Table 5 Sequences commonly found among high-impact users as compared with other groups (P < 0.001, [UTI, urinary tract infection; RTI, respiratory tract infection; Chest s/s, cardiopulmonary signs and symptoms; Abdo s/s, abdominal signs and symptoms; INJ, external injuries; SALT, speech and swallowing disorders; HF, heart failure]). Other regions did not have particular sequences of readmissions identified

From: Regional variations in trajectories of long-term readmission rates among patients in England with heart failure
