Emergency Department Utilization among Kidney Transplant Recipients in the United States.

Patients with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) use the emergency department (ED) at a 6-fold higher rate than U.S. adults. No national studies have described ED utilization rates among kidney transplant (KTx) recipients, and the factors associated with higher ED utilization. We examined a cohort of 132,725 adult KTx recipients in the United States Renal Data System (2005-2013). ED visits, hospitalization, and outpatient nephrology visits were obtained from Medicare claims databases. Nearly half (46.1%) of KTx...

Orthostatic hypotension acutely impairs executive functions in Parkinson's disease.

Orthostatic hypotension is a frequent non-motor symptom of Parkinson's disease, with negative prognostic role on cognitive functions. Here we measured the acute effects of orthostatic hypotension on executive functions in Parkinson's disease patients devoid of hypertension, carotid artery stenosis, and significant chronic cerebrovascular pathology. Measurements were carried out during regular visits in outpatient setting. Twenty-eight Parkinson's disease patients were recruited and studied along scheduled o...


Younger Age and Language Barriers are Associated with Non-adherence to Clinical Follow-up in Hepatitis B Treatment.

We investigated the incidence and predictors of non-adherence towards clinic visits in chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients on entecavir or tenofovir treatment. This was a retrospective study of CHB patients treated for at least 3 months in a tertiary referral hospital in The Netherlands. Lack of attendance in clinic visits was defined as a missed follow-up visit without notice. 338 patients (48% Caucasian, 37% Asian) were followed for a median of 3.5 years. During 1283 person-years, 183 scheduled follow-up v...

Emergency Department Visits by Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Patients Compared with Pediatric Cancer Patients in the United States.

Emergency department visits among patients with left ventricular assist devices.

Continuous-flow left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) are increasingly implanted to support patients with end-stage heart failure. These patients are at high risk for complications, many of which necessitate emergency care. While rehospitalization rates have been described, there is little data regarding emergency department (ED) visits. We hypothesize that ED visits are frequent and often require admission after LVAD implantation. We performed a retrospective review of patients in our health-care system ...

Home Therapy to Reduce Office Visits for Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease and Anemia.

Anemia is a common complication of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and a predictor of increased mortality. This project integrated erythropoietin-stimulating agent (ESA) with CKD care under one practice setting, co-managing anemia with CKD while reducing frequency of office visits in a rural setting. Patients self-administered their weekly dosage of erythropoietin with monthly follow-ups. As a result, office visits decreased by 56% for patients with CKD Stage 4 and by 54% for patients with CKD Stage 5.

Impact of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma on visits to different provider specialties among elderly Medicare beneficiaries: challenges for care coordination.

Newly diagnosed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) can pose significant challenges to care coordination. We utilized a social-ecological model to understand the impact of DLBCL diagnosis on visits to primary care providers (PCPs) and specialists, a key component of care coordination, over a 3-year period of cancer diagnosis and treatment. We used hurdle models and multivariable logistic regression with the Surveillance Epidemiology and End Result-Medicare linked dataset to analyze visits to PCPs and spec...

The epidemiology of Parkinson's disease in the Italian region Friuli Venezia Giulia: a population-based study with administrative data.

Parkinson's disease is known to pose a relevant burden to society in industrialized countries. However, not much research has been conducted on the epidemiology of this disease in Italy. Our aim was to estimate the incidence rate and prevalence of Parkinson's disease in the Italian Friuli Venezia Giulia region using administrative health-related databases. Five regional administrative databases (hospitalizations, exemptions from medical charges, drug prescriptions, nursing homes, and home visits) were indiv...

Health Care Service Use Among Elderly Seasonal Migrators.

Elderly seasonal migrators share time between homes in different states, presenting challenges for care coordination and patient attribution methods. Medicare has prioritized alternative payment models, putting health care providers at risk for quality and value of services delivered to their attributed patients, regardless of the location of care. Little research is available to guide providers and payers on the service use of seasonal migrators. The authors use claims data on fee-for-service (FFS) Medicar...

Syncope and Presyncope as a Presenting Symptom or Discharge Diagnosis in the Emergency Department: An Administrative Data Validation Study.

Emergency department (ED) visits for syncope are common. Validation of ED administrative diagnostic coding for syncope is required before these codes can be used for health services research. We performed a retrospective multicentre chart review using a regional ED database in British Columbia. We identified adults who visited 1 of 3 high-volume urban EDs between 2010 and 2015. Cohort 1 included 350 ED visits for patients with a presenting complaint (PC) of syncope/presyncope, a discharge diagnosis (DD) of ...

Reflecting the real value of health care resources in modelling and cost-effectiveness studies-The example of viral load informed differentiated care.

The WHO HIV Treatment Guidelines suggest routine viral-load monitoring can be used to differentiate antiretroviral therapy (ART) delivery and reduce the frequency of clinic visits for patients stable on ART. This recommendation was informed by economic analysis that showed the approach is very likely to be cost-effective, even in the most resource constrained of settings. The health benefits were shown to be modest but the costs of introducing and scaling up viral load monitoring can be offset by anticipate...
