10 years of DRG project with the German Society of Gastroenterology (DGVS)
A success story
In 2012, the DGVS launched a project together with inspiring-health to improve the mapping of gastroenterological services in hospitals through the DRG system.
The DGVS DRG project became a success story. Since 2015, an average of more than 30 applications have been submitted annually to BfArM/DIMDI and InEK. Over 130 of these have been implemented by InEK. On the one hand, this is due to a dialog between the professional society and InEK moderated by inspiring-health, but the decisive success factor is the company's own annual cost calculation with over 50 costing houses. This cost calculation enables inspiring-health to make targeted applications for gastroenterology based on its own statistical analyses.
Why a DRG project?
Particularly in the case of endoscopic services, it has become apparent that in many hospitals the calculated data obviously do not always correspond to the real costs incurred per case.
Since the calculation of DRGs is a complex and dynamic process, which is adjusted every year by the InEK (Institute for the Hospital Remuneration System) on the basis of the data of the calculating hospitals, the DGVS together with inspiring-health has started the DGVS DRG project.
The DGVS DRG project with inspiring-health
In 2012, the DGVS together with inspiring-health started a project to improve the mapping of gastroenterological services in hospitals by the DRG system. The focus is on the one hand on the medical classification of gastroenterological services and on the other hand on an appropriate consideration of physicians' actions in the calculation.
