The Risk Adjusted Mortality Index (RAMI) is calculated as the ratio of the actual number of deaths in a hospital, compared to the expected number of deaths.
The baseline is set at 100 - so anything above that means a higher than expected death rate, and anything below it means a lower than expected death rate.
