Abstract : This document presents a review of facility and Service branch Case- Mix Indices (CMIs) for the period FY 1985 through FY 1990 at Military Medical Treatment Facilities (MTFs) within the Military Health Services System (MHSS). CMI values were computed based upon Version 4 and Version 8 Diagnosis Related Groups (DRGs) and respective case weights and Department of Defense (DoD) trim points. Changes in CMIs using Version 4 DRGs were examined for FY 1985 through FY 1990. In addition, the impact of updating the grouper from Version 4 to Version 8 was evaluated at the DRG, Service branch, and facility level. CMI; Version 4 and Version 8 Comparison of DRG Grouper; MTF; MHSS.
