Little is known about the economic impact of takotsubo syndrome (TS) for patients and the health system after initial discharge from hospital. Therefore, the aim of this study was to describe the healthcare resource use and calculate direct healthcare costs for TS, from hospitalisation to 6 months after discharge, and explore the distribution of costs between TS and other diagnoses among patients with TS.
Oropharyngeal dysphagia (OD) is a major disorder following stroke. OD can produce alterations in both the efficacy and safety of deglutition and may result in malnutrition, dehydration, frailty, respiratory infections and pneumonia. These complications can be avoided by early detection and treatment of OD in poststroke patients, and hospital stays, medication and mortality rates can be reduced. In addition to acute in-hospital costs from OD complications, there are other costs related to poststroke OD such ...
In addition to the considerable patient and societal burdens, the financial burdens of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) are substantial. Understanding both all-cause and AS-specific direct costs in patients with AS is important if we are to understand the financial impact on patients with AS and payers in the United States. This study assessed both all-cause and AS-specific healthcare utilization and direct costs in US patients with AS using administrative claims data.
Lumbar discectomy is a largely successful surgical procedure; however, reherniation rates in patients with large annular defects are as high as 27%. The expense associated with a revision surgery places significant burden on the healthcare system.
Intensive care is resource intensive, with costs representing a substantial quantity of total hospitalization costs. Strained ICU capacity compromises care quality and adversely impacts outcomes; however, the association between strain and healthcare costs has not been explored.
Healthcare workers account for 10% of the EU's total workforce, with a significant proportion of those employed in hospitals. Musculoskeletal injuries are the predominant group of injuries in healthcare professionals due to the physical demands of their work, such as the mobilization and positioning of the dependent patients. The management of this type of problem should take into account direct and indirect costs, such as periods of incapacity for work due to illness, hiring and training of new employees d...
Long-acting injectable (LAI) antipsychotic use may reduce healthcare resource utilization compared with oral antipsychotic use by improving adherence and reducing dosing frequency. Our goal was to examine treatment patterns, healthcare utilization, and costs among recently diagnosed schizophrenia patients receiving oral versus LAI antipsychotics.
Although use of the Medicare Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) is increasing nationally, it remains unclear whether it can help contain healthcare costs and improve quality. In the context of 2 primary care physician-led accountable care organizations (ACOs), we tested the hypothesis that AWVs can improve healthcare costs and clinical quality.
High rates of reoperation following breast-conserving surgery (BCS) for positive margins are associated with costs to healthcare providers. The aim was to assess the quality of evidence on reported re-excision costs and compare the direct patient-level costs between patients undergoing successful BCS versus reoperations after BCS.
Containing costs is a major challenge in health care. Cost and quality are often seen as trade-offs, but high quality and low costs can go hand-in-hand as waste exists in unnecessary and unfounded care. In the Netherlands, two healthcare insurers and a hospital collaborate to improve quality of care and decrease healthcare costs. Their aim is to reduce unnecessary care by shifting the business model and culture from a focus on volume to a focus on quality. Key drivers to support this are taking time for int...
The aim was to compare adherence to antipsychotics (APs), healthcare resource utilization (HRU), and costs before and after once-every-3-months paliperidone palmitate (PP3M) initiation in patients with schizophrenia.
Background Heart failure (HF) is a common, serious disease in the United States and Europe. Patients with HF often require treatment for fluid overload, resulting in costly inpatient visits; however, limited evidence exists on the costs of alternative treatments. This study performed a cost-analysis of ultrafiltration (UF) versus diuretic therapy (DIUR-T) for patients with HF from the hospital perspective. Methods The model used clinical data from the literature and hospital data from the Healthcare Cost an...
To quantify costs to patients of accessing HIV care prior to ART initiation.
To assess the burden of hypoglycemia in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) in Spain, including epidemiological data and information relating to healthcare resource utilization (HRU) and costs, and patients' quality of life (QoL).
Patients with end-stage liver disease (ESLD) have progressively complex medical needs. However, little is known about their end of life health care utilization or associated costs. We performed a population-based study to evaluate the end of life direct utilization and costs for patients with ESLD among health care sectors in the province of Ontario.
The purpose of this study is to estimate healthcare utilization and healthcare costs due to secondhand smoke exposure at home for children in the U.S.
The Atrial fibrillation Better Care (ABC) pathway for the integrated approach to the management of patients with atrial fibrillation has been proposed to streamline patient management in an integrated, holistic manner, as follows: 'A' Avoid stroke with Anticoagulation; 'B' Better symptom management, with rate or rhythm control; 'C' Cardiovascular risk and comorbidity management, including lifestyle factors. ABC pathway compliance has been associated with a reduced rate of cardiovascular events compared to n...
In recent years we indeed have witnessed an increasing demand on healthcare services coupled with spiraling healthcare costs forcing us towards identifying factors and interventions leading to greater healthcare efficiency.
Depression in patients with cancer has been associated with increased annual health care use and costs relative to nondepressed patients. Little is known of the potential cost savings associated with receipt of mental health treatment. This study evaluated the association between number of mental health visits and annual health care costs in patients with cancer and comorbid major depression.
Imaging (X-ray, CT and MRI) provides no health benefits for low back pain (LBP) patients and is not recommended in clinical practice guidelines. Whether imaging leads to increased costs, healthcare utilization or absence from work is unclear. Therefore, this study systematically reviews if imaging in patients with LBP leads to an increase in these outcomes.
acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is associated with significant risk for long-term morbidity and healthcare expenditure. We investigated healthcare utilization and direct costs throughout 10-years following AMI.
The objective of this study was to determine healthcare costs attributable to laboratory-confirmed Lyme disease (LD) from the healthcare payer perspective in Ontario, Canada. A cost-of-illness study was conducted for incident LD subjects from 1 January 2006 through 31 December 2013 ascertained from provincial laboratory and reportable disease databases, linked to health administrative data. All LD subjects included were laboratory-confirmed, according to provincial case definitions. Incident LD subjects wer...
Decreased thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT) enzyme activity increases the risk of hematologic adverse drug reactions (ADR) in patients treated with thiopurines. Clinical studies have shown that in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), pharmacogenetic TPMT-guided thiopurine treatment reduces this risk of ADR. The aim of this study was to investigate, whether this intervention impacts on healthcare costs and/or quality of life.
Healthcare systems are facing persistent challenges, such as dealing with an ageing population, related increases in chronic diseases and healthcare costs facilitated by technological progress. The authors argue that the boundaries of optimisation are being reached and a more fundamental change or transition is necessary. The purpose of this paper is to explore the contours of this transition in the Netherlands. The authors do this from the perspective of healthcare organisations that have participated in t...
