The goal of this collaboration was to develop and validate a risk score to predict mortality and disability or institutionalization in stroke patients based on information routinely available to clinicians at hospital presentation, such as demographic features, clinical presentation, and patient co-morbid conditions. The result is the IScore, a validated tool that may assist clinicians in estimating the risk of death, disability and institutionalization during the initial assessment in the emergency department or early after hospital admission for acute ischemic stroke.
