Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2007-10-31


A process of assigning weights to different types of hospital cases. Those cases that require substantial resources would be assigned a weight higher than those that require relatively fewer resources. Case mix adjustment takes into account variability in resource requirements for different types of cases and may be used as one measure of hospital efficiency.
