TABLE 4.2 : hipe-report-table-42-total-discharges-mdc-by-patient-type-n-2017

MDC by Patient Type (day patient and in-patient). The MDC is a category generally based on a single body system or aetiology that is associated with a particular medical specialty. However, records assigned to MDCs 01, 15, 18 and 21 may have principal diagnoses associated with other categories. In AR-DRG Version 8.0, there are 23 MDCs. Activity in Acute Public Hospitals in Ireland Annual Report, 2017, is a report on in-patient and day patient discharges from acute public hospitals participating in the Hospital In-Patient Enquiry (HIPE) scheme in 2017. Discharge activity is examined by type of patient (day patient/in-patient), admission type (elective/emergency/maternity) and hospital group, and by demographic parameters (such as age and sex). Particular issues of relevance to the Irish health care system covered in the report relate to the composition of discharges by medical card and public/private status. Discharges are also analysed by diagnoses, procedures, major diagnostic categories, and diagnosis related groups. The analysis is presented at the national level. In 2017 HIPE discharges were coded using ICD-10-AM/ACHI/ACS 8th Edition and grouped into AR-DRG Version 8.0.
