Intermountain Risk Scores were developed in 2009 with the clinician in mind. We wanted to create a collection of risk scores that maximized ease of use without sacrificing predictability.
The novel approach to our risk score development was to use common clinical lab tests. These tests are ordered on almost all patients, are inexpensive, quantitative, objective, and standardized.
Each year we add to our collection of risk scores and publish in highly reputable peer-reviewed journals. We are actively creating additional risk scores each year, implementing risk scores into our electronic medical record, and continuing to validate our risk scores among Intermountain and external populations through key collaborations.
