Risk-adjusted capitation based on the Diagnostic Cost Group Model: an empirical evaluation with health survey information. (1/1951)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the predictive accuracy of the Diagnostic Cost Group (DCG) model using health survey information. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: Longitudinal data collected for a sample of members of a Dutch sickness fund. In the Netherlands the sickness funds provide compulsory health insurance coverage for the 60 percent of the population in the lowest income brackets. STUDY DESIGN: A demographic model and DCG capitation models are estimated by means of ordinary least squares, with an individual's annual healthcare expenditures in 1994 as the dependent variable. For subgroups based on health survey information, costs predicted by the models are compared with actual costs. Using stepwise regression procedures a subset of relevant survey variables that could improve the predictive accuracy of the three-year DCG model was identified. Capitation models were extended with these variables. DATA COLLECTION/EXTRACTION METHODS: For the empirical analysis, panel data of sickness fund members were used that contained demographic information, annual healthcare expenditures, and diagnostic information from hospitalizations for each member. In 1993, a mailed health survey was conducted among a random sample of 15,000 persons in the panel data set, with a 70 percent response rate. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: The predictive accuracy of the demographic model improves when it is extended with diagnostic information from prior hospitalizations (DCGs). A subset of survey variables further improves the predictive accuracy of the DCG capitation models. The predictable profits and losses based on survey information for the DCG models are smaller than for the demographic model. Most persons with predictable losses based on health survey information were not hospitalized in the preceding year. CONCLUSIONS: The use of diagnostic information from prior hospitalizations is a promising option for improving the demographic capitation payment formula. This study suggests that diagnostic information from outpatient utilization is complementary to DCGs in predicting future costs.  (+info)

Disease eradication and health systems development. (2/1951)

This article provides a framework for the design of future eradication programmes so that the greatest benefit accrues to health systems development from the implementation of such programmes. The framework focuses on weak and fragile health systems and assumes that eradication leads to the cessation of the intervention required to eradicate the disease. Five major components of health systems are identified and key elements which are of particular relevance to eradication initiatives are defined. The dearth of documentation which can provide "lessons learned" in this area is illustrated with a brief review of the literature. Opportunities and threats, which can be addressed during the design of eradication programmes, are described and a number of recommendations are outlined. It is emphasized that this framework pertains to eradication programmes but may be useful in attempts to coordinate vertical and horizontal disease control activities for maximum mutual benefits.  (+info)

Perspectives from the dracunculiasis eradication programme. (3/1951)

After a slow beginning in association with the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade (1981-1990), the global Dracunculiasis Eradication Programme has reduced the incidence of dracunculiasis by nearly 97%, from an estimated 3.2 million cases in 1986 to less than 100,000 cases in 1997. Over half of the remaining cases are in Sudan. In addition, the programme has already produced many indirect benefits such as improved agricultural production and school attendance, extensive provision of clean drinking-water, mobilization of endemic communities, and improved care of infants. Most workers in the campaign have other responsibilities in their communities or ministries of health besides dracunculiasis eradication.  (+info)

Candidate parasitic diseases. (4/1951)

This paper discusses five parasitic diseases: American trypanosomiasis (Chagas disease), dracunculiasis, lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciasis and schistosomiasis. The available technology and health infrastructures in developing countries permit the eradication of dracunculiasis and the elimination of lymphatic filariasis due to Wuchereria bancrofti. Blindness due to onchocerciasis and transmission of this disease will be prevented in eleven West African countries; transmission of Chagas disease will be interrupted. A well-coordinated international effort is required to ensure that scarce resources are not wasted, efforts are not duplicated, and planned national programmes are well supported.  (+info)

A national program for control of acute respiratory tract infections: the Philippine experience. (5/1951)

Maturing programs on child immunization and diarrheal diseases, a community-based research project, and a rational drug-use program facilitated the launching in 1989 of a nationwide Philippine Control of Acute Respiratory Infections program (Phil-CARI). From 1990 to 1991 the Phil-CARI expanded rapidly, training >80% of its middle managers and frontline health care providers on the case-management protocols of the World Health Organization for acute respiratory infection. Multiple donors and good collaboration with various societies and medical schools assisted the program. However, by 1992, there were difficulties in maintaining training quality, follow-up, and supervision. Donor assistance dwindled and the health care delivery system decentralized. Government procurement systems were unable to meet the logistics demands of the program. The monitoring and evaluation system was inadequate to measure impact. The Phil-CARI provides lessons in searching for more sustainable approaches and systems to meet the various demands of a nationwide ARI control program and to create the desired impact.  (+info)

