Evidence of improving survival of patients with rectal cancer in france: a population based study. (1/1777)

BACKGROUND: Over the past 20 years there have been many changes in the management of rectal cancer. Their impact on the overall population is not well known. AIMS: To determine trends in management and prognosis of rectal cancer in two French regions. SUBJECTS: 1978 patients with a rectal carcinoma diagnosed between 1978 and 1993. METHODS: Time trends in treatment, stage at diagnosis, operative mortality, and survival were studied on a four year basis. A non-conditional logistic regression was performed to obtain an odds ratio for each period adjusted for the other variables. To estimate the independent effect of the period a multivariate relative survival analysis was performed. RESULTS: Over the 16 year period resection rates increased from 66.0% to 80.1%; the increase was particularly noticeable for sphincter saving procedures (+30.6% per four years, p=0.03). The percentage of patients receiving adjuvant radiotherapy increased from 24.0% to 40.0% (p=0.02). The proportion of patients with Dukes' type A cancer increased from 17. 7% to 30.6% with a corresponding decrease in those with more advanced disease. Operative mortality decreased by 31.1% per four years (p=0.03). All these improvements have resulted in a dramatic increase in relative survival (from 35.4% for the 1978-1981 period to 57.0% for the 1985-1989 period). CONCLUSIONS: Substantial advances in the management of rectal cancer have been achieved, but there is evidence that further improvements can be made in order to increase survival.  (+info)

Development of a heart failure center: a medical center and cardiology practice join forces to improve care and reduce costs . (2/1777)

Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a rapidly growing and expensive cardiovascular disorder. Conventional care for CHF is ineffective and results in a cycle of "crisis management" that includes repeated emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and physician visits. Recently, a number of outpatient coronary care centers that provide consistent, aggressive outpatient therapies and extensive patient education have emerged and are successfully breaking this cycle of dependence on hospital services. One such effort is the Heart Institute's Heart Failure Center, the result of a partnership between a private-practice cardiology group and our tertiary-care medical center. Our program includes not only patient education and outpatient infusions of inotropic agents, but an electronic linkage to the emergency department and home healthcare services. Preliminary data show that 16 months after the program was initiated, hospital admissions decreased by 30%, hospital days by 42% and average length of stay by 17%. An effective outpatient heart failure program can alleviate the economic burden of CHF and improve the quality of patient care.  (+info)

Resource utilization and work or school loss reported by patients with diabetes: experience in diabetes training programs. (3/1777)

Diabetes exerts a major economic impact on healthcare in the United States both in terms of direct and indirect costs. Diabetes management and education programs designed to assist patients in achieving more optimal glycemic control represent a potential mechanism for reducing the morbidity and costs associated with diabetes. The relationship between HbA1c and patient hospitalizations and between HbA1c and days lost from work or school related to diabetes within the past year were evaluated. A cohort of 2359 patients with diabetes (188 type I, 2171 type II) referred to a comprehensive diabetes self-management training program was included in the analyses. Overall, 350 (14.8%) patients reported hospitalization, and 212 (9.0%) reported days lost from work or school. Patients with type I diabetes reported more hospitalizations (26.1% vs 13.9% and days lost (19.2% vs 8.1%) than type II patients. For the hospitalization outcome, the multivariate analyses indicated that younger age, the number of co-morbidities, and the duration of diabetes exerted a greater influence on the reported numbers of hospitalization than glycemic control. For the days lost outcome, the multivariate analyses indicated that there was a marginally significant association between patients with poor glycemic control and reported work or school loss related to diabetes (odds ratio = 1.5; 95% confidence interval, 1.0-2.2). These data suggest that interventions that improve glycemic control may decrease indirect costs related to diabetes.  (+info)

Patient health management: a promising paradigm in Canadian healthcare. (5/1777)

