A cost-effective approach to the use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors in a Veterans Affairs Medical Center. (1/639)

In light of the tremendous expansion in the number of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors available to the clinician, the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee of the Denver Veterans Affairs Medical Center considered the advantages and disadvantages of fluoxethine, paroxetine, and sertraline, to determine which agent or agents would be carried on the formulary. The committed recommended sertraline as the preferred agent for the treatment of depression, panic disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorders. The purpose of this retrospective study was to assess the economic outcome of that decision. The study population consisted of patients at the medical center who were receiving selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors during January through March of 1994 and those were receiving these agents between September 1995 and January 1996. The expanded collection period in 1995-96 was due to a relatively new medical center policy to offer 90-day fills on medication to reduce costs. The extended collection period assured a 100% sample of patients receiving these agents. The 1994 fluoxetine to sertraline dosage equivalency ratio was 20 mg:55.6 mg, based on average daily doses of fluoxetine and sertraline of 32.7 and 90.9 mg, respectively. The cost to the medical center for an average daily dose of fluoxetine was $1.86; sertraline cost $1.22 per day. The 1996 fluoxetine to sertraline dosage equivalency ratio (20 mg:51.3 mg) had not changed significantly since 1994, indicating that the dose of 20 mg of fluoxetine remained very close to a 50-mg dose of sertraline. The average daily doses of fluoxetine and sertraline (34.9 mg and 89.7 mg, respectively) were not significantly different than the 1994 doses. Only 33 patients had been prescribed paroxetine (average daily dose, 32.4 mg). On the basis of these values, the average daily cost of fluoxetine to the medical center was $2.01, compared with $1.18 for sertraline and $1.24 for paroxetine. This $0.83 per patient per day drug acquisition cost difference between fluoxetine and sertraline results in a drug cost reduction of $302,674 per year.  (+info)

Postmarketing analysis of lovastatin use in the VA Northern California System of Clinics: a retrospective, computer-based study. (2/639)

Prevention of coronary heart disease is a major public health goal. The efficacy of lovastatin in lowering serum cholesterol has been proven in research studies, but its efficacy in practice is unclear. To evaluate our practice patterns and outcome in the Veterans Administration Northern California System of Clinics, we reviewed computer-based records of 203 unselected patients issued lovastatin; 193 (95%) were men, and the average patient age was 66 +/- 9 years. The average daily dose of lovastatin was 24 +/- 10 mg, and average duration of therapy was 22 +/- 11 months. Only 72 patients (35%) were instructed on the prescription to take their medication with the evening meal, and only 59 patients (29%) had seen a dietitian during the observed (1 to 3 years) treatment period. Nevertheless, among the 124 patients with pretreatment lipid data, total serum cholesterol decreased by 18% from 271 +/- 45 to 221 +/- 41 mg/dL (P < 0.001), and low density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol decreased by 23% from 185 +/- 43 to 143 +/- 37 (P < 0.001) mg/dL. High density lipoprotein-cholesterol and triglycerides were unchanged. Of the 168 patients with LDL-cholesterol data during the treatment period, only 74 (44%) achieved an LDL-cholesterol level of less than 130 mg/dL, the minimum goal for a population of older males with a high incidence of other cardiac risk factors. Safety surveillance with liver function testing was performed at least once in 192 patients (95%), but with creatine phosphokinase (CPK) testing in only 123 patients (61%) during the survey period. Enzyme elevations were minor, but occurred at least intermittently in approximately one quarter of patients. Only 5.7% of patients on lovastatin manifested an increase in transaminases on therapy. Due to incomplete baseline data, it is unclear how many patients had elevated CPK as a result of lovastatin. We conclude that: (1) lovastatin is effective in lowering total and LDL-cholesterol in practice, but is often used in dosage insufficient to lower LDL-cholesterol to goal levels; (2) patients are not being adequately educated on dosing schedules; (3) toxicity may be underestimated by infrequent and inconsistent surveillance; and (4) nonpharmacologic therapy is underutilized.  (+info)

