Patients comorbidities, operations and complications can be associated with reduced long-term survival probability and increased healthcare utilisation. The aim of this research was to produce an adjusted case-mix model of comorbidity risk and develop a user-friendly toolkit to encourage public adaptation and incremental development.

It has been shown in healthcare research that demographics, temporal dimensions, length-of-stay and time between admissions, can noticeably improve the statistical measures related to comorbidities. The proposed model incorporates temporal aspects, medical procedures, demographics, and admission details, as well as diagnoses.

The research resulted in the development of Temporal-Comorbidity Adjusted Risk of Emergency Readmission (T-CARER) model using routinely collected hospital data.
