New ‘Risk of Hospitalisation’ Report – utilising the CSIRO Predictive Risk Algorithm to help direct care to patients who need it the most.
The (CSIRO) ‘Risk of Hospitalisation’ Report is an all-new Clinical Audit Tool (CAT) capability, which may determine the probability that a patient will make an unplanned hospital visit within 12- months. Developed using Australian de-identified primary care data, the model considers patient demographics, their socio-economic index of relative advantage/disadvantage, physiological information, medications, chronic conditions, pathology categories according to abnormal levels in test results, and lifestyle factors such as alcohol and tobacco use.
