In this study, the PCEs were comprised of each of the 167 MS-DRGs subdivided into 19 ACRG categories.
As illustrated in Exhibit 1, the ACRG is assigned using the diagnoses and procedures present during the trigger hospitalization, plus any diagnosis and procedures that occurred up to one year prior to the date of hospital admission.
These 19 CRG categories are referred to as Aggregated CRGs (ACRGs) and range from patients with no significant chronic disease to patients with multiple major chronic diseases at high severity.
The last sixteen columns contain the [R.sup.2] for charges and for payments for post-acute care windows of 15, 30, 60, and 90 days for the MS-DRGs only and for PCEs (MS-DRGs plus ACRGs).
As expected, the addition of the ACRGs to the MS-DRGs did not provide a substantial increase in [R.sup.2] for inpatient services.
ACRG's Professor Simon O'Doherty, who also runs the UK greenhouse gas monitoring network funded by the Department for Energy and Climate Change, said: "It's important that we expand our greenhouse gas observation capabilities if we're really going to understand what we're emitting.
Dr Matt Rigby, research fellow at ACRG, said: "By measuring the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, and then using computer models to simulate where the air came from in the days before the measurements, we can determine emissions from the surrounding areas.
