What is APR-DRG Case Mix Index

The APR-DRG stands for "all patient refined diagnostic related group." The APR-DRG is a measurement created for the purpose of administrative comparison of how sick patients are. Factors like the type of illness the patient has and other complicating factors get put into a methodology that equates to a number. Hospitals with an "average" level of complication to the patients they see have an APR-DRG of 1.0 Having a high APR-DRG means that we see patients that are significantly sicker and more complicated to treat. To meet these patients’ needs, we have to provide a higher level of resources both in technology and staff.
