On November 11th, the DRG Institute (InEK) published information for performance plannings/budget negotiations (“Hinweise zur Leistungsplanung/Budgetverhandlung”) as well as the commented chart of the DRG catalogues 2019 and 2020 (“kommentierte Migrationstabelle zwischen den Entgelt-Katalogen 2019 und 2020“) for German hospitals. The further development of the G-DRG-system implicates adaptations and changes which may lead to a difficult traceability of case shifts between the different DRGs in different DRG-versions.
To facilitate the understanding of these case shifts, InEK publishes the information for performance plannings/budget negotiations as well as the commented chart of the DRG catalogues in combination with the transitional versions of the G-DRG-systems on a regular annual basis.
“The separation of the nursing and care costs in the G-DRG-system leads to complex case shifts in this year’s further development” states Dr. Habetha of Healthcare Heads. “We definitely recommend considering this additional information when performing analyses.”
The Healthcare Heads team supports you in the interpretation of the different information.
