The focus of this Evidence Check is on generic risk factors and risk prediction approaches and it identified social and clinical risk factors with good evidence for inclusion in a risk stratification system. Best predictors may be slightly different for each desired outcome. There was very limited evidence that risk stratification associated with integrated care interventions systematically produced better system level outcomes. Overall, the predictive accuracy of many risk stratification tools is only moderate.
