Results: Seropositivity (43%), usually unknown (72% of seropositives), was predicted by injection drug use, alcohol use, older age, and risky sexual behavior. No regular source of care, risky sexual behavior, less case management, and greater age predicted not knowing ones positive status. Health insurance, younger age, alcohol use, perceived bad health and more medical conditions predicted emergency room (ER) use; ER use was less likely among seropositives. Hospitalizations were predicted by more medical conditions and greater percentage of life homeless and were less frequent among African Americans and males. Ambulatory visits were predicted by a regular source of care, case management, more education and perceived bad health; they were less likely among seropositives ...
This study found that older adults receiving a statin after discharge from hospital with IHD realized significant mortality benefits; however, reductions in re-hospitalizations, physician visits, or coronary revascularizations were not demonstrated over the follow-up period of approximately two years.. Thirty-eight percent (38%) of older adults discharged from hospital received statins in our study; this may seem inconsistent with current North American guidelines which suggest that most patients at high-risk for CVD disease should receive treatment with these medications regardless of age [46, 47]. The low utilization of statins in our population may be a reflection of the study period (1997-2001), with other studies reporting utilization of statins in older adults with established disease over this time period describing similar prescribing rates [48-51].. This study demonstrated that older adults with increased markers for disease severity were less likely to be dispensed statins after ...

Over the past four decades, the Indonesian health care system has greatly expanded and the health of Indonesian people has improved although the rich-poor gap in health status and service access remains an issue. The government has been trying to address these gaps and intensify efforts to improve the health of the poor following the economic crisis in 1998. This paper examines trends and levels in socio-economic inequity of health and identifies critical factors constraining efforts to improve the health of the poor. Quantitative data were taken from the Indonesian Demographic Health Surveys and the National Socio-Economic Surveys, and qualitative data were obtained from interviews with individuals and groups representing relevant ...
KIWAYUU, Coastal Kenya - The story of mother-of-six Aisha Tiro Bahero, 30, is not only one of resilience and determination, but also of how access to maternal and child health services is critical in saving womens lives and empowering them to lead productive and healthy lives.. Aisha lives in Kiwayuu, a small island located in the eastern part of the Lamu Archipelago in Coastal Kenya. The only health facility on the island was established two years ago by the Lamu County Government, and it serves 600 inhabitants. Prior to its inception, patients, including expectant mothers would travel to Lamu Island, a seven-hour trip by dhow or an hours trip by motorboat.. "I got married when I was barely 18 years old and I delivered my first child at home," says Aisha. Her three subsequent deliveries also took place at home.. "As a marginalized community, we were ignorant about the importance of ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! Controlling the cost of chronic diseases remains one of the vexing problems of developed and developing nations alike. Taiwan, faced with rapidly escalating healthcare costs associated with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) services utilization, imposed an outpatient dialysis global budget (ODBG) on outpatient dialysis care. This study, using a before and after study design with a comparison group, assessed the impact of this policy innovation on outpatient, inpatient and emergency room utilization. Using a difference in difference (DID) strategy and the generalized estimating equation (GEE) approach, this study found providers responded to these changes through cost reduction and revenue enhancement strategies. This study extends our understanding of provider responses to changes in reimbursement policies that target one segment of the continuum of ...
Equity in access to health care services is a central policy goal in most publicly funded health care systems. Access is a complex concept that can be understood as a fit between the demand for health care services among the population and the supply of care by providers. To be accessible, health care services need to be affordable, contain the appropriate forms of treatment in relation to medical needs and be physically situated so that patients can get to them [1, 2]. An important component of access is geographical accessibility, which can be understood as the distance, or travel time, between patients and health ...

Take a patient who has diabetes. If a health plan implements a value-based insurance design (VBID), the employers health plan will cover certain diabetes drugs for a reduced copayment. As a result of that reduced copayment, the patient continues to to use his diabetes drug, and therefore the condition is managed better. The employer and health plan see lower overall health care costs because of reduced complications.. Avalere Health, a consulting company, taking a page from the private insurer playbook, says that Medicare could immediately modernize its benefit structure by incorporating VBID because VBID tailors cost-sharing so that the beneficiary pays less for a needed medication or therapy, making him more likely to use it. The employer and ...

