Hospitals within the German Diagnosis-Related Group (DRG) payment system continuously collect discharge data. A detailed report, found here, contains tables with inpatient discharge numbers broken down by diagnosis, procedures, 5-year age groups, sex, region, departments visited, and length of stay. It also presents the number of cases and percent of all cases for the top 50 operations, the top 50 secondary diagnoses for each sex, and both combined. Conditions are coded according to the European Shortlist, which is compatible with ICD-8, ICD-9, and ICD-10. The conditions included in the European Shortlist are listed in an appendix to the report.