The cost of obesity in Canada. (6/1951)

BACKGROUND: Almost one-third of adult Canadians are at increased risk of disability, disease and premature death because of being obese. In order to allocate limited health care resources rationally, it is necessary to elucidate the economic burden of obesity. OBJECTIVE: To estimate the direct costs related to the treatment of and research into obesity in Canada in 1997. METHODS: The prevalence of obesity (body mass index of 27 or greater) in Canada was determined using data from the National Population Health Survey, 1994-1995. Ten comorbidities of obesity were identified from the medical literature. A population attributable fraction (PAF) was calculated for each comorbidity with data from large cohort studies to determine the extent to which each comorbidity and its management costs were attributable to obesity. The direct cost of each comorbidity was determined using data from the Canadian Institute of Health Information (for direct expenditure categories) and from Health Canada (for the proportion of expenditure category attributable to the comorbidity). This prevalence-based approach identified the direct costs of hospital care, physician services, services of other health professionals, drugs, other health care and health research. For each comorbidity, the cost attributable to obesity was determined by multiplying the PAF by the total direct cost of the comorbidity. The overall impact of obesity was estimated as the sum of the PAF-weighted costs of treating the comorbidities. A sensitivity analysis was completed on both the estimated costs and the PAFs. RESULTS: The total direct cost of obesity in Canada in 1997 was estimated to be over $1.8 billion. This corresponded to 2.4% of the total health care expenditures for all diseases in Canada in 1997. The sensitivity analysis revealed that the total cost could be as high as $3.5 billion or as low as $829.4 million; this corresponded to 4.6% and 1.1% respectively of the total health care expenditures in 1997. When the contributions of the comorbidities to the total cost were considered, the 3 largest contributors were hypertension ($656.6 million), type 2 diabetes mellitus ($423.2 million) and coronary artery disease ($346.0 million). INTERPRETATION: A considerable proportion of health care dollars is devoted to the treatment and management of obesity-related comorbidities in Canada. Further research into the therapeutic benefits and cost-effectiveness of management strategies for obesity is required. It is anticipated that the prevention and treatment of obesity will have major positive effects on the overall cost of health care.  (+info)

Is health insurance in Greece in need of reform? (7/1951)

This paper aims to assess the relationship between insurance contributions and health benefits in Greece by using information from sickness funds' accounts. The paper argues that the fragmentation of social health insurance, and the particular ways in which sickness funds' financial services are organized, are a major source of inequity and are grossly inefficient. The survival of these systems in the 1990s cannot be explained except on grounds of inertia and corporate resistance.  (+info)

Health insurance in developing countries: lessons from experience. (8/1951)

Many developing countries are currently considering the possibility of introducing compulsory health insurance schemes. One reason is to attract more resources to the health sector. If those who, together with their employers, can pay for their health services and are made to do so by insurance, the limited tax funds can be concentrated on providing services for fewer people and thus improve coverage and raise standards. A second reason is dissatisfaction with existing services in which staff motivation is poor, resources are not used to best advantage and patients are not treated with sufficient courtesy and respect. This article describes the historical experience of the developed countries in introducing and steadily expanding the coverage of health insurance, sets out the consensus which has developed about health insurance (at least in Western European countries) and describes the different forms which health insurance can take. The aim is to bring out the advantages and disadvantages of different approaches from this experience, to set out the options for developing countries and to give warnings about the dangers of some approaches.  (+info)

The Lund Report (Portland, Ore.), Jan. 26, 2016. The Affordable Care Act was expected to revolutionize healthcare in the US. But is access to healthcare easier? Have costs gone up or down? A Portland City Club forum puts tough questions to Oregon Health & Science University professors.. Healthcare is a $3 trillion industry in the U.S. with one out of every $5 passing through the hands of someone working in the industry, Dr. Samuel Metz of Physicians for a National Health Program, told a City Club audience Monday night.. And, everyone agreed costs are not going down. The best forecast Ive seen shows healthcare (costs) will rise faster than GDP by about one percent, a year said John McConnell, an economist who heads OHSUs Center for Health Systems Effectiveness.. New, high-cost drugs put additional cost pressure on the system, and the stock market sees more money to be made in high-tech solutions that dont give what McConnell called a return on health..

