TeleswallowingPopulation Risk Stratification: Deployment of Stratification methods in the Basque Country

Name Population Risk Stratification: Deployment of Stratification methods in the Basque Country
Organisation Basque Ministry of Health
Location Spain
Application area Tools for identifying risk groups and evalute healthcare resources
Description Within the Basque Country healthcare system, a customized version of the Adjusted Clinical Groups (ACG) Predictive Model is used for risk stratification (RS). To stratify by use of healthcare resources allows identifying and selecting target populations that may benefit from specific programs of action. The RS model is based on diagnoses, socio-demographic data, pharmacy data, prior health care utilization, and socio-economic data. Currently work is being carried out to develop mechanisms to perform a periodic evaluation and optimization of the RS model, and to improve the tool enabling data collection in a more regular basis.
