for 2017 or the corresponding national variable (f.ex. RELSWE) for 2017.

The plus files are under 'Files'

There is a problem with opening NCSP_plus 2018 2017-08-29.xlsx file.
The message received while trying to open the file thru Forum and also NCC webpage is as follows:
“We found a problem with some content in ‘Ncsp_plus 2018 2017-08-29 (3).xlsx. Do you want us to try to recover as much as we can? If you trust the source of this workbook, click Yes.”
This message has appeared also in previous years. It’s not about the older or newer Excel version. It’s something different, probably the corrupted file or something.
Any suggestion what to do?

There was no problem whatsoever with opening the ICD_plus 2018 file.

Unexpectedly, there were made some changes in Finnish NCSP version (as of 1 Sept 2017) and therefore we would be glad to get those changes effective also in NCSP+ ver 2018 and take them into account in FIN 2018 PR version, if possible.
The new and deleted codes and also the codes with text change are in appendix 1. In separate sheet, there is also the complete classification as of 1 Sept 2017.
The file does not contain all the details as they were presented in Swedish file (see above). However, we tried to provide possible mapping between new and current NCSP+ codes. Some details remained open though and if needed, we can have further discussions.
