RE: Meaning of DRG

Hi Noreen!
Diagnosis-Related Groups, boy is that a blast from my "previous incarnation"!  I remember hospitals shutting thier doors and docs afraid to hospitalize folks back in 1979 or so when Medicare first started doing away with "fee for service"

Subject: Meaning of DRG

Does anyone know the definition of DRG? I know the purpose of DRG just
not what the initials stand for.
