Abstract

Since the G-DRG system was established for remuneration of inpatient treatment, hospitals may offer the cost data of their cases as a database for the calculation of new DRGs. Therefore, the DRGs will be only as good as the cost data offered. These hospitals must be interested in offering perfect data, since this is the only option to optimize the DRG system.
