Abstract

Provides a review and analysis of the ambulatory patient groups classification system. Discusses a review of the history, development and implementation process. Concludes that in the ongoing efforts to move towards full‐managed care in the not‐so‐distant future, ambulatory patients groups are another potential cost‐cutting remedy for current health care providers and that future research into this issue is a must for public policy makers.
