Case mix

The overall status of the resident population in a facility, based on the various residents’ health conditions. Providers also may describe their case-mix based on age, medical diagnosis, severity of illness or length of stay. A nursing home or hospital's actual case mix influences the cost and scope of services provided by the facility to the patient, and case mix reimbursement systems adjust payment rates accordingly.
