This dataset is a random sample of 1000 seriously ill hospitalized patients from a famous study called “SUPPORT” (Study to Understand Prognoses Preferences Outcomes and Risks of Treatment). The original study included more than 10,000 patients from 5 U.S. hospitals. As the name suggests, the purpose of the study was to determine what factors affected or predicted outcomes, such as whether the patient died in the hospital or how long they remained in the hospital. The study was funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and is still the largest study of end-of-life care available. It helped lead to the growth of hospice and palliative care for seriously ill hospitalized adults. The study ended in 1995.
Many publications report results from this study, including the following: W.A. Knaus, F.E. Harrell, J Lynn, et al. (1995): The SUPPORT prognostic model: Objective estimates of survival for seriously ill hospitalized adults. Annals of Internal Medicine 122:191-203.
