Web tool spots patients at risk of being readmitted to hospital

 

The Straits Times reported on the development of an online “calculator” that can predict a person's risk of ending up in hospital again. The project was conducted by Ph.D. candidate Mr Sreemanee Raaj DORAJOO and supervised by Prof Alexandre CHAN, who are both from the Department of Pharmacy. The tool can help healthcare teams reduce readmission cases by identifying high-risk patients for targeted intervention, either during admission or after they are discharged.