Disease management, or the focused application of resources to achieve desired health outcomes, began in Canada in 1971 with the introduction of a universal healthcare program and a single government payor. Although relatively unfocused and nonrestrictive by contemporary standards, this program was successful in terms of outcomes. However, it is expensive, and Canada's rapidly aging population is fueling a growing demand for more efficacious medical therapies. As a result, isolated services are being restricted in an effort to reduce costs. As a result of these changes and low prescription and patient compliance rates for efficacious therapies, total system costs have risen, there is a growing concern about deterioration of health outcomes, and stakeholders are dissatisfied. To optimize healthcare outcomes and reduce costs, a new paradigm--patient health management (PHM)--has emerged. With PHM, clinical and cost outcomes are continually measured and communicated to providers in an attempt to promote more efficacious care. PHM also seeks to avoid restrictive practices that are now associated with detrimental health outcomes and increased costs. PHM has proved successful when applied to acute and chronic cardiac disease treatment. It remains untested for most other diseases, but available data suggest that the comprehensive, evidence-based disease and systems management that characterizes PHM is likely to achieve the best health outcomes for the most people at the lowest possible costs.  (+info)

Clinical improvement with bottom-line impact: custom care planning for patients with acute and chronic illnesses in a managed care setting. (6/1777)

A fully capitated, integrated healthcare delivery system endeavored to improve the care of its sickest members. A computer algorithm severity index that encompassed a 1-year history of hospitalization and adjusted for inclusion of a variety of chronic conditions was calculated on the basis of clinical and administrative claims databases for the entire membership of the healthcare system. Monthly updated lists were produced to find patients with acute and chronic illnesses. These patients accounted for one-fourth of hospital admissions and almost half of inpatient days, but they numbered less than 1% of system membership. Each listed person, regardless of age or diagnosis, had a custom care plan formulated by nurses in consultation with the primary care physician and involved specialists. Plan development featured in-home assessments in most instances and incorporated a variety of ancillary services, telephone and home-care follow-up, and strategies to increase continuity and access to care. Patient-reported functional status was obtained at establishment of the care plan and periodically thereafter in expectation of raising the cross-sectional mean values of the population. Three months after initiation of the program, the expected winter hospitalization peak did not occur, and utilization tended to be lower in subsequent months. Inpatient admissions among members with acute and chronic illnesses decreased 20%, and inpatient days decreased 28% from baseline levels. Among the subset of seniors in the population, inpatient days decreased 37%. Net financial impact was a medical expenditure decrease of more than 5% from 1995 levels. On a population basis, functional status was raised, and the acuity of patients' conditions and need for inpatient hospital care were reduced.  (+info)

Comparison of intranasal triamcinolone acetonide with oral loratadine in the treatment of seasonal ragweed-induced allergic rhinitis. (7/1777)

A double-blind, randomized, multicenter, parallel-group controlled study compared the efficacy and safety of intranasal triamcinolone acetonide (220 micrograms/day) and oral loratadine (10 mg/day) in patients with at least two seasons of ragweed-induced seasonal allergic rhinitis. A 28-day screening period, including a 5-day baseline period, preceded a 4-week treatment period. Reduction in rhinitis symptom scores was evident in both groups as early as day 1, with no significant between-group differences during week 1. At weeks 2, 3, and 4, patients treated with triamcinolone acetonide were significantly (P < 0.05) more improved in total nasal score, nasal itch, nasal stuffiness, and sneezing than were patients treated with loratadine. At weeks 3 and 4, rhinorrhea and ocular symptoms were significantly (P < 0.05) more improved from baseline among triamcinolone acetonide patients compared with loratadine patients. There was no significant between-group difference in relief from postnasal drip at any time point. Physicians' global evaluations significantly (P = 0.002) favored triamcinolone acetonide at the final visit, with moderate to complete relief of symptoms attained by 68% of triamcinolone acetonide patients and 59% of loratadine patients. Over the 4-week treatment period, triamcinolone acetonide patients had significantly greater improvement in total nasal score, nasal itch, nasal stuffiness, sneezing, and ocular symptoms. Both treatments were well tolerated, with headache being the most frequently reported drug-related adverse effect in both the triamcinolone acetonide (15%) and loratadine (11%) groups. These results indicate that triamcinolone acetonide is more effective than oral loratadine in relieving the symptoms of ragweed-induced seasonal allergic rhinitis.  (+info)

