Abstract:

This paper examines the development of a diagnosis related management system for Obstetrical and Gynecological Diagnosis Related Groups at Winn Army Community Hospital, Ft. Stewart, GA. Linear Programming was used to create an objective function that maximized the relative weighted products that result from the DRG tracked workload. The programs objective was to examine the DRGs on a case mix approach and maximize the highest sum of the relative weighted products to achieve the highest reimbursement possible. This program considered the physical limitations of the physicians based on available time and the time required to perform certain procedures. The program produced an optimal relative weighted product that recommends how much of each DRG should be performed based on the variables and constraints within the facility.
