With SMaRT Analytics™, the operational key metrics you need are at your fingertips, delivered automatically to your inbox.

Case Mix Index / Clinical Documentation

CMI impacts net revenue, so monitoring this metric helps explain some of your net revenue variability. Your CMI is not controllable — but the related CC (complication or comorbidity)/MCC (major complication or comorbidity) rate, which also impacts net revenue, is manageable through clinical documentation. As your CC/MCC rate improves, so do your quality scores.

By identifying documentation variation by provider, payor, and diagnosis, our CMI dashboard highlights best internal practices. Sharing these best practices can have a positive impact on your net revenue.
SMaRT Analytics features linked charts that trend and compare your CMI and CC/MCC rates by payor, DRG type, and provider.

Observation Rate

Medicare reimburses observation patients at approximately 50% of Inpatient reimbursements. Therefore, proper patient status is a critical element that impacts net revenue.

The SMaRT Analytics Observation Dashboard trends and compares cases, observation rate, and observation length of stay by payor, day of the week, diagnosis, provider, and location. These metrics identify practice variations that can lead to net revenue opportunities.

Linked Charts trend and compare the observation rate and hours by pay or day of the week, diagnosis, provider, and location.
