My latest analysis on #COVID19 trends is out now in my River City Data newsletter. MO now has the second-highest rate of new cases nationally, with four of the top ten highest rates at the county level as well. And rates are continuing to rise "outstate." https://t.co/7EM5RB27NW

This significant #HealthEquity problem is current #HealthPolicy in many US states and US hospitals. We must reform CSC prior to the next public health emergency.

Up to 2% of black patients might be inappropriately deprioritized from intermediate to lowest priority. These patients who are inappropriately assigned lowest priority account for up to 56% of all the lowest priority Black patients. 6/n

We used the eICU dataset to quantify the number of patients who might be impacted. In a general ICU population, up to 15% of Black patients might be inappropriately deprioritized from highest priority to second priority. 5/n

This is true after adjusting for age, comorbidity burden, reason for ICU admission, and hospital. 4/n

However, Black and White patients with equivalent SOFA scores don't have equivalent survival. Black patients actually have better survival than White patients with equivalent SOFA scores. So the rationing tool is more stringent for Black compared to White patients. 3/n

Current CSC use the SOFA score to rank patients for medical resources that need to be rationed. The idea is that lower SOFA scores are associated with better survival, so we should direct resources to patients with lower SOFA scores to minimize futile care during shortages. 2/n

Out today! Crisis Standards of Care (CSC) are guidelines for rationing medical resources during public health emergencies, like pandemics. Unfortunately, current CSC in the USA use a rationing tool that creates bias against Black patients. 1/n @WF_Parker https://t.co/SKHIyRN0UT
