Tool predicts one year death risk following hospitalization
Tool predicts one year death risk following hospitalization (June 9, 2015 - Insidermedicine) From Ottawa - A new report published in CMAJ describes a novel tool that can accurately predict death risk within 1 year of hospital admission. Researchers studied data on over three million people over an 8 year period. They examined whether the Hospital-patient One-year Mortality Risk (HOMR) could predict risk of death from any cause following the hospitalization. HOMR takes into account age, sex, living status, number of illnesses, severity of illness, and the amount of hospital admissions. They found that the predicted 1-year mortality risk from HOMR was accurate in it’s predictions.
