Re-Admission to National Health Service (NHS) Hospitals in England Within 30 Days of Discharge (Nuffield Trust / BMJ Open)

[A version of this item features in Dementia: the Latest Evidence Newsletter (Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust), Volume 3 Issue 4, November 2012].


An algorithm has been developed for identification of  in-patients at high risk of unplanned re-admission to NHS hospitals within 30 days of discharge. It is possible to identify subgroups of patients (for example, those with dementia) with a high proportion of patients who will be re-admitted within 30 days. The PARR model for predicting risk of readmissions has been updated (PARR-30), to make predictions over 30 days instead of 12 months.
