Abstract

Although it may not be feasible in the short term, grouping algorithms would benefit greatly from the introduction of classification variables tailored to the needs of specific episodes of care. A first step would be to focus on ‘general’ classification variables meaningful for specific episodes of care. Copyright Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2013
