Overall Mortality IndexActual vs. Expected

UTMB’s overall mortality index in calendar year 2015 was less (better) than 1.00. Although our rate was higher (worse) this year than that of our Academic Medical Center Peers, a rate of less than 1.00 means that we had fewer patients die in 2015 than were predicted. Stated differently, UTMB saved the lives of 10 patients who were predicted to die in 2015.