The United States spends more than twice as much on health care as the average of other developed nations, all of which boast universal coverage. Yet over 39 million Americans have no health insurance whatsoever, and most others are underinsured, in the sense that they lack adequate coverage for all contingencies (e.g., long-term care and prescription drug costs).. Why is the U. S. so different? The short answer is that we alone treat health care as a commodity distributed according to the ability to pay, rather than as a social service to be distributed according to medical need. In our market-driven system, investor-owned firms compete not so much by increasing quality or lowering costs, but by avoiding unprofitable patients and shifting costs back to patients or to other payers. This creates the paradox of a health care system based on avoiding the sick. It generates huge administrative costs, which, along with profits, divert resources from clinical care to the demands of business. In ...

Republic Act No. 9502, otherwise known as the Universally Accessible Cheaper and Quality Medicines Act of 2008, prohibits the government from procuring drugs and medicines which are not included in the PNDF. Meanwhile, Executive Order No. 49, s. 1993 requires PNDF listing before drug purchases by the government can be made. For the purchase of drugs which are not PNDF-listed, the approval of, among others, the Formulary Executive Committee (FEC) is required. And since government purchase of non-PNDF listed drugs is an exemption rather than the rule, FEC approval requires, among others: (1) that the medicines safety and efficacy are duly established; and (2) that the medicine will be used for a national health program or for a current or potential urgent health situation. Based on FEC deliberations made available to the Panel, Dengvaxia vaccine safety for dengue virus serotype 2 - which is the common type of dengue in the Philippines - was low.

In 2013, Qatar introduced a national health insurance scheme, called Seha. Stage 1 of the scheme covered women aged 12 years and older for health care and maternity services. Stage 2 was launched in 2014, and covered all Qatari nationals for a much broader set of services. In the future, Stages 3 and 4 will extend coverage to all non-Qatari residents within the country as well as visitors.. The National Health Insurance Company (NHIC) manages Seha, with a Third-Party Administrator (TPA) contracted to manage provider claims. The Supreme Council of Health (SCH) acts as the schemes overall regulator, and is responsible for activities such as specifying coverage and approving pricing.. A range of steps was taken to prepare for Sehas launch. SCH mandated clinical coding using ICD-10-AM, and hospitals recruited and/or trained clinical coders to use this system. The Australian Refined Diagnosis Related Groups (AR-DRGs) tool was adopted, and public sector hospitals embarked on the clinical costing ...

Responsiveness of health care services in low and middle income countries has been given little attention. Despite being introduced over a decade ago in many developing countries, national health insurance schemes have yet to be evaluated in terms of responsiveness of health care services. Although this responsiveness has been evaluated in many developed countries, it has rarely been done in developing countries. The concept of responsiveness is multi-dimensional and can be measured across various domains including prompt attention, dignity, communication, autonomy, choice of provider, quality of facilities, confidentiality and access to family support. This study examines the insured users perspectives of their health care services responsiveness. This retrospective, cross-sectional survey took place between October 2010 and March 2011. The study used a modified out-patient questionnaire from a responsiveness survey designed by the World Health Organization (WHO). Seven hundred and ninety six (796)
Discussion In early 2012 the Chhattisgarh state government included packages under RSBY (Rastriya Swasthya Bima Yojana) and MSBY (Mukhyamantri Swasthya Bima Yojana) in various national health programmes, where hospitalisation is necessary. Leveraging this opportunity, the state TB Control Programme in Chhattisgarh facilitated Revised National Tuberculosis Programme (RNTCP) partnership with RSBY and MSBY through creation of innovative MDR-TB packages under the Universal Health Insurance Scheme (UHIS), integrating it in a list of other disease packages by December 2012.. Our study provides evidence of cost savings for MDR-TB patients requiring hospitalisation for ambulatory care patients in comparison with facility-based treatment with similar outcomes. These cost savings may improve equity, however covering of indirect costs such as travel as part of the current government initiative for covering MDR-TB costs under the state health insurance schemes could mitigate the costs impact on low-income ...