Effect of home blood glucose monitoring on the management of patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus in the primary care setting. (3/639)

The purpose of the study was to determine whether blood glucose monitoring strips influence the management of patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes (NIDDM) in the primary care setting. The medical records of 115 patients with NIDDM taking a sulfonylurea drug (oral hypoglycemic agent) during the review period were randomly selected for review. Patients were divided into two groups: those who did not receive a prescription for blood glucose monitoring strips during 1995 and 1996 and those who did for the same 2 years. The main outcome measures were hemoglobin A1c, blood sugar, number of laboratory tests ordered, and number and type of treatment interventions. No statistically significant differences between groups were noted for any measured parameter. Glucose control was independent of number of strips dispensed. Home glucose monitoring strips did not affect the management of patients with NIDDM taking a sulfonylurea agent in the primary care setting.  (+info)

Physician and dietitian prescribing of a commercially available oral nutritional supplement. (4/639)

We examined whether a policy change transferring prescribing privileges for oral nutritional supplements to dietitians resulted in fewer inappropriate outpatient prescriptions. This was a pre/post study design using a retrospective review of physician and dietitian prescribing for ambulatory patients during two separate time periods: physician prescribing, October to December, 1994; dietitian prescribing, April to June, 1995. Inappropriate prescriptions during each period were defined as those given to patients with normal nutritional status or with a contraindication to a high-energy, electrolyte-containing solution. The study was conducted in outpatient clinics at a Veterans Affairs teaching hospital. We found that dietitians gave fewer prescriptions to outpatients who were not malnourished or to outpatients who had a contraindication to receiving a supplement (11% vs 34%; P = 0.002). In addition, dietitians more often completed relevant laboratory assessments (75% vs 43%; P = 0.001) and more frequently arranged follow-up dietetic evaluations (84% vs 30%, P < 0.001) for ambulatory patients receiving supplements. We conclude that transferring nutritional supplement prescribing privileges to dietitians led to fewer inappropriate outpatient prescriptions and to more comprehensive nutritional assessments, as measured by relevant laboratory use and dietetic follow-up. Physicians more frequently prescribed supplements to outpatients who were not malnourished or who had contraindications to receiving supplements. Our results suggest that physicians would benefit from assistance with and/or education concerning oral nutritional supplements.  (+info)

Improving access to disability benefits among homeless persons with mental illness: an agency-specific approach to services integration. (5/639)

OBJECTIVES: This study evaluated a joint initiative of the Social Security Administration (SSA) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to improve access to Social Security disability benefits among homeless veterans with mental illness. METHODS: Social Security personnel were colocated with VA clinical staff at 4 of the VA's Health Care for Homeless Veterans (HCHV) programs. Intake assessment data were merged with SSA administrative data to determine the proportion of veterans who filed applications and who received disability awards at the 4 SSA-VA Joint Outreach Initiative sites (n = 6709) and at 34 comparison HCHV sites (n = 27 722) during the 2 years before and after implementation of the program. RESULTS: During the 2 years after the initiative began, higher proportions of veterans applied for disability (18.9% vs 11.1%; P < .001) and were awarded benefits (11.4% vs 7.2%, P < .001) at SSA-VA Joint Initiative sites. CONCLUSION: A colocation approach to service system integration can improve access to disability entitlements among homeless persons with mental illness. Almost twice as many veterans were eligible for this entitlement as received it through a standard outreach program.  (+info)

Amputation prevention by vascular surgery and podiatry collaboration in high-risk diabetic and nondiabetic patients. The Operation Desert Foot experience. (6/639)