These retrospective data demonstrate that participants in a managed care-sponsored diabetes disease management program experienced lower overall paid insurance claims for health care compared with those not in disease management. This difference was not only statistically significant but substantial, amounting to $104.86 per member per month or $ 1,294.32 per year. For the 3,118 continuously enrolled patients included in this analysis, this amounts to a total of $4,035,689.70 per year in fewer claims paid compared with nonprogram patients. Lower claims for program patients were present in both commercial and Medicare risk insurance. As noted above, the total budget, including capital for all disease management programs in this HMO, was ∼$4.2 million per year. Because ∼43% of all patients seen in disease management had diabetes, we believe the estimated allocated cost of ∼$1.81 million for diabetes disease management contrasts favorably with the $4,035,689.70 in fewer claims for the ...

The research report simplifies the complex process of developing a scalable chronic disease management program across three steps.
Disease management is the concept of reducing healthcare costs and improving quality of life for individuals with chronic disease conditions by preventing or minimizing the effects of a disease through integrative care. Also can be called care management, health management programs, or disease self-management. In medicine, Disease Management refers to the processes and people concerned with improving or maintaining health in large numbers of people. As opposed to epidemiology, which is generally concerned with sudden or persistent virulent outbreaks of disease, Disease Management is concerned with common chronic illnesses. Illnesses that Disease Management would concern itself with would include: coronary artery disease, renal failure, hypertension, obesity, diabetes, asthma, cancer, arthritis, and other common ailments. In the United States, Disease Management (DM) is a large industry with many vendors. DM is especially important to health insurers, agencies, trusts, associations and employers ...

In this study, disease management programs, as defined by the elements of the Chronic Care Model, are analyzed as a traveling technology. A traveling technology refers to the translations, adaptations, and expenditures that occur when an object or program moves from one location to another; traveling is more than the translation of the disease management projects, as it encompasses the translation of the disease management programs to the local setting, but focuses on the travel expenditures and travel documents created in the process [27]. As a result, project leaders play an important role in this process, especially during the development and early implementation phases. Its important to note that the traveling expenditures of the programs are much more than financial and include the social costs and changed expectations, the administrative effort, and the altered obligations for patients and staff; these traveling expenditures are often hidden and in many ways, unexpected by the project ...

Plant diseases have caused severe losses to humans in several ways. The goal of plant disease management is to reduce the economic and aesthetic damage caused by plant diseases. The main objective of this review was to understand about a gene pyramiding concepts with principles &application in disease management. Disease management procedures are frequently determined by disease forecasting or disease modeling rather than on either a calendar or prescription basis. Correct diagnosis of a disease is necessary to identify the pathogen, which is the real target of any disease management program. Improving disease resistance in crops is crucial for stable food production. Quantitative trait loci (QTLs), which usually have smaller individual effects than R-genes but confer broad-spectrum or non-race-specific resistance, can contribute to durable disease resistance (DR). Gene pyramiding holds greater prospects to attain durable resistance against biotic and abiotic stresses in crop. Agene pyramiding involves

BACKGROUND: Disease management programmes are increasingly used to improve the efficacy and effectiveness of chronic care delivery. But, disease management programme development and implementation is a complex undertaking that requires effective decision-making. Choices made in the earliest phases of programme development are crucial, as they ultimately impact costs, outcomes and sustainability. METHODS: To increase our understanding of the choices that primary healthcare practices face when implementing such programmes and to stimulate successful implementation and sustainability, we compared the early implementation of eight cardiovascular disease management programmes initiated and managed by healthcare practices in various regions of the Netherlands. Using a mixed-methods design, we identified differences in and challenges to programme implementation in terms of context, patient characteristics, disease management level, healthcare utilisation costs, development costs and health-related quality of
To the degree that one person can be credited or blamed for the very existence of a $1.1-billion segment of American health care, Al Lewis is that person when it comes to disease management. If you doubt that, just ask him. Blunt, funny, and supremely confident of his knowledge of the field, Lewis founded and is a past president of the Disease Management Association of America, and now heads the Disease Management Purchasing Consortium International. DMPC is a consultant and broker with 89 members that include health plans, private and public employers covering 80 million lives, the Congressional Budget Office, and leading accreditation groups.. With a potentially huge boost from the Medicare Modernization Act, disease management could be on the verge of a boom, Lewis argues, but only if it overcomes a major obstacle: Nobody believes its numbers. Many employers wont contract with DM companies because they doubt vendors claims about how much money their programs save. Lewis says these doubts ...
Disease Management is part of a holistic population health management strategy, and SPHs Disease Management Survey provides valuable information for improving patient care and driving action plans and QI initiatives.

