If you want to type in data and get back a DRG, then you need one of our interactive groupers.
 
HOW TO PICK A VERSION
Every year the US Federal government releases a new DRG version. The earliest version we sell through our on-line store is Version 10, which we call "f10" for Federal Version 10.
The official release is on October 1st every year and we usually release our implementation of the algorithm by October 15th every year.
Please specify which version you need for any of our products. Our software is backwardly compatible, so if you buy the version 20 grouper, that module can handle versions 10 through 20, assuming that you have purchased the appropriate masks file.
NOTE: We have support for versions 2 through 9, but demand is low enough that we do not clutter up our on-line store with them. You can purchase support for versions 2 through 9, but only by contacting us directly.

VB-DRG
VB-DRG is our Visual BASIC DRG Grouper. VB-DRG is a Visual BASIC form which collects the data needed to assign a DRG and then calls our Grouper DLL with that data. VB-DRG then displays the results on the screen (but does not save them anywhere). VB-DRG features interactive labelling of ICD9cm codes via our ICD9cm labelling DLL.
VB-DRG can support multiple DRG versions. VB-DRG automatically detects the presence of any and all masks files and then presents the user with a list of versions supported by your particular installation. If you want to keep your VB-DRG application current, you will need to upgrade every year by buying a new Grouper DLL (the price of which includes a new masks file). You will also need a new ICD9cm Labels data file to keep up to date.
Included in the VB-DRG purchase price is
  • VB-DRG application
  • Current Grouper DLL
  • DRG Masks file of your choice
  • ICD9cm DLL
  • ICD9cm Labels data file
If you want to interactively group records and then store the results, look at Access-DRG.

CGI-DRG
CGI-DRG stands for "Common Gateway Interface DRG Grouper." CGI is the standard most webservers use to communicate with scripts. CGI-DRG is intended to be installed by your IT department on an internal server. CGI-DRG provides a simple HTML form into which any user with a browser and web access to your server can fill in and get back a DRG, as well as indications of which codes were used in the grouping and the DRG's description, MDC, weight and mean. We have tested CGI-DRG under GNU-Linux and Apache, so we expect our ANSI C source to compile and run under just about any UN*X and just about any web server. We have tested CGI-DRG under NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 running IIS.

ACCESS-DRG
Access-DRG is a Microsoft Access application which collects the data needed to assign a DRG and stores that data, to be grouped by our Grouper DLL on demand. Access-DRG features interactive labelling of ICD9cm codes via our ICD9cm labelling DLL.
Included in the Access-DRG purchase price is
  • Access-DRG application
  • Current Grouper DLL
  • DRG Masks file of your choice
  • ICD9cm DLL
  • ICD9cm Labels data file
If you want to interactively group records but do not want to store the results, look at VB-DRG.

MAY WE TAKE YOUR ORDER?
As of October, 2009, we have a shiny new on-line shopping cart. We strongly recommend that you use it, if you can. You can use the shopping cart by clicking on the big blue buttons above.
If you use the on-line shopping cart, you get your software immediately and directly.
If you do not use the shopping cart, your order will have to be filled manually, which takes time, and will be emailed to you, which often leads to interference by spam filters and firewalls.
You can use the on-line shopping cart if you have a company credit card; we use Paypal to process on-line purchases, but Paypay does not require you to have or use a Paypal account.
If your company works on a purchase order basis, you may want to fax us a purchase order to (203) 826-2214, containing the same product information as the form below. If you would like to order on-line, but are sure that you cannot use our on-line shopping cart, please fill in the form below and submit it.
(If you are reading the PDF version of this document, then please consider copying the form and pasting it into a email or printing it out and faxing it or mailing it.)
