The HOSPITAL Score: Potentially avoidable 30-day hospital readmissions
This simple prediction model identifies before discharge the risk of potentially avoidable 30-day readmission in medical patients. This score has potential to easily identify patients who may need more intensive transitional care interventions.

The HOSPITAL Score is intended for:
-        patients of at least 18 years about to be discharged from hospitals

The HOSPITAL Score is not intended for:
-        use outside of medical services
-        for patients who are not about to be discharged from hospital
-        for patients who are hospitalized for observational stays
