A status with BODY WEIGHT that is above certain standard of acceptable or desirable weight. In the scale of BODY MASS INDEX, overweight is defined as having a BMI of 25.0-29.9 kg/m2. Overweight may or may not be due to increases in body fat (ADIPOSE TISSUE), hence overweight does not equal "over fat".
An indicator of body density as determined by the relationship of BODY WEIGHT to BODY HEIGHT. BMI=weight (kg)/height squared (m2). BMI correlates with body fat (ADIPOSE TISSUE). Their relationship varies with age and gender. For adults, BMI falls into these categories: below 18.5 (underweight); 18.5-24.9 (normal); 25.0-29.9 (overweight); 30.0 and above (obese). (National Center for Health Statistics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
A status with BODY WEIGHT that is grossly above the acceptable or desirable weight, usually due to accumulation of excess FATS in the body. The standards may vary with age, sex, genetic or cultural background. In the BODY MASS INDEX, a BMI greater than 30.0 kg/m2 is considered obese, and a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2 is considered morbidly obese (MORBID OBESITY).

The cost of a general practitioner in the national health service. (1/132)

This paper estimates the cost to the National Health Service of decisions made by a trainee general practitioner during two consecutive weeks. By extrapolation of the cost of these actions (issuing prescriptions, issuing National Insurance certificates, requesting investigations, and initiating hospital referrals), the annual cost of a general practitioner in the National Health Service is at least pound43,000.  (+info)

Follow-up of breast cancer in primary care vs specialist care: results of an economic evaluation. (2/132)

A randomized controlled trial (RCT) comparing primary-care-centred follow-up of breast cancer patients with the current standard practice of specialist-centred follow-up showed no increase in delay in diagnosing recurrence, and no increase in anxiety or deterioration in health-related quality of life. An economic evaluation of the two schemes of follow-up was conducted concurrent with the RCT Because the RCT found no difference in the primary clinical outcomes, a cost minimization analysis was conducted. Process measures of the quality of care such as frequency and length of visits were superior in primary care. Costs to patients and to the health service were lower in primary care. There was no difference in total costs of diagnostic tests, with particular tests being performed more frequently in primary care than in specialist care. Data are provided on the average frequency and length of visits, and frequency of diagnostic testing for breast cancer patients during the follow-up period.  (+info)

Diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for nonmetastatic breast cancer in Canada, and their associated costs. (3/132)

In an era of fiscal restraint, it is important to evaluate the resources required to diagnose and treat serious illnesses. As breast cancer is the major malignancy affecting Canadian women, Statistics Canada has analysed the resources required to manage this disease in Canada, and the associated costs. Here we report the cost of initial diagnosis and treatment of nonmetastatic breast cancer, including adjuvant therapies. Treatment algorithms for Stages I, II, and III of the disease were derived by age group (< 50 or > or = 50 years old), principally from Canadian cancer registry data, supplemented, where necessary, by the results of surveys of Canadian oncologists. Data were obtained on breast cancer incidence by age, diagnostic work-up, stage at diagnosis, initial treatment, follow-up practice, duration of hospitalization and direct care costs. The direct health care costs associated with 'standard' diagnostic and therapeutic approaches were calculated for a cohort of 17,700 Canadian women diagnosed in 1995. Early stage (Stages I and II) breast cancer represented 87% of all incident cases, with 77% of cases occurring in women > or = 50 years. Variations were noted in the rate of partial vs total mastectomy, according to stage and age group. Direct costs for diagnosis and initial treatment ranged from $8014 for Stage II women > or = 50 years old, to $10,897 for Stage III women < 50 years old. Except for Stage III women < 50 years old, the largest expenditure was for hospitalization for surgery, followed by radiotherapy costs. Chemotherapy was the largest cost component for Stage III women < 50 years old. This report describes the cost of diagnosis and initial treatment of nonmetastatic breast cancer in Canada, assuming current practice patterns. A second report will describe the lifetime costs of treating all stages of breast cancer. These data will then be incorporated into Statistics Canada's Population Health Model (POHEM) to perform cost-effectiveness studies of new therapeutic interventions for breast cancer, such as the cost-effectiveness of day surgery, or of radiotherapy to all breast cancer patients undergoing breast surgery.  (+info)

