There is More to CMI than You Think


Case Mix Index (CMI) is a standard metric used by most hospitals to measure documentation and coding performance. However, most hospitals do not usually consider the limitations of CMI as a performance metric. This session will introduce a best practice approach to CMI as a key performance indicator.

 What You Will Learn:

  1.  Learn how do to determine what the appropriate CMI target for a specific patient population should be
  2. Understand what to consider in selecting the benchmarks for performance
  3. Learn how to quantify the impact of documentation/coding performance improvements vs. changes in patient mix or external factors outside of CDI/HIM team’s control (e.g., like COVID)