OBJECTIVE: To describe a unique multidisciplinary outpatient intervention for patients at high risk for lower-extremity amputation. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Patients with foot ulcers and considered to be high risk for lower-extremity amputation were referred to the High Risk Foot Clinic of Operation Desert Foot at the Carl T. Hayden Veterans Affairs' Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona, where patients received simultaneous vascular surgery and podiatric triage and treatment. Some 124 patients, consisting of 90 diabetic patients and 34 nondiabetic patients, were initially seen between 1 October 1991 and 30 September 1992 and followed for subsequent rate of lower-extremity amputation. RESULTS: In a mean follow-up period of 55 months (range 3-77), only 18 of 124 patients (15%) required amputation at the level of the thigh or leg. Of the 18 amputees, 17 (94%) had type 2 diabetes. The rate of avoiding limb loss was 86.5% after 3 years and 83% after 5 years or more. Furthermore, of the 15 amputees surviving longer than 2 months, only one (7%) had to undergo amputation of the contralateral limb over the following 12-65 months (mean 35 months). Compared with nondiabetic patients, patients with diabetes had a 7.68 odds ratio for amputation (95% CI 5.63-9.74) (P < 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: A specialized clinic for prevention of lower-extremity amputation is described. Initial and contralateral amputation rates appear to be far lower in this population than in previously published reports for similar populations. Relative to patients without diabetes, patients with diabetes were more than seven times as likely to have a lower-extremity amputation. These data suggest that aggressive collaboration of vascular surgery and podiatry can be effective in preventing lower-extremity amputation in the high-risk population.  (+info)

Dual use of VA and non-VA primary care. (7/639)

OBJECTIVE: To determine how frequently veterans use non-Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) sources of care in addition to primary care provided by the VA and to assess the association of this pattern of "dual use" to patient characteristics and satisfaction with VA care. DESIGN: Cross-sectional telephone survey of randomly selected patients from four VA medical centers. PARTICIPANTS: Of 1,240 eligible veterans, 830 (67%) participated in the survey. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Survey data were used to assess whether a veteran reported receiving primary care from both VA and non-VA sources of care, as well as the proportion of all primary care visits made to non-VA providers. Of 577 veterans who reported VA primary care visits, 159 (28%) also reported non-VA primary care visits. Among these dual users the mean proportion of non-VA primary care visits was 0.50. Multivariate analysis revealed that the odds of dual use were reduced for those without insurance (odds ratio [OR] 0.34; 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.18, 0.66) and with less education (OR 0.60; 95% CI 0.38, 0.92), while increased for those not satisfied with VA care (OR 2.40; 95% CI 1.40, 4.13). Among primary care dual users, the proportion of primary care visits made to non-VA providers was decreased for patients with heart disease ( p <.05) and patients with alcohol or drug dependence ( p <.05). CONCLUSIONS: Primary care dual use was common among these veterans. Those with more education, those with any type of insurance, and those not satisfied with VA care were more likely to be dual users. Non-VA care accounted for approximately half of dual users' total primary care visits.  (+info)

Safety and efficacy of metformin in a restricted formulary. (8/639)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy and safety of metformin (MET) in the Veterans' Administration Northern California Health Care System during the period from June 1995 through April 1996 when its use required approval by Endocrinology. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective review of patient charts and computerized pharmacy and laboratory records. Patients served as their own historical controls. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients receiving MET (n = 251) were identified from the pharmacy database. On-line laboratory data, including the intermediate outcome variable HbA1c, were retrieved by computer for the interval 4 months prior to the initial prescription to May 1996. Clinical data including weight and blood pressure were obtained from chart review. RESULTS: Of 228 patients whose charts were available for review, 29 reported side effects, and 12 discontinued use due to these side effects. No patients were identified with lactic acidosis. Both baseline and treatment data on HbA1c were available on 164 patients. Mean HbA1c (%) data (unpaired), expressed as mean +/- SE, were as follows: between 4 months pretreatment and 1 month pretreatment, 9.41 +/- 0.19 (n = 103 tests); between 1 month pretreatment and baseline, 9.41 +/- 0.19 (n = 110 tests); 3 months of treatment, 8.79 +/- 0.16 (n = 157 tests, P < 0.05); 6 months of treatment, 8.30 +/- 0.17 (n = 79 tests, P < 0.0001); 9 months of treatment, 8.72 +/- 0.24 (n = 70 tests, P < 0.05), compared to pretreatment values. Similar analysis of unpaired weight and blood pressure data in 152 patients did not reveal any reduction in these clinical parameters over this treatment period. Serum lipids were unchanged on treatment (by paired analysis), but the number of tests was limited. CONCLUSION: In this setting, MET provided sustained beneficial effects on glycemic control and was well tolerated. Any effects on weight, blood pressure, and serum lipids were not demonstrable in this analysis. We conclude that MET can substantially improve outcome of diabetes care.  (+info)

