Modeling changes in assessments to predict needs and guide care planning in home care

This study developed a predictive frailty measure for seniors receiving home care by applying advanced analytic methods to data from the Resident Assessment Instrument - Homecare (RAI-HC). Because the new frailty measure was based on the RAI-HC, it can be used in multiple Canadian jurisdictions as well as other countries.
