j] = proportion of all the patients in i general hospital accounted for by the jth ADRG
The ADRG and CADRG are scanned versions of paper maps.
The ADRG is a non-compressed digital image of charts.
However, there are some exceptions for specific ADRGs
CADRG is a compressed version of ADRG
(ARC Digitized Raster Graphics).
A four-step hierarchical rule was used for grouping the principal diagnoses that occurred within each ADRG
to form dummy variables.
In particular, the following ADRGs
were selected: angina (DRG 140); atherosclerosis (DRGs 132-133); coronary artery bypass graft surgery (DRGs 106-107); percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (DRG 112); cardiac catheterization (DRGs 124-125); acute myocardial infarction (DRGs 121-123); asthma (DRGs 96-98); respiratory infection (DRG 79); chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (DRG 88); and pneumonia (DRGs 89-91).
0 percent of those with diagnostic evaluation were grouped into the medical digestive malignancy ADRG
A list of the complete ADRG
assignments is available from the authors.
Designed to meet tough military and commercial requirements, MapFusion provides "on-demand" interoperability between prevalent geospatial military standards including VPF, RPF, ADRG
, and DTED, and popular GIS business packages from ESRI(R), Informix(R) (IBM(R) subsidiary), Intergraph(R), MapInfo(R), ObjectFX(TM), Oracle(R), and Virtual Prototypes(TM).
These include raster formats such as ADRG
, CADRG, CIB and GeoTIFF, and vector formats such as DXF, VPF, DCW, and ESRI Shapefile.
Some of the raster or image formats supported will be ADRG
, CADRG, CIB, Landsat, SPOT, CIB, and DOQ.
