Intermountain’s suite of clinical decision tools empowers the prediction of multiple types of patient risk:
- Hospital readmission
- Onset of serious morbidities
Our comprehensive sex-specific risk scores use existing and easily obtained clinical data to identify future patient risk at the beginning of care, unlike most models that are calculated at discharge or that require hand calculation. This approach better informs clinicians, who can more precisely treat patients with the benefit of automated risk score calculation that does not disrupt their workflow. Results of clinical implementation of Intermountain risk scores show significant reductions in patient mortality and readmissions, in addition to cost savings for both the patient and health system.
