complexwales reblogged this on complexwales and commented:

An interesting project and I'm looking forward to digging into the taxonomy a bit deeper, to see whether they are considering the typical complexity of each person as a predisposition for their eventual route through the system. Age and frailty are not significant attractors; yes, the majority of people are older and many are frail but those characteristics are not accurate determinants for particular outcomes. Interestingly, when we looked at journeys across acute care for this patient group within NHS Wales (data health warning aside) - across every organisation the distribution of patients being discharged to their usual place of residence changed significantly at about 19 days in hospital. At that tipping point, your chances of going home dropped by up to 50% and the cause was not due to any specific criteria, the effect simply randomised ie the driving characteristic appeared to be luck!
