The Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) has released a new report on the Nationwide Readmissions Database (NRD), Impact of the ICD-10-CM/PCS Transition on Readmission Rates, 2015-2017. The report describes the methodology and findings of an analysis that examined the impact of the ICD-10-CM/PCS transition on condition-specific readmission statistics. Conditions are based on two categorizations—diagnosis-related groups (DRGs) and major diagnostic categories (MDCs).
