Improvement will require multilevel, coordinated efforts between stakeholders inclu...
NHS trusts across the country are facing unprecedented financial pressures, along with rising levels of demand and widespread variation in surgical quality and cost. There is a moral and financial imperative to provide the most efficient use of resources in order to ensure sustainability of a system that is free at the point of use, and provide consistently high-value care for patients across the country. Delivering 'value' does not mean any reduction in the quality of care - it means achieving the same or ...
The study analyzes the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) of the informatization of parasitic disease prevention and control in China, and puts forward the development strategies, in order to provide the reference for accelerating the informatization of parasitic disease prevention and control.
The use of outpatient health care services by homeless people is low compared to their high level of need; however, it is unclear whether this applies to surgical care. We sought to describe surgical care access among homeless patients in a Canadian tertiary care setting.
The extent to which financial considerations alter intensive care unit (ICU) decision making is poorly understood.
To take just one example: A 2017 meta-analysis published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews found that interventions with financial incentives-typically small vouchers ($50 monthly or less) for retail items like groceries-increased smoking cessation rates during pregnancy.
People need a financial protection system to face the high costs of health care.
MULTISOCIETY EXPERT CONSENSUS SYSTEMS OF CARE DOCUMENT 2018 AATS/ACC/SCAI/STS Expert Consensus Systems of Care Document: Operator and Institutional Recommendations and Requirements for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement.
Institutional harm reduction campaigns are essential in improving safe practice in critical care. Our institution embarked on an aggressive project to measure harm. We hypothesized that critically ill surgical patients were at increased risk of harm compared with medical intensive care patients.
Purchasing in health care financing refers to the transfer of pooled funds to health care providers for the provision of health care services. There is limited empirical work on purchasing arrangements and what is required for strategic purchasing in low- and middle-income countries. We conducted this study to critically assess the purchasing arrangements of the county departments of health (CDOH) who are the largest purchasers of health care in Kenya.
The financial risk not only affects the development of the company itself, but also affects the economic development of the whole society; therefore, the financial risk assessment of company is an important part. At present, numerous methods of financial risk assessment have been researched by scholars. However, most of the extant methods neither integrated fuzzy sets with quantitative analysis, nor took into account the historical data of the past few years. To settle these defects, this paper proposes a n...
Using New York City as an example, this research explores reasons for the consistently poor financial performance of three start-up health plans (Health Republic, CareConnect, and Oscar) while other health plans have performed relatively well in the same market.
There is a paucity of data regarding sex-based disparities in surgical care delivery, particularly in low- and middle-income countries. This study sought to determine whether sex disparities are present among patients presenting with surgical conditions in Malawi. Hypothesis compared to men, fewer women present to Kamuzu Central Hospital (KCH) with peritonitis and have longer delays in presentation for definitive care.
National organizations encourage communication about costs of cancer care; however, few data are available on health system models for identifying and assisting patients with financial distress (FD). We report the feasibility and acceptability of a financial counseling (FC) intervention for patients who receive chemotherapy at a comprehensive cancer center.
Bundled payment models assign financial responsibility for extended episodes of care up to 90 days after operation. The report by Koeckert and co-authors, in this issue of the Journal, describes 376 patients having either transcatheter aortic valve replacements (TAVR) or surgical aortic valve replacements (SAVR). They investigated the impact of readmissions on the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement initiative (BPCI) payment for Medicare valve patients. The authors' hospital was designated as a BPCI insti...
Cosmetic surgery tourism is thriving. Lower costs and all-inclusive cosmetic surgery holiday packages have led to more patients seeking cheaper aesthetic surgery abroad. However, limited postoperative care results in patients frequently presenting to NHS hospitals with postoperative complications requiring surgery.
The Care and Prevention in the United States Demonstration Project aimed to reduce HIV/AIDS-related morbidity and mortality among racial/ethnic minority groups in 8 states. We evaluated Health Models, a pay-for-performance program piloted by the Louisiana Department of Health that used financial incentives to improve rates of engagement in HIV medical care and viral suppression among people with HIV.
Surgery is among the most neglected parts of healthcare systems in low- and middle-income countries. Ethiopia has launched a national strategic plan to address challenges in the surgical system. This study aimed to assess surgical capacity in two Ethiopian regions to inform priority areas for improvement.
Endometriosis, a hormone-dependant condition affecting around 10% of women in their reproductive years, has frequent consequences on fertility. Indeed, a proportion of women will require assisted reproductive techniques or surgery in order to achieve pregnancy. Recent refining of stimulation protocols and vitrification techniques has created new possibilities in the field of fertility preservation. As a consequence, oocyte vitrification is now discussed not only in oncologic situations, but also in other co...
To describe inpatient satisfaction with surgical resident care given the increasing importance of patient satisfaction as a quality metric.
The recently re-named preimplantation genetic testing for determining embryo aneuploidies (PGT-A) is presently very popular although its acceptance by the scientific community is controversial. This approach still encounters drawbacks. This paper uses a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) analysis to discuss salient points to be considered when examining the PGT-A strategy in order to gather information from a range of perspectives. One of the strength associated with the procedure is re...
Medicare's prospective payment system for long-term acute-care hospitals (LTCHs) provides modest reimbursements at the beginning of a patient's stay before jumping discontinuously to a large lump-sum payment after a prespecified number of days. We show that LTCHs respond to the financial incentives of this system by disproportionately discharging patients after they cross the large-payment threshold. We find this occurs more often at for-profit facilities, facilities acquired by leading LTCH chains, and fac...
Increasing the number of underrepresented minority (URM) physicians improves access and quality of care. URMs are more likely to practice primary care and work in underserved communities. The racial and ethnic diversity of family physicians lags behind the general population. To create a more diverse residency, the Boston Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program (BMCFMRP) developed, implemented, and evaluated a strategic plan for diversity recruitment.
Nearly half of the countries in the world are in the process of reforming and strengthening their health care systems. More recently, even low-income and middle-income countries such as Mongolia have focused increasing attention on achieving universal health coverage (UHC). At this critical point, it is necessary to track recent progress and adjust health care strategies and planning. Therefore, this study analyzed changes in the health sector toward achieving UHC based on relevant literature, government do...
Global surgical care programs present obstetrician-gynecologists with important opportunities to address disparities in women's health and health care worldwide. However, these programs also present a unique set of practical and ethical challenges. Obstetrician-gynecologists are encouraged to participate in surgical care efforts abroad while taking the necessary steps to ensure that their patients can make informed decisions and receive benefit from and are not harmed by their surgical care. In this documen...
