This research intends to compare the classification performance of re-hospitalization of diabetes patients using multiclass or multinomial classification and 2 cases of binary classification in logistic regression and decision tree techniques. The data used in the study are diabetes patients from Clinical Care at 130 US Hospitals and Integrated Delivery Networks. The patients were divided into 3 groups, i.e. not re-hospitalization, less than 30 days of re-hospitalization and more than 30 days of re-hospitalization. By comparing the classification techniques, it can be concluded that the classification by decision tree technique using 2 cases of binary classification yields the best result.
