This case concerns only Sweden because it is concerns mostly errors in our ICD and NCSP files. A few other corrections needs to be done, where NDMS are correct and our tables are not.
We have recently found out that alot of our code texts for ICD and NCSP are incorrect, there have been a lot of changes of the texts. There will be other changes in the near future since we have asked our colleagues to switch ';' to something else since ‘semi-colon’ doesn’t work in NDMS texts. They will do that for us so that things will work easier in NDMS. As far as ‘;’ are concerned there will still be one code that has to have it. This is a code shows chromosome deletions. The amount of codes with ‘;’ showing chromosomes deletions will increase when ICD-11 arrives.
Added to that we will add the ATC codes (drug-codes) on 7-positions that you already have in NDMS, but with Swedish text like we have before in our ATC-codes. Sweden have since before the ATC-codes beginning with ‘Q’ in our definition tables. These codes are veterinary drugs and they contains 8-position codes. This means that they have one more position than the regular human drugs ATC-codes. They will be included now due to the fact that the Swedish hospitals have started to use some veterinarian drugs since the regular are noted as ‘not in store’. If I remember correct, you put the seven positions ATC-codes in NDMS this year.
We still keep the five position ATC-codes in our system because they are still valid codes.
This is even later than before and for this reason we suggest that you, the Nordic Casemic Centre, do not do these changes now, better for you to wait until fall when other updates of codes, ICD-10, NCSP and ATC-codes will be done.

No analysis needs to be done. It is only error corrections and does not need any analysis.
Department of Health and Welfare Sweden 2020-05-07
Changes are to be done are in the Excel-file, ‘C842 Fel i 2020 att rätta i 2021PL’, included in the case.
Decided changes
Department of Health and Welfare Sweden 2020-05-07
Sweden will do these changes in our PL version, see reason above. No need to do them in NDMS for now, the Centre can wait until the PR-vesion. Sweden will have updates of new codes in june as always, that will be annother case on Forum later on.
DRG change
There are no unexpected changes since it mainly concerns text changes.
Technical change
There are text changes in ICD. NCSP and new ATC-codes with Swedish texts. Some other changes aswell where NDMS are correct but not the Swedish definitiontables.

We are working on this and make the changes to 2021PR version as latest.
Couple of comments on what has been checked and done so far.
1) compl cat name table/compl cat sheet
The following COMPL categories have been set inactive since they are not used (anymore) in Diagnosis Feature table.
04I17 04X01
04I20 04X01
05I42 04X01
06I18 06X04
08I05 08X01
10I10 19X01
In your TC you also suggested to inactivate COMPL category 06I10 Complicated or bleeding gastric or bowel ulcer (inclprop 06X10). This cannot be inactivated without discussion. This concerns case
Other changes have been made according to proposed TC.

2) dg feat name/dg_categ sheet
DGCAT 25M99 HIV infection has been set inactive in NDMS already earlier, so no change in NDMS

3) gr prop name/dg_prop sheet
Text of 98X99 has been corrected in NDMS already earlier, so no change in NDMS

3) rtc sheet
The Swedish text of RTC 7 has been corrected in NDMS.

The rest (sheets drg name/drg name, dg/icd, proc/nscp, dg feat/dg and proc feat/proc) will be taken care of asap.

  • Status changed from Active to Accepted

Nordic Casemix Centre/Kristiina Kahur 2-10-2020

Following corrections have been made in Swedish tables in addition to ones reported on June 3, 2020
1) drgnames sheet
the names have been corrected according to suggestion

2) proc sheet
The codes which are not valid anymore are not included in proc table anymore.
As for ATC codes, currently the 7-digit ATC codes are not part of NDMS and no properties cannot be added to codes.

3) dg sheet
OUT rows were not in NDMS anymore since the dg codes under question are not valid anymore. Code P917 has correct features in NDMS.
Features of U08 and U09 codes were added.

4) drglogic sheet
The suggested changes were checked and corrected (unless the corrections had been made earlier already)

5) dg and ncsp sheets will be handled separately as it is part of the update of primary classifications. Use of ATC codes will be revised as discussed during Spring and Autumn meeting (see also ticket #690

This ticket can be closed.
