Berlin doctors intensify DRG (diagnosis related groups) opposition

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The new German diagnosis related groups (DRG) system for hospital reimbursement must not be introduced in its present form, as it is open to severe abuse, claims the Berlin doctors' chamber (AKB). Ahead of the final week of the Social Democratic Party and Green Party coalition negotiations, the AKB is exerting pressure on the government to amend the DRG regulations. "It is not the instrument of the reimbursement procedure that is bad, but the circumstances under which it is being introduced," said AKB president Gunther Jonitz.
