Use different groupers, including MS-DRG versions 32 and 33 and APR-DRG
A tracheotomy APR-DRG
requires an explicit coding of 96+ hour mechanical ventilation and subdivides the DRG based on the presence of an organ removal procedure.
All MedPar data will continue to be severity adjusted by the MS-DRG and 3M APR-DRG
Physicians would receive an incentive distribution if their performance in the demonstration was between the 90th and zsth percentile for the lowest cost of care in that APR-DRG
To control for the hospital's pediatric case mix, we again used the APR-DRG
For more than a year, the State of Maryland has been using the APR-DRG
severity-adjustment system from 3M Health Information Systems as the basis for its all-payer hospital rate-setting system.
Software uses sophisticated clinical logic to classify patients into similar severity-of-illness and risk-of-mortality groupings.
Perspective Online provides detailed clinical and financial information, allowing clients to compare outcomes, cost and resource use at the DRG, 3M(TM) APR-DRG
, service line or department level within or outside their facility.
HealthGrades will use 3M APR-DRG
Software to Expand
The decision to adopt the 3M APR-DRG
classification system by the Maryland HSCRC was made June 2, 2004, and was approved by the Maryland Hospital Association, which advocates on behalf of Maryland's hospitals, health systems and their patients before legislative and regulatory bodies.
software measures clinical performance and identifies statistical differences in severity, mortality, resource use and patient care across health care organizations.
The complexity level for some secondary diagnoses differs according to whether the APR-DRG
is medical or surgical.
