Abstract

Casemix grouping using procedures classifications has become an important use case for health care terminologies. There are so many different national procedures classifications used for Casemix grouping that it is not possible to agree on a worldwide standard. ICHI (International Classification of Health Interventions) is proposing an approach that standardises only the terminologies' model structure. The poster shows the use of the ICHI alpha to replace ICD9 CM Volume 3 in the UNU-CBG International Casemix grouper.
