Many older people entering hospitals have multiple medical problems and disabilities, requiring mute-disciplinary assessment by health workers and social care services. Errors of assessment made at this key time may have important long-term implications for individuals and health and care services. For example, remediable conditions may be overlooked, and older people may lose their independence unnecessarily. European-wide comparative research is needed to improve quality of care and to reduce inequity in such patients. A standardised system for measuring case-mix and outcome is required, but no existing system has been designed for use early in the hospital admission. The ACMEPLUS Project aims to produce a brief, European-standardised system for measuring case-mix and outcome people aged 65 years and over recently admitted to non-surgical hospital specialities.
