This study demonstrates a major influence of prehypertension and hypertension on healthcare costs in a large cohort of children, independent of body mass index.
By Lisa Rapaport(Reuters Health) - Skin cancers caused by indoor tanning are responsible for $343 million a year in direct medical costs for U.S. patients, a recent study suggests. On top of those direct healthcare costs, lost productivity and early deaths among patients with melanoma and other malignancies tied to tanning bed use will exceed $127 billion over the lifetime of the people currently diagnosed with these cancers, the study also found.
The average per-capita cost of health-care services covered by commercial insurance and Medicare increased at a more-moderate pace in 2010, according to data released today by Standard & Poors.. For 2010, health-care costs covered by commercial insurance rose by 7.75 percent and Medicare claim costs increased at 3.27 percent, the report said.. Compared to May 2010, commercial costs are down 2.13 percentage points and Medicare, down 3.57 percentage points.. "The December year-end report shows that the trend of slowing annual growth rates in health-care costs that started in early/mid-2010 continued through the end of 2010," says David M. Blitzer, chairman of the index committee at Standard & Poors.. Ann Schrader: 303-954-1967 or [email protected]enverpost.com.. ...
OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to estimate the annual socioeconomic cost of diseases in Korea. METHODS: We estimate both the direct and indirect costs of diseases in Korea during 2003 using a prevalence-based approach. The direct cost estimates included medical expenditures, traffic costs and caregivers cost, and the indirect costs, representing the loss of production, included lost workdays due to illness and lost earnings due to premature death, which were estimated based on the human capital theory. The cost estimates were reported at three different discount rates (0, 3 and 5%). RESULTS: The cost of diseases in Korea during 2003 was 38.4 trillion won based on 0% discount rate. This estimate represents approximately 5.3% of GDP. The direct and indirect costs were estimated to be 22.5 trillion (58.5% of total cost) and 15.9 trillion won (41.5%), respectively. It was also found that the cost for those aged 40~49 accounted for the largest proportion (21.7%) in relation to age groups. The ...
There is limited evidence on the costs associated with ipilimumab. We investigated healthcare costs of all Dutch patients with advanced cutaneous melanoma who were treated with ipilimumab. Data were retrieved from the nation-wide Dutch Melanoma Treatment Registry. Costs were determined by applying unit costs to individual patient resource use. A total of 807 patients who were diagnosed between July 2012 and July 2015 received ipilimumab in Dutch practice. The mean (median) episode duration was 6.27 (4.61) months (computed from the start of ipilimumab until the start of a next treatment, death, or the last date of follow-up). The average total healthcare costs amounted to €81 484, but varied widely (range: €18 131-€160 002). Ipilimumab was by far the most important cost driver (€73 739). Other costs were related to hospital admissions (€3323), hospital visits (€1791), diagnostics and imaging (€1505), radiotherapy (€828), and surgery (€297). Monthly costs for resource use other ...
OBJECTIVES: Low dose computerised tomography (CT) screening for lung cancer can reduce lung-cancer-specific mortality. The objective of this study was to analyse healthcare costs and healthcare utilisation of participants in the Danish lung cancer CT-screening trial (DLCST). MATERIALS AND METHODS: This registry study was nested in a randomised controlled trial (DLCST). 4104 participants, current or former heavy smokers, aged 50-70 years were randomised to five annual low dose CT scans or usual care during 2004-2010. Total healthcare costs and healthcare utilisation data for both the primary and the secondary healthcare sector were retrieved from public registries from randomisation - September 2011 and compared between (1) the CT-screening group and the control group and, (2) the control group and each of the true-positive, false-positive and true-negative groups. RESULTS: The median annual costs per participant were significantly higher in the CT-screening group (Euros [EUR] 1342, interquartile ...
