Diagnosis related group
Identifying and definitional attributes
|Metadata item type:||Property|
|Definition:||A resource utilisation classification based on diagnosed conditions, usage of hospital resources, and demographic characteristics of the patient.|
|Context:||The development of Australian refined diagnosis related groups has created a descriptive framework for studying hospitalisation. Diagnosis related groups provide a summary of the varied reasons for hospitalisation and the complexity of cases a hospital treats. Moreover, as a framework for describing the products of a hospital (that is, patients receiving services), they allow meaningful comparisons of hospitals' efficiency and effectiveness under alternative systems of health care provision.|
