Little is known about the contribution of frailty in improving patient-level prediction beyond readily available clinical information. The objective of this study is to compare the predictive ability of 129 combinations of seven frailty markers (cognition, energy, mobility, mood, nutrition, physical activity, and strength) and quantify their contribution to predictive accuracy beyond age, sex, and number of chronic diseases.
