They scored hospitals in key performance areas: risk-adjusted mortality, risk-adjusted complications, core measures (a group of measures that assess process of care), percentage of coronary bypass patients with internal mammary artery use, 30-day mortality rates, 30-day readmission rates, severity-adjusted average length of stay, and wage- and severity-adjusted average cost.
Therefore, we aimed to determine patient- and hospital-level characteristics that may predict healthcare quality metrics: LOS, 30-day readmission, and 30-day mortality for the procedure.
