To evaluate whether a mixed population of patients treated with Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) would exhibit reduced healthcare costs in long-term follow-up.
Improving the quality of health care has been a focus of health reformers during the last 2 decades, yet meaningful and sustainable quality improvement has remained elusive in many ways. Although a number of individual institutions have made great strides toward more effective and efficient care, progress has not gone far enough on a national scale. Barriers to quality of care lie in fundamental, systemwide factors that impede large-scale change. Notable among these is the third-party financing arrangement ...
To assess the value of organized care by comparing the clinical outcomes and healthcare expenditure between the conventional Japanese "integrated care across specialties within one hospital" mode of providing healthcare and the prospective approach of "organized care across separate facilities within a community".
Parkinson's disease psychosis (PDP) is a costly, debilitating condition that generally develops several years after diagnosis of Parkinson's disease (PD). PD is the second-most common neurodegenerative disease, and it imposes a significant burden on the healthcare system. Non-motor symptoms commonly manifest in PD, contributing to the severity of a patient's disability. The neuropsychiatric symptoms that are common in PD can be a significant source of distress to patients and caregivers. Recent studies have...
This study aims for health gain and cost reduction in the care for people with long-term non-psychotic psychiatric disorders. Present care for this population has a limited evidence base, is often open ended, little effective, and expensive. Recent epidemiological data shows that 43.5% of the Dutch are affected by mental illness during their life. About 80% of all patients receiving mental health services (MHS) have one or more non-psychotic disorders. Particularly for this group, long-term treatment and ca...
In the context of an ageing European population, point prevalence surveys (PPS) of healthcare-associated infection and antimicrobial use in long-term care facilities (HALT) in Europe were commissioned by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. Sixty-nine Irish long-term care facilities (LTCFs) took part in the first survey in 2010. A series of interventions to raise the profile of infection prevention and control and antimicrobial stewardship in Irish LTCFs followed. HALT was repeated in Ire...
To evaluate the long-term cost-effectiveness of ticagrelor and ASA versus generic and branded clopidogrel and ASA in patients with ACS based on a Thai cost database.
Outcomes and long-term survival rates after liver transplantation have significantly improved over the last 5 decades, but the improved longevity is accompanied by long-term complications such as metabolic syndrome, obesity, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and bone disease. After the first year, the primary care physician assumes a greater role and provides most of the patient's care. This review provides a source for primary care physicians in managing the long-term medical complications seen in these pati...
Long-term care social insurance schemes exist in a number of countries while the introduction of such schemes enjoys some support in others. Israel's long-term care social insurance scheme has been operating since 1988. This article examines the emergence, goals, design, and impacts of this scheme and draws out some of the lessons that can be learned from Israel's quarter century experience of long-term care social insurance.
Reducing hospital readmissions is a priority for health care providers and affects Medicare reimbursement. The purpose of this study was to determine whether there is a significant difference in readmission rates from long-term care facilities to hospitals with the implementation of a training program for long-term care nurses. The main findings revealed that the training did not significantly affect hospital readmissions; however, the organization saw a significant decrease in hospital readmissions after 2...
With a rapidly aging population and a decline in the availability of family caregivers, the number of elders in China who have unmet long-term care needs is increasing. Because unmet needs often have negative consequences, it is increasingly important to identify factors associated with unmet needs. Utilizing Andersen's behavioral model of health services use, this study examines the roles of predisposing factors (demographics), enabling factors (resources), and need (e.g., illness level) in long-term care ...
Data from the SINGLE trial demonstrated that 88% of treatment-naïve HIV-1 patients treated with dolutegravir and abacavir/lamivudine (DTG+ABC/3TC) achieved viral suppression at 48 weeks compared with 81% of patients treated with efavirenz/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate/emtricitabine (EFV/TDF/FTC). It is unclear how this difference in short-term efficacy impacts long-term cost-effectiveness of these regimens. This study sought to evaluate long-term cost-effectiveness of DTG+ABC/3TC versus EFV/TDF/FTC from a ...
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disorder of the central nervous system that is associated with disability, reduced quality of life, extensive medical and nonmedical costs, and lost productivity. Specialty medications that are crucial to effective disease management, helping to prevent debilitating episodes of relapse, account for a substantial portion of the medical expenditures associated with MS. Although these therapies are not considered cost-effective by conventional definitions, they are comparable to on...
Person-centered Care (PCC) is an innovative approach which seeks to improve the quality of care services given to the care-dependent elderly. At present there are no Spanish language instruments for the evaluation of PCC delivered by elderly care services. The aim of this work is the adaptation and validation of the Person-centered Care Assessment Tool (P-CAT) for a Spanish population.
Substance use disorders are regarded as one of the most prevalent, deadly and costly of health problems. Research has consistently found that the prevalence of other psychiatric disorders among those with substance related disorders is substantial. Combined, these disorders lead to considerable disability and health years lost worldwide as well as extraordinary societal costs. Relatively little of the literature on substance dependence and its impact on healthcare utilization and associated costs has focuse...
Patient-centered care is an important goal in the delivery of healthcare. However, many patients do not engage in preventive medical care. In this pilot study, we conducted twenty in depth, semi-structured qualitative interviews at the University of Illinois at Chicago Health Sciences campus in a four month time frame. Many patients were underserved and underinsured, and we wanted to understand their experiences in the healthcare system. Using content analysis, several themes emerged from the interview data...
The purpose of this study was to estimate healthcare costs associated with diabetes-related lower-limb amputations (LLAs) within the Veterans Health Administration (VHA). We performed a cross-sectional comparative analysis of 3,381 VHA clinic users in fiscal year (FY) 2004 and 3,403 clinic users in FY2010 identified as having type 2 diabetes mellitus and nontraumatic LLA. LLA expenditures related to inpatient medical, inpatient surgical, and outpatient care were estimated using VHA Health Economics Resource...
To explore physician practice patterns with regard to antithrombotic therapy, including antiplatelets and anticoagulants, in long-term care residents and compare resulting embolic complications.
To evaluate long-term outcomes among a population of very old patients (≥80years) after nonelective intensive care unit (ICU) admission.
Current available mobile health technologies make possible earlier diagnosis and long-term monitoring of patients with cardiovascular diseases. Remote monitoring of patients with implantable devices and chronic diseases has resulted in better outcomes reducing health care costs and hospital admissions. New care models, which shift point of care to the outpatient setting and the patient's home, necessitate innovations in technology.
There is a common misperception that palliative care is just another term for hospice care. Although it includes hospice, palliative care is also the long-term coordinated care of the chronically ill, which is delivered at a cost savings. Why does it matter that the average American understand what palliative care means? Because the evidence shows that U.S. patients near the end of life are spending exorbitant amounts of money on health care they do not want and the country cannot afford.To better understan...
From November 2010 to August 2013, 161 adults with acquired brain injury in Massachusetts transitioned from long-term care settings to the community through a Medicaid-funded waiver. Most participants transitioned with minimal risk; for some, the transition resulted in an increase in risk incidents above the rest. Specifically, despite risk mitigation efforts, 11% of the participants accounted for more than 75% of the reported first year incidents.
Following a national policy shift towards universal access to antiretroviral therapy (ART) in Malawi, hospitals and clinics around the country made major changes to enable the provision of ART. In this already resource-limited environment, the provision of ART brought new healthcare delivery challenges to bear on both patients and healthcare professionals. The substance and form of these local interventions are affected by a multilayered global context. Drawing on fieldwork in an antiretroviral clinic in ru...