Background: Despite recent advances, acute myocardial infarction (AMI) still carries significant morbidity and mortality. The American Heart Association Get With the Guidelines program (GWTG) has improved the quality of AMI care with important implications for other countries in the world. This study evaluated the care and outcomes of AMI in Taiwan and assessed the applicability of GWTG in Taiwan.. Methods and Results: The National Health Insurance Research database (NHIRD) is derived from the claims data of the National Health Insurance program that covers over 99% of Taiwans population. By using the 1999-2008 NHIRD, we analyzed the temporal patterns of AMI care during hospitalization based on GWTG measures in Taiwan. Overall, the AMI incidence is still increasing in Taiwan. The age-adjusted incidence of AMI (/100,000 persons/year) gradually increased from 28.0 in 1999 to 44.4 in 2008 (P,0.001). Aspirin was used in 92.3% in 2004 and 92.2% in 2008 (P=NS).

Enhancing National Health Care In Ghana Through Government Programs And Community Partnership. Ghana, a highly-indebted poor country with just over 20 million people, has a severe shortage of trained medical personnel and health care facilities. This study examines the measures taken by the Kufuor administration (2001-2009) to improve Ghanas national health system as well as the extent to which an Elon University, Periclean Scholars class of 2010 community partnership with Kpoeta, Ghana has supported Ghanas national health care goals. It also evaluates the relative success of measures to improve healthcare undertaken by the Government of Ghana and the 2010 Periclean Scholars based on analysis of research studies, feedback from our partnering community and first-hand experience in the country over fall 2008 and January 2009. Findings include that funds and goods distributed through government-supported incentive programs aimed at reversing the exodus of trained medical professionals to foreign ...
Several critical studies in accounting have approached the introduction of accounting systems in the public sector in terms of enforcing and sustaining competition-based resource allocation mechanisms. In this study, we reverse the question and ask: why has accounting not been used in certain public bureaucracies as much as it might? We investigate the extent to which accounting systems have been used in the management of the Greek National Health System (ESY) and find that accounting has played a marginal role in its development. Attempting to explain this puzzling feature we first note and then contrast the main underlying features of accounting systems with those of the Greek political system in general, and ESY in particular Briefly, our explanation is that the historically high politicization that has characterized the Greek political system has tended to overshadow the economic-cum-managerial dimension of running public bureaucracies, favouring overtly political evaluation criteria of ...
Ang health insurance ay isang binabayarang produkto na ang layunin ay gawing garantisado ang kalusugan ng isang tao. Sa pamamagitan ng pagbigay ng kontribusyon kada buwan, makakasigurado ang isang tao na makakakuha siya ng tulong sa insurance kapag siya ay nangailangan. Dahil hindi naman lahat ng tao ay nagkakasakit nang sabay-sabay, ang inyong kontribusyon ay maaaring gagamitin upang matugunan ang mga problemang pangkalusugan ng ibang tao. Sa kabilang banda, ang pera ng ibang tao ay maaari ring gamitin upang mabigyan ka ng serbisyong pangkalusugan. Sa madaling salita, ang silbe ng insurance na ito ay siguraduhing mabibigyan ka ng serbisyong pangkalusugan sa oras ng iyong pangangailangan..

Dodd, who decided against running for a sixth term in office this year, said the event did help by clarifying the issues that separate Democrats and Republicans. Dodd admitted Friday that hes not enamored of using the Senate reconciliation process to pass health care reform -- a legislative move that allows the majority party to pass bills with a 51-vote majority. [...] he also said the Senate has used the reconciliation process more than 22 times in past years to get difficult bills passed, including the legislation that created COBRA, which allows people who leave a job to buy health insurance from their old employers, and SCHIP, the national health insurance program for children. The local postmaster gets the same insurance as I do. Because that insurance pays for annual check-up, Dodd was able to learn in July that he had prostate cancer.
The National Health Insurance Act stipulates that foreign nationals who with Valid Alien Resident Certificate or Resident certificate for the Taiwan area( including those from Hong Kong, Macau and China) must be registered in the National Health Insurance program upon living in Taiwan for 6 months (6 months of continuous residence in Taiwan or with one trip abroad not exceeding 30 days when the actual residency period of 6 months is reached after the days abroad have been deducted). But those people who get work permits with ARC must join the National Health Insurance program by their employer starting the day they are employed. ...

