Practice patterns, case mix, Medicare payment policy, and dialysis facility costs. (1/780)

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)

Mental health/medical care cost offsets: opportunities for managed care. (2/780)

Health services researchers have long observed that outpatient mental health treatment sometimes leads to a reduction in unnecessary or excessive general medical care expenditures. Such reductions, or cost offsets, have been found following mental health treatment of distressed elderly medical inpatients, some patients as they develop major medical illnesses, primary care outpatients with multiple unexplained somatic complaints, and nonelderly adults with alcoholism. In this paper we argue that managed care has an opportunity to capture these medical care cost savings by training utilization managers to make mental health services more accessible to patients whose excessive use of medical care is related to psychological factors. For financial reasons, such policies are most likely to develop within health care plans that integrate the financing and management of mental health and medical/surgical benefits.  (+info)

Feasibility of direct discharge from the coronary/intermediate care unit after acute myocardial infarction. (3/780)

OBJECTIVES: This investigation was designed to determine the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of direct discharge from the coronary/intermediate care unit (CICU) in 497 consecutive patients with an acute myocardial infarction (AMI). BACKGROUND: Although patients with an AMI are traditionally treated in the CICU followed by a period on the medical ward, the latter phase can likely be incorporated within the CICU. METHODS: All patients were considered for direct discharge from the CICU with appropriate patient education. The 6-week postdischarge course was evaluated using a structured questionnaire by a telephone interview. RESULTS: There were 497 patients (men = 353; women = 144; age 63.5 +/- 0.6 years) in the study, with 29 in-hospital deaths and a further 11 deaths occurring within 6 weeks of discharge. The mode length of CICU stay was 4.0 days (mean 5.1 +/- 0.2 days): 1 to 2 (12%), 3 (19%), 4 (21%), 5 (14%), 6 to 7 (19%) and > or = 7 (15%) days, respectively with 87.2% discharged home directly. Of the 425 patients surveyed, 119 (28.0%) indicated that they had made unscheduled return visits (URV) to a hospital or physician's office: 10.6% to an emergency room, 9.4% to a physician's office and 8.0% readmitted to a hospital. Of these URV, only 14.3% occurred within 48 h of discharge. Compared to historical controls, the present management strategy resulted in a cost savings of Cdn. $4,044.01 per patient. CONCLUSIONS: Direct discharge from CICU is a feasible and safe strategy for the majority of patients that results in considerable savings.  (+info)

Potential savings from generic prescribing and generic substitution in South Africa. (4/780)

Generic prescribing and generic substitution are mechanisms for reducing the cost of drugs. The purpose of this study was to assess the extent to which generic prescribing by private medical practitioners and generic substitution by private pharmacists is practised in South Africa and to estimate the potential savings from these two practices. Prescriptions from 10 pharmacists were collected on four randomly selected days. Computer printouts of all the prescriptions dispensed on these four days together with the original doctor's prescription were priced using a commercially available pharmacy dispensing computer package. A total of 1570 prescriptions with a total number of 4086 items were reviewed. Of the total prescriptions, 45.7% had at least one item for which there was a generic equivalent. Of the 961 drugs which had generic equivalents, 202 (21 %) were prescribed using the generic name of the drug. Only 0.3% of prescribers prohibited generic substitution. The cost of the prescription as dispensed was 1.4% (mean cost: R116.19 vs R117.84) below that of the original doctor's prescriptions, indicating the marginal benefit from the current low substitution rate of 13.9% by pharmacists. About 6.8% of the cost of the original doctor's prescriptions (mean cost: R117.84) could have been saved if total generic substitution (mean cost: R109.65) was practised. The cost of the prescriptions with only brand name items (mean cost: R120.49) would have been 9.9% higher than if generic drugs were used. Current restrictive prescribing and dispensing practices result in marginal cost savings from generic prescribing and generic substitution. Both these practices have a potential to reduce drug costs, if actively encouraged and practised to maximum capacity. It is noteworthy, however, that the potential savings from generic prescribing and substitution are at most 9.9% in the absence of any changes in types of drugs prescribed.  (+info)

Description of local adaptation of national guidelines and of active feedback for rationalising preoperative screening in patients at low risk from anaesthetics in a French university hospital. (5/780)