Freddie Henriksson (. ), Sten Fredrikson and Bengt J nsson (. ). Abstract: This study has used a cross-sectional, bottom-up design to determine the cost to society of multiple sclerosis (MS) in Sweden in 1998. The total cost of MS was estimated at 4 868 MSEK, meaning an annual cost of 442 500 SEK per patient. Direct costs accounted for about 67% of total cost, and direct costs were dominated by the cost of personal assistants and drugs. Indirect costs accounted for about 33% of total costs and were totally dominated by the cost of long-term sickness absence from work and early retirement. Intangible costs were estimated at 2 700 MSEK. A former Swedish study on MS for 1994, using main diagnosis to calculate costs, showed the total cost to be 1 736 MSEK. Increased disability as measured by EDSS was found to have a major impact on the cost of the disease and on quality of life. Both direct, indirect and informal care costs rose significantly with increased EDSS and were higher during a relapse. ...
The novel findings of this study are that elderly liver cancer patients with HCs in their LML include patients receiving aggressive EOL cancer care such as ICU care, ventilator support, anticancer treatment, and a high number of admission days. Additionally, comorbidities such as CKD, esophageal varices with bleeding and receiving opioid medicine are significant independent positive predictors of HCs. However, patients with more admission times in the LML, comorbidities of ascites and hypertension were significantly negative predictors of HCs.. The cost of cancer care has increased dramatically in the past 20 years, particularly at EOL [26], thus taxing a burdened health care system. Carlson et al. reported that Medicare patients with healthcare costs greater than the 95th percentile consumed 40% of total Medicare costs from 1998 to 2002 [42]. In the current study, 212 patients (10%) had HCs (, US $5093 per person), accounting for 38.95% of the total healthcare costs of this population. Our ...
California ranks second in the nation in cases of HIV, with over 170,000 persons currently living with HIV with the direct healthcare cost to California approaching $1.8 billion annually. A curative treatment is therefore a high priority. A stem cell based therapy offers promise for this goal, by providing an inexhaustible source of protected, HIV specific immune cells that would provide constant surveillance and potential eradication of the virus in the body.. ...
Results There were 12,717 eligible patients in the primary cohort: the majority (86%) were female and the mean age was 51 years. Overall, 61% of patients had claims associated with extra-glandular disease manifestations. These patients experienced a higher disease burden with 41% reporting pain, fatigue and/or insomnia, compared with 12% of patients with glandular disease only who reported pain, fatigue and/or insomnia. Patients in the primary cohort incurred greater annual healthcare service costs (1.6 times greater for all causes and 1.5 times greater for pSS-related causes) and healthcare resource utilisation compared with the sicca-free comparator cohort. The largest difference in SS-related resource utilisation was in the number of office visits (primary cohort: 5.8 visits per patient; comparator cohort: 4.7 visits per patient). Patients with extra-glandular disease also incurred greater average annual costs and used more healthcare resources than patients with glandular disease only. ...
Excess weight is a common condition associated with an increased incidence of conditions including type-2 diabetes, vascular diseases, osteoarthritis, depression, and certain cancers, as well as with higher mortality. It is also associated with higher total healthcare spending, but the associations with different types of healthcare services are not well understood. In addition, most evidence comes from the US, with no reliable individual participant data pertaining directly to the UK. Given differences between countries in terms of healthcare organisation, delivery, and financing, and in population characteristics, it is important to generate evidence for different jurisdictions. This project summarises the existing evidence on healthcare costs in relation to body mass index, and provides novel estimates for the UK. Estimates of percentage differences in annual healthcare costs for overweight and obese adults, compared to adults at healthy weight, will be estimated, overall and separately for ...
Employers using wellness programs are seeing a 6.1 percent average annual medical cost trend reduction and a 13.5 percent average annual medical cost trend reduction among members with core conditions, according to a recent study.
For the first time a comprehensive simulation model regarding cost estimations for HF patient treatment, including outpatient as well as inpatient care was developed. Compared to other existing models which primarily consider hospitalization cost factors, the total cost estimation is implemented in a more exact approach. Additionally the developed model takes costs of outpatient care, costs for monitoring the patients and equipment costs into account. In other studies regarding economic analyses of HF telemonitoring systems these items were considered separately, however not combined in one comprehensive work. In his review Seto concluded that most of the studies included hospitalization costs and telemonitoring equipment costs, but only one study discussed the direct impact of HF telemonitoring on expenses for the patient [11]. A consideration of the so called indirect costs for the patients, currently not implemented, seems to be an improvement of the presented model. For example travel costs ...
