Predictors and Outcomes of Emergency General Surgery (EGS)

Working with Dr. Vanessa Ho of MetroHealth and Case Western Reserve University, we use the Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey (MCBS) to identify predictors of emergency general surgery (EGS) as well as important factors which contribute to poor outcomes. These factors include everything from utilization and comorbidities, to functional status and other limitations in daily life.
