Practice patterns, case mix, Medicare payment policy, and dialysis facility costs. (1/1505)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of case mix, practice patterns, features of the payment system, and facility characteristics on the cost of dialysis. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: The nationally representative sample of dialysis units in the 1991 U.S. Renal Data System's Case Mix Adequacy (CMA) Study. The CMA data were merged with data from Medicare Cost Reports, HCFA facility surveys, and HCFA's end-stage renal disease patient registry. STUDY DESIGN: We estimated a statistical cost function to examine the determinants of costs at the dialysis unit level. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: The relationship between case mix and costs was generally weak. However, dialysis practices (type of dialysis membrane, membrane reuse policy, and treatment duration) did have a significant effect on costs. Further, facilities whose payment was constrained by HCFA's ceiling on the adjustment for area wage rates incurred higher costs than unconstrained facilities. The costs of hospital-based units were considerably higher than those of freestanding units. Among chain units, only members of one of the largest national chains exhibited significant cost savings relative to independent facilities. CONCLUSIONS: Little evidence showed that adjusting dialysis payment to account for differences in case mix across facilities would be necessary to ensure access to care for high-cost patients or to reimburse facilities equitably for their costs. However, current efforts to increase dose of dialysis may require higher payments. Longer treatments appear to be the most economical method of increasing the dose of dialysis. Switching to more expensive types of dialysis membranes was a more costly means of increasing dose and hence must be justified by benefits beyond those of higher dose. Reusing membranes saved money, but the savings were insufficient to offset the costs associated with using more expensive membranes. Most, but not all, of the higher costs observed in hospital-based units appear to reflect overhead cost allocation rather than a difference in real resources devoted to treatment. The economies experienced by the largest chains may provide an explanation for their recent growth in market share. The heterogeneity of results by chain size implies that characterizing units using a simple chain status indicator variable is inadequate. Cost differences by facility type and the effects of the ongoing growth of large chains are worthy of continued monitoring to inform both payment policy and antitrust enforcement.  (+info)

Where do people go for treatment of sexually transmitted diseases? (2/1505)

CONTEXT: Major public health resources are devoted to the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) through public STD clinics. However, little is known about where people actually receive treatment for STDs. METHODS: As part of the National Health and Social Life Survey, household interviews were performed from February to September 1992 with 3,432 persons aged 18-59. Weighted population estimates and multinomial response methods were used to describe the prevalence of self-reported STDs and patterns of treatment utilization by persons who ever had a bacterial or viral STD. RESULTS: An estimated two million STDs were self-reported in the previous year, and 22 million 18-59-year-olds self-reported lifetime STDs. Bacterial STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia, nongonococcal urethritis, pelvic inflammatory disease and syphilis) were more common than viral STDs (genital herpes, genital warts, hepatitis and HIV). Genital warts were the most commonly reported STD in the past year, while gonorrhea was the most common ever-reported STD. Almost half of all respondents who had ever had an STD had gone to a private practice for treatment (49%); in comparison, only 5% of respondents had sought treatment at an STD clinic. Respondents with a bacterial STD were seven times more likely to report going to an STD clinic than were respondents with a viral STD--except for chlamydia, which was more likely to be treated at family planning clinics. Men were significantly more likely than women to go to an STD clinic. Young, poor or black respondents were all more likely to use a family planning clinic for STD treatment than older, relatively wealthy or white respondents. Age, sexual history and geographic location did not predict particular types of treatment-seeking. CONCLUSIONS: The health care utilization patterns for STD treatment in the United States are complex. Specific disease diagnosis, gender, race and income status all affect where people will seek treatment. These factors need to be taken into account when STD prevention strategies are being developed.  (+info)

Evaluation of a smoking cessation intervention for pregnant women in an urban prenatal clinic. (3/1505)

A smoking cessation and relapse prevention intervention was tested in an urban, prenatal clinic serving predominantly low-income, African-American women. At their first prenatal visit, 391 smokers were randomly assigned to an experimental (E) group to receive usual clinic information plus a prenatal and postpartum intervention or to a control (C) group to receive only usual clinic information. The intervention consisted of individual skills instruction and counseling by a peer health counselor on the use of a self-help cessation guide and routine clinic reinforcement. Among the E group (n = 193), 6.2% were cotinine-confirmed quitters at third trimester and among the C group (n = 198) the quit rate was 5.6%. Quitters were light smokers at entry into prenatal care. Many had tried to quit smoking at least once prior to pregnancy.  (+info)

Essential drugs for ration kits in developing countries. (4/1505)