Direct costs of coronary artery bypass grafting in patients aged 65 years or more and those under age 65. (4/132)

BACKGROUND: Over the past 20 years, there have been marked increases in rates of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) among older people in Canada. The objectives of this study were to accurately estimate the direct medical costs of CABG in older patients (age 65 years or more) and to compare CABG costs for this age group with those for patients less than 65 years of age. METHODS: Direct medical costs were estimated from a sample of 205 older and 202 younger patients with triple-vessel or left main coronary artery disease who underwent isolated CABG at The Toronto Hospital, a tertiary care university-affiliated hospital, between Apr. 1, 1991, and Mar. 31, 1992. Costs are expressed in 1992 Canadian dollars from a third-party payer perspective. RESULTS: The mean costs of CABG in older and younger patients respectively were $16,500 and $15,600 for elective, uncomplicated cases, $23,200 and $19,200 for nonelective, uncomplicated cases, $29,200 and $20,300 for elective, complicated cases, and $33,600 and $23,700 for nonelective, complicated cases. Age remained a significant determinant of costs after adjustment for severity of heart disease and for comorbidity. Between 59% and 91% of the cost difference between older and younger patients was accounted for by higher intensive care unit and ward costs. INTERPRETATION: CABG was more costly in older people, especially in complicated cases, even after an attempt to adjust for severity of disease and comorbidity. Future studies should attempt to identify modifiable factors that contribute to longer intensive care and ward stays for older patients.  (+info)

Screening for breast cancer: time, travel, and out-of-pocket expenses. (5/132)

BACKGROUND: We estimated the personal costs to women found to have a breast problem (either breast cancer or benign breast disease) in terms of time spent, miles traveled, and cash payments made for detection, diagnosis, initial treatment, and follow-up. METHODS: We analyzed data from personal interviews with 465 women from four communities in Florida. These women were randomly selected from those with a recent breast biopsy (within 6-8 months) that indicated either breast cancer (208 women) or benign breast disease (257 women). One community was the site of a multifaceted intervention to promote breast screening, and the other three communities were comparison sites for evaluation of that intervention. All P values are two-sided. RESULTS: In comparison with time spent and travel distance for women with benign breast disease (13 hours away from home and 56 miles traveled), time spent and travel distance were statistically significantly higher (P<.001) for treatment and follow-up of women with breast cancer (89 hours and 369 miles). Personal financial costs for treatment of women with breast cancer were also statistically significantly higher (breast cancer = $604; benign breast disease = $76; P < .001) but were statistically significantly lower for detection and diagnosis (breast cancer = $170; benign breast disease = $310; P < .001). Among women with breast cancer, time spent for treatment was statistically significantly lower (P = .013) when their breast cancer was detected by screening (68.9 hours) than when it was detected because of symptoms (84.2 hours). Personal cash payments for detection, diagnosis, and treatment were statistically significantly lower among women whose breast problems were detected by screening than among women whose breast problems were detected because of symptoms (screening detected = $453; symptom detected = $749; P = .045). CONCLUSION: There are substantial personal costs for women who are found to have a breast problem, whether the costs are associated with problems identified through screening or because of symptoms.  (+info)

The direct health care costs of obesity in the United States. (6/132)

OBJECTIVES: Recent estimates suggest that obesity accounts for 5.7% of US total direct health care costs, but these estimates have not accounted for the increased death rate among obese people. This article examines whether the estimated direct health care costs attributable to obesity are offset by the increased mortality rate among obese individuals. METHODS: Data on death rates, relative risks of death with obesity, and health care costs at different ages were used to estimate direct health care costs of obesity from 20 to 85 years of age with and without accounting for increased death rates associated with obesity. Sensitivity analyses used different values of relative risk of death, given obesity, and allowed the relative costs due to obesity per unit of time to vary with age. RESULTS: Direct health care costs from 20 to 85 years of age were estimated to be approximately 25% lower when differential mortality was taken into account. Sensitivity analyses suggested that direct health care costs of obesity are unlikely to exceed 4.32% or to be lower than 0.89%. CONCLUSIONS: Increased mortality among obese people should be accounted for in order not to overestimate health care costs.  (+info)

An overview of cancer economics. Based on a presentation by C. Daniel Mullins, PhD. (7/132)

