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"

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