Since the early 1980s drug ration kits have been used to improve the supply of essential drugs to rural health facilities in developing countries. This paper evaluates some of the experiences with kit systems in Angola, Bhutan, Democratic Yemen, Guinea-Conakry, Kenya, Mozambique, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia in relation to the selection of drugs for the kits and their quantities and cost. Data were collected through a review of published papers, annual reports and programme evaluations, by questionnaires among field staff and interviews with key experts. In comparing the 10 programmes, 21 drugs can be identified that are used in at least two-thirds of all kits. This list may be useful for evaluation and planning purposes. Six drugs (ORS, chloroquine and 4 antibiotics) usually account for over 60% of the cost of the kit. Careful monitoring of the price and quantities of these 6 drugs can therefore be very cost-effective. In the absence of reliable data on morbidity and drug needs in the initial phases of a kit system, the median drug quantities in kits from these 10 countries may serve as a starting point. Accumulating surpluses are sometimes perceived as a serious disadvantage of kit systems, ORS, benzylbenzoate solution and iron tablets are the three drugs that have most frequently accumulated. These drugs are relatively cheap and usually have a long shelf-life; in most programmes they have been successfully redistributed to other health facilities while the kit content was being adapted. The overall financial loss due to accumulation of surpluses is therefore limited. Most programmes have reached a stable kit content within two years.  (+info)

The natural history of multiple sclerosis: a geographically based study. 5. The clinical features and natural history of primary progressive multiple sclerosis. (5/1505)

We report a natural history study of 216 patients with primary progressive (PP)- multiple sclerosis defined by at least 1 year of exacerbation-free progression at onset. This represents 19.8% of a largely population-based patient cohort having a mean longitudinal follow-up of 23 years. This subgroup of PP-multiple sclerosis patients had a mean age of onset of 38.5 years, with females predominating by a ratio of 1.3:1.0. The rate of deterioration from disease onset was substantially more rapid than for relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, with a median time to disability status score (DSS) 6 and DSS 8 of 8 and 18 years, respectively. Forty-nine percent of patients were followed through to death. Examination of the early disease course revealed two groups with adverse prognostic profiles. Firstly, a shorter time to reach DSS 3 from onset of PP-multiple sclerosis significantly adversely influenced time to DSS 8. Second, involvement of three or more neurological systems at onset resulted in a median time to DSS 10 of 13.5 years in contrast to PP-multiple sclerosis patients with one system involved at onset where median time to death from multiple sclerosis was 33.2 years. However, age, gender and type of neurological system involved at onset appeared to have little influence on prognosis. Life expectancy, cause of mortality and familial history profile were similar in PP-multiple sclerosis and non-PP-multiple sclerosis (all other multiple sclerosis patients from the total population). From clinical onset, rate of progression was faster in the PP-multiple sclerosis group than in the secondary progressive (SP)-multiple sclerosis group. When the rates of progression from onset of the progressive phase to DSS 6, 8 and 10 were compared, SP-multiple sclerosis had a more rapid progressive phase. A substantial minority (28%) of the PP-multiple sclerosis cohort had a distinct relapse even decades after onset of progressive deterioration. These studies establish natural history outcomes for the subgroup of multiple sclerosis patients with primary progressive disease.  (+info)

Sophisticated hospital information system/radiology information system/picture archiving and communications system (PACS) integration in a large-scale traumatology PACS. (6/1505)

Picture archiving and communications system (PACS) in the context of an outpatient trauma care center asks for a high level of interaction between information systems to guarantee rapid image acquisition and distribution to the surgeon. During installation of the Innsbruck PACS, special aspects of traumatology had to be realized, such as imaging of unconscious patients without identification, and transferred to the electronic environment. Even with up-to-date PACS hardware and software, special solutions had to be developed in-house to tailor the PACS/hospital information system (HIS)/radiology information system (RIS) interface to the needs of radiologic and clinical users. An ongoing workflow evaluation is needed to realize the needs of radiologists and clinicians. These needs have to be realized within a commercially available PACS, whereby full integration of information systems may sometimes only be achieved by special in-house solutions.  (+info)

Improving pneumococcal vaccine rates. Nurse protocols versus clinical reminders. (7/1505)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the effectiveness of three interventions designed to improve the pneumococcal vaccination rate. DESIGN: A prospective controlled trial. SETTING: Department of Veterans Affairs ambulatory care clinic. PATIENTS/PARTICIPANTS: There were 3, 502 outpatients with scheduled visits divided into three clinic teams (A, B, or C). INTERVENTIONS: During a 12-week period, each clinic team received one intervention: (A) nurse standing orders with comparative feedback as well as patient and clinician reminders; (B) nurse standing orders with compliance reminders as well as patient and clinician reminders; and (C) patient and clinician reminders alone. Team A nurses (comparative feedback group) received information on their vaccine rates relative to those of team B nurses. Team B nurses (compliance reminders group) received reminders to vaccinate but no information on vaccine rates. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Team A nurses assessed more patients than team B nurses (39% vs 34%, p =.009). However, vaccination rates per total patient population were similar (22% vs 25%, p =.09). The vaccination rates for both team A and team B were significantly higher than the 5% vaccination rate for team C (p <.001). CONCLUSIONS: Nurse-initiated vaccine protocols raised vaccination rates substantially more than a physician and patient reminder system. The nurse-initiated protocol with comparative feedback modestly improved the assessment rate compared with the protocol with compliance reminders, but overall vaccination rates were similar.  (+info)