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has estimated that the aggregate outlay for cancer, including research and direct medical costs, was about $104 billion in 1996. Treatment expenditures for the 3 leading types of cancer--breast, lung, and prostate--total $16 billion a year, with breast cancer alone accounting for $6 billion. Early detection is key to reducing the cost of breast cancer because the costs per patient are higher for those who die than for those who survive and the cost effectiveness of detection and treatment are inseparable. Likewise, screening can be cost effective but only if options exist for treatment. Lack of access to care for financial and other reasons continues to be a major impediment to early detection.  (+info)

Payer cost savings with endometrial ablation therapy. (8/132)

CONTEXT: Dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB) is a significant cost burden for payers in the US healthcare system because hysterectomy, the common curative treatment, is associated with high hospitalization costs. OBJECTIVE: To determine the potential economic benefit to payers of endometrial ablation as an alternate treatment for the benign DUB disorder. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective analysis of healthcare claims including the total direct costs to the payer (reimbursement) and patient (copayment). The study was designed to capture all DUB-related claims costs for the entire episode of care from initial diagnosis through follow-up care for 12 months postprocedure. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty-four months of claims data from premenopausal women aged 25 to 50 years enrolled in a large managed care organization were screened based on relevant diagnostic and procedural codes. Incidence and costs of hysterectomy and ablation were determined, and potential payer savings were calculated based on hypothetical hysterectomy-to-ablation conversion rates of 25% to 50%. RESULTS: By performing ablation in lieu of hysterectomy for DUB, an average per-case savings of approximately $4,300 is possible. Potential annual payer savings are approximately $515,000 and $1.03 million for a 1-million-member plan, based on the 25% and 50% conversion rates, respectively. The recently approved uterine balloon therapy ablation technique could be instrumental in overcoming current barriers to wider utilization of ablation surgery. CONCLUSION: If ablation is used in lieu of hysterectomy when medically appropriate, a payer organization could reduce the cost of treating patients with DUB who are not responsive to drug therapy or dilation and curettage alone. Our data suggest that hysterectomy is the most common surgical therapy for this disorder, even though the less invasive endometrial ablation approach is more consistent with accepted DUB treatment guidelines. Payers therefore have an economic incentive to adopt guidelines and reimbursement policies that promote ablation therapy for DUB.  (+info)

Results are reported of a prospective study, carried out by the Mass Radiography Service of the North-West Metropolitan Region for the purpose of evaluating early lung cancer detection by six-monthly chest radiographs. The lung cancer experience of a test group of 29,723 men aged 40 and over who were offered six-monthly chest radiographs over a period of three years is compared with a similarly constituted control group of 25,311 men who were radiographed only at the beginning and the end of the study. In the test group 29,416 men (98·9%) and in the control group 25,044 men (99%) were followed up. The methods employed to achieve this result are analysed. The six-monthly surveys of the test group yielded 65 cases of lung cancer, giving an annual incidence and detection rate of 0·9 per thousand examined. Of these cases 65% were resected. Of all cases of lung cancer in the test group, irrespective of their source of detection, 43·6% were operable, compared with 29% in the control group. The ...
In many courts of law, the human capital approach derived from labour economics is used to quantify damages incurred by natural persons based on lost income. However, this does not always take the full social cost of the injury into account. It can be argued that a persons life is not only determined by the salary earned throughout the persons lifetime (which then raises the question of what the persons lifetime would actually have been had the damage sustained not been sustained), but also through other activities that bring about enjoyment such as walking, seeing and being able to participate in recreational activities that might have been foreclosed following the maiming of the individual concerned. This means that the human capital approach to quantifying damages may not be optimal in approximating the true extent of damages and other techniques such as hedonic damages, contingency valuation, travel cost, averting behaviour and cost of illness may have to be resorted to. A technique used ...
The majority of participants stated that patient factors influenced their follow-up practices, except two GPs who asserted that they would not change their follow-up intervals because of patient factors. These factors included the patients age; general health (including cancer-related anxiety) and co-morbidities (including immunosuppression and mobility); previous skin cancer and family history of skin cancers; general skin health; the histology (size, type, aggressiveness, stage) and excision margin of the skin cancer.. These factors often led to more frequent follow-up visits with patients; for example, when factoring previous skin cancers into follow-up intervals, one GP stated:. … someone who grows cancers all the time and every time you see them theyve got three more new ones, Ill see them at three-monthly intervals then I have them on six-monthly checks forever. If its a simple excision, first skin cancer and theyve had a skin check, then Ill probably see them six-monthly, and then ...
We enrolled 1,088 valid patients, 62.0% male, aged 19-90 (median=60) years: 31.8% had hepatitis C, 20.4% cirrhosis, 20.3% hepatitis B, 11.9% had liver transplantation (LT), 7.8% hepatic carcinoma (HCC), 7.8% had other hepatic diseases (cholestasis, NASH, etc.). Overall, mean direct cost was 664.77€/patient-month. Hospitalizations contributed to the 50.6% of direct costs; treatment contributed 41.2% of costs; outpatient accesses contributed 2.7% and non medical costs contributed to 5.5% of direct costs. Patients and their family caregivers lost 1.15 days/patient-month of productivity. Both direct and indirect costs were on average lower in patients with hepatitis (258 €/patient-month and 0.5days/patient-month), increased in patients with cirrhosis (494€/patient-month and 1.73days/patient-month) and HCC (1224€/patient-month and 1.75days/patient-month) and among patients undergoing LT (2629€/patient-month and 2.99days/patient-month). As regards HRQoL, 23.8% of patients reported problems ...

