Decision rules for predicting vaccination status of preschool-age emergency department patients.
We produced and tested rules to predict undervaccination among preschoolage emergency department (ED) patients.
Data were gathered on demographics, vaccination status, health status, and health care utilization from parents, ED physicians, and ED charts at an urban teaching hospital in Rochester, N.Y. Primary care charts were reviewed to verify vaccination status.
Using recursive partitioning, we developed decision rules to predict undervaccination.
Decision rules were developed on a sample of 602 ED patients 4 to 48 months of age and then prospectively tested on 1832 ED patients aged 6 to 36 months.