Regional dissemination of vancomycin-resistant enterococci resulting from interfacility transfer of colonized patients. (8/1505)

During early 1997, the Siouxland District Health Department (SDHD; Sioux City, IA) reported an increased incidence of vancomycin-resistant enterococcal (VRE) isolates at area health care facilities. To determine the prevalence and risk factors for colonization with VRE strains at 32 health care facilities in the SDHD region, a prevalence survey and case-control study were performed. Of 2266 patients and residents, 1934 (85%) participated, and 40 (2.1%) were positive for (gastrointestinal) VRE colonization. The prevalence of VRE isolates was significantly higher in acute care facilities (ACFs) than in long-term care facilities (LTCFs) (10/152 [6.6%] vs. 30/1782 [1.7%]; odds ratio [OR], 4.1; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.8-9.0). LTCF case patients were significantly more likely than controls to have been inpatients at any ACF (19/30 vs. 12/66; OR, 8.0; 95% CI, 2.7-23.8). Of 40 VRE isolates, 34 (85%) were a related strain. The predominant strain was present in all 12 LTCFs that had at least 1 case patient in each facility. Soon after the introduction of VRE isolates into this region, dissemination to multiple LTCFs resulted from resident transfer from ACFs to LTCFs.  (+info)

Reducing spatial access disparities to healthcare services is a growing priority for healthcare planners especially among developed countries with aging populations. There is thus a pressing need to determine which populations do not enjoy access to healthcare, yet efforts to quantify such disparities in spatial accessibility have been hampered by a lack of satisfactory measurements and methods. This study compares an optimised and the conventional version of the two-step floating catchment area (2SFCA) method to assess spatial accessibility to medical clinics in Montreal. We first computed catchments around existing medical clinics of Montreal Island based on the shortest network distance. Population nested in dissemination areas were used to determine potential users of a given medical clinic. To optimize the method, medical clinics (supply) were weighted by the number of physicians working in each clinic, while the previous years medical clinic users were computed by ten years age group was used as

Because of long waiting times at the Free Clinic, lunch is served to waiting patients, January 2012 (Photo: RTM). The Road to Mandalay charity opened a Free Medical Clinic in Bagan on 6th August 2011. Details about the early months can be found in earlier posts: Part 1 and Part 2. January 2012 The Clinic was open on 13 days during January, treating a total of 1,605 patients during the month. The Clinic is normally opened on Friday, Saturday and Sunday each week, with both a morning and an afternoon clinic each day. During January, the Ananda Temple Festival is held. This lasts for 7 to 10 days and is the largest in Bagan. Schools are normally closed and thousands of worshippers accompanied by their children come from remote villages, often travelling by ox cart and staying in temporary tents. This meant that the Clinic was seeing patients from different villages during the Festival. Because of the long waiting times to see a doctor, the Clinic serves lunch to patients, where possible. ...

You could go to an emergency room, but how long will you need to wait to be seen by an emergency care physician? You also do not want to worry about all the expenses that come when going to an ER. This makes a medical clinic that offers walk-in services an ideal solution, as you can be seen quickly and do not have to worry about a large medical bill. ...

A health Clinic is a one-day event focused on mobilizing health professionals to provide free medical and dental care through local faith communities.. Health Clinics can range from very small to very large. A health clinic can be one church with one doctor and one nurse. It can be a community resource fair with all of the resources in the community invited. It can be multiple churches coming together with dozens of doctors, dentists, nurses and hundred of volunteers to serve their community. The size of your clinic is up to you and the capacity of your congregation. Some churches decide they can meet the health needs of their community with one clinic a year and others decide that they want one each quarter, or even monthly.. This clinic model is designed to mobilize faith communities to provide pro bono care to the entire community.

Moreover, about one-third of large companies offer health clinics at or near the office. Often, employers offer discounts or waive co-payments for care at worksite clinics, Weber notes. Worksite clinics may also offer prescriptions at significantly reduced rates.. Additionally, there are 1,200 community clinics in the United States that offer a range of primary care, dental, mental health and pharmacy services to mostly low-income residents. Fees can range from $35 to $300, depending on the type of visit and an individuals income, according to Steven Abramson, marketing manager for the not-for-profit Community of Health Alliance of Pasadena. At the end of the day these clinics are a cheaper option than paying for a doctor, Abramson says (Zamosky, Times, 6/14). ...