My experience working with Veterans Affairs Health Administration (VHA) has been very satisfying and unique. I feel that VHA offers the right balance and opportunity to both young and mid-career nephrologists. The aging veterans with a myriad of complex problems are always respectful and grateful for the care they receive at a VA Medical Center (see fact sheet about the kidney disease and veteran population) . The VHA offers the right combination of integrated primary care services, pharmacy, home monitoring services, and patient education support to provide optimal outpatient care. The major hurdles one encounters while managing patients in a VA hospital are limited resources for providing dialysis and transplant care. I see these limitations as a major opportunity to map a career path unlike that chosen by new nephrology graduates..

Multidrug-resistant (MDR) and carbapenem-resistant (CR) Gram-negative pathogens are becoming increasingly prevalent around the globe. Polymyxins and tigecycline are among the few antibiotics available to treat infections with these bacteria but little is known about the frequency of their use. We therefore aimed to estimate the parenteral use of these two drugs in Veterans Affairs medical centers (VAMCs) and to describe the pathogens associated with their administration. For this purpose we retrospectively analyzed barcode medication administration data of parenteral administrations of polymyxins and tigecycline in 127 acute-care VAMCs between October 2005 and September 2010. Overall, polymyxin and tigecycline use were relatively low at 0.8 days of therapy (DOT)/1000 patient days (PD) and 1.6 DOT/1000PD, respectively. Use varied widely across facilities, but increased overall during the study period. Eight facilities accounted for three-quarters of all polymyxin use. The same statistic for tigecycline

Background An apparent breach of standardized practice related to dental instrument reprocessing occurred at the John Cochran Veterans Administration Medical Center (VAMC) in St. Louis, MO. The facility mailed notification letters to 1,812 veterans treated at the dental clinic between February 2009 and March 2010 stating their internal quality inspections determined that some instrument processing steps for dental instruments were not in compliance with their standard policies, creating a low risk of exposure to hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus and HIV. In a video interview, Dr. Gina Michael, a spokesperson for the VAMC, said that dental instruments were sterilized but the VA standardized sequence of instrument processing was not followed. A article on July 1, 2010 reported the VA Under Secretary for Health Dr. Robert Petzel saying that the problem arose because workers prewashing dental equipment failed to use a detergent before the equipment was sterilized allowing for a ...
People suffering from Parkinson s disease often suffer from memory problems. Clinical studies at the University of Maryland are hoping to discover if a combination of memory training techniques and walking exercises can prevent this memory loss. The University of Maryland is searching for 90 volunteers for these clinical trials. Volunteers will be divided into three groups to compare the findings. The trials are expected to last about six months.. The clinical trials will take place at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and the Baltimore Veterans Administration Medical Center. The latter has treadmills designed for patients with mobility issues. All treadmill exercises will be done under supervision by physiologists to prevent falls. Memory exercise games will be done on computers at both locations. The clinical trials are being funded mostly through a Veterans Administration Merit Award.. Building on Stroke Studies.

