Groupers

Programmes for assignment of patient cases to different groups in NordDRG system are produced by third party producers. 

Nordic Casemix Centre has an agreement with Datawell for production of the grouper for the Centre and for use by national owner’s staff.

For use at hospitals the countries have different arrangements and different producers are active in different countries.
