The Second Simplified Acute Physiology Score (SAPS II) was created because published scoring systems were becoming increasingly sophisticated and time and money were needed to collect the data needed to use them.

Logistic regression analysis was used to assist in selecting the variables that would constitute SAPS II, deciding on appropriate groupings and point assignments for each variable, and converting the SAPS II score to a probability of hospital mortality.