OBJECTIVE: To describe the effect of local adaptation of national guidelines combined with active feedback and organisational analysis on the ordering of preoperative investigations for patients at low risk from anaesthetics. DESIGN: Assessment of preoperative tests ordered over one month, before and after local adaptation of guidelines and feedback of results, combined with an organisational analysis. SETTING: Motivated anaesthetists in 15 surgical wards of Bordeaux University Hospital, Region Aquitain, France. SUBJECTS: 42 anaesthetists, 60 surgeons, and their teams. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Number and type of preoperative tests ordered in June 1993 and 1994, and the estimated savings. RESULTS: Of 536 patients at low risk from anaesthetics studied in 1993 before the intervention 80% had at least one preoperative test. Most (70%) tests were ordered by anaesthetists. Twice the number of preoperative tests were ordered than recommended by national guidelines. Organisational analysis indicated lack of organised consultations and communication within teams. Changes implemented included scheduling of anaesthetic consultations; regular formal multidisciplinary meetings for all staff; preoperative ordering decision charts. Of 516 low risk patients studied in 1994 after the intervention only 48% had one or more preoperative tests ordered (p < 0.05). Estimated mean (SD) saving for one year if changes were applied to all patients at low risk from anaesthesia in the hospital 3.04 (1.23) mFF. CONCLUSIONS: A sharp decrease in tests ordered in low risk patients was found. The likely cause was the package of changes that included local adaptation of national guidelines, feedback, and organisational change.  (+info)

Outcomes for control patients referred to a pediatric asthma outreach program: an example of the Hawthorne effect. (6/780)

A study was designed to determine whether identification of high risk for exacerbations of asthma based on pediatrician concern, emergency department visits, or hospital stays results in a decrease of resource utilization because of referral to an asthma outreach program even if the intervention does not take place. The findings for such a group were compared with those for a group who did undergo intervention with an asthma outreach program. Fifty-six patients 1 to 14 years of age were assigned to one of two groups. The control group (those who did not undergo intervention) had consistent but not statistically significant reductions in utilization of emergency visits, hospitalizations, and dollars spent (21%, 24%, and 32%, respectively). The group who underwent intervention with the asthma outreach program had large and statistically significant decreases in the same parameters (emergency visits, 60%, P = 0.001; hospital stays, 74%, P = 0.008; dollars spent, 72%, P = 0.004). However, the apparently insignificant effect of the reductions in utilization by the control group substantially altered interpretation of the outcomes of the study. Cost savings were reduced from $11.69 per dollar spent on intervention to $6.49 per dollar spent. In before-and-after studies such as those typically conducted during continuous quality improvement projects, which typically do not have control groups, investigators need to consider control group effects when they assess the results of intervention.  (+info)

A program to reduce discharge delays in a neonatal intensive care unit. (7/780)

Our hypothesis was that a program designed to identify the causes of discharge delays would reduce the length of stay in our neonatal intensive care unit. We reviewed every admission from January, 1994, to December, 1995. A discharge delay was defined as any delay not related to illness after the infant was cleared for release. Discharge delays were divided into the following categories: primary healthcare team, organizational, discharge planning, family, monitor related, and other. Potential discharge delays were identified daily according to established criteria. Actual discharge delays were reviewed monthly at a staff meeting attended by representatives of a multidisciplinary team. We identified 116 discharge delays, which accounted for 480 patient days. Eighty-three discharge delays accounted for 302 patient days in 1994, and 33 discharge delays for 178 patient days in 1995. Discharge delays ranged from 1 to 34 days, with an average of 4.1 days added per patient. Infants with discharge delays had a case mix index of 9.32. The average case mix index for the neonatal intensive care unit was 6.25 during 1994 and 5.18 during 1995, an average of 5.71 for the review period. Forty-four percent of infants who had discharge delays had private insurance, 55% had Medicaid, and 1% had self-payment arrangements. Eighty-eight of 116 discharge delays were caused by circumstances beyond the control of the primary care team. An additional 25 of 116 discharge delays were the result of our policy requiring 48 hours free of apnea-bradycardia alarms before discharge. Discharge delays for 1994 cost $226,298 ($749/day). For 1995, discharge delays cost $41,553 ($233/day) for a total cost of $262,431. Total savings in 1995 versus 1994 was $184,745 ($516/day). Despite the low birth weight and relatively severe illnesses of the infants, we believe that a focused team approach and monitoring for potential discharge delays can result in considerable reduction in hospital stay and cost.  (+info)

