Hospital Readmission Calculator? There’s an App for That!

Last year our group at Yale posted online a readmission calculator for patients hospitalized with AMI, heart failure and pneumonia. The calculator was based on medical record chart models developed for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to validate the publicly reported models. The calculator produces an estimated risk of readmission based on a patient’s demographic and clinical characteristics. In response to requests from users, we have made the calculator available for free as an iPhone app. You can download if from the iTunes store or find it at this link: (CORE) Readmission Risk Calculators iPhone App

Please let us know about your experience with it – and how you are using it. Thanks!
