Ethics, DRGs and medical record administrators.

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Medical record administrators in the United States have documented a range of ethical problems which they have experienced as a result of the advent of DRGs. This paper considers the similarities and differences between the Australian and United States experience of DRGs, and the implications of these for Australian medical record administrators. Some ethical problems are described, and it is argued that these problems relate particularly to power imbalances between medical record administrators and other health professions.
