Abstract: An effective methodology for dealing with data extracted from clinical heart failure databases and the Public Health Database is proposed. A model for recurrent events is used for modeling the occurrence of hospital readmissions in time, thus deriving a suitable way to compute individual cumulative hazard functions. Estimated cumulative hazard trajectories are then treated as functional data, and their relation to clinical relevant responses is studied in the framework of generalized functional linear models.
