Informatics approaches to assessing patient frailty in surgical care

Patient frailty increases the risk for surgical complications, which are common, costly, and deadly, especially for older Americans. To improve surgical care for older adults, we will investigate whether electronic measures of frailty can help reduce complications by identifying which patients are likely to be readmitted to the hospital or die soon after surgery.
