Upton, Sarah, Culshaw, Michael, Culshaw, Margaret and Stephenson, John (2015) A preliminary study identifying prescription factors associated with readmission. In: Health Services Research and Pharmacy Practice Conference HSRPP 2015, 16th & 17th April 2015, Queen’s University Belfast.
The LACE index (1) is used by Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust to refer patients to a Virtual Ward, providing post discharge support with a view to preventing readmissions. Derivation of the LACE index found the Charlson comorbidity index (CCI) predictive of readmission; conditions in the CCI are likely to be treated with medication.