Health-care costs have been steadily rising over the decades, yet many boomers are planning adequately to cover the costs in retirement.
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) have a considerable impact on the health of adolescents and young adults in the United States. In 2000, an estimated nine million cases of STDs occurred among persons aged 15-24.1 In addition, STDs impose a substantial economic burden: The direct cost of STDs, including HIV, among all age-groups was estimated to be $9.3-15.5 billion in the United States in the mid-1990s, adjusted to year 2000 dollars.2
Healthcare costs are on the rise. The latest Health Trends Spending Brief from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) notes that the US spend per capita on healthcare costs has exceeded $10,000 in 2017.
The total costs of diagnosed diabetes have risen to $245 billion in 2012 from $174 billion in 2007, when the cost was last examined, says the American Diabetes Association. This figure represents a 41% increase over a 5-year period. The study, Economic Costs of Diabetes in the US in 2012, includes direct medical costs of $176 billion, which reflects costs for hospital and emergency care, office visits, and medications; and indirect medical costs totaling $69 billion. Indirect costs include absenteeism, reduced productivity, unemployment caused by diabetes-related disability, and lost productivity due to early mortality ...

Despite the evidence demonstrating that the social and economic cost of HIV/AIDS is quite substantial, there are still areas where knowledge of this issue is scant. This review contributes in analysing the effort done in the last decade to measure the cost of illness of this disease and highlights the way forward for advancing in this area. There is a great paucity of information available on the non-medical costs incurred due to HIV/AIDS treatment. The non-medical cost components that were identified and assigned a monetary value comprised lost working time, formal and informal care, and disability payments. Although no studies of this nature have been carried out in France or Germany, research in Spain, Italy, and the United Kingdom has revealed that while these values are lower than medical-care costs, they are substantial sums nonetheless.. While there appears to be little doubt that prolonging the life expectancy of carriers of the virus who live in high-income countries increases the cost ...
Our studys biggest strength is its comprehensiveness. This explains why our results seem at variance with an American (Medicare) study that shows decreasing costs at the oldest ages.2 The American study did not include long term home care for elderly people or care in nursing and old peoples homes. It is these costs which cause the exponential increase in costs in old age. Like the American study we found that costs for acute admissions in hospital decrease at the oldest ages (figure 1). Most of these patients are already admitted to a nursing home or are too old or too ill to consider hospital admission useful. A Swedish study, which is older and less complete, showed the same results.9. Our findings correspond largely with those of our earlier study in 1988. 10 11 Studies that are more or less comparable have been published in England,3 Australia,4 and Canada.5 These studies show basically similar cost patterns but with lower shares, particularly for mental retardation and dementia. However, ...
Background and aim. Heart failure (HF) is a common condition associated with poor quality of life (QoL), high morbidity and mortality and is frequently occurring in primary health care (PHC). It involves a substantial economic burden on the health care expenditure. There are modern pharmacological treatments with evident impact on QoL, morbidity, mortality, and proved to be cost-effective. Despite this knowledge, the treatment of HF is considered somewhat insufficient. There are several HF management programmes (HFMP) showing beneficial effects but these studies is predominantly based in hospital care (HC).. The first aim of this thesis was to describe patients with HF in the PHC regarding gender differences, diagnosis, treatment and health related costs (I, II).The second aim was to evaluate whether HFMP have beneficial effects in the PHC regarding cardiac function, quality of life, health care utilization and health care-related costs (III,IV).. Methods. The initial study involved ...
