German DRG (diagnosis related groups) system not yet out of the woods

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The German government's draft ordinance for the diagnosis related groups (DRG) system for hospital reimbursement has reached yet another stumbling block after this week's rejection by the federal association of statutory health insurance physicians (KBV). The KBV has added to misgivings expressed by the medical device industry association, BVMed (see Clinica No 1025, p 6), claiming that, in its current form, the DRG system would endanger outpatient care.
