We investigated socioeconomic inequality (measured by the indicators highest attained education level and household income) in telephone triage on triage response (face-to-face contact), hospitalization and 30-day mortality among Danish citizens calling the medical helpline 1813 between 23 January and 9 February 2017. The analysis included 6869 adult callers from a larger prospective cohort study and showed that callers with low socioeconomic status (SES) were less often triaged to a face-to-face contact and had higher 30-day mortality than callers with high SES.
