St Vincent's Melbourne live with TurboGrouper for ABF compliance
St Vincent's Public Hospital and St Vincent's Private Hospital in Melbourne have gone live with EIS Health Data Solutions' TurboGrouper clinical coding and grouping software solution, which has been integrated with the hospitals' webPAS patient administration system.
TurboGrouper is used to group coded medical records into Australian Refined - Diagnosis Related Groups (AR-DRG) for reporting to the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) each month for activity-based funding purposes. AR-DRGs categorise patients into clinically meaningful groups with similar resource consumption and costs.