Lenacapavir is active at multiple stages of the viral life cycle, including early uncoating (where it is most potent) but also later during core assembly and maturation phases. It has higher potency than other small molecule HIV drugs with activity in a picomolar range (mean EC50 0.05 nM: range 0.02 to 0.15) and in many cell types. As a drug in a new class, it remains sensitive to drug resistant HIV from all other classes. The binding site is conserved across all HIV-1 sub-types and slow metabolic clearance with single subcutaneous injection at doses of 30 mg to 450 mg produces systemic exposure for ,6 months.. ...
So last week I had my six-monthly visit to the optician to check all is well with my eyes and my contact lens prescription. My glasses have been mostly relegated to indoor wear in recent years as they are so old, bent and generally awful. I had been avoiding the expense of new ones for ages but when I recently suffered a bout of conjunctivitis and had to reveal my specs to the world, I was so embarrassed by them that I did begin to think it might be time for a new pair. My optician was also horrified by the outdated prescription Id been wearing and I was persuaded a little more when he showed me what I could have. When I discovered that my branch of Black and Lizars has become an outlet for bargain designer frames the purchase finally became a no-brainer ...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the relative impacts of three physician-delivered smoking interventions in combination with follow-up contact from behavioral counselors. DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial with pre- post measures of smoking rates. This paper reports six-month outcome data. SETTING: Participants were recruited from among patients seen by 196 medical and family practice residents in five primary care clinics. PARTICIPANTS: Participants were 1,286 patients out of 1,946 eligible smokers approached. The patient group was 57% female and 91% white, had an average age of 35 years, and smoked, on average, slightly over one pack per day. INTERVENTION: Physicians were trained to provide each of three interventions: advice only, brief patient-centered counseling, and counseling plus prescription of nicotine-containing gum (Nicorette). Half the patients received follow-up in the form of telephone counseling at three-monthly intervals from behavioral counselors. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Changes in smoking

GnRHas are derived from native GnRH but contain modifications that result in increased potency and a longer half-life. They were initially approved for the treatment of prostate cancer. After a study showing that treatment with a GnRHa slowed growth velocity and bone age advancement and increased predicted final height in children with CPP [53], the monthly version Lupron Depot was approved by the FDA in 1993. This long-acting GnRHa in the form of monthly intramuscular leuprolide acetate was prescribed almost exclusively for the treatment of CPP in the U.S. for many years. Three-monthly depot preparations, also administered via intramuscular injection, have also been used to treat CPP, particularly in Europe [54]. Several studies as well as a meta-analysis have suggested that the degree of biochemical suppression achieved with 3-monthly dosing is consistently less than that seen with monthly GnRHa administration [54-57]. However, the clinical response to treatment appears to be similar based on ...