Rethinking Health Care , Events , Speakers , Seminars , Resources Dr. Stephanie Woolhandler, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and founder of Physicians for a National Health Program, will present her lecture Health Reform: The Need for Single Payer National Health Insurance as part of the Weissman Centers Fall 2009 series, Rethinking Healthcare on Wednesday, November 18, at 7:30 pm in Gamble Auditorium, Art Building, at Mount Holyoke College. The United States spends $2 trillion a year on health care, the highest per capita spending for health care in the world. Despite spending nearly twice as much on health care as residents of other nations, Americans have relatively poor health and access to health care. Americans are dying at an earlier age than the average life expectancy for developed countries. Life expectancy in Canada and much of Western Europe is about two years longer than in the U.S. 47 million Americans have no health insurance, and private coverage is often so ...
This chapter discusses private health insurance, social health insurance, and tax-financed health care. These three health insurance systems differ in terms of three Cs: costs, coverage, and choice. ... More. This chapter discusses private health insurance, social health insurance, and tax-financed health care. These three health insurance systems differ in terms of three Cs: costs, coverage, and choice. Private health insurance is the most costly one to manage. Coverage is limited to people who have taken out insurance, but the choice to do so is of course voluntary. The contrasting system is taxation: it is cheap, it involves universal coverage, but it is compulsory. Social health insurance (SHI) lies between the two contrasting systems, but in practice is quite similar to tax-funded health care on two crucial issues. First, there is no link between size of the individuals contribution and their expected use of health care. Hence, the inefficiencies in the labour market associated with direct ...

