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.

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.
