Summary:
Hospital readmission rates are considered to be an important indicator of quality of care because they may be a consequence of actions of commission or omission made during the initial hospitalization of the patient, or as a consequence of poorly managed transition of the patient back into the community. The negative impact on patient quality of life and huge burden on healthcare system have made reducing hospital readmissions a central goal of healthcare delivery and payment reform efforts. In this project, we will focus on COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) which is one of the leading causes of disability and mortality worldwide. This project will design and develop a prognostic COPD healthcare management system which is a sustainable clinical decision-support system to reduce the number of readmissions by identifying those patients who need preventive interventions to reduce the probability of being readmitted. Based on patient’s clinical records and discharge summary, our system would be able to determine the readmission risk profile of patients treated for COPD. Suitable interventions could then be initiated with the objective of providing quality and timely care that helps prevent avoidable readmission.
