A treatment is defined by:
- a patient
- a segment: this corresponds to the last level of grouping of LPP acts from the correspondence table
The number of treatments thus corresponds to the distinct number of patients per segment
For a patient who has benefited from several LPP acts belonging to the same segment, the number of treatments will be equal to 1.
On the other hand, if he benefits from several acts classified in 2 different segments, the number of treatments will be equal to 2.
The same LPP code can belong to several segments: in this case a distribution coefficient is defined. Thus, the number of treatments is not necessarily an integer.