A prevalent, chronic condition among members of the mushrooming elderly population in the United States, heart failure (HF) is a logical focus for population-based disease management. Evidence supporting the premise that multidisciplinary interventions can significantly improve clinical outcomes while decreasing the cost of medical care for people with HF is steadily mounting. A growing number of controlled and observational studies focus on the effects of HF disease management on re-admission rates, length of stay, and improvement in appropriate diagnostic testing and prescribing. This paper describes a large-scale, comprehensive HF program and reports on clinical quality, utilization, and financial outcomes observed after 1 year. The preliminary findings strengthen the case for comprehensive HF disease management as an effective means for improving clinical outcomes and reducing total medical costs for large patient populations.

Investigations on various aspects of plant-pathogen interactions have the ultimate aim of providing information that may be useful for the development of effective crop disease management systems. Molecular techniques have accelerated the formulation of short- and long-term strategies of disease management. Exclusion and eradication of plant pathogens by rapid and precise detection and identification of microbial pathogens in symptomatic and asymptomatic plants and planting materials by employing molecular methods has been practiced extensively by quarantines and certification programs with a decisive advantage. Identification of sources of resistance genes, cloning and characterization of desired resistance genes and incorporation of resistance gene(s) into cultivars and transformation of plants with selected gene(s) have been successfully performed by applying appropriate molecular techniques. Induction of resistance in susceptible cultivars by using biotic and abiotic inducers of resistance ...

The relationship between poverty and poor health are strikingly apparent in the United States. People living below the federal poverty line have a shorter life expectancy and higher incidence of chronic disease than those with higher incomes. The poor, however, are less likely than the non-poor to have recent contact with a physician or engage in preventive care. This article discusses the significance of chronic disease management in improving health outcomes for low-income individuals and in reducing preventable health-related expenditures from a provider perspective. The article concludes with a discussion of the role of community health and social workers in coordinating care between providers and poor patients.. According to data from the 2001-2005 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), poor children, defined as those living at or below the federal poverty level, are more likely than other children to suffer chronic health problems (Currie and Lin 2007).

Background and aim. Heart failure (HF) is a common condition associated with poor quality of life (QoL), high morbidity and mortality and is frequently occurring in primary health care (PHC). It involves a substantial economic burden on the health care expenditure. There are modern pharmacological treatments with evident impact on QoL, morbidity, mortality, and proved to be cost-effective. Despite this knowledge, the treatment of HF is considered somewhat insufficient. There are several HF management programmes (HFMP) showing beneficial effects but these studies is predominantly based in hospital care (HC).. The first aim of this thesis was to describe patients with HF in the PHC regarding gender differences, diagnosis, treatment and health related costs (I, II).The second aim was to evaluate whether HFMP have beneficial effects in the PHC regarding cardiac function, quality of life, health care utilization and health care-related costs (III,IV).. Methods. The initial study involved ...

The disgruntlement felt by John Roglieri, M.D., M.B.A., regarding physician nonadherence to guidelines also runs deep. Roglieri, corporate medical director for NYLCare Health Plans, goes so far as to contend that guidelines dont work because physicians just wont follow them. He says that several years ago he found that half of his physicians were not properly prescribing beta blockers. Roglieri drew up some guidelines and distributed them. The next year, a survey found that even fewer physicians were complying!. We went back a third time, after wed established a disease management program, and we found that it had a significant positive impact, he says. With the DM program you educate the patient to self-care and that gives you more leverage with the doctors.. Wallendjack and Roglieri are not alone in trying to cajole physicians into doing things that established medical wisdom says should be done automatically..

