Patient Record + DRG

by Tableau


The Tableau Accelerator for Patient Record + DRG gives you a jumpstart to getting data-driven insights into patient records. You can use this Accelerator to better understand patient stays and how they have evolved.

LOS stands for length of stay (measured in days).

A diagnosis-related group (DRG) is a patient classification system that standardizes prospective payment to hospitals and encourages cost containment initiatives. In general, a DRG payment covers all charges associated with an inpatient stay from the time of admission to discharge. The DRG includes any services performed by an outside provider.

DRG-Inliers % represents the share of stays for which the LOS was between the two LOS thresholds recommended for this DRG.

Answer key business questions

  • How many stays do we handle? Which trends?
  • What it the typical LOS by specialty? How does it compare to the benchmark LOS?
  • What is the share of DRG-inliers?
  • How many discharges are done before noon?
  • What is the share of inpatient stays?
  • What is our average Cost-weight per stay? How does it evolve?
