  1. Do diagnosis related groups separate the case-mix of a specialist children's hospital and a paediatric unit in a general hospital ?

    Article - En anglais

    The ability of diagnosis related groups (DRG) and refinement diagnosis related groups (RDRG) to measure differences in case-mix was investigated using discharge data for patients < 18 years of age from three specialist children's hospitals and four district hospitals.

    While the three children's hospitals each had a greater percentage of RDRG for more complex patients, only one children's hospital had more complex patients based on DRG and RDRG cost weights and on the percentage of diagnoses per discharge.

    Cost weights based on USA practices may be inappropriate in Australia, and Australian weights will be necessary for firm conclusions.
