Risk Stratification designed specifically for high-risk populations

Frailty Comes of Age and Disrupts the Status Quo

The pandemic of 2020-2022 impacted the world of clinical risk stratification. Chronological age no longer mattered as much as physiological age. This "True Age", synonymous with a degree of risk for adverse outcomes, is quantified as the degree of frailty present.

Coming of Age

Frailty Risk Stratification is not a new concept. Studied for several decades and implemented internationally, it identifies the degree of risk present in order to direct care to the most vulnerable, prevent adverse outcomes where possible, prepare families for decline, and guide difficult conversations to inform patient-centered, risk-based decisions.

Disrupting the Status Quo

Disease-based care is less appropriate for the patient with multiple chronic conditions. It leads to more medications and increased diagnostics. Frailty-informed care considers the risks and benefits of a care plan, seeking to be proactive, not reactive, preventing poor outcomes where possible, and preparing patients and families for decline.

Patient Pattern takes routine data and calculates a Frailty Risk Score, presents clinical decision support to manage the risk and allows evidence-based principles of Geriatric Medicine to bridge any clinician knowledge gap.

Implementing risk stratification, by measuring frailty benefits:

  • Patients - Person-centered decisions based on risk
  • Families - Decisions based on an objective metric
  • Clinical Team - Optimize time with care focused on high risk patients
  • Administration - Readmissions and family complaints are reduced

The measurement of risk, the education of professionals, and the communication with patients/families frames an approach to care that improves quality and allows facilities to remain vital in the marketplace.
