New prediction model can forecast personalized risk for COVID-19-related hospitalization

Cleveland Clinic researchers have developed and validated a risk prediction model (called a nomogram) that can help physicians predict which patients who have recently tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, are at greatest risk for hospitalization. This new model, published in PLOS One, is the second COVID-19-related nomogram that the research team has developed.
