Description

Developed by the National Casemix Office, Healthcare Resource Groups (HRGs) are standard groupings of clinically similar treatments which use common levels of healthcare resource.

Healthcare Resource Groups offer ORGANISATIONS the ability to understand their ACTIVITY in terms of the types of PATIENTS they care for and the treatments they undertake. They enable the comparison of ACTIVITY within and between different ORGANISATIONS and provide an opportunity to benchmark treatments and services to support trend analysis over time.

Healthcare Resource Groups are currently used as a means of determining fair and equitable reimbursement for care services delivered by Health Care Providers. Their use as consistent 'units of currency' supports standardised healthcare commissioning across the NHS. They improve the flow of finances within - and sometimes beyond - the NHS.

For further information on Healthcare Resource Groups, see the NHS Digital  website at: Downloads - Groupers and Tools.
