Heart Failure
Mortality (Death) Rates

UTMB’s mortality index for patients with heart failure (HF) in 2015 is less (better) than 1.00. This means we had fewer patients die in 2015 than predicted. Stated differently, UTMB saved the lives of three heart failure patients who were predicted to die this past year. In addition, UTMB’s mortality index is lower (better) than our Academic Medical Center Peers' average.