Individuals living in rural mountain areas tend to use health services less to manage discomfort or illness. This study aims to identify the variables that best explain the health service utilization of a sample of the rural population in the Dabie Mountains in China. To obtain information about health service utilization, a cross-sectional household survey was conducted using face-to-face interviews among the residents of a poor town in the Dabie Mountains. A total of 1,003 residents aged 15 or more, who had felt unwell in the last two weeks before the survey, were included in the analysis. The χ2 test and binary logistic regression were used to analyze the factors influencing health service utilization. A total of 51.2% of those surveyed had not used health services when they felt unwell, ...
Our second and third hypotheses related to predictors for 12-month mental health service utilisation in patients with depressive symptoms. We hypothesised that a positive intention to seek help from a healthcare professional and severity of depression could predict subsequent 12-month mental health service use. From our findings, however, a positive intention to seek help from a mental health professional and a higher severity of depression had no effect on subsequent mental health service use. Using Ajzens theory of planned behaviour,6 an individuals behaviour may be influenced by their own personal beliefs (patients own attitudes), subjective norms (the social norms) and control beliefs (perceived practical barriers).6 ,21 In our study population, it appears that the patients intentions regarding ...
Vietnamese patients are disproportionately represented in type 2 diabetes mellitus statistics and also incur high rates of diabetes complications. This situation is compounded by limited access to health care. The aim of this project was to gain a deeper understanding of the difficulties Vietnamese patients experience when accessing services and managing their type 2 diabetes mellitus, and to identify factors that are important in promoting health service use. Three focus groups with 15 Vietnamese participants with type 2 diabetes mellitus, 60 to |70 years of age, were conducted in Vietnamese. Open-ended questions were used and focussed on experiences of living with diabetes and access to healthcare services in the Inner Northwest Melbourne region. Audio recordings were transcribed and then translated into ...

INTRODUCTION. The reasons that lead people to visit a doctor come from a complex interaction of different factors such as demographic, socioeconomic, and psychological aspects, morbidity profiles, and health services availability.2,5 The effect and relative importance of each factor are affected by cultural background, health policies and health care system available.. As lower socioeconomic groups have a higher burden of disease and therefore need more health services, equity is at the heart of the entire health care issue. In Brazil, a universal decentralized and free of charge health care system was created, the Unified Health System ...
Background: Knowledge of utilization of health services and asso- ciated factors is important in planning and delivery of interventions to improve health services coverage. This knowledge is however limited in many developing countries. We determined the preva- lence and factors associated with health services utilization in a rural area of Kenya. Our findings inform the local health management in development of appropriately targeted interventions. Methods: Design: Cluster sample survey. Population: Residents of Kaloleni sub-County in Kenya. Participants/respondents: Household key informants. Outcomes: (i) History of illness for household members and (ii) health services utilization in the preceding month, (iii) factors associated with ...
Although the community health service system is now established in China, the utilisation of the community health service institutions is low due to the lack of a gate-keeping role of the primary health service providers and referrals among the three-tiered health service institutions. In addition to this, patients who can afford to pay, often seek best services in big hospitals to guarantee the quality of care. Thus, the need of guiding the patients to the community health services and increasing the utilisation of the community health service institutions is becoming an urgent problem, which hinders the future development of community health services. This study focuses on the question of ...

