    Data Synthesis

    The DRG system is part of a system developed at Yale University to provide hospitals with incentives to control costs.

    Hospital Medicare inpatients are classified into groups that are clinically coherent and homogenous with respect to resource use.

    The classification is also dependent on principal and secondary diagnoses and procedures, age, gender, and discharge status of the patient.

    Reimbursement is determined by the classification.
