The Nordic Casemix Centre coordinates the maintenance, updating and further development of the NordDRG system.
The NordDRG cooperation is led by the Board of the centre and by an Expert Network Group with members nominated by all participating countries.
The Nordic Casemix Centre continues the work, which started at the Nordic Centre for Classifications in Healthcare at Uppsala University. The Nordic Casemix Centre will continue collaboration the Classification Centre, which is now placed in Oslo.
After many discussions about the value of a collaborative association, including meetings in Paris in 1984 and Dublin in 1986, Patient Classifications Systems Europe (PCSE) was initially founded in 1987 in Lisbon. The organization created a network of researchers and users of the case mix concept from health administration, government agencies, and academia. From an initial focus on Diagnosis Related Group (DRGs), the association’s goals have expanded to include a broader interest in clustering and grouping techniques of clinical and administrative data for health care management and financing. The association has stimulated the use and refinement of the science of "grouping patients" within different levels of the health system.
Expansion of the organization throughout the world brought a name change from PCSE to Patient Classification Systems International (PCSI). It is the only worldwide organization addressing case-mix issues. In the last years the annual international conference has brought together a growing number of active participants from all over the world. From a group of six “idealists” from Western Europe and the United States, the organization has now grown to hundreds of members from 5 continents. The organization puts on one annual conference and offers educational opportunities through our summer and winter School programs.
Danish Regions is the interest organisation for the five regions in Denmark
Danish Regions' overall mission is to safeguard the interests of the regions nationally as well as internationally.
The most important tasks of the organisation are:
- to safeguard regional government interests within health care, hospitals, special education, regional development, environment and finances
- to act as spokesman on behalf of the regions vis-à-vis national government, the EU, other interest organisations and the media
- to negotiate the annual financial frames of the regions with national government
to negotiate pay and working conditions for regional employees as the regions' central employers and bargaining organisation
Danish Regions is run by a board of elected regional politicians from the five regions. The board is appointed for a four-year period, and reflects the political affinities of the 205 members of the five regional councils.