article{97297b71-cb07-4379-b4dd-594c9a4bb994, abstract = {,p,Aims To describe weight-change pathways in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and associated healthcare costs using repeated BMI measurements and healthcare utilization data. Methods Patients with newly-diagnosed T2D with body mass index (BMI, kg/m,sup,2,/sup,) at diagnosis and subsequent measures at year 1-3 were identified. Based on three-year BMI change, patients were assigned to one of 27 BMI change pathways defined by annual BMI change: BMI↗ (≥1 BMI unit increase), BMI→ (<1 BMI unit change), and BMI↘ (≥1 BMI unit decrease). Mean annual and three-year cumulative healthcare costs were estimated for each pathway by combining Swedish unit costs with resource use from primary care and national patient registers. Results Cohort consisted of 15,819 patients; 44% women, mean age of 61 years, HbA1c of 6.7% (50 mmol/mol), BMI of 30.6 kg/m,sup,2,/sup,. Most common BMI pathways (mean costs): BMI→→→ (€5,311), BMI↘→→ ...
Paying for adequate health care has always been a major cost of living, but recent years have seen soaring medical costs for many Americans. An increased focus on precautionary testing and the proliferation of expensive procedures such as MRI scanning have contributed significantly to this trend. A modern MRI scanner can cost $1.8 million or more, and a state-of-the-art PET/CT scanner can cost $2.5 million and up.. However, prescription-drug costs have drawn the most attention. Drug costs have long placed a heavy burden on ailing seniors, cancer patients and others, but many prescription drugs have lately seen stratospheric price spikes. Drug companies typically claim that the high costs of writing off failed development efforts, conducting ongoing research projects and complying with onerous regulatory requirements have forced them to raise prices for their limited portfolios of commercially successful, FDA-approved products.. An investigation launched in late 2014 by the U.S. House of ...
1 INTRODUCTION. Injuries, occupational diseases, and illnesses related to work are negative consequences of human work activities. They represent a significant social and economic burden on individuals, employers, and society. For individuals, the effect is not just the physical pain and suffering, but is also the loss of part of a salary and the inability to maintain a standard of living.. Employers have significant costs associated with occupational injuries, diseases, and death. There are direct costs (payments to be made in cases of injury and illness of workers) and indirect costs (through the absence from work of injured or ill workers; other employees having to stop work because of accidents; and reduced production). According to a study conducted at Stanford University, indirect costs are 1.1 (for the most serious injuries) to 4.5 (for minor injuries) times greater than the direct costs [1].. Worldwide, every day more than 12 workers die on the job (more than 4,500 a year), and every ...

The medication cost of sulfonylureas is less than that of other medications (except metformin); the medication costs of regular and NPH insulin are less than those of the insulin analogs. However, when one considers morbidity, mortality, and costs of emergency room visits and hospitalizations due to hypoglycemia, use of sulfonylureas is more expensive than the other classes of medications. Similarly, use of regular and NPH insulins have ultimately a larger total cost than insulin analogs due to hypoglycemia. The cost of insulin, oral agents, and diabetic supplies is only 12.1% of the total annual cost of diabetes-related expenses for patients with diabetes (Table 9 in ref. [5]). ...
More than half (60%) of respondents over 50 years old said they were worried they would have to delay their retirement, possibly because of the impact of government policies or a lack of savings to cover health-care costs, according to the Investopedia report. This can serve as a lesson for millennials. Health-care costs might be dangerously underestimated - today, a couple might need $350,000 to pay for most of their health-care costs. Not everyone can afford their health care - more people have had trouble paying for their health insurance since 2015, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, and theyre putting off taking care of themselves: 27% of the public said they or a family member have delayed necessary health care because it was too expensive, with another 23% saying they skipped a medical test or treatment and 21% didnt fill a prescription ...

She expressed optimism that the capacity of medical personnel would be up scaled, saying that their aim was to ascertain healthcare needs of the state with a view to offering help or assistance.. She said that the partnership with Delta was due to the fact that the state has a model that is already operational, but however, pointed out that the company has its focus on the entire country.. She described diabetes and hypertension as major public health concern because they impose significant economic burdens on governments, patients and care-givers.. "However, it has also been established that proper disease awareness and good quality of care often lead to very positive outcomes for these conditions.. "Access to quality care remains a critical need in our environment," she said.. Odediran further said that the company would be working in collaboration with stakeholders to empower people and healthcare practitioners with the right disease information and capacity to effectively manage the ...
