Adjusted Clinical Groups (ACG) are risk adjustment systems that classify people according to their age, sex and medical conditions, these people have a similar consumption of health resources over a given period of time. They were developed by Starfield and Weiner (Johns Hopkins University, USA, 1991), and their objective is to measure the degree of illness among patients based on the levels of comorbidity. Their main applications are: a) the evaluation of the efficiency in the use of health services, b) measurement of population’s comorbidity, and c) to program the funding or capitation fee for groups of providers. Some of the advantages of the ACG system are the limited number of variables needed for each patient (age, sex and diagnosis) and the unit of measurement, which is the patient. Some characteristics of this population risk adjustment system are commented. Los Adjusted Clinical Groups (ACG) son un sistema de ajuste de riesgos que clasifica a las personas según su edad y sexo y las condiciones médicas que presentan, y estas personas tienen un consumo similar de recursos sanitarios durante un periodo. Fueron desarrollados por Starfield y Weiner (Universidad Johns Hopkins, EE. UU. 1991), y su objetivo es medir el grado de enfermedad en poblaciones de pacientes basándose en sus niveles de comorbilidad. Entre sus principales aplicaciones destacan: a) evaluar la eficiencia en la utilización de los servicios sanitarios, b) medir la comorbilidad de la población, y c) programar la financiación o pago capitativo para grupos de proveedores. Entre las ventajas del sistema ACG destaca la necesidad de un número limitado de variables para cada paciente (edad, sexo y diagnósticos) y que la unidad de medida es el paciente. Se comentan algunas características de este sistema de ajuste de riesgos poblacionales.
