Upcoming WebinarPredicting Unplanned Readmissions With the Pediatric Rothman Index

We are delighted that nationally recognized clinical informaticist Dr. William Feaster, Chief Medical Informatics Officer at CHOC, will join us for the Rothman Society’s second Research Focus webinar, as we turn our attention to reducing unplanned readmissions among children. Dr. Feaster will be joined by Louis Ehwerhemuepha, PhD, one of the lead data scientists who helped develop CHOC’s model. Together they will share the story behind the development of the model, the data components that make up the calculation, and review their criteria for additional sites to engage in further validation of their work.

Webinar attendees will:

  • Learn about the pRI and its development, and the key components that feed into the Index
  • Understand why the pRI is superior to existing tools for predicting patient deterioration, specifically PEWS
  • Learn the capabilities of the pRI to effectively reflect patient condition across the care continuum
  • Understand the key data points that feed into the model, and the results CHOC has seen
  • Absorb the background to development of CHOC’s readmission model
  • Learn about the opportunity to participate in the next phase of CHOC’s research
