Sum of all total weights divided by the sum of total patient discharges equals the case-mix index What relating the case-mix index to the costs incurred for inpatient care does Allows the hospital to make administrative decisions about services to be offered to its patient population.

The case mix index for a healthcare facility reflects costs incurred to provide services and treatments that inpatients require. In general, the higher the CMI is, the sicker its patients, and the more resources patients required during treatment.

This file contains hospitals case mix indexes (CMI) for discharges. A hospital's CMI represents the average diagnosis-related group (DRG) relative weight for that hospital. It is calculated by summing the DRG weights for all Medicare discharges and dividing by the number of discharges.
These changes have been attributed, in the absence of appropriate data and analyses, to the incentives of the Medicare prospective payment system (PPS). Using data for from hospitals, we estimate the effect on the Medicare case-mix index of a series of variables that reflect medical treatments and coding by: In talking with our hospital customers, case mix index (CMI) often comes up as a source of confusion and misunderstanding by clinical staff.
