The Development and Testing of the Frailty Component of a Novel EHR-Based "Geriatric e-Risk" Measure for Predictive Modeling

The goal of this project is to develop advanced predictive modeling tools for high risk case detection and management for geriatric populations.  This effort will rely on EHRs, other advanced electronic data sources, existing claims and administrative data, and existing functional status instruments/surveys.  We hypothesize that evidence of the presences of frailty factors and underlying constructs are more likely discussed and described in various structured and unstructured portions of an EHR.
