Case Mix Index
Are your coders capturing all CC/MCCs? If not, it could be negatively affecting your CMI and quality measures. In addition to reviewing CC/MCC code selections for both medical and surgical MS-DRGs, we:
- Investigate cases where there is a single reporting of a CC or MCC in a given time period as this can indicate a coding error or a provider documentation opportunity.
- Review a sudden spike or unusually high volume of MS-DRGs with CC/MCCs as this can be an indicator or an increased denial risk and can impact mortality index reporting.
- Evaluate outliers in the average length of stay where inconsistencies can identify coding and documentation opportunities.