Data from the National Health Insurance Service and National Statistical Office in Korea from 2007 to 2011 were analyzed in this ecological study. Univariate and multivariable regression analyses were performed to determine risk factors for age standardized mortality rates (ASMR) of bladder and prostate cancers. Linear regression analysis showed a markedly (p , 0.001) uneven distribution ...
The Spanish National Health System (Spanish: Sistema Nacional de Salud, SNS) is the agglomeration of public health services that has existed in Spain since it was established through and structured by the Ley General de Sanidad (the General Health Law) of 1986. Management of these services has been progressively transferred to the distinct autonomous communities of Spain, while some continue to be operated by the National Institute of Health Management (Instituto Nacional de Gestión Sanitaria, INGESA), part of the Ministry of Health and Social Policy (which superseded the Ministry of Health and Consumer Affairs-Ministerio de Sanidad y Consumo-in 2009). The activity of these services is harmonized by the Interterritorial Council of the Spanish National Health Service (Consejo Interterritorial del Servicio Nacional de Salud de España, CISNS) in order to give cohesion to the system and to guarantee the rights of citizens throughout Spain. Article 46 of the Ley General de Sanidad establishes the ...
Auxiliary nurse midwife, commonly known as ANM, is a village-level female health worker in India who is known as the first contact person between the community and the health services. ANMs are regarded as the grass-roots workers in the health organisation pyramid. Their services are considered important to provide safe and effective care to village communities. The role may help communities achieve the targets of national health programmes. The Mukherjee Committee in 1966 prescribed a system of targets and incentives and identified ANMs and other village-level workers as agents for the popularization of the health programmes. In the 1950s and 1960s, training of ANMs mainly focused on midwifery and mother and child health. In 1973, the Kartar Singh Committee of the Government of India combined the functions of the health services and changed the role of ANMs. The committee recommended that there should be 1 ANM available per 10,000-12,000 people. In 1975, the Srivastava Committee recommended ...
Many Low-and-Middle-Income countries are considering reviewing their health financing systems to meet the principles of Universal Health Coverage (UHC). One financing mechanism, which has dominated UHC reforms, is the development of health insurance schemes. We trace the historical development of the National Health Insurance (NHI) policy, illuminate stakeholders perceptions on the design to inform future development of health financing policies in Kenya. We conducted a retrospective policy analysis of the development of a NHI policy in Kenya using data from document reviews and seven in depth interviews with key stakeholders involved in the NHI design. Analysis was conducted using a thematic framework. The design of a NHI scheme was marked by complex interaction of the actors understanding of the design, proposed implementation strategies and the covert opposition of the reform due to several reasons. First, actors perception of the cost of the NHI design and its implication to the economy generated
BACKGROUND: Previous studies revealed that chronic exposure to air pollution can significantly increase the risk of the development of Parkinsons disease (PD), but this relationship is inconclusive as large-scale prospective studies are limited and the results are inconsistent. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to ascertain the adverse health effects of air pollution exposure in a nationwide population using a longitudinal approach. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a nested case-control study using the National Health Insurance Research Dataset (NHIRD), which consisted of 1,000,000 beneficiaries in the National Health Insurance Program (NHI) in the year 2000 and their medical records from 1995 to 2013 and using public data on air pollution concentrations from monitoring stations across Taiwan released from the Environmental Protection Administration to identify people with ages ≥ 40 years living in areas with monitoring stations during 1995-1999 as study subjects ...
Data source: Minimum Basic Data Set (MBDS) of hospital care episodes. Potential Day Surgery Episode (PDSE) was defined as the hospital episode with a surgical procedure (ICD-9-CM), programmed admission and home discharge. To be considered as PDSE, the selected procedure must appear in at least 50 day-surgery cases and be developed in at least 5 hospitals. The study database included: MBDS of 188 (85%) hospitals in the National Health System and 32 (15%) Spanish private hospitals in the year 2006 with 1,162,082 surgical admissions. From 1,770 procedures identified (ICD-9-MC), 798 fulfilled PDSE criteria that were finally grouped in 204 procedure groups. From the total number of surgical admissions, 931,630 episodes were considered as PDSE and 541,715 were observed as real day-surgery episodes (substitution index of 58.1%). A logistic regression model was applied to estimate the expected number of day-surgery episodes. The dependent variable was day-surgery case (yes/no). ...
Background: To investigate the occurrence of pneumonia in the real world among patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, or asthma-COPD overlap syndrome (ACOS) treated with two different inhaled corticosteroids (ICS), budesonide vs fluticasone.. Methods: National registry data were collected from the Korean National Health Insurance Research Database, comprising 1,025,340 random subjects who were selected from 46,605,433 Korean residents in 2002. Patients with asthma or COPD who used budesonide or fluticasone for the first time since 2003 were enrolled. Pneumonia and ICS-related pneumonia (pneumonia with history of ICS usage within 3 months) were counted. Pneumonia was identified if ICD-10 diagnosis and antibiotics were prescribed within 2 day.. Results: A total of 15,476 patients were enrolled and there were 2,707 patients with pneumonia during follow-up periods. Univariate analysis showed that pneumonia were more frequent in patients with older age, higher daily ICS ...
Brasilia, 10 Sept - The Mozambican capital has been chosen as the location of the first foreign office of the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz), as part of a health cooperation package announced last Thursday by President Luís Inácio Lula da Silva.. During a meeting with Mozambican President Armando Guebuza, Lula also announced plans to build in Maputo a factory for medicine meant for HIV/AIDS patients.. The Brazilian president highlighted the large number of businesseople in the visiting delegation and recalled Brazils participation in the Mozambican economy, particularly in Vale do Rio Doce, where the exploitation of coal reserves began this year.. We hope this encourages a new cycle of infrastructure and development investments, said Lula. Guebuza, who succeeded Joaquim Chissano in 2005, replied by stressing the importance of the announced health initiatives and the great expectations regarding the medicine factory. The Mozambican president showed interest in cooperation in the power ...
BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to ascertain the relationships of blood pressure, fasting sugar level, triglyceride (TG) level, uric acid level, and body mass index (BMI) with proteinuria and the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in a population from southern Taiwan. METHODS: The 20,900 subjects enrolled in this study had undergone a free adult health examination under the National Health Insurance scheme between September 2005 and June 2011. Factors such as blood pressure, blood sugar, TG, uric acid and BMI were examined in terms of their relationships with the eGFR (calculated according to the Taiwanese Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (Taiwanese-MDRD)) and proteinuria ...
The Paris HIV cascade is not directly estimated. It is approached on the basis of several sets of data and estimations at national level. The number of people on care is based on national health insurance data for people receiving free care for HIV infection in 2013. This figure is estimated to account for approximatively 85% of people on HIV care since a significant proportion of individuals do not apply for free care or are not insured by the national health insurance system . The number of undiagnosed HIV + individuals was estimated for 2010 based on French national HIV surveillance data and a back-calculation approach. For 2010, this number was added to the estimated number of people in care to estimate the number of HIV+ individuals and the proportion of those in care: 81%. Information on being on ARV treatment and RNA measurement are based on the French Hospital Database for 2014. Viral suppression was defined as HIV RNA ...

In their study, Dr. Song and team examined atrial fibrillations associations with both heart failure and poor oral hygiene. They used data from 161,286 people who were part of the Korean National Health Insurance System-Health Screening Cohort.. A-fib is a condition affecting at least 2.7 million people in the United States. In people with A-fib, the heart cannot efficiently pump blood to the rest of the body because it does not beat regularly.. The heart also does not pump blood as it should in people with heart failure. This inefficiency results in fatigue and, sometimes, breathing difficulties, as insufficient oxygen reaches the other organs in the body.. The participants of the current study were 40-79 years old and had no history of either A-fib or heart failure. During enrollment, which took place between 2003 and 2004, the team measured the height and weight of each of the participants and asked them questions about their lifestyle, oral health, and oral hygiene habits.. The participants ...

