Association of the All-Patient Refined Diagnosis-Related Groups Severity of Illness and Risk of Mortality Classification with Outcomes
Association of the All-Patient Refined Diagnosis-Related Groups Severity of Illness and Risk of Mortality Classification with Outcomes (SMA).
Diagnosis-related groups (DRGs) is a patient classification system used to characterize the types of patients that the hospital manages and to compare the resources needed during hospitalization. The DRG classification is based on International Classification of Diseases diagnoses, procedures, demographics, discharge status,
and complications or comorbidities and compares hospital resources and outcomes used to determine how much Medicare pays the hospital for each “product/medical condition.”
The All-Patient Refined DRG (APR-DRG) incorporated severity of illness (SOI)
and risk of mortality (ROM) into the DRG system to adjust for patient
complexity to compare resource utilization, complication rates, and lengths of stay.
