Using the ACG grouper methodology all members are separated into major diagnostic cluster groups, for example, Cardiovascular and then within Cardiovascular into those diseases that are related to this grouping. This report can be used for Care Management in identifying those patients who must proactively be managed to prevent complications of known diseases and or manage patients based on impact and risk.