Cost recovery in Ghana: are there any changes in health care seeking behaviour? (8/780)

The study aimed to investigate the impact on health care seeking behaviour of the cost-sharing policies introduced in Ghana between 1985 and 1992. Qualitative research techniques were used to investigate the behaviour of patients after the introduction of these policies. Focus group discussions of cohorts of the population and in-depth interviews of health workers and selected opinion leaders were used to collect data from rural and urban health care facilities in three districts of Ghana. The study findings indicate that the cost recovery policies have led to an increase in self-medication and other behaviours aimed at cost-saving. At the same time, there is a perception of an improvement in the drug supply situation and general health delivery in government facilities. The study advocated enhanced training of drug peddlers and attendants at drug stores, especially in rural areas. User fee exemption criteria need to be worked out properly and implemented so that the very needy are not precluded from seeking health care at hospitals and clinics.  (+info)

In a study evaluating the financial impact of providing early physical therapy for intensive care patients, researchers at Johns Hopkins found that the up-front costs are outweighed by the financial savings generated by earlier discharges from the intensive care unit (ICU) and shorter hospital stays overall. "The evidence is growing that providing early physical and occupational therapy for intensive care patients-even when they are on life support-leads to better outcomes," says Dale M. Needham, MD, PhD, senior author of the study. "Patients are stronger and more able to care for themselves when they are discharged." Hospital administrators concerns about costs have been cited as barriers to implementing early rehab programs in the ICU. "However, our study shows that a relatively low investment up front can produce a significant overall reduction in the cost of hospital care for these patients," Needham says. "Such programs are an example of how we can save money and improve care at the same ...

Organizations are being challenged now, more than ever to balance limited technology resources and budgets with policies and user demands. However, savings is not always measured in dollars, but could include increased employee productivity, lower energy costs, and enhanced end user experience through improved service levels.. The City of Raleigh experienced these and other residual benefits firsthand as they worked to create a unified vision for technology. By leveraging a unified approach to voice, video and wireless solutions, they were able to revitalize downtown area businesses, the convention center, schools and low-income households. In doing so, they not only renewed interest in an emerging community, but recognized significant cost savings. The government network is better positioned to serve the needs of their ...
The study confirms previous findings that patients recall of their immune status for tetanus is unreliable6 ,7 and this would seem to support the practice of testing all patients.. Testing all patients would mean that treatment was individualised and appropriate and the UK guidelines which have been shown to be poorly adhered to,8 ,9 could be significantly simplified.. Predicting the duration of immunity demonstrated by any one persons positive test is not possible and thus how often a test should be repeated is not clear at this stage.. Universal testing appears to provide significant cost savings compared with vaccination based on recall, but these savings are unlikely to be quite so large in practice as they assume complete compliance with the national guidelines, which has been demonstrated not to be the case. We plan to introduce the test kits to our department and study the real-world results.. An interesting finding was the low number of HTIG vaccinations given even when the person ...
Frugal people often do things that others find to be a little bit weird or a little bit gross. For example, maybe you save all of your soup cans and use them to drink from instead of purchasing new cups. Some of your friends and family might raise an eyebrow about that, right? But just how far would you go to save money? Where do you draw the line?. Take a look at these 20 extreme ways that people save money to judge for yourself where that line is for you:. 1. Eat road kill. "Never waste anything" is a mantra for some frugal people. Taken to the extreme, this can lead to eating road kill. You accidentally hit an animal and dont want it to go to waste so you scrape it off of the asphalt and take it home for dinner.. 2. Drink your own urine. Theres an entire alternative medicine niche called urine therapy in which people drink their own urine out of the belief that it has numerous health benefits including boosting immunity. Its one way to save on the costs of zinc, echinacea, Vitamin C and ...

