Grouping. Making clinically coded data useful for reporting, reimbursement and analysis.


Clinical codes are the building blocks used to create a picture of a patient's stay in hospital. These codes are grouped to generate a Diagnosis Related Group (DRG), each representing a group of clinically and economically homogeneous patients.

Through DRGs a hospital is able to gain detailed understanding of the patients they treat (case mix). Many hospitals and departments then analyse this data for performance, pricing and reimbursement.

3M has a range of grouping software that groups coded data into any version of the Australian Refined - Diagnosis Related Group (AR-DRG).
