Background 30-day hospital readmission is a long-standing medical problem that affects patients’ morbidity and mortality and costs billions of dollars annually. Recently, machine learning models have been created to predict risk of inpatient readmission for patients with specific diseases, however no model exists to predict this risk across all patients. Methods We developed a bi-directional Long Short Term Memory (LSTM) Network that is able to use readily available insurance data (inpatient…

Machine Learning-Based Prediction Models for 30-Day Readmission after Hospitalization for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Using nationwide administrative data in Japan, machine learning models improved the prediction of 30-day readmission after COPD hospitalization compared with a conventional model and moderate, significantly higher discrimination ability.

Machine Learning-Enabled 30-Day Readmission Model for Stroke Patients

Machine learning-based models can be designed to predict 30-day readmission after ischemic stroke using structured data from EHR and feature selection and adaptive sampling and have the best sensitivity.

Machine Learning Prediction of Postoperative Emergency Department Hospital Readmission

A machine learning approach to predicting postoperative readmission can produce hospital-specific models for accurately predicting 30-day readmissions via the emergency department and provide clinically usable predictions when applied to future patients.

A machine learning model to predict the risk of 30-day readmissions in patients with heart failure: a retrospective analysis of electronic medical records data

Deep learning techniques performed better than other traditional techniques in developing this EMR-based prediction model for 30-day readmissions in heart failure patients, enabling care teams to target interventions at their most high-risk patients and improving overall clinical outcomes.

Potentially avoidable 30-day hospital readmissions in medical patients: derivation and validation of a prediction model.

This simple prediction model identifies before discharge the risk of potentially avoidable 30-day readmission in medical patients and has potential to easily identify patients who may need more intensive transitional care interventions.

Derivation and validation of an index to predict early death or unplanned readmission after discharge from hospital to the community

The LACE index can be used to quantify risk of death or unplanned readmission within 30 days after discharge from hospital and could be used with both primary and administrative data.

Implementation of Artificial Intelligence-Based Clinical Decision Support to Reduce Hospital Readmissions at a Regional Hospital

Using artificial intelligence to identify patients at the highest risk for readmission can reduce quality gaps when coupled with patient-centered interventions and observe a decrease in hospital readmission after implementing artificial intelligence-based clinical decision support.

The Impact of Pharmacy-specific Predictors on the Performance of 30-Day Readmission Risk Prediction Models

The need for a universal prioritization tool for pharmacists may therefore be potentially met with the comorbidity burden score model, a combination of all 5 major predictors to prioritize their interventions while exceeding Medicare performance measures on readmission.

Use of electronic medical records in development and validation of risk prediction models of hospital readmission: systematic review

On average, prediction models using EMR data have better predictive performance than those using administrative data, however, this improvement remains modest.

The HOSPITAL score and LACE index as predictors of 30 day readmission in a retrospective study at a university-affiliated community hospital

The HOSPITAL score has superior discriminatory ability when compared to the LACE index as a predictor of hospital readmission within 30 days at a medium-sized university-affiliated teaching hospital in the midwestern United States.