Walk-in centres in the United Kingdom are similar to walk-in clinics in the United States, but are provided by the National Health Service, not on a commercial basis. They are not often located in retail facilities and are sometimes on hospital sites where they take patients who do not need the facilities of the Accident and Emergency Department. They are intended to divert patients from the A&E departments, which are under great pressure,[10] but there is a lack of public information about what services are provided and when. It has been pointed out that people need guidance to overcome an historic reliance on accident and emergency. Different words - walk-in centres, minor injury units and urgent care centres - may be used for similar facilities. In Blackpool the Walk-in centre and the Same Day Health Centre were both renamed Urgent Treatment Centres in August 2018. This was said to be a clear and comprehensive offer to patients. These urgent treatment centres were open for at least 12 hours a ...

We observed a significant improvement in glycemic control as a decrease in mean HbA1c among participants who attended ≥2 appointments at FQHCs. By contrast, participants who did not use the FQHC as their primary provider did not have a significant improvement in glycemic control, even though they had a mean of 1.9 free clinic visits (SD, 0.98 visits) at the 9-month follow up. Although a few studies have shown that underserved patients can achieve control of chronic conditions such as diabetes under the care of free clinics, this seems to be possible when continuity of care is achieved, since their participants visited the free clinics on average ,5 times in a 12-month period.14,15 Hence we attribute the improved glycemic control found in this study in part to physician-patient relationships during continuous care.. We surmise that improved adherence to medication regimens is also of particular importance. As shown in Table 3, before the intervention, participants reported not taking their ...

Wait time, defined as time spent in the waiting and exam rooms waiting to see a provider, is a key quality metric in a number of national patient experience surveys. However, the literature on wait time does not show a consistent correlation between long waits and worse overall patient care experiences. Herein, we examine contextual factors that can shape the manner in which patients may respond to different wait times. We also identify actions providers and clinics can take to promote positive wait experiences and mitigate negative ones. We conducted over 130 h of semi-structured interviews with patients new to two HIV primary care clinics in Houston, Texas. We interviewed patients before the first provider visit, again within two weeks of the first visit, and again at 6-12 months. We analyzed the interviews using directed and conventional content analysis. Our study showed that patients

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can produce long-term health problems. They are often linked to HIV, which can also be sexually transmitted, because both occur in the same populations and because STIs and HIV interact biologically. Having an STI other than HIV can increase the risk of HIV acquisition and transmission as well as negatively impact HIV progression. The population of people who go to clinics specializing in STIs are particularly at risk of engaging in risky sexual behaviors and having poor health outcomes-like infection with an STI. This study will test the effectiveness of using an educational DVD to reduce incidence of risky sexual behaviors and STI acquisition, including risk of HIV, and to improve overall health.. Participation in this study will involve two phases. In Phase 1, participants will complete both computerized and paper surveys and watch an educational DVD. The educational DVD may include information on diet, physical activity, sleep, smoking, STIs, and ...

We compare the performance of general medical clinics (GMCs) and specialist diabetes clinics (SDCs) at different types of hospitals, for quality of diabetes care. Preliminary investigation suggested that SDCs outperform GMCs in achieving various processes of care (HbA1c exam, foot exam, and All FACE), clinical target (blood pressure target), and combination of process of care and clinical target (the Num7Q). However, we found that hospital type modified the relative efficacy of specialist clinics and only when a subsequent subgroup analysis by hospital type (regional, provincial, and community) was performed did the true nature of difference between GMCs and SDCs become apparent. For process of care examination, we found that patients who attended SDCs were had a substantially higher chance of achieving of eye and foot exams, regardless of hospital type. However, beyond this, the magnitude, and even direction, of differences between SDCs and GMCs varied with hospital type. Larger hospital ...

Background/significance: Effective team functioning plays an integral role in patient experience and resultant scores. Several initiatives across Aurora Health Care address quality, patient satisfaction and communication but none have explicitly addressed the competencies required to be effective team members. Purpose: Determine if implementation of TeamSTEPPS (TS), an evidence-based teamwork system, curriculum training to all caregivers will result in improved patient experience metrics and caregiver satisfaction; and if the 55-item TS assessment can be shortened without significant loss of content. Methods: The TS team assessment, a Likert scale questionnaire, was administered to all caretakers prior to training at two Family Medicine residency ambulatory clinics. The TS curriculum was customized for initial caregiver training based on the pre-assessment results and needs of the pilot sites, and delivered following a