Objectives - Diabetes frequently coexists with other conditions, resulting in poorer diabetes self-management and quality of life, higher risk for diabetes-related complications and higher health service use compared to those with diabetes only. Few Canadian studies have undertaken a comprehensive, population-level analysis of comorbidity and health service utilization by older adults with diabetes. This study examined comorbidity and its association with a broad range of health services in a cohort of community-dwelling older adults with diabetes in Ontario, Canada.. Methods - We linked multiple administrative databases to create a cohort of 448,736 older adults with diabetes, described their comorbidities and obtained their 1-year use of health services (physician visits, emergency department visits, inpatient hospital admissions, home ...
This national survey was conducted to compare health services utilization and expenditures in 1970 with results of similar studies done in 1953, 1958, and 1964. In the survey, respondents from 3,763 families plus additional older individuals -- a total of 11,619 persons -- were interviewed in 1971. One or more persons in each family provided information regarding use of health services, the cost of such services, and how these costs were met for the calendar year 1970. Information was also collected on perceptions of illness and health, attitudes and opinions about medical care in the United States, and health beliefs. An attempt was made to verify all hospital admissions, physician visits, and insurance reports and claims. These verifications had two purposes: first, to determine if the ...
Downloadable (with restrictions)! We document the impact of the AIDS crisis on non-AIDS related health services in fourteen sub-Saharan African countries. Using multiple waves of Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) for each country, we examine antenatal care, birth deliveries, and rates of immunization for children born between 1988 and 2005. We find deterioration in nearly all of these dimensions of health care over this period. The most recent DHS survey for each country collected data on HIV prevalence, which allows us to examine the association between HIV burden and health care. We find that erosion of health services is highly correlated with increases in AIDS prevalence. Regions of countries that ...

Background: The phenomenon of inequitable healthcare utilization in rural China interests policymakers and researchers; however, the inequity has not been actually measured to present the magnitude and trend using nationally representative data. Methods: Based on the National Health Service Survey (NHSS) in 1993, 1998, 2003, and 2008, the Probit model with the probability of outpatient visit and the probability of inpatient visit as the dependent variables is applied to estimate need-predicted healthcare utilization. Furthermore, need-standardized healthcare utilization is assessed through indirect standardization method. Concentration index is measured to reflect income-related inequity of healthcare ...

It also examined household members utilization of various types of health providers. Being insured was significantly associated with higher odds of utilizing both outpatient and inpatient health services. The finding is consistent with other studies on utilization in other parts of Ghana and Africa [19, 20]. A study in Accra, Ghanas capital city, showed that registered clients of the NHIS were significantly more likely to receive prescriptions, visit clinics, and use formal health facilities when in need [21]. Another study among households in the Mfantseman municipality (central region) in Ghana reported that insured members were more likely to utilize outpatient ...

This study has determined that Chinese government subsidies on healthcare have been equitably distributed in outpatient services but "not yet" to the inpatient services. All GHS KIs for inpatient services were positive in both urban and rural areas in 2007. This indicates that the government health subsidies were concentrated on the rich relative to their ATPs. On the other hand, GHS KIs for outpatient services were all negative in 2007, suggesting the GHS was pro-poor after adjusting for the ATP. Additionally, it has been demonstrated that the equity of GHS has improved from 2002 to 2007 in outpatient services in rural areas but not in outpatient services in urban areas nor all inpatient services in both rural and urban areas. Equity in GHS on inpatients services was not ...

Abstract This study examined factors associated with the use of the Health Care for the Homeless Program and other health care services by homeless adults. A total of 941 homeless adults were identified in 52 soup kitchens in U.S. communities. Descriptive statistics and logistic regression models were applied. Among homeless adults, having dental problems was the most robust factor associated with their use of Health Care for the Homeless Program services (odds ratio [OR] = 2.50, 95 percent confidence interval [CI] = 1.44-4.32). Among homeless adults who did not visit Health Care for the Homeless Program services during last six months, the number of emergency room visits was the most ...

The patterns of health service use by rural and remote residents are poorly understood and under-represented in national surveys. This paper examines professional and non-professional service use for mental health problems in rural and remote communities in Australia. A stratified random sample of adults was drawn from non-metropolitan regions of New South Wales, Australia as part of a longitudinal population-based cohort. One-quarter (27.7%) of the respondents were from remote or very remote regions. The socio-demographic, health status and service utilization (professional and non-professional) characteristics of 2150 community dwelling residents are described. Hierarchical logistic regressions were used to identify cross-sectional associations between socio-demographic, health status and professional and non-professional health service ...