I read a new report its about save money:Many Americans are changing their health habits to save money, using herbal remedies and forgoing checkups with doctor
I was thinking about a couple of things that I do to save money, and thought that many of you probably have lots of similar things that you do as well. Just simple things that you do to save money. For instance: I water down all the juice I drink because it stretches it, makes it less sweet and increases the water I drink. I exfoliate using baking soda rather than buying expensive creams. (Get a washcloth, wet it and sprinkle a little on, its better than the stuff you buy.) I make my
Differin Gel 0.1% originally was approved in 1996 as a prescription product. The switch to OTC status was significant to patients in many ways, including potentially significant cost savings. Although a generic version of Differin was approved in July 2010, its cost is still relatively high. A 45g tube of brand-name Differin Gel 0.1% is approximately $600, while prescription-only generic adapalene 0.1% gel is around $160 per 45g tube. Some pharmacy benefit managers still choose to list these as nonpreferred items, resulting in high copays. The OTC Differin 0.1% gel 45g tube ranges from $25-$30. The availability of OTC Differin could save patients hundreds of dollars per year and offers convenience and cost savings from dermatologist visits ...
Penwith District Council have managed to secure over £600,000 funding (including European Objective One investment) for technical investigations in Mounts Bay to support work on the harbour developments at Newlyn and Penzance. The work will also encompass proposed sea defence work along the Penzance Promenade and explore the implications of MDL Developments Ltds proposed new breakwaters to a new channel which will help turn Penlee Quarry into a site for a 190 berth marina.. There are significant cost savings to be gained by acquiring the maritime data for all these developments at the same time, explains Nigel Horwell (Penzance Regeneration Manager). Much of the data that will be acquired will be common to each of the developments. By working in partnership and pooling existing information we may also be able to make even further cost savings..

Vaccination, which is the second most effective way (after clean water) to save lives and promote good health [36], saves around 3 million lives each year worldwide [37]; reduces suffering; has vastly reduced the incidence of various diseases; and results in substantial cost savings. In an analysis by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the US, every US$1 spent on immunization saves US$6 in direct medical costs and US$12 in indirect costs [38]. It has also been estimated that each birth cohort vaccinated with the seven main vaccines can save $10 billion in direct medical costs and $33 billion in indirect costs [39].. The benefit of introducing a widespread vaccination program can only be judged on the basis of an accurate estimation of country-specific disease burden. The study reported here adapted a previously described model for the UK [13], but used data from 12 Istanbul hospitals [16] and Turkish Ministry of Health statistics [17] on burden of disease, resource use and costs. ...

Buzs Thoughts for Introduction and Wrap-up. There are significant cost savings to be had by reducing cold-chain requirements in bio-medical research. The goal of this forum is to determine which vendors have what products and give them and the scientists who could use them a chance to communicate, to help shape future products and hasten the use of those products. My job as a liaison is to reduce interagency redundancy and leverage strengths in our research efforts, saving our agencies time and money, and reducing tensions in the process. My job is also to bridge interagency silos to reduce redundancy and enhance speed to deployment. To that end, CDC and USAMRIID are preparing a joint proposal to DITRA for funding for a 2-4 yr project (conducted under Booz Allen auspices) for evaluating COTS (commercial off the shelf) products stabilizing nucleic acids, proteins, blood markers and cytokines, live bacteria and viruses, and also for an array of assay bio-reagents like PCR master mixes.

GENEVA (Reuters) - The World Health Organization (WHO) has for the first time recommended limits on childrens daily consumption of sodium which it hoped would help in the global fight against diet-related diseases becoming chronic among all populations. In advice to its 194 member states on Thursday, the U.N. agency noted high sodium levels were a factor behind elevated blood pressure, which increases the risk of heart disease and stroke, the number one cause of death and disability worldwide.. Heart disease, stroke and other non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes, cancer and chronic respiratory disease kill more people globally each year than all other causes combined, the agency said.. "Diet-related NCDs are chronic, and take years and decades to manifest; thus, delaying the onset of these diseases could improve lives and result in substantial cost savings," it said.. "Thus, addressing, during childhood, the problem of elevated blood pressure and other risk factors for NCDs that ...

