Abstract

We previously reported a predictive model that identified potentially modifiable risk factors for nonelective readmission to a county hospital. The objectives of this study were to determine if those risk factors were generalizable to a different population. We found that the previously reported risk factors were generalizable, and other potentially modifiable risk factors were identified in this population of veterans. However, further research is needed to establish whether or not the risk factors can be modified and whether or not modification improves outcomes.
