The aim was to examine the predictive value of the MPI on unplanned hospital readmission in geriatric patients.

Record-based frailty assessment by MPI

The aim was to examine the reproducibility and diagnostic accuracy of a comprehensive frailty assessment method based solely on the older medical inpatient’s electronic medical record.

The aim was to examine the predictive value of the record-based MPI in terms of mortality, readmission and length of hospital stay.
