  1. Aggregated Diagnosis Groups: Measures levels of patient co-morbidity, with increasing number representing higher level of comorbidity burden.
  2. *Resource Utilization Bands: Measures category of expected resource use, from 0 (lowest expected resource use) to 5 (highest expected resource use).
