Report for the counting, costing and classifying of Non-Admitted Multidisciplinary Case Conferences (MDCCs) where patient is not present

IHPA commissioned a study of the counting, costing and classifying of multidisciplinary case conferences (MDCCs) for non-admitted patients, when the patient is not present. MDCCs have become a more common and important aspect of clinical care. The increasing complexity and specialisation in health care has driven the need for more formalised mechanisms for multidisciplinary collaboration. The study’s purpose was to develop an enhanced understanding of how MDCCs are conducted in clinical settings, the resources involved, the data collection requirements and finally, the feasibility of counting, classifying and costing MDCCs.
