The 29th PCSI Conference in Helsinki, Abstract submission Deadline: 15/05/2013



The 29th annual Patient Classification Systems International (PCSI) Conference
Call for PCSI Workshop Proposals

Dear Colleagues,

Have you thought about running a workshop on case mix? On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee of the 29th PCSI Conference in Helsinki, we invite you to submit a proposal to conduct a workshop to be held on the opening day (18 September) of this year’s conference. At present, the Local Organizing Committee welcomes and can accommodate 5 workshops in the morning and 5 in the afternoon.

Workshops at a PCSI Conference provide participants with an opportunity for more detailed discussion on topics of interest within the conference themes, and generally cover subjects that are too broad to be condensed into one session, paper or formal conference presentation.

Details on submitting a workshop proposal can be found at the conference website
The main topics are:
・Transparency in Health Care
Changes in international financial health across the world and the resulting impact on the health funding have led to an increased focus on transparency. Patient Classification systems such as Casemix are the tools used to provide this analysis and to shine a transparency on health care funding. Key areas of interest include the classification of patient activity and reporting systems.
Key Topics: Patient activity classification, Reporting systems, Benchmarking systems.
・Primary Care
The use of classification systems in primary care for activity and costs remains an important area of development and research. Key topics in this area include the development of the appropriate activity classifications and the need for the international comparability.
Key Topics: Activity classification, Cost Classification, International comparability.
・Cost Accounting
Cost accounting continues to be of central element of heath care funding. The rules surrounding the collection of cost data and the calculation of the cost weights are two areas of research among many.
Key Topics: Categorisation of cost data, Collection of cost data, Calculation of cost weights, Risk Adjustment.
・Structural Reform
Casemix and Classification systems are being used internationally to provide evidence for structural reform in health care. The sharing of this international experience is important as it helps inform countries an organisation grappling with similar reforms.
Key Topics: Use of Casemix systems, Local Experience and International experience.
・Information Systems
Information systems are the lifeblood of all casemix systems used in all areas of health care. Key areas include international comparability, data mining, benchmarking and reporting systems.
Key Topics: Benchmarking, Data Mining, International comparability, Reporting systems, Legacy data systems.
The creation and enhancement of the classifications for the different strata of health care remains an on-going project internationally. Key areas include the use of procedure classifications, diagnosis classification, ambulatory care classifications, non-acute care classification and DRG systems.
Key Topics: Diagnosis Classification, ambulatory care classification, non-acute care classification, procedural classification
・Coding and Data quality
The area of coding is fundamental building block to all classifications systems. Key areas in this area are international coding practices, data quality and Audit tools.
Key Topics: International coding practices, comparability, data quality, audit tools.

    After many discussions about the value of a collaborative association, including meetings in Paris in 1984 and Dublin in 1986, Patient Classifications Systems Europe (PCSE) was initially founded in 1987 in Lisbon. The organization created a network of researchers and users of the case mix concept from health administration, government agencies, and academia. From an initial focus on Diagnosis Related Group (DRGs), the association’s goals have expanded to include a broader interest in clustering and grouping techniques of clinical and administrative data for health care management and financing. The association has stimulated the use and refinement of the science of “grouping patients” within different levels of the health system.
    Expansion of the organization throughout the world brought a name change from PCSE to Patient Classification Systems International (PCSI). It is the only worldwide organization addressing case-mix issues. In the last years the annual international conference has brought together a growing number of active participants from all over the world. From a group of six “idealists” from Western Europe and the United States, the organization has now grown to hundreds of members from 5 continents. The organization puts on one annual conference and offers educational opportunities through our summer and winter School programs.
