Specific Medicare Severity-Diagnosis Related Group Codes Increase the Predictability of 30-Day Unplanned Hospital Readmission After Pancreaticoduodenectomy

Distinct pancreatectomy MS-DRG classification codes (405), combined with relevant clinicopathologic and perioperative characteristics, strongly predicted 30-day readmission after PD. DRG classification algorithms can be implemented to more accurately identify patients at a higher risk of readmission.
