Project objectives

Healthscope wanted to risk adjust data to validly compare hospital acquired complications (HACs) between its 45 hospitals and over time for its hospitals. A secondary objective was to advise on the best approaches to visualise these data.


Our approach

HPA developed risk adjustment models for each HAC using logistic regression. Each logistic regression model was fitted using a generalised linear mixed model with a random effect for hospital. Visualisations were provided.


Healthscope used the outcomes of this project to provide feedback on the level of HACs to its hospitals.
