While you might find itemids for various severity scores such as APACHE IV in the hospital data, there will be few associated values. This is because the scores are rarely calculated or recorded by caregivers.

Most of the scores are computed retrospectively by the MIMIC research community. Code for generating scores will be collaboratively developed and shared via the MIMIC Code Repository.


Adding more severity scores is in the todo list:

APACHE score or similar #28:

We plan to release code for calculating severity scores as soon as we have time to! On the list are SAPS, SOFA, APS III, and SAPS II.

The code to compute the Elixhauser comorbidity measure is available for MySQL and Postgres.
