The aim of this study was to identify, with soft clustering methods, multimorbidity patterns in the electronic health records of a population =65 years, and to analyse such patterns in accordance with the different prevalence cut-off points applied. Fuzzy cluster analysis allows individuals to be linked simultaneously to multiple clusters and is more consistent with clinical experience than other approaches frequently found in the literature.
