This study was designed to quantitatively assess the impact of deficiencies in completeness and precision of hospital case
cost data on cost weight compression. For the nursing per diem model versus the nursing workload model the average compression
was 19.6 percent (for the 25.9 percent of cases that changed cost weight by at least 5 percent).
