Analysis of Case-Mix Strategies and Recommendations for Medicare Fee-for-Service CAHPS
Case-Mix Adjustment Report: 2004
For readers familiar with the 2000-2002 (Years 1-3) Case-Mix Reports, the authors briefly describe how this report differs from the previous year’s report. First, this report seeks to evaluate the stability of many of the findings and resultant decisions from the 2000-2002 Case-Mix Reports, including the choice of case-mix adjusters, their parameterization, and their impact. Second, they have reformatted the presentation of information in a way that favors comparative tables across years were possible and which relegates older data to the Appendix when this is not possible, with the hopes of producing a more concise document.
