Risk-Adjusted Mortality Ratio = Observed mortality compared to expected mortality.

Observed mortality = Recorded number of inpatient deaths at UVA Hospital during a specific period. A lower number is better.

Expected mortality = Predicted number of deaths in a hospital based on the patients’ levels of illness. Patients who are very sick have a higher expected mortality rate.

Measured on an annual (one-year) basis. Data as of Dec. 31, 2016.