Kagamishi Tsuba ca. mid Muromachi. 7.7 cm H x 7.2 cm W x 0.5 cm T Bronze alloy cast with a flowering plant and bird / tortoise shell and bird design Hachi mokko gata Shakudo fukurin This guard is made of three metal layers held together with two pins through the seppa dai. This hon san mai style typically requires a fukurin to produce a finished edge. Multiplate construction is sometimes seen in early shakudo guards. In that case the use of a thick plain copper filling plate would require less expenditure of gold than a would solid shakudo tsuba. Many low quality three-plate tsuba were made in mid Edo times to imitate Mino and Goto styles. These guards have very thin outer plates done in repousse rather than carving. In this case, we have three equal thickness copper/copper alloy plates joined together. It isnt obvious that this would result in any significant cost savings. It may be that the outer plates were taken from actual bronze mirrors or other cast objects. The central copper plate may ...

Sequence Time Domain Reflectometry (STDR) have been demonstrated to be a powerful technique for detecting the length of cable or length of open circuit or short circuit cables. Using this method along with using smart meter on the main electrical panel board to monitor consumption if load at each circuit, enable user to monitor power consumption at each node (power outlet) only by operating a smart digital meter and an STDR circuitry on each circuit at the main electrical panel board. This paper introduces this method and examines it on dead-wire and energized wire with a load connected across it. Experimental results are demonstrated for both types. Test result show the potential application of this approach to provide consumption information and potential cost saving via feedback for users.
Discussion This study demonstrates that, as well as influencing anaesthetic management of patients, focused TTE performed in the pre-admission clinic has clear financial benefits. Although the exact number of eligible patients presenting to each clinic is unknown, the conservative estimate of two TTE examinations per day would lead to an annual saving of greater than $100,000, and potentially greater savings with performance of a higher number of focused TTE examinations. Whilst the results reflect savings at a single institution, they could be readily applied to many large tertiary hospitals. In addition to the financial benefits of implementing such a program to the pre-operative clinic, the low annual capital cost, minimal time impact and lack of patient morbidity make focused TTE a useful addition. Delays to surgery may also be avoided, leading to further cost savings [17]. There may also be reduced burden placed upon cardiology outpatient services, particularly comprehensive TTE services. ...

Figure 15: Sample curve of time value/vessel speed. How much is my time worth?. The estimation of how much the skippers time is worth can be taken as the valuation of the cost of his/her arriving later. An approach would be to ask, would I be willing to arrive an hour later if someone paid me $1 000?. In this case, the answer would probably be yes. But if the compensation was only 50 cents, it would probably be no. So the value of the extra hour lies somewhere between 50 cents and $1 000. The questioning process should be repeated, reducing the value from $1 000 downwards until the decision becomes uncertain and an upper limit of time value can be estimated (for example $25). Likewise, the questioning should be repeated, increasing the lower value from 50 cents until again the decision becomes uncertain, so that a lower limit is reached (again for example $15). The valuation of the skippers time lies between these two and can be estimated as the average (in this case $20). This is the ...
Downloadable! Empirical evidence suggests that fast-growing economies tend to have not only high saving rates but also low interest rates. This evidence is difficult to reconcile with standard explanations about the positive linkages between saving and growth. These explanations rely either on high saving to explain high growth or on high growth to explain high saving; but in either case, they must imply and depend on high interest rates to induce high saving rates. Hence, the real puzzle is why households would save excessively to finance firms investment when the interest rate on their savings is so low. This paper shows that if households face idiosyncratic wealth-income risk and are borrowing constrained, an otherwise-standard growth model can imply that fast-growing economies have not only high saving rates but also low interest rates. Precautionary saving under borrowing constraints can make an individuals marginal propensity to consume negatively dependent on her permanent income, so that high

6. Save money the right way. If youre looking to save money, then buy in bulk. Most farmers are more than happy to sell you a bushel of peppers or a half a dozen flats of strawberries at a discounted price. Its considered impolite, however, to ask for a discount on single items or small purchases. Keep in mind that farmers usually set fair prices from the outset; paying full price supports them and the local economy. Another way to save money is to shop just before closing time when farmers often discount their goods to sell before hitting the road ...

