Resource description

It has been called the most significant innovation in US medical financing since the Second World War. Introduced in 1983, the Diagnosis-Related Groups (DRGs) system for classifying patients gave healthcare providers and payers a tool to manage patient care and slow the rising cost of health care. Since then, DRGs, or patient classification systems (PCSs) as they are known outside the US, have caught the attention of health care policymakers around the world.