The Austrian diabetes disease management program (DMP) was introduced in 2007 in order to improve health care delivery for diabetics via the promotion of treatment according to guidelines. Considering the current low participation rates in the DMP and the question of further promotion of the program, it is of particular interest for health insurance providers in Austria to assess whether enrollment in the DMP leads to differences in the pattern of the provision of in- and outpatient services, as well as to the subsequent costs in order to determine overall program efficiency. Historic cohort study comparing average annual levels of in- and outpatient health services utilization and its associated costs for patients enrolled and not enrolled in the DMP before (2006) and 2 years after (2009) the implementation of the program in Austria. Data on the use of services and data on costs were extracted from the records of the Austrian Social Insurance Institution for Business. 12,199 persons were identified as
Results We included 7070 individuals in our analyses. Male sex, higher age and receiving old age pension, a higher Charlson Score and a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes increased the odds for DMP-CHD enrollment significantly. Individuals with a diagnosed myocardial infarction (MI) were also more likely to be enrolled in the DMP-CHD. We found a significant interaction effect for MI and sex, indicating that the association between MI and DMP enrollment is stronger for women than for men ...
To improve and assess the effectiveness of disease management programs (DMPs), it is critical to understand how many people drop out of disease management programs and why. We used routine data provided by a statutory health insurance fund from the regions North Rhine, North Wurttemberg and Hesse. As part of the German DMP for type 2 diabetes, the insurance fund received regular documentation of all members participating in the program. We followed 10,989 patients who enrolled in the DMP between July 2004 and December 2005 until the end of 2007 to study how many patients dropped out of the program. Dropout was defined based on the discontinuation of program documentation on a particular patient, excluding situations in which the patient died or left the insurance fund. Predictors of dropout, assessed at the time of program enrolment, were explored using logistic regression analysis. 5.5% of the patients dropped out of the disease management program within the observation period. Predictors of dropout at

In this trial, treatment with disease management was not superior to usual care with respect to the primary outcome, i.e. time to first hospital admission for heart failure or death from any cause. The study intervention prolonged the time to first hospital admission for heart failure, especially among patients enrolled after recent hospitalization for heart failure or with ischemic heart failure. There was also a trend, although not statistically significant, towards a reduction in the number of hospital admissions and in-hospital days for heart failure. The intervention was also effective in achieving clinically important improvements in health-related quality of life and it reduced the likelihood of depression.. The disease management intervention tested in this study was comprehensive and included delivery of care by multi-disciplinary teams within designated heart failure centers and a central call center, home tele-monitoring, employment of information technology to promote sharing of ...

The role of self-efficacy in cardiovascular disease self-management: a review of effective programs Hannah Katch, Holly MeadThe George Washington University, Department of Health Policy, Washington DC, USAResearch objective: To conduct a comprehensive, systematic review of disease self-management programs for patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD), looking specifically at those with self-efficacy as a key component to the effectiveness of such programs on CVD management and outcomes.Study design: We conducted a review of effective strategies promoting patient involvement and engagement in the self-management of CVD. To narrow the scope of the review, we defined strategies that were empirically tested and showed a measurable and positive impact on outcomes that reflect improved self-management (eg, medication adherence or patient’s perceived management skills) and/or improved clinical outcomes (eg, lower blood pressure or reduced hospitalization).Results: We identified five disease management
Most successful interventions in chronic disease management entail the delegation of responsibility by the primary care doctor to team members for ensuring that patients receive proved clinical and self management support services. 2-4 8 Often the team is more effective with the addition of new disciplines, such as clinical pharmacy9 or nursing case management.8 Effective chronic illness programmes tend to exploit the varied skills of the team by using the following strategies.. Population based care-Population based care is an approach to planning and delivering care to defined patient populations that tries to ensure that effective interventions reach all patients who need them.10 It begins with a protocol or guideline that defines the components (assessments and treatments) of high quality care.

