As a new payment method, Diagnosis Intervention Pack (DIP), originated from Huai' an, Jiangsu Province, effectively alleviates the problem of rapid growth of local medical expenses. Based on the experience of Guangdong Province, DIP pilot reform was carried out in all cities of Guangdong Province. In order to study the current situation and effect of implementing the policy of "diagnosis intervention packet" in Guangdong Province, and analyze the feasibility and applicability of DIP, this paper summarizes the experience of pilot cities in Guangdong Province by means of comparative analysis. It is found that the implementation of DIP in Guangdong Province has achieved initial results in cost control and cost reduction, sustained operation of medical insurance fund and promotion of clinical coding and quality management of medical records, But at the same time, there are also some problems, such as the policy management is not unified, the information supporting technology and the quality management of medical records , the lack of professional personnel team and other aspects are not perfect . Based on this, this paper puts forward some relevant suggestions, such as strengthening the management measures of hospitals at all levels, expanding the professional talent team, and improving the level of information technology, so as to provide theoretical and practical reference for other pilot reform areas in China.