Washington, D.C. 20420. Dear Mr. Missal,. Please find enclosed the Illinois Guardianship and Advocacy Commissions recent investigations into ongoing rights violations committed against Illinois veterans with disabilities at the Edward Hines Jr. and Jesse Brown Veterans Affairs Hospitals.. The Commission is particularly concerned with the forced administration of psychotropic medication, sometimes with VA police presence, without adequate cause to a veterans mental health needs and the issuance of criminal citations for a veteran exhibiting mental health related behavioral symptoms. As the Commission explains it, the VA Hospitals use the Illinois Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Code (405 ILCS 5/2-107) to involuntarily commit veterans, however, they fail to uphold the same Codes rights protections for these veterans.. The Guardianship and Advocacy Commission was created to protect the rights and promote the welfare of Illinois disabled citizens. I am confident you share my concerns ...

The investigative team reported that rates at which biopsy specimens were obtained differed among the sites where colonoscopy was performed.. The team obtained biopsy specimens from more patients undergoing colonoscopy in university-affiliated settings (87%) compared with Veterans Affairs Medical Centers (79%) or community sites (77%).. On multivariate analysis, biopsy specimens were more likely to be obtained in younger patients less than 50 years, women patients, in community settings and in Veterans Affairs Medical Centers setting.. The researchers also found that biopsy specimens were more likely to be obtained in patients seen in university-affiliated medical centers as opposed to community settings.. Dr Harewood concludes, Biopsy specimens are obtained in 80% of patients with diarrhea and normal colonoscopy findings to exclude microscopic colitis. Variation in biopsy practice exists among endoscopy site types and by gender and clear guidelines are needed for the endoscopic approach to ...

At this 120-bed facility, dedicated and caring staff, provide patient-centered rehabilitation and restorative services, as well as inpatient long-term care, palliative and hospice services. Along with traditional methods of care, the DC VAMC offers Veterans the opportunity to heal the mind, body, and spirit through its CLC Healing Arts Program. At the heart of this program lies an understanding of the aging process: moving beyond the deficit approach that stresses losses and decline to embrace an asset approach that rejoices in the strengths, achievements, and potential of later life-not in spite of aging, but because of aging.. In 2010 the National Center for Creative Aging and the CLC at the DC VAMC developed a strategic plan and kicked off a pilot program for the Healing Arts Program. This program showcases how the CLC aligns itself with the DC VAMCs overarching priorities and VHA directives for providing personalized, proactive, patient-driven care to its Veterans. In fall 2013, the ...
Ask yourself: If the Veterans Administration is so corrupt and mismanaged, as the conservative ideology, under which the seeds of are planted when they control, wants everyone to buy into as they obstruct the budgets and do extremely little after they charge same, then why does the Private sector, many problems within rarely heard about, adopt so many practices and advanced technologies developed within the VA, for free?! The VA, DoD, and in partnership with Universities and Colleges, not just Health Care are constantly in R&D and that developed that works is quickly moved into the private, for profit, sector, even as the VA is long under funded, decades, and especially during and after our wars that the few are sent into! ...

President Obama can do himself a big political favor this month by saying simply this: I will not privatize the VA hospitals.. Thats the bottom line for the current right-wing crusade mixing patriotic posturing with loathing of government in general and Obama specifically. We speak of allegations that a Phoenix hospital (and perhaps others) run by the Department of Veterans Affairs hid deadly delays for treatment by using secret waiting lists.. The theme is government cant do anything right. And if youre Rush Limbaugh, its also running death panels for veterans.. Theres nobody that has any real-world, private-sector experience running anything to do with health care or medical treatment or medical care, El Rushbo declared from happy orbit.. Actual veterans could not disagree more.. Were against privatizing the VA system, Joe Davis, national spokesman for Veterans of Foreign Wars, told me in no uncertain terms. To privatize the VA puts us on a waiting list with everyone else out in ...
April 16, 2014 - Recently, the Veteran community has been forced to fight back on a disturbing narrative: Veterans are dangerous, violent people that society should be wary of. It doesnt take much for some media outlets to push this agenda either. It seems all they need is one person, who happened to serve in the military at any time, to commit a heinous act, and the sensationalist headlines driving high ratings start pouring in.. Today, The Opinion Pages of the New York Times posted a story by Kathleen Belew that claims the return of [Veterans] from combat appears to correlate more closely with Klan membership than any other historical factor, and linked the murder of three innocent people in Kansas by one man to a generation of Vietnam Veterans.. Even though she admits the number of Vietnam [Veterans] in that movement was small and a vast majority of veterans are neither violent nor mentally ill she continues disparaging Veterans in general. Ms. Belew interprets information from a ...
The Chief Patient Care Services Officer charged a National Task Group to develop comprehensive services for Veterans with ALS based on national best practices. VA healthcare requires timely provision of patient-centric care delivered with support to caregivers articulated through standardized recommendations. Standardization assures that each Veteran is offered consistent support and treatment options to help manage the disease, including the impairments, complications, and functional problems that result from ALS. The number of Veterans who will receive this care and benefits can be estimated based on multiple factors. Over the last four fiscal years, 3,581 Veterans with a diagnosis of ALS were treated in the VA systems. The number of new cases diagnosed in Veterans can be estimated based on the literature reviewed in the IOM report, which supports an annual incidence of 4.5 cases per 100,000, which would result in an estimated annual incidence of 1,055 Veterans with new onset ALS and a ...