High content cellular assays can offer more physiologically relevant assay results compared to biochemical assays. Broader adoption of cellular assays has been hindered in part by costly reagents and limited availability of cells. This issue has been especially acute for assays requiring primary or stem cells. It is further exacerbated when multi-step staining procedures require large amounts of labeled antibody.. DropArray™ ensures that cells are retained throughout all assay procedures and wash steps. Each assay in a 384-well DropArray microplate uses only 100 - 2,000 cells per data point, compared to the 3,000 - 10,000 cells per data point needed for conventional microplates. For a typical siRNA screen using an immuno-assay readout, the reduced sample and reagent volumes of the DropArray platform provide at least a 75% cost-savings.. ...

PrRMA notes decreasing drug cost trends over recent years, and loss of 130,000 jobs in its industry globally over the last 2 years. Specific Initiatives:. 1) Support for public reporting of performance measures: This would increase the patient adherence to prescriptions so that more patients hit performance targets (such as blood pressure control, and HbAIC control in diabetes). Its a good idea, and can deliver many years of quality adjusted life to Americans. However, most of these drugs are cost-effective, not cost-saving, so increased adherence will raise medical costs. 2) Expanded use of pharmacists to monitor patients on multiple drugs to prevent complications. PhRMA cites studies showing cost savings in pharmacist-managed diabetes care. 3) Regulatory support for follow-on biologics. This is a big deal - right now, there is no method for the FDA to approve generic biologic medications. With treatments for multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis often costing $75,000 per year, more ...
TRS-Care encourages you to maintain health and wellness through routine "preventive" care. Preventive care means taking good care of yourself by participating in routine health check-ups and screenings for common ailments. Not only do these activities contribute to longevity and healthy living, you will realize significant financial savings in the long run. Going to the doctor regularly can help you catch potential health problems before they get too serious - and TRS-Care will pay 100% of in-network office visits and lab tests for preventive care.. Be sure your health care provider is aware that they must bill this benefit as "preventive care." For example, a blood pressure screening is covered at 100 percent but if the screening is for the purpose of monitoring an existing condition, or to get a prescription, it may be billed as "diagnostic" instead. For diagnostic procedures you would be responsible for paying out of pocket until you meet your deductible.. Your plan provides preventive care ...

Civilized nations across the globe utilize varied forms of common or nationalized healthcare insurance applications. Germany, the primary country to implement nationwide healthcare, did so in the 1880s, many years before America would see the intense development of any type of health insurance in any respect. Do you actually want to make this occur? If the answer is yes, then I recommend that you start doing it NOW! Our health system finally ends up costing an terrible lot less than the USAs does, though.

