*Problem*

QXXB90 'Vacume treatment of wound'is intoduced in NCSP+ year 2006. Mapped codes exist in FIN TQW11, ICE QXXB90, NOR WLGX20 and LAT WLGX20 in addition to SWE DQ023.
The Swedish procedure code DQ023 was introduced in 2012. QXXB90 is a new code since 20120101. The code already has the Swedish procedure property 09V05 'Minor dermatologic intervention'.
gotten grouping properties. The question out of a clinicall perspective from Sweden is whether the code should also have CC properties.

*Analysis*

Cost data weather it concern the inliers or all case shows that the cases with DQ023 is as a whole more expensive than other cases, particularly the cases in non-complicated DRG. See Appendix for more information.

*Suggestion*

*The Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare and it´s Swedish collaboration partners 2014-01-29*

The suggestion is that DQ023 due to its higher costs should have CC-grouping properties

*Decided changes*

*The Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare and it´s Swedish collaboration partners 2014-01-29*

DQ023 should have CC-grouping properties

*DRG change*

Some cases will be grouped from non-complicated DRG to complicated DRG.

*Technical change*

The way to achieve this is to give DQ023 Vartype CC, Varval 1. See Excel-file +CPK ID 393 Decision+.
