2021 Type 2 Myocardial Infarction [IEM]

Patient’s with a Type 2 MI have a prognosis just as bad, if not worse, than patients who have a STEMI or NSTEMI
Accurate clinical documentation of myocardial infarctions influences:

  • Accountability for high-quality MI care
  • Hospital claims
  • Penalties, such as those associated with CMS’ Hospital Readmission Reduction Program
  • Mortality statistics