Will reform impact health care cost? It will but whether it will drive cost up or down is yet to be determined. The cost of medical care is driven by provider decisions/determinations (in error between 30% and 50% of the time) and patient wants/desires (usually unrelated to needs or what medical science can deliver). Insurance companies call this the medical loss ratio. It is about 80% of the total cost of care. The remaining 20% is the cost of insurance administration. For Medicare and Medicaid this cost is about 3% as administration (claims processing) has been turned into a commodity rather than a profit center. If the people (the government is supposed to be by the people) acknowledge that health care is a right then the logical way to proceed is to expand Medicare/Medicaid for all. The total health care cost would be cut by 17%. Insurance companies would still be in the business of processing claims but would not be in the business of supporting the excessive overhead of marketing, ...
Obesity Needs To Be Treated as a Disease By Patricia Reaney ATHENS (Reuters) - Obesity, which already affects more than 300 million people and an alarming number of children, must be recognized and treated as a disease with deadly complications, a leading expert said on Wednesday. Up to 8 percent of total healthcare costs in some Western countries are attributable to obesity and related problems. It is a leading cause of preventable death -- so shedding excess weight is not just

Source: Health Care Cost Survey, Towers Perrin, 2007. From the press release: STAMFORD, CT, SEPTEMBER 24, 2007 - As employers across the United States get ready to unveil next years health plan changes - and the costs associated with them to Americas workers and retirees, new data from Towers Perrin indicate that the average corporate health benefit expenditure in 2008 will be $9,312 per employee - an increase of 7% over 2007.. According to Towers Perrins annual Health Care Cost Survey, which for nearly two decades has offered the industrys most in-depth, prospective look at the upcoming years health care costs for employers, employees and retirees, the 7% growth rate projected for 2008 is among the lowest of the last five years. While the trend is holding steady for the broad respondent group, the survey shows a significant cost differential for companies that are actively - and effectively - managing program performance. Those "high-performing companies" will see annual per-employee costs ...
INDIANAPOLIS - Employers who offer health insurance coverage could see a 9 percent cost increase next year, and their workers may face an even bigger hit, according to a report from consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. Costs will rise in part because workers worried about losing their jobs are using their health care more while they still have it, the firm said in the report released to The Associated Press. The report also said rising unemployment is driving up medical costs. Health care reform legislation currently being hashed out in Congress likely will have little impact on next years costs, said PWC principal ...

A 32% to 50% increase in the number of elementary children who perform 25 minutes of physical activity three times per week could avoid $21.9 billion in medical costs and lost wages over the course of their lifetimes.. These findings, from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, were published recently in Health Affairs.. In addition, researchers note just a small increase in the frequency of exercise among children ages eight through 11 would also result in 340,000 fewer obese and overweight youth-a reduction of more than 4%. If all current eight- through 11-year-olds in the United States exercised 25 minutes a day, three times a week, the researchers suggest that $62.3 billion in medical costs and lost wages over the course of their lifetimes could be avoided and in 1.2 million fewer youths would be overweight or obese.. These numbers represent cost savings for one cohort of eight-to-11 year olds, so every year that children in this age group reach those levels of physical ...

Since its inception, the cost of mammalian cell culture has decreased significantly. As we have gained experience growing cells, making media, producing components, etc., cell culture has become faster, more robust, more productive, and more standardized. Despite these advances, cell culture is still a complex process that has many costs. The stem cell and CHO lines being cultivated today require much more understanding than the chicken heart fibroblasts of yesteryear (see this 2010 paper vs. the 1919 paper).. When evaluating the cost of cell culture, it is important to consider all the costs that go into cultivating cells. Labor and time account for one of the largest costs associated with cell culture (although they are probably a smaller portion of costs at 20,000 L, but at that scale many considerations change). Accelerating adaptation to new growth conditions, reducing the scale up period, and shortening batch times can all significantly reduce the total cost of cell culture.. Increasing ...
