Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

Objective: The study aim to establish high risk admission model and readmission model for elderly in Taiwan.
Method: Investigators compare the clinical, epidemiological, and socioeconomic characteristics of admitted patients during 1 August,2011 to 31 July,2012. All patients will follow up to end of study to identify 14 days readmission and 30 days readmission to geriatic ward.
Expected Outcomes: (1) To compare the prediction value of derivation cohort and validation cohort. (2) To identify high risk indicators of admission and readmission for elderly. (3) To determine the risk factors in admission elderly association with quality indicators.
