1. Testing of the DAD grouping methodology (CMG+ and CACS)

CIHI requires all grouper health information software vendors to submit test files at the beginning of every fiscal year. The software vendors listed below have successfully submitted test data for the 2021–2022 DAD grouper only (CMG+ and CACS). To ensure software vendor system compliance with CIHI’s CMG+ production system, the software vendors were mandated to submit test data files that had been grouped using their vendor-assigned values. CMG+/CACS software vendor-assigned values had to comply 100% with the CIHI-assigned values before the testing was deemed successful.