The increase annually in healthcare costs appears to be slowing. According to Sandra Block of Gannett News Service, "If theres any good news to be found, its that the increase in overall costs of providing healthcare to employees has slowed. Tower projects an increase of 5.9 percent in 2012, which represents a significant change from 7.6 percent in 2011. Mercer, another human resources consulting firm, predicts that employee healthcare costs will rise 5.4 percent in 2012. Thats small consolation, though, to employees whose income hasnt kept pace with the rise in healthcare costs. In August, personal income fell 0.1 percent from July, driven by a decline in wages and salaries, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis.". Theres bad news for Americans whose healthcare insurance is provided by their employer. According to Towers Watson, a human resources consultant, employers will pass on cost increases primarily through higher employee premium contributions. Towers Watson says that 66 ...

Physicians who have more personalized discussions with patients and encourage them to take a more active role in their own health care can help lower medical costs and reduce the need for some health-care services, according to new research from UC Davis Health System.
External costs are discussed more in Negative externalities. Economics has a long tradition of distinguishing those costs which are fully internalized by economic agents (internal or private costs) and those which are not (external or social costs). The difference comes from the way that economics views the series of interrelated markets. Agents (individuals, households, firms and governments) in these markets interact by buying and selling goods are services, as inputs to and outputs from production. A firm pays an individual for labor services performed and that individual pays the grocery store for the food purchased and the grocery store pays the utility for the electricity and heat it uses in the store. Through these market transactions, the cost of providing the good or service in each case is reflected in the price which one agent pays to another. As long as these prices reflect all costs, markets will provide the required, desirable, and economically efficient amount of the good or ...

The attitude is changing, though. Rising medical costs, coupled with a new understanding of disease and health is changing perceptions about the world of medicine. The cost of medical treatment rises at about 3 to 5 times the rate of inflation. Nothing seems to reduce it. Hospitals have tried to rein in costs. Their ideas, from reducing staff and shortening stays to timesharing equipment among facilities do not keep pace. In desperation, hospitals form conglomerates and try to become managed care associations, which tends to reduce the service to their patients while failing to contain costs. Managed care tries to rein in doctor fees, but the cost in care quality is high. They even stop giving away the suckers ...

A new report from the UK finds that when it comes to treating alcohol-related ailments, middle-aged patients cost Englands National Health Service significantly more than younger adults.. And while it makes sense that booze would take more of a toll on older adults than the younger set - after all, theyve got quite a few more years of drinking under their proverbial belts - the magnitude of the cost difference is whats startling: Alcohol-related hospital admissions for 55- to 74-year olds cost 10 times that of 16- to 24-year-olds. The number of older patients admitted for alcohol-related problems was about eight times higher than the number of younger patients admitted.. The report, from the UKs national agency on alcohol misuse, found that overall alcohol-related hospital admissions cost England nearly £2 billion in 2010-2011.. Agency chief Eric Appleby said its a "common perception" in England that young people are responsible for rising alcohol treatment costs, but "our findings show ...

WASHINGTON (CBS.MW) - Costs of keeping a worker on the payroll rose 1 percent in the second quarter, less than the 1.4 percent gain in the first quarter, the Labor Department said Thursday.. Still, employment costs are 4.4 percent higher than in June 1999, the biggest jump since 1991, the government said. The higher costs are offset to some extent by increased productivity of workers.. Wages and salaries for civilian workers rose 1 percent from April to June while benefit costs increased 1.1 percent. In the first quarter, wages rose 1.1 percent and benefits jumped 2 percent.. In private industry, costs rose 1.1 percent in the second quarter on a 1 percent rise in wages and a 1.2 percent increase in benefit costs.. In a separate report, the Commerce Department said new orders for durable goods jumped 10 percent in May, far exceeding the flat reading expected by economists. The surge in demand puts doubt into the theory