I cannot tell you how important it is to have a health insurance scheme both for yourself as well as for your loved ones. You probably will not realize the significance of the health insurance until tragedies strike or when you or your loved ones get afflicted with an ailment that requires costly medical treatment and hospitalization. When Alycia was 14 months old, she was attacked by Rotavirus and purged non-stop for several days. She was hospitalized for 3 nights and luckily our health care insurer settled the bill. It would have burned a big hole in our pockets had we not purchased a health insurance scheme for Alycia ...
While pioglitazone reduces insulin resistance and hepatic gluconeogenesis effectively in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), these benefits remained controversial in patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD). We compared major adverse cardiac cerebrovascular events (MACCEs) and mortality (overall, infection-related, and MACCE-related) of pioglitazone to that of dipeptidyl peptidase 4 inhibitors (DPP4-inhibitors) in patients with T2DM and ESRD. From Taiwan’s national health insurance research database (NHIRD), 647 pioglitazone users and 6080 DPP4-inhibitors users between 1 April 2006 and 31 December 2016 were followed from the 91th date after the ESRD certification until the study outcomes, independently; withdraw from the NHI program, death, or 31 December 2017, whichever came first. After weighting, risks of MACCEs (10.48% vs. 12.62% per person-years, hazard ratio (HR): 0.85, 95% (CI): 0.729–0.985) and all-cause mortality (12.86% vs. 13.22% per person-years, (HR): 0.88, 95%
BACKGROUND: Evidence-based guideline recommendations on lipid lowering drug treatment, in particular statin treatment, play an essential role in the management of dyslipidemias and in the prevention of cardiovascular disease events. In Germany, statutory health insurance data provide information on time trends in the prescription of lipid lowering drugs. However, population-based data regarding changes in user prevalence according to socio-demographic and health-related characteristics are lacking. Based on data from national health interview and examination surveys for adults in Germany 1997-1999 (GNHIES98) and 2008-2010 (DEGS1), the present analysis aims to close this information gap with a particular focus on the use of statins. METHODS: The study population consisted of 7,099 participants (GNHIES98) and 7,091 participants (DEGS1) aged 18 to 79 years at the time of the respective surveys. Primary data on medication use within 7 days prior to the survey were collected using standardized ...
Until four years ago, Germany was one of very few Western countries where pharmaceutical companies remained free to set prices at the level they chose. As a result, drug prices were renowned for being as much as 26% higher than average prices across the EU. However, all this changed at the beginning of 2011. Faced with spiraling costs and the prospect of an €11 billion deficit in the states statutory health insurance scheme, the government took action. - News - PharmaTimes
Background: Kawasaki disease (KD) is an immune-mediated systemic vasculitis and infection plays an important role in the pathophysiology of KD. The susceptibility to infectious disease in patients with KD remains largely unclear. This study aimed to investigate the risk of respiratory tract infection (RTI)-related hospitalizations in children with KD. Methods: Data from Taiwanese National Health Insurance Research Database was analyzed. Children with KD were selected as KD group and age- and sex-matched non-KD patients were selected as control group with 1:1 ratio. Both cohorts were tracked for 1 year to investigate the incidences of RTI-related hospitalizations. Cox regression hazard model was used to adjust for confounding factors and calculate the adjusted hazard ratio (aHR). Results: Between January 1996 and December 2012, 13,760 patients with KD were identified as KD group and 13,709 patients were enrolled as control group. An obviously reduced risk of RTI-related hospitalizations was ...

INTRODUCTION. The evolving situation presented by the increase of the provision of healthcare services may signal an expansion of access for the population to these services, however, some challenges remain in relation to the quality of the services provided and, consequently, to the field of meeting the health needs, which are renew at each stage of implementation of the Brazilian National Health System (SUS). To address these challenges, the 2006 Health Pact proposed the structuring of a supportive and regionalized network of actions and services that qualify the management process.1 The structure of these networks must have, as a starting point, the organization of the primary healthcare, located at the center of this network, such as organizing the flow and counter-flow of people to the other levels of the system, with the exception of the cases of urgency and emergency.1 With regard to these flows, in many situations in which primary healthcare is not resolutive, the demand for ...
