Master thesis

In my master thesis project, I examined whether the introduction of a prospective payment system (DRG) influenced the average lenght of stay in German hospitals. As I had to use state aggregate data (finding funding for data acquisition was difficult for a master thesis), the analysis has several limitations. OVerall, it appears that the DRG introduction did not considerably affect the lenght of stay.
