An educational healthcare circuit (EHC) is proposed with the objective of preventing weight recovery of patients after bariatric surgery through education and lifestyle change. The objective of this study was to measure the viability of the EHC (shared medical appointments [SMAs] combined with bariatric surgery) through cost-effectiveness analysis. The EHC presented in this study is innovative because it offers a multidisciplinary approach based on medical, psychological and dietetic expertise to combat obesity. The strategy is to give the patient a diagnosis and then a personalised follow-up.

A method of comparing the cost of a program with its expected benefits in dollars (or other currency). The benefit-to-cost ratio is a measure of total return expected per unit of money spent. This analysis generally excludes consideration of factors that are not measured ultimately in economic terms. Cost effectiveness compares alternative ways to achieve a specific set of results.
Surgical procedures aimed at producing major WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with MORBID OBESITY.
The personal cost of acute or chronic disease. The cost to the patient may be an economic, social, or psychological cost or personal loss to self, family, or immediate community. The cost of illness may be reflected in absenteeism, productivity, response to treatment, peace of mind, QUALITY OF LIFE, etc. It differs from HEALTH CARE COSTS, meaning the societal cost of providing services related to the delivery of health care, rather than personal impact on individuals.
Information relating to itemized coding of procedures and costs associated with healthcare delivery, used as a means for tracking healthcare utilization, patterns of care, and treatment outcomes.
Activities related to WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with OBESITY. Treatment methods include DIET; EXERCISE; BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION; medications; and BARIATRIC SURGERY.
