The willingness to receive sexually transmitted infection services from public healthcare facilities among key populations at risk for human immunodeficiency virus infection in Bangladesh: A qualitative study.
In Bangladesh, community-based and peer-led prevention interventions for human immunodeficiency virus infection are provided to key populations (KPs) by drop-in centers (DICs), which are primarily supported by external donors. This intervention approach was adopted because public healthcare facilities were reportedly insensitive to the needs and culture of KPs, particularly with regard to the provision of sexually transmitted infection (STI) services. Nonetheless, in the absence of external funding, STI ser...
An evaluation of universal vouchers as a demand-side subsidy to change primary care utilization: A retrospective analysis of longitudinal services utilisation and voucher claims data from a survey cohort in Hong Kong.
To incentivize private primary care utilization and reduce reliance on public healthcare services, Elderly Healthcare Voucher Scheme has been implemented to provide a voucher entitlement to entire older resident population for subsidising their purchase of unspecified primary healthcare services in the private sector. Our study assessed whether voucher usage is associated with reduced utilization of public healthcare services. We retrieved the public healthcare services utilization and voucher transaction d...
Payers and purchasers in the United States seek to moderate drug prices and align them with the incremental clinical benefit offered by individual medications; some policymakers have proposed linking U.S. prices to an index of prices paid in other nations. The German health care system resembles that of the United States in featuring multiple private payers but differs in featuring a highly coordinated process of comparative clinical assessment and price negotiations for drugs.
In 2012, The Netherlands established the so-called "free market experiment", which allowed providers of dental care to set the prices for their dental services themselves. The introduction of market mechanisms is intended to improve the quality of care and to contribute to cost containment, but increasing health expenditures for citizens have been observed in this context. Using large-volume health insurance claims data and exploiting the 2012 experiment in Dutch dental care, we identified the effects of a ...
The extent of price variation across a local market has important implications for value-based purchasing. Using a new data set containing health care prices for nearly every insurer-provider-service triad across a large local market, we comprehensively examined variation in fee-for-service paid commercial prices in Massachusetts for 291 predominantly outpatient medical services. Prices varied considerably across hospital service areas. Prices for medical services at acute hospitals were, on average, 76 pe...
In the period shortly after discharge from inpatient to community mental health care, people are at increased risk of self-harm, suicide, and readmission to hospital. Discharge interventions including peer support have shown potential, and there is some evidence that community-based peer support reduces readmissions. However, systematic reviews of peer support in mental health services indicate poor trial quality and a lack of reporting of how peer support is distinctive from other mental health support. Th...
Non-communicable disease (NCD) corners in public sector health facilities in Bangladesh: a qualitative study assessing challenges and opportunities for improving NCD services at the primary healthcare level.
To explore healthcare providers' perspective on non-communicable disease (NCD) prevention and management services provided through the NCD corners in Bangladesh and to examine challenges and opportunities for strengthening NCD services delivery at the primary healthcare level.
Telehealth services can improve the quality of health services for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) management, but the clinical benefits for patients yet not clear. It is crucial to develop a strategy that supports the engagement of healthcare professionals to promote the sustainable adoption of telehealth services further. The aim of the study was to show how variables related to the perception of telehealth services for COPD by different healthcare professionals interact to influence its adop...
The escalation of conflict in the Middle East coincides with an emerging trend of attacks on healthcare. Protection of health personnel, health services and humanitarian workers is no longer respected. This compromises the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 3 - towards health for all, and 16 - towards justice and peace. The Centre for Global Health at the University of Oslo, the Peace Research Institute Oslo and the Norwegian Red Cross co-organised a meeting exploring how confli...
Despite enthusiasm for the potential cost savings of embedding supportive services in senior housing, few population health studies have empirically examined such associations. We investigated the extent to which associations between housing plus services in senior housing and healthcare expenditures depend upon residents' instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) impairment and the level of services available.
Australia has a universal public healthcare system, but access to eHealth services (i.e. use of the Internet and related technologies for healthcare services) remains a remarkable challenge, particularly in regional, rural and remote communities. Similar to many other countries, Australia faces the challenges of an ageing population and chronic disease management as well as balancing the supply of and the demand for quality healthcare and advanced medical procedures. The prima facie case for inequality in a...
