Hospital-Level Relationships Between Risk Factors for Severe COVID-19 and COVID-19 Hospitalization Rates

Following up on our previous work on County-Level Relationships Between Risk Factors for Severe COVID-19 and Deaths, we applied similar methods to hospital-level data to explore the relationship between the prevalence of several hospital-level risk factors for severe COVID-19 and corresponding COVID-19 hospitalization rates at those hospitals. We used historical hospital inpatient, emergency department, and ambulatory surgery discharge records for California hospitals to estimate the patient population prevalence of several potential risk factors […]

County-Level Relationships Between Risk Factors for Severe COVID-19 and Deaths

More than 190,000 COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in California as of June 2020, resulting in over 5,600 deaths. Several potential risk factors for developing severe COVID-19 have been identified, including older age and various underlying medical conditions. HQI estimated the relationships between county-wide prevalence of several of these risk factors and COVID-19-related deaths/death rates in California counties using estimates of prevalence from historical statewide hospital  inpatient, emergency department, and ambulatory surgery discharge records.
