Developers interested in producing and marketing authorized NordDRG grouper software must apply for a "Certificate of Acceptance".
NordDRG definition tables and the NordDRG Manual may be used to produce DRG grouper software. These specifications can be used to produce grouper software using different computing languages, different architectures and for different computer platforms.
Goals and Tasks
The participating organisations own the NordDRG system and they may continue using it even if they would resign from the cooperation. The owners have transferred the rights to develop and maintain the system to the Nordic Casemix Centre.
NordDRG definition tables
Represented as a set of tables available in Excel and dBase® formats. A NordDRG grouper has to comply with the tables and the interpretation rules in the NordDRG Manual.
The annual maintenance and updating of the NordDRG system is performed according to a specified protocol and to a decided timetable.
The definitions are directly based on the primary classifications
The Steering Board of Nordic Casemix Centre endorses any proposed changes to the common version of the NordDRG
The updating process is performed by qualified experts and staff
