IDENTIFYING POTENTIAL CANDIDATES FOR HOSPITAL AT HOME AMONG 104,662 ADULT ADMISSIONS WITH SUSPECTED BACTERIAL INFECTION

Background: Hospital at Home (HaH) care is an alternative to traditional hospitalization with potential to address issues of cost and hospital capacity, while improving outcomes and patient satisfaction. In 2017, the US Department of Health [...]

THE INFLUENCE OF GEOGRAPHIC DISPERSION ON OUTCOMES OF HOSPITALIZED MEDICINE SERVICE PATIENTS

Background: Specialty wards (e.g., cardiology or oncology wards) group clinically similar hospitalized patients in efforts to improve outcomes and costs. When these wards exceed capacity, subsequent patients overflow to “geographically dispersed” alternate wards. Geographic dispersion [...]

CHARACTERIZING AN ADMITTED PATIENT POPULATION WITH SUSPECTED INFECTION THROUGH CLINICAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE DATA

Background: Sepsis research is limited by heterogeneity and inaccuracy of patient identification. An ideal identification algorithm would broadly define a population with suspected infection to optimize discrimination and provide real-time identification of high-risk populations for [...]

A STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF METHODOLOGIES FOR THE REAL-TIME IDENTIFICATION OF PATIENTS WITH ACUTE EXACERBATIONS OF CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE

Background: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a lung disease characterized by chronic, irreversible airway obstruction that can precipitate into acute exacerbations (AECOPD) of cough, dyspnea and sputum production, often requiring hospitalization. Hospital systems aiming [...]