Concerned that the most talked-about injury of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars is being overlooked, the Hospital for Special Care in New Britain has started offering free screenings to veterans for symptoms of mild traumatic brain injury. The hospital has begun sending out thousands of mailings to veterans' groups, physicians, colleges and churches, encouraging service members who were exposed to roadside blasts or other head trauma to get screened for TBI. The hospital screenings are offered by phone or over the Internet and direct veterans who report symptoms of TBI to seek further evaluation at the Veterans Administration hospital in West Haven.

There is no national health service, as such, in the United States. Most physicians in the country have traditionally been in some form of private practice, whether seeing patients in their own offices, clinics, medical centers, or another type of facility and regardless of the patients income. Doctors are usually compensated by such state and federally supported agencies as Medicaid (for treating the poor) and Medicare (for treating the elderly); not all doctors, however accept poor patients. There are also some state-supported clinics and hospitals where the poor and elderly may receive free or low-cost treatment, and some doctors devote a small percentage of their time to treatment of the indigent. Veterans may receive free treatment at Veterans Administration hospitals, and the federal government through its Indian Health Service provides medical services to American Indians and Alaskan natives, sometimes using trained auxiliaries for first-contact care.. In the rural United States ...
A clinical trial evaluating the efficacy of high-dose intravenous vitamin C (HDIVC) to treat COVID-19 and reduce the need for intensive care was co-developed by a Massey researcher and is underway at the Hunter Holmes Mcguire Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the McGuire Research Institute..

This clinical information on the assessment of suicide is what makes this JAMA Psychiatry article interesting. In this article the authors attempt to determine predictors of suicide by soldiers in the year following psychiatric hospitalization within the Veterans Administration hospital system over a 6 year period. That was a total of 40,820 hospitalizations or 0.9% of the total Army personnel in any 12 month period. During that time there were a total of 68 deaths by suicide. That is number is 12% of all US Army suicides. The authors consider a long list of potential risk factors that are largely demographic in nature to determine concentration of risk of suicide. That list includes a law enforcement data base that clinicians do not have access to. Their overall goal was to determine of it was practical identify high risk patients for post hospitalization intervention and whether that might be a cost effective way to prevent suicide. They were able to identify the highest risk group - the 5% ...
This paper contributes to the literature on the relationship between human capital and organizational performance. We use detailed longitudinal monthly data on nursing units in the Veterans Administration hospital system to identify how the human capital (general, hospital-specific and unit or team-specific) of the nursing team on the unit affects patients outcomes. Since we use monthly, not annual, data, we are able to avoid the omitted variable bias and endogeneity bias that could result when annual data are used. Nurse staffing levels, general human capital, and unit-specific human capital have positive and significant effects on patient outcomes while the use of contract nurses, who have less specific capital than regular staff nurses, negatively impacts patient outcomes. Policies that would increase the specific human capital of the nursing staff are found to be cost-effective. ...