WASHINGTON, DC-A high-volume center accessing the coronary arteries via the radial artery safely discharged PCI patients home the same-day and significantly lowered the costs of the procedure when compared with an overnight stay, new research shows.. Presenting data at CRT 2017 in Washington, DC, William Rollefson, MD (Arkansas Heart Hospital, Little Rock) reported equivalent 30-day clinical outcomes among transradial PCI patients sent home the day of the procedure and patients who stayed overnight.. "When we looked at the cumulative costs in US dollars of transradial same-day discharge versus an overnight stay, the total cost in the same-day arm was $3,346," said Rollefson. "On average, the cost of the overnight stay was $4,682, which was an initial cost savings of $1,336, and this was slightly increased at 30-day follow-up.". Previous studies have shown patients can be safely discharged the same day after an uncomplicated PCI. For example, in a meta-analysis published in 2013, Olivier ...
Return on Investment for Needle and Syringe Programs: Investment in NSPs (2000-2009) has resulted in: • An estimated 32,050 HIV infections and 96,667 HCV infections averted; • Substantial healthcare cost savings to government related to HCV and HIV; • Substantial gains in Disability Adjusted Life years.
Peripheral inserted central catheters (PICCs) have increasingly become the mainstay of patients requiring prolonged treatment with antibiotics, transfusions, oncologic IV therapy and total parental nutrition. They may also be used in delivering a number of other medications to patients. In recent years, bed occupancy rates have become hugely pressurized in many hospitals and any potential solutions to free up beds is welcome. Recent introductions of doctor or nurse led intravenous (IV) outpatient based treatment teams has been having a direct effect on early discharge of patients and in some cases avoiding admission completely. The ability to deliver outpatient intravenous treatment is facilitated by the placement of PICCs allowing safe and targeted treatment of patients over a prolonged period of time. We carried out a retrospective study of 2,404 patients referred for PICCs from 2009 to 2015 in a university teaching hospital. There was an exponential increase in the number of PICCs requested ...
The Pennsylvania Department of Health relies on Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) established peer review process to evaluate its return on investment resulting from health research grants awarded through the Commonwealth Universal Research Enhancement (CURE) Program. CURE, which was established as part of the Pennsylvania Master Tobacco Settlement Act, uses tobacco monies to fund a variety of health research projects.. During 2007, ORAU convened five panels of experts in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, Pa., to conduct interim objective reviews of research into neurodegenerative diseases and tobacco use and cessation. Seventeen independent reviewers recruited by ORAU evaluated information provided by the principal investigators, including on-site presentations, to assess the research progress to date and the value of the investment as well as to identify any needed improvements.. ORAU also managed the research review for 172 completed research grants to appraise the success toward achieving ...
These energy efficiency savings are more than the entire current energy use of the state of California, and are larger than the annual energy use of 49 of the 50 states. These savings are more than triple those of 2005 energy legislation and about double those of 2007 energy legislation, and in turn will avoid about 661 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions in 2020, the equivalent of taking 110 million cars off the road for a year. The analysis examines the energy efficiency provisions in the "discussion draft" of the American Clean Energy and Security Act (ACESA), authored by Representatives Henry Waxman (D-CA) and Ed Markey (D-MA). This bill includes a variety of energy efficiency and renewable energy provisions as well as a cap-and-trade program to reduce emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases.. "These energy efficiency savings are very substantial and will go a long way towards paying the cost of the cap-and-trade program in the bill," noted Steven Nadel, ACEEEs Executive ...
Effective communication plays a pivotal role in modern radiological practice, with the generation of accurate reports being integral to optimal patient care [1].. The radiology report has been shown to be the most important determinant of a radiologists stature amongst clinical colleagues [2].. Speech recognition (SR) technology, the process whereby the spoken word is converted to digital text, has been used in radiology reporting since 1981 [3]. The earliest systems did not enhance efficiency, requiring users to pause between individual words. However, with on-going software development, the first continuous speech programmes evolved in 1994 and by 1999, state of the art systems were claiming up to 99% accuracy [4], reduced report turnaround times [5], and significant cost savings [6-9]. It appeared that SR was destined to dominate radiology reporting.. Despite initial promise, the limited available data suggest that SR reports contain more errors than those generated by traditional dictation ...
In 2005, the province of Ontario began a process that would eventually lead to the phasing out of its coal-fired power plants, the largest of which were the Lambton and Nanticoke facilities in southern Ontario. The rationale for shuttering these plants was a 2005 cost-benefit analysis that assumed that about $3 billion in annual savings to the health care system would come from the reduction of smog-related air contaminants. However, that analysis, and another one done for the province the same year on the effects of cross-border air pollution, reported that the phase-out of coal would have only very modest effects on Ontario air quality, which is consistent with emissions inventory data showing that electric power generation was a minor contributor to particulate and ozone pollution at the time. The cost savings estimate came from assuming very large health effects associated with very small changes in air pollution.. In the aftermath of the coal phase-out, and the extremely costly changes to ...
Cost Savings Through Prevention - One study found a linear relationship exists between hand hygiene compliance and HAI rates. For each 1% increase in hand hygiene compliance, there is a 0.6% decline in the prevalence rate of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA). Increasing hand hygiene compliance can save hospitals big money by avoiding HAI related costs and freeing up beds. As an example, a hospital that improves its compliance rate from 40% to 80% could experience a 24% decline in infections (40% x 0.6). This translates to 12 fewer infections for a hospital with a history of 50 HAIs per year (24% x 50 HAIs). Assuming an average cost of $43,000 per infection, the hospital would save $516,000 per year in HAI related costs.. Hospitals with better hand hygiene compliance rates benefit from stronger reputations, fewer infections and associated costs, shorter patient length of stay, easier accreditation processes and higher scores on government and municipal quality measures. More ...
