Case #120

Updated by Martti Virtanen about 5 years ago

*Martti will update this further before meeting.*

While doing manual checkup I detected that diagnoses (asterisk codes) in the groups M091 ‘Juvenile arthritis in Crohn's disease’ and M092 ‘Juvenile arthritis in ulcerative colitis’ belong to the complication category 18C10 ‘Other meningococcal infections’ which is obviously wrong. The correct complication category is 08C10 ‘Complicated rheumatoid arthritis’
The effect is only on the exclusion list i.e. which are the diagnoses these diagnoses cannot complicate.
The complication exclusion membership must also be changed from 18C10 to 08C10 for all the diagnosis at issue.

Technical change:

Complication category of M0910 and M0920 (ICD+ codes) and all related codes will be changed from 18C10 to 08C10. The exclusion of these codes will also be changed from 18C10 to 08C10.

DRG change:
Minimal. Theoretically some cases may change from CC to non-CC groups or wice versa because of correction of the error.
