Due to a transition to a new episode grouping tool, surgical procedure cost estimates were not updated during CompareMaine 6.0. The new episode grouper software, Optum Symmetry’s ETG was implemented during CompareMaine 7.0. A new trend line was established in the trends over time comparison to reflect the methodology changes.