At 39.1% KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) has the highest antenatal clinic prevalence of any South African province,1 which has enormous implications in terms of a high burden for health services. We should be prepared for increases in the demand for health care for a decade or more even once HIV prevalence rates decline, since many people are in the earlier stages of infection and asymptomatic.. Several studies have looked at the burden of HIV on health services all over sub-Saharan Africa2-5 and have elicited one particularly startling insight: a steep rise in the HIV/AIDS burden on health care facilities in the late 1980s, with apparent stabilisation of burden in later years. This finding contrasts with epidemiological trends, which predict that the burden should have increased ...

Introduction: There has been an on-going, active discussion about the need to re-orient health services to contribute more effectively to population health. This was addressed as one of the 2003 National Swedish public health policy goals, which demand health promotion and disease prevention be an integral part of the health care system and an important component of all care and treatment. Health care professionals are thus expected to play a key role in implementing the goal of "a more health-promoting health service". Their approach to, and knowledge about, health promotion will ...
Background Many young people, particularly those who are marginalised and most at risk for HIV and reproductive health-related problems, cannot or will not seek traditional facility-based health services. Policies and programs are being implemented to provide them with these health services in the community. We sought to systematically review the effectiveness of such community-based HIV and reproductive health service policies and programs delivered via outreach on increasing health service utilisation among adolescents and young adults (ie, among 10-24 year olds).. ...
Although health inequalities have most often been documented in wealthy countries, recent studies have made it evident that inequality in health and health care is also a prominent problem in developing countries [28, 34-36]. In particular, analysis of the effect of health care is especially important in those countries, where resource limitations require that the effective use of all health interventions be made.. The results of the present study show the existence of significant socioeconomic inequalities in health services utilization. The rate of outpatient services utilization is higher among individuals who have private health insurance and higher level of education. ...
The impacts of globalisation and rural restructuring on health service delivery in rural Australia have been significant. In the present paper, it is argued that declining health service access represents a failure of policy. Rural communities across the world are in a state of flux, and Australia is no different: rural communities are ageing at faster rates than urban communities and young people are out-migrating in large numbers. During the past 5 years, rural Australia has also experienced a severe and widespread drought that has exacerbated rural poverty, and impacted on the health and well-being of rural Australians. Australian governments have responded to globalising forces by introducing neoliberal policy initiatives favouring market solutions and championing the need for self-reliance among citizens. The result for rural Australia has been a withdrawal of services at a time of ...
Campus: Kapiolani Community College. Kapiʻolani Community College does not provide on campus health services. Students from KCC may use the services at University Health Services Mānoa (UHSM) with a surcharge (currently $25) on the first visit, and another $25 on the second visit of each semester, after which they are eligible to the same services at the same charges as regular UH Mānoa students. KCC is unable, at this time, to finance the high operating and maintenance costs of an on site health clinic. Also, because KCC is a commuter campus, there is little demand for on site services..

Result: The results showed that 38.5 percent (154) of the women received antenatal care, 32.3 percent (129) of the women received delivery services while 48.3 percent (193) received postnatal care services. In the logistic regression model, reduced income level was associated with decreased use of antenatal care (OR=0.1, P,0.05). In assisted delivery, increased distance to the health facility was associated with reduced use (OR=0.1, P ,0.05). In postnatal care, reduced education level of the respondent was found to be associated to decreased use of postnatal services (OR=0.51, P,0.05). Increased maternal age was associated with increased utilization of maternal health services (OR=2.1, P,0.05). On the other hand, decision making roles by the ...

