PURPOSE: The simplified pulmonary embolism severity index (sPESI) is a well validated tool for risk stratification of patients with pulmonary embolism (PE). A PE patient is classified as ‘high risk’ based on the presence of any of the following variables: Age > 80; history of cancer; history of chronic cardiopulmonary disease; heart rate ≥ 110; systolic BP < 100mmHg or oxygen saturation < 90% at time of PE diagnosis. We aimed to develop and validate an automated search algorithm (Strategy) to retrospectively identify patients with ‘high risk’ PE by analyzing the electronic medical record (EMR)
