Estimating Long-Term Survival of Critically Ill Patients: The PREDICT Model
Kwok M. Ho , Matthew Knuiman, Judith Finn,Steven A. Webb
Media Originally for:
Demand for intensive care unit (ICU) services is increasing , and at a rate that is higher than the average for all health care services . Increase in treatment and monitoring technology, patients' expectations, and ageing population all contribute to this increased demand for intensive care services . Indeed, intensive care is increasingly being provided to older and sicker patients, whom in the past were not treated in intensive care . Intensive care services accounted for 10% of the US$2.1 trillion total health expenditures on health care in the United States in 2006  and has been estimated to cost more than £700 million in the United Kingdom in 1999 . The cost of intensive care services coupled with increasing demand provides the rationale for improved modelling of outcomes of critically ill patients.