HF management is a major focus for the medical and nursing professions because HF is the most common reason for hospital admission in people ≥65 years of age and is associated with high mortality and morbidity, and low quality of life.1 McAlister et al did a systematic and rigorous search for randomised controlled trials (RCTs) to determine the effect of HF disease management programmes on mortality and hospital admission. These programmes generally involve multidisciplinary teams that employ guidelines or care paths and specialised clinics dedicated to comprehensive management.2. 11 RCTs were included in the meta-analysis. Patients who received multidisciplinary HF management had fewer hospital admissions, but effects on mortality were inconclusive. Several factors limit the generalisability of the results. All studies had poorly defined control groups and relatively small sample sizes. Intervention strategies were quite diverse and not comprehensively described. Factors other than the ...

Heart failure remains a significant cause of death, in spite of recent declines in overall mortality from cardiovascular disease. Heart failure is associated with increasing costs for healthcare, mainly for recurrent hospital admissions. Disease management programs aimed to improve patients outcome while containing healthcare costs,were employed in heart failure patients with varying results. Such programs contain various components, including patient education and empowerment, monitoring patients adherence to therapy, telemonitoring of vital parameters, etc. Designated heart failure clinics were also employed in care given to these patients ...

Elevations in left ventricular filling pressures and pulmonary artery pressures are closely correlated with clinical congestion, functional limitation, and prognosis in patients with HF (41). These intracardiac and pulmonary artery pressures increase several days to weeks before the onset of symptoms that typically trigger hospital admission (41-43). Thus, ambulatory hemodynamic monitoring could provide an early warning of potential decompensation as well as facilitate the day-to-day management of patients with HF by allowing for the titration of medications on the basis of reliable physiological data. Several systems are therefore currently under development that measure pressures directly in the right ventricle (RV), left atrium, and pulmonary artery.. The RV pressure sensor system is similar to a pacemaker generator with a modified unipolar pacemaker lead (Chronicle, Medtronic, Minneapolis, Minnesota). Information includes continuous heart rate, body temperature, and hemodynamics such RV ...
Chronic heart failure (CHF) is a deadly and disabling syndrome that has reached epidemic proportions in Australia (and in other aging populations).1 Population based, hospital data from many countries,2 including Australia,3 has shown encouraging declines in the rate of CHF related admissions. However, the overall burden of CHF, in respect to the number of individuals affected, all related hospitalisations and persistently high mortality, remains unacceptably high. Unfortunately, CHF is now becoming a major health problem in the developing world.4 The continued burden and adverse impact of CHF defies the introduction of new pharmacological agents and devices that underpin contemporary expert guidelines.5 | RACGP
A proof-of-concept paper recently published in Lab on a Chip (online June 25) explains how the Houston Methodist nanomedicine researchers accomplished long-term delivery of drugs for rheumatoid arthritis and high blood pressure, medications that are often administered at specific times of the day or at varying dosages based on patient needs. We see this universal drug implant as part of the future of health care innovation. Some chronic disease drugs have the greatest benefit of delivery during overnight hours when its inconvenient for patients to take oral medication. This device could vastly improve their disease management and prevent them from missing doses, simply with a medical professional overseeing their treatment remotely, said Alessandro Grattoni, Ph.D., corresponding author and chair of the department of nanomedicine at Houston Methodist Research Institute.. Grattoni and the Houston Methodist researchers have worked on implantable nanochannel delivery systems to regulate the ...

COPD often overlaps with other conditions such as hypertension and osteoporosis, which are less morbid but may be treated more aggressively. We evaluated the prevalence of these comorbid conditions and compared testing, patient knowledge, and management in a national sample of patients with COPD. Methods: A survey was administered by telephone in 2006 to 1003 patients with COPD to evaluate the prevalence of comorbid conditions, ...

This research-in-progress presents a difficult healthcare problem, namely how to reduce the costs associated with chronic diseases. A comprehensive Web-based disease management system is proposed as a potential solution to help patients with chronic disease more effectively self-manage their disorders. A proposed research agenda is presented using a design science research approach. Theories capable of informing the design of the proposed solution are discussed including social learning theory and the theory of planned behavior. Design parameters are described and potential design ideas are presented.
