Toolbox

The UMass Surgical Outcomes Analysis & Research group has developed a number of tools to help predict outcomes after operations, including in-hospital mortality and complications. These "risk scores" stratify patients in various settings according to their specific characteristics and circumstances. Please note that these resources are intended as research tools; they describe national averages only, and the estimates they provide must be interpreted in context by an experienced clinician. The following tools are available:

  • A Simple Risk Score for Pancreatectomy 
    The score is designed to augment, not replace clinician judgment and informed consent, and must be interpreted in the context of the individual patient and surgeon.
