Resumen

SEBASTIAN VIANA, Tomás et al. Impact of the codification of nursing activities on mean diagnosis of weight related group and its effects on hospital financing. Gac Sanit [online]. 2009, vol.23, n.1, pp.55-57. ISSN 0213-9111.

Objective: To assess the impact of codification of nursing activities and procedures on a hospital's weighting and finance. Methods: Codification was performed in two inpatient settings using discharge data. Nurses' procedures and patient conditions falling within nurses' responsibilities were codified. New mean weights for diagnosisrelated groups (DRGs) and hospital complexity units (HCU) were calculated, as were their effects on finance. Results: In January and February, 2006, the mean weighting in the medical admission unit increased by 0.0655, representing 7.2727 more HCU and a rise in the monthly budget of 13,092.25€. On January of 2006, the mean weighting in the surgical admission unit increased by 0.0747 representing 10.8315 HCU and an increase in the monthly budget of 19,498.76€. Conclusions: Codification of nursing activities has improved the case mix and has had a positive effect on the hospital's finance.
