Description:
Following the recommendations in 1989 of the Commission on Health Funding that hospitals should be funded based on the patients they actually treat (rather than historical budgets) and that D.R.G.'s should be used to determine such funding, the National Casemix Programme was instituted immediately and in 1991 the financial allocations for 15 hospitals included a small Casemix performance related element. Over the following 12 years the programme has been expanded incrementally so that now 37 hospitals treating 95% of acute inpatient and day-case hospital admissions now participate in the national Casemix programme. These hospitals have budgets in excess of €3bn per annum. Presently, 20% of the activity related funding for these hospitals is now Casemix performance dependant. Each year the number of hospitals, the areas within hospitals, and the percentage that is Casemix peer group performance related, grows.
