Exploratory data analysis.
<p>A. “Time to event” analysis. The ED revisit “time-to-event curve” showed a pattern of a rapid accrual with a stable and consistent ED visit rate thereafter. The population ED revisit curves, of patients with or without past history of ED visits, decreased significantly within 30 days from the ED discharge time, indicating that a 30-day cutoff is clinically reasonable. B. Our analysis found that both the total number and the percentage of patients with future 30-day ED visits increased as a functional of either the distinct chronic diagnoses (left panel) or the ED visit counts (right) in the prior 12 months.</p
