From: Using the LACE index to predict hospital readmissions in congestive heart failure patients

Figure 1

Showed ROC of the LACE index score to predict post discharge ED revisits at 30, 60, and 90 days. The C-statistic of the logistic regression for the LACE index to predict post discharge 30 days ED revisits is 0.6637 (95% CI: 0.5750-0.7523), 60 days post discharge ED revisits is 0.6307 (95% CI: 0.5485-0.7128), and that of the post discharge 90 days ED revisits is 0.6029 (95% CI: 0.5248-0.6809) which was more accurate than predicting hospital readmissions at the same time period in the study population though still not overwhelming (C-statistic <0.7).
