Learning from hospital mortality.
Stewart K, et al. Clin Med (Lond) 2016 - Review. PMID 27927816 Free PMC article.
Understanding and learning from hospital deaths is an important component of good clinical practice but current approaches and measures are complex, controversial and difficult to understand. ...Numerical measures of overall hospital mortality, such as hospital standardised mortality ratio (HSMR) or measures of 'preventable' deaths, are most unlikely to be helpful at a hospital level and may even give false reassurance, as accuracy of measurement is strongly influenced by factors apart from quality of care....

Hospital mortality in older patients in the Brazilian Unified Health System, Southeast region.
Cordeiro P and Martins M. Rev Saude Publica 2018 - Clinical Trial. PMID 30043953 Free PMC article.
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate factors associated with hospital death in older inpatients for specific diseases of the circulatory system in the Brazilian Unified Health System considering the risk-adjusted hospital mortality as an indicator of effectiveness. ...The variability in the risk-adjusted hospital mortality was great and comparatively higher in for-profit private hospitals. Despite the limits, the results favor the use of the risk-adjusted hospital mortality in the monitoring of the quality of hospital care provided to the older adult....

Measuring Hospital-Wide Mortality-Pitfalls and Potential.
Mackenzie SJ, et al. J Healthc Qual 2016. PMID 25103495
Risk-adjusted hospital-wide mortality has been proposed as a key indicator of system-level quality. Several risk-adjusted measures are available, and one-the hospital standardized mortality ratio (HSMR) - is publicly reported in a number of countries, but not in the United States. ...Risk-adjusted mortality can be used as an initial signal that a hospital's mortality rate is significantly higher than statistically expected, prompting further inquiry....

New ICD-10 version of the Charlson comorbidity index predicted in-hospital mortality.
Sundararajan V, et al. J Clin Epidemiol 2004. PMID 15617955
With the transition into ICD-10 coding worldwide, an ICD-10 version of the Deyo adaptation was developed and validated using population-based hospital data from Victoria, Australia. ...A strong association between increasing index scores and mortality exists: the area under the ROC curve is 0.865 for the last year using the ICD-9-CM version and remains high, at 0.855, for the ICD-10 version. ...

Identifying Increased Risk of Readmission and In-hospital Mortality Using Hospital Administrative Data: The AHRQ Elixhauser Comorbidity Index.
Moore BJ, et al. Med Care 2017. PMID 28498196
OBJECTIVE: We extend the literature on comorbidity measurement by developing 2 indices, based on the Elixhauser Comorbidity measures, designed to predict 2 frequently reported health outcomes: in-hospital mortality and 30-day readmission in administrative data. ...CONCLUSIONS: These indices are effective methods to incorporate the influence of comorbid conditions in models designed to assess the risk of in-hospital mortality and readmission using administrative data with limited clinical information, especially when small samples sizes are an issue....

National hospital mortality surveillance system: a descriptive analysis.
Cecil E, et al. BMJ Qual Saf 2018. PMID 30297377 Free PMC article.
OBJECTIVE: To provide a description of the Imperial College Mortality Surveillance System and subsequent investigations by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in National Health Service (NHS) hospitals receiving mortality alerts. BACKGROUND: The mortality surveillance system has generated monthly mortality alerts since 2007, on 122 individual diagnosis and surgical procedure groups, using routinely collected hospital administrative data for all English acute NHS hospital trusts. ...

Hospital mortality following trauma: an analysis of a hospital-based injury surveillance registry in sub-Saharan Africa.
Tyson AF, et al. J Surg Educ 2015. PMID 25451718
OBJECTIVES: This study evaluates the mortality for hospitalized trauma patients at a tertiary care hospital in Malawi. DESIGN: This study is a retrospective analysis of prospectively collected trauma surveillance data. ...MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Predictors of in-hospital mortality. RESULTS: The study population consisted of 7559 patients, with an average age of 27 years (±18 years) and a male predominance of 76%. ...

Heterogeneous effects of patient choice and hospital competition on mortality.
Moscelli G, et al. Soc Sci Med 2018. PMID 30265998 Free article.
We examine whether the relaxation of constraints on patient choice of hospital in the English National Health Service in 2006 led to greater changes in mortality for hospitals which faced more rivals before the choice reform. ...Since mortality risk varies by sub-diagnoses of AMI and stroke we include indicators for sub-diagnoses in the covariates. We also allow for the effect of covariates on mortality to differ before and after the 2006 choice reform. ...
