The Duke Severity of Illness Checklist (DUSOI) is a ten-item checklist that may be completed by clinical providers and auditors to produce validated quantitative severity scores (by diagnosis, overall, and for comorbidity) based on clinical judgment. The DUSOI is useful in controlling for severity of illness in clinical studies and indicating the outcome of medical care in terms of reduction in severity of illness following medical interventions.
