Association Between Hospitals’ Risk-Adjusted Emergency Department Visits and Survival and Costs in Kidney Cancer Patients Undergoing Nephrectomy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The study aimed to assess the relationship between a hospital's risk-adjusted emergency department (ED) visit rate and its risk-adjusted mortality rate and costs among kidney cancer patients undergoing nephrectomy as initial treatment. Hospitals’ risk-adjusted 30-day ED rates were not significantly associated with risk-adjusted mortality or costs. Although risk-adjusted 365-day ED rates were associated with significantly higher costs.
