  1. The cost per hospitalization was estimated using the following administrative regulations (named “Portaria”) from the Ministry of Health: Portaria 348-B/1998, Portaria 189/2001, Portaria 132/2003, Portaria 567/2006, and Portaria 132/2009. The diagnosis-related groups (DRGs) 488–490 were used from 2000 to 2003, and DRGs 700–716 were used from 2003 to 2010. A total of 25 Major Diagnostic Categories (MDCs) were used from 2000 to 2003, and 24 MDCs were used from 2003 to 2010.
