The effect of inadequate access to healthcare services on emergency room visits. A comparison between physical and mental health conditions.

This paper estimates the influence of inadequate access to healthcare services on the rate of Emergency Room (ER) hospital visits in Australia. We take micro-data on different types of healthcare shortfalls from the 2012 Australian Survey of Disability, Aging and Carers, and employ Propensity Score Matching (PSM) techniques to identify their effects on ER visits. We find that shortfalls in access to various medical services increases ER visits for individuals with mental and physical conditions by about the...

Sex differences in childhood infections are commonly reported in case-only studies. In this population-based study of 278K Taiwanese children followed from 3 months to 18 years old during 2000-2012, we compared age-trajectories of monthly numbers of all-cause healthcare visits and monthly rates of infection-specific healthcare visits in boys and girls. In all-cause healthcare visits and in healthcare visits related to conjunctivitis, respiratory tract infections, enteritis, hand-foot-mouth disease and herpa...

Food insecurity, healthcare utilization, and high cost: a longitudinal cohort study.

Reducing utilization of high-cost healthcare services is a common population health goal. Food insecurity-limited access to nutritious food owing to cost-is associated with chronic disease, but its relationship with healthcare utilization is understudied. We tested whether food insecurity is associated with increased emergency department (ED) visits, hospitalizations, and related costs.

Unplanned Emergency Department Visits within 30-Days of Mastectomy and Breast Reconstruction.

Unplanned emergency department (ED) visits are often overlooked as an indicator of care quality. Our objectives were to (1) determine the rate of 30-day ED visits following mastectomy with or without immediate reconstruction, (2) perform a risk analysis of potential factors associated with ED return, and (3) assess for potentially preventable visits with a focus on returns for pain.

Assessing Differences in Understanding of Companion-Animal Preventive Care between a Veterinary Healthcare Team and Pet Owners in a Veterinary Teaching Hospital.

Preventive healthcare visits to primary care veterinary practices in the United States have been on the decline over the past decade. One of the main factors that has been identified is a lack of understanding by pet owners regarding the importance of preventive care. The Partners for Healthy Pets Opportunity Survey was adapted for use in this study to determine whether there were differences in perceptions of a veterinary healthcare team between team members and clients, specifically regarding preventive c...

The association between outpatient follow-up visits and all-cause non-elective 30-day readmissions: A retrospective observational cohort study.

As an effort to reduce hospital readmissions, early follow-up visits were recommended by the Society of Hospital Medicine. However, published literature on the effect of follow-up visits is limited with mixed conclusions. Our goal here is to fully explore the relationship between follow-up visits and the all-cause non-elective 30-day readmission rate (RR) after adjusting for confounders.

Pain Agreements and Healthcare Utilization in a Veterans Affairs Primary Care Population: A Retrospective Chart Review.

The prevalence of chronic pain is enormous. In America, the management of chronic pain and opioids remains a critical focus. Guidelines recommend pain agreements as part of the management of chronic pain and opioids; however, evidence of improvement in patient outcomes is lacking. An aspect of patient outcome includes utilization of healthcare resources, such as emergency department visits and hospitalizations. It remains uncertain whether the use of pain agreements lessens healthcare utilization.

An investigation of the effect of accessibility to General Practitioner services on healthcare utilisation among older people.

Equity in access to healthcare services is regarded as an important policy goal in the organisation of modern healthcare systems. Physical accessibility to healthcare services is recognised as a key component of access. Older people are more frequent and intensive users of healthcare, but reduced mobility and poorer access to transport may negatively influence patterns of utilisation. We investigate the extent to which supply-side factors in primary healthcare are associated with utilisation of General Prac...

Informal healthcare sector and marginalized groups: Repeat visits in rural North India.

The interrelationship between the public and private sectors, and formal and informal healthcare sectors effects market-level service quality, pricing behaviour and referral networks.
