(CORE) Readmission Risk Calculators iPhone App - It's Free!

The (CORE) Readmission Risk Calculators iPhone® App predicts a patient’s likelihood of hospital readmission within 30 days of discharge for heart attack, heart failure, or pneumonia. These calculators estimate risk of readmission based on a patient’s demographic and clinical characteristics and are based on medical record chart models developed for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to validate the publicly reported readmission measure for each condition. The app is in response to requests from users of our Online Readmission Risk Calculators. It also allows users to both save and email readmission risk data for later use. The app is available as a free download from the App Store℠.
