The DRG relative weight is an insurance cost factor, reflecting the degree of resources that will be consumed caring for a particular disease.
Taking the sum of all of the DRG relative weights and dividing by the total number of Medicare inpatient cases for that time frame determines the case mix index.
So maximizing DRG relative weight assignments is important in improving a hospital's overall payment.
Not only is identification of the underlying cause associated with a better prognosis for the patient, but should that cause be an acute myocardial infarction (AMI), a reclassification of the patient to DRG 121 follows.
It is important to remember that DRG rates were originally set on the basis of fully allocated total costs.
