    Concerns about inefficiency and excessive expenditures has stimulated interest in the measurement of the output of the hospital, an organization that produces a wide variety of products. Diagnosis Related Groups and a number of severity measures including Disease Staging, the Severity of Illness Index, and Patient Management Categories are described and evaluated.   Severity of Illness Scoring is a sample topic from the Pocket ICU Management.

In , an ambitious and extensive project was undertaken in New Jersey to evaluate severity class adjustment of the all-payer prospective payment system. Another project objective was to evaluate alternative strategies for refining diagnosis-related groups (DRGs).

    The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) assigns discharges to diagnosis-related groups (DRGs). A DRG is a grouping of similar clinical conditions (diagnoses) and the service procedures. furnished during the inpatient hospital stay. The patient’s principal diagnosis and up to 24 secondary. Signs and symptoms of bacterial pneumonia vary with the individual pathogen, the age and immunologic condition of the patient, and the severity of the illness. Clinical manifestations, especially in newborns and infants, may be absent. General or nonspecific complaints include fever, chills, headache, irritability, and restlessness.

Severity - Diagnosis Related Groups (MS -DRG) to ICDCM and ICDPCS • Reverse index lookup – Used. Diagnosis-related group (DRG) is a system to classify hospital cases into one of originally groups, with the last group (coded as through v24, thereafter) being "Ungroupable".

This system of classification was developed as a collaborative project by Robert B Fetter, PhD, of the Yale School of Management, and John D. Thompson, MPH, of the Yale School of Public Health. The analysis also attempted to adjust for severity of illness by use of the medical audit component of the CPHA Hospital Discharge Abstract form.

imminent. Severity of illness scores are increasingly used in the intensive care environment to help predict outcome, to characterize disease severity and degree of organ dysfunction, to stratify patients.

Severity of illness (SOI) is defined as the extent of organ system derangement or physiologic decompensation for a patient.

It gives a medical classification into minor, moderate, major, and extreme. The SOI class is meant to provide a basis for evaluating hospital resource use or to establish patient care guidelines.

Patients are assigned their SOI based on their specific diagnoses and. Markers exist to adjust crude death rates for injury severity: observed over expected deaths (O/E) adjust for injury; Case Mix Index (CMI) reflects disease burden, and Severity of Illness (SOI) measures organ dysfunction.

We aim to evaluate the impact of implementing a Clinical Documentation Improvement Program (CDIP) on reported outcomes.

Severity adjustment systems use a similar structure to that which you find with Medicare severity diagnosis related groups (MS-DRG), having one global category—the DRG.

However, a severity adjustment system differs from MS-DRGs in that it further adjusts the data into four subclass levels for SOI, and another four subclass levels for ROM.

When making comparisons among various hospitals or patient groups, the case mix index can be used to adjust indicators such as average charges.
