Problem and suggestion

The Norwegian modification for patient addmitted to hospital and discharged the same day will be revised (DD## DRG's)

These DRGs are meant to be rest groups mostly containing emergency cases in which the patient for medical reasons is treated as an inpatient but without staying overnight.

Some groups are combined. All new groups are given codes like 980? And new names. Some changes are made to other DRGs (i.e. endoscopy DRGs) so that these DRGs collect cases instead of the DD-DRGs. A new DRG for palliative care is introduced.

A new principal diagnosis property (pdgprop 40P80) for common same day emergency conditions is introduced as a new grouping criteria. This list is for the most empirical (based on frequency of conditions within same day emergency cases) and will be revised after testing of the PL0 version.

Cases not fulfilling this criteria will be assigned to a rest group 981X. This rest group will contain all former DD## cases not regrouped to other DRGs (including cases erroneously registered as inpatient instead of outpatient cases).

The dg changes for the 40P80 pdgprop are specified in a separate sheet in the Excel workbook, but can be handled along with all other dg changes.