The IDD community is such a tiny percentage of our state population and the families and/or direct service workers have very little time to devote to calling or writing their elected representatives and/or DHHS/DMA/DMHDDSAS with their concerns and fears. I have an email list of 200 +/- families and some of them forward my emails to other contacts. Please believe me when I tell you that families are just being disregarded. LMEs, provider agencies, traditional IDD advocacy groups ... they all are simply looking to preserve their business models and are negotiating away everything that the IDD families I know are working to preserve. Please dont misunderstand me. The IDD families I know do not like the current CAP-MR/DD Waiver(s) and the goofy tiers idea. We never did. The IDD families that I know completely understand the dire budget situation and are willing to accept our fair share of rate reductions as a way to reduce the costs of serving the IDD population.

In 2002, the US Federal Highway Administration released a study titled Corrosion Costs and Preventive Strategies in the United States on the direct costs associated with metallic corrosion in the US industry. In 1998, the total annual direct cost of corrosion in the U.S. was ca. $276 billion (ca. 3.2% of the US gross domestic product).[8] Broken down into five specific industries, the economic losses are $22.6 billion in infrastructure; $17.6 billion in production and manufacturing; $29.7 billion in transportation; $20.1 billion in government; and $47.9 billion in utilities.[9] Rust is one of the most common causes of bridge accidents. As rust has a much higher volume than the originating mass of iron, its build-up can also cause failure by forcing apart adjacent parts. It was the cause of the collapse of the Mianus river bridge in 1983, when the bearings rusted internally and pushed one corner of the road slab off its support. Three drivers on the roadway at the time died as the slab fell ...
For my own purposes, I decided to boil it down to three factors: size, CEO compensation and organizational efficiency. Again, there are many ways to determine the latter, though having spent more than a dozen years in the nonprofit fundraising profession myself, the one that people tend to be most interested in is efficiency. The easiest way to measure this is to break out what percentage of the charitys budget goes toward indirect, or administrative costs (like the CEO, fundraising, and other administrative staff), compared with the amount committed to direct services.. To be clear, direct services doesnt refer to money or goods given directly to those in need. Generally, it includes all staff and organization costs related to those direct services. So whereas a Vice President or a financial officer would be an indirect expense, a case manager or nurse - along with direct assistance, meals and housing - would be lumped together as direct expenses. ...
This study aims to analyse the non-linear relationship between Body Mass Index (BMI) and direct health care costs, and to quantify the resulting cost fraction attributable to obesity in Germany. Five cross-sectional surveys of cohort studies in southern Germany were pooled, resulting in data of 6757 individuals (31-96 years old). Self-reported information on health care utilisation was used to estimate direct health care costs for the year 2011. The relationship between measured BMI and annual costs was analysed using generalised additive models, and the cost fraction attributable to obesity was calculated. We found a non-linear association of BMI and health care costs with a continuously increasing slope for increasing BMI without any clear threshold. Under the consideration of the non-linear BMI-cost relationship, a shift in the BMI distribution so that the BMI of each individual is lowered by one point is associated with a 2.1% reduction of mean direct costs in the population. If obesity was

In light of this evidence, it is important to emphasize earlier diagnosis of HIV infection to prevent the complications to hospitalizations and higher associated costs. The cost of HAART accounted for 60% of the total direct costs. However, it should be recognized that HAART can offer financial returns to society, as many HIV-infected people of working age experienced improvements in their general health after HAART and became economically productive [4,6,18]. Our previous study conducted in the early HAART era demonstrated. that, at the population level, HAART produced a saving in direct in-patient costs, which appeared to be limited in time, because of the increase in the cost of antiretroviral drugs since the year 2000 selleck chemicals llc [19]. Thus, it seems important to identify strategies to reduce the costs of HAART. The main contribution of this paper is to place the HIV epidemic in a general context, but the analysis has some limitations. First, it is not a cost-effectiveness analysis ...
A total of sixty-four patients were examined: 32 were head and neck irradiated and 32 were general clinic patients without any systemic pathology.

Downloadable ! Author(s): Jorn-Steffen Pischke. 1996 Abstract: Using data from the German Socio Economic Panel, I describe the incidence, attributes, and outcomes of continuous training received by workers in Germany between 1986 and 1989. Further training is primarily a white collar phenomenon, is concentrated among the more highly educated, and in the service sector and in public administration. Much of this training seems to be general and provided to workers by their employers at no direct cost. On the other hand, the training also does not seem to result in large short-run wage gains, especially for men. These results are somewhat at odds with the conventional models about the financing of human capital formation.
