A recently released Israeli-US study suggests how to identify patients likely to be readmitted so that medical professionals can intervene before another hospitalization.  Israel 21c quotes Ono scientist and coauthor Ofir Ben-Assuli who says, “Based on the results of our study, high-risk patients can be identified earlier, which will result in better care in the Emergency Department, appropriate and timely interventions for coordinated and personalized care in inpatient and ambulatory settings, and better allocation of resources”.