Data from the 1984 National Health Interview Surveys Supplement on Aging are used to examine the relationship between health status & health care use among rural elderly. Measures of health status include self-perceived health, functional limitations, & limitations in activities of daily living; health service use is measured by number of doctors office visits & hospital stays. Logistic regression reveals that rural residence does not have a significant effect on either health status or service use, once various demographic characteristics are controlled, except for lower use of doctors by nonmetropolitan & farm residents. This discrepancy may be due to differences in types of illness, health beliefs, ...

There is evidence that the economic crisis in Greece has substantially affected patients and health care services, with chronic patients forming a particularly vulnerable group. The aim of this study was to investigate whether and in what way the current economic environment has affected patients with selected chronic conditions. A cross sectional study was carried out with a sample size of 1200 patients suffering from hypertension, diabetes and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Following a large family income decrease (35.4%) in the last 3 years, chronic patients reported decreased spending for various expenditure categories in order to maintain their ability to finance their health care needs. Among the disease groups studied, statistically significant differences were found for self-rated heath (SRH), out-of pocket ...

INTRODUCTION: Although traditional patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs) are effective for patients with complex needs, it is unclear whether homeless-tailored PCMHs work better for homeless veterans. We examined the impact of enrollment in a Veterans Health Administration (VHA) homeless-tailored PCMH on health services use, cost, and satisfaction compared with enrollment in a traditional, nontailored PCMH. METHODS: We conducted a prospective, multicenter, quasi-experimental, single-blinded study at 2 VHA medical centers to assess health services use, cost, and satisfaction during 12 months among 2 groups of homeless veterans: 1) veterans receiving VHA homeless-tailored primary care (Homeless-Patient Aligned Care Team [H-PACT]) and 2) veterans receiving traditional primary ...

Risk attitudes influence decisions made under uncertainty. This paper investigates the association of risk attitudes with the utilization of preventive and general healthcare services, work absence and resulting costs to explore their contribution to the heterogeneity in utilization. Data of 1823 individuals (56.5 ± 9.5 years), participating in the German KORA FF4 population-based cohort study (2013/2014) were analyzed. Individuals general and health risk attitude were measured as willingness to take risk (WTTR) on 11-point scales. Utilization of preventive and medical services and work absence was assessed and annual costs were calculated from a societal perspective. Generalized linear models with log-link function (logistic, negative-binomial and gamma regression) adjusted for age, sex, and height were used to analyze the association of WTTR with the utilizations and ...

December 31, 2009. For the past 19 years, Frank Santos, CFO of the privately held, seven-property Rosen Hotels and Resorts in Orlando, Florida, has prided himself on delivering high-quality health care to his employees in a unique and low-cost way.In 1991 the company set up a primary-care clinic in one of its hotels, allowing employees to get basic health-care services during their working hours. By cutting out other primary-care options and contracting directly with hospitals and specialists for additional services, Santos says, the company has been able to offer a full health-care package to its 5,000 or so employees and their families and save at least $10 million a year compared with national ...

Archie Cochrane is best known for his influential book, Effectiveness and Efficiency: Random Reflections on Health Services published in 1972. The principles he set out in it so clearly were straightforward: he suggested that, because resources would always be limited, they should be used to provide equitably those forms of health care which had been shown in properly designed evaluations to be effective. In particular, he stressed the importance of using evidence from randomised controlled trials (RCTs) because these were likely to provide much more reliable information than other sources of evidence. Cochranes simple propositions were soon widely recognised as seminally important - by lay people as well as by health professionals. In 1979 he wrote, "It is surely a great criticism of our profession that we have not organised a critical summary, by specialty ...
This national survey was conducted to compare health services utilization and expenditures in 1970 with results of similar studies done in 1953, 1958, and 1964. In the survey, respondents from 3,763 families plus additional older individuals -- a total of 11,619 persons -- were interviewed in 1971. One or more persons in each family provided information regarding use of health services, the cost of such services, and how these costs were met for the calendar year 1970. Information was also collected on perceptions of illness and health, attitudes and opinions about medical care in the United States, and health beliefs. An attempt was made to verify all hospital admissions, physician visits, and insurance reports and claims. These verifications had two purposes: first, to determine if the ...
