Inpatient Admissions: Case Mix Index

2020 – 2021

CCRH = Cleveland Clinic Rehabilitation Hospital

The medical acuity of patients admitted to CCRH remained high in 2021. In acute inpatient rehabilitation, case mix group (CMG) is an indication of the complexity of an individual patient and is determined by primary diagnosis, comorbidities, age, and functional assessment upon admission. A rehab hospital’s case mix index (CMI) is the cumulative measure determined by its patients’ individual CMGs. The higher the CMI, the more complex the patient population. CCRH’s overall CMI remained relatively stable in 2021 at 1.56, compared with 1.54 in 2020.

Cleveland Clinic Rehabilitation Hospital: Discharges

2020 – 2021

From 2020 to 2021, the number of patients discharged from CCRH increased from 3876 to 4021, with increases seen across most major diagnostic groups. As the COVID-19 pandemic has continued, inpatient rehabilitation facilities continue to play an important role in helping patients severely affected by COVID transition to the community, and in ensuring that patients suffering from the consequences of other diseases and injuries were transitioned in a timely manner out of acute care units.
