Random forest based risk model for reliable and accurate prediction of risk of in-hospital mortality in patients undergoing PCI. This easy to use, validated model predicts post procedural in-hospital mortality following PCI. It is useful for benchmarking and guiding quality improvement.

The predictive model was developed using 22 pre-procedural clinical and laboratory variables to estimate the risk of in-hosptial mortality in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. This model was estimated using data from 120,090 PCI procedures occurring in the state of Michigan between January 1, 2010 and September 30, 2013.
