Overview

The authors evaluated the recording of operations in 1234 gynaecological laparoscopic operations during the first half of 2001in 9 Prague health facilities. The health insurance company received a total of 3022 codes 51711(laparoscopic and thporacoscopicoperation) with a total value of 2 169 796 points and ZUM with a total value of 10 743 562.50 Czch crowns. The reportedhospitalization period after these operations is significantly shorter ascompared with classicalabdominal or vaginal operations,however the mean values of the number of days of treatment differ in different health institutions. Errors in the recording involvednon-recording of DRG-marker codes , incorrect recording of code 51711 and codes PZT of sub-group 82. The reason forincorrect accounting was lack of knowledge of the recording rules,negligence or an attempt of obtaining a higher compensationby overestimation of data.

Key words:
