What is the exactly relationship between the diagnoses priority and the treatment in MIMIC-III?
The website mentions:
SEQ_NUM provides the order in which the ICD diagnoses relate to the patient. ICD diagnoses are ordered by priority - and the order does have an impact on the reimbursement for treatment.
in the diagnoses_icd table in MIMC-III.
I want to know how the priority impact the treatment exactly. Does the diagnoses with HIGH priority (seq_num with large number) will be treated as the major (the most important) diagnoses or the one with LOW priority (small number)?