Strong and effective workforce models are essential for improving comprehensive Indigenous primary healthcare service (PHC) provision to Indigenous peoples in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the USA (CANZUS nations). This review systematically scoped the literature for studies that described or evaluated models and systems that support the sustainability, capacity or growth of the Indigenous PHC workforce to provide effective PHC provision.
First Nations women who live on rural and remote reserves in Canada leave their communities between 36 and 38 weeks gestational age to receive labor and birthing services in large urban centers. The process and administrative details of this process are undocumented despite decades of relocation as a routine component of maternity care. Using data from 32 semistructured interviews and information from peer-reviewed literature, grey literature, and public documents, I constructed a descriptive map and a vi...
With the integration of behavioral health services into primary care and other medical specialties, the community of providers and the public must address a number of questions, including: What models of care are there for these services? What kinds of providers supply these services? Are these providers trained behavioral health providers or extenders in some form? And, as these systems of care are constructed, who makes use of them? The purpose of this study is to address these questions as well as to con...
Linguistic and ethnic diversity is a feature of patient profiles at almost all public healthcare facilities in urban areas in Australia. Patients with limited proficiency in the socially dominant language - in this case Limited English proficiency (LEP) patients - commonly form a significant patient group in public healthcare settings. Communication barriers that exist between patients and healthcare professionals necessitate the provision of translation and interpreting (T&I) services. This study presents ...
Perinatal opioid use disorder (OUD) has increased drastically since 2000 and is associated with myriad adverse outcomes. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) recommends using peer support services to promote sustained remission from substance use disorders (SUDs). Integrating peer support specialists into perinatal OUD treatment has the potential to improve maternal and child health. However, there is limited published research on the experiences of pregnant and parenting w...
With managed competition, selective contracting and the appointing of preferred providers are important instruments for health insurers to improve their bargaining position in the healthcare purchasing market. Insurers can offer enrollees extra services, such as advice about their healthcare, to attract them, ensure that they remain loyal, and to channel them to preferred providers. We investigate which advice services insurers in the Dutch system of managed competition offer enrollees, how they inform them...
Analyzing the indices that allow to improve population health by, for example, improving the quality of healthcare services and increasing accessibility to these services is among the priorities of the World Health Organization (WHO). This is of particular importance in Poland, as the psychiatric care reform is being carried out in accordance with the National Mental Healthcare Program guidelines. The aim of the study is to analyze mental health services provided to adults and reported to the National Healt...
First Nations peoples in Ontario are facing increasing rates of cancer and have been found to have poorer survival. Cancer screening is an important strategy to improve cancer outcomes; yet, Indigenous people in Canada are less likely to participate in screening. Ontario has established organized breast, cervical and colorectal cancer screening programs; this paper examines the health policy context that informs these programs for First Nations peoples in the province.
Peer recovery specialists (PRSs) combine their personal experiences with substance use and recovery with clinical skills to support patients in treatment for or recovery from substance use. This paper provides evaluation findings from a SAMHSA-funded program that integrated a PRS team into a primary care clinic to assess the efficacy of PRS support on patients' substance use, healthcare involvement, and criminal justice involvement. PRSs provided a range of services to patients with histories of incarcerati...
The present systematic review aimed to assess the healthcare financing system by studying the relevant indicators in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The focus of this research was on the entire healthcare system without considering any specific healthcare service or population group. This article explains the conditions of equity in people's payments for healthcare services in LMICs and focuses on the strengths and weaknesses of successful or failed healthcare systems.
Youths in South Africa are poor utilizers of HIV health services. Medecins Sans Frontieres has been piloting youth-adapted services at a youth clinic in Khayelitsha, including a peer virtual mentorship program over mobile phones, piloted from March 2015 to May 2016.
Forced migration is at record levels, leading many European countries to seek to limit immigration or control access to public services. The UK has introduced upfront healthcare charging for overseas patients, with exceptions for certain groups and services. Confusion over these regulations amongst healthcare professionals risks care being inappropriately delayed or denied. This is pertinent within sexual and reproductive health and HIV care where sensitivity and timely management are essential.
Various healthcare services in Japan provide self-management interventions for older people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). To examine the influence of healthcare service utilisation on self-management activities, we conducted a cross-sectional survey of older people with COPD who received care through outpatient clinics (OC), outpatient rehabilitation centres (OR) or home care (HC) services.
