AR-DRG Version 11.0 education

The Australian Refined Diagnosis Related Groups (AR-DRGs) classification groups episodes into clinically meaningful and resource homogenous categories.

The AR-DRG eLearning program comprises three interactive online modules (and an introductory module that guides users in engaging with the content) covering fundamentals of AR-DRGs and refinements for the new AR-DRG Version 11.0:

  • AR-DRG V11.0 fundamentals
  • AR-DRG V11.0 specific refinements
  • AR-DRG V11.0 standard refinements and overview

Each module (except for the introductory module) will take approximately 30 minutes to complete and are compatible with multiple browsers.

Modules are self-paced and include knowledge checks throughout and Certificates of Completion.

Users will need to create an account to access the modules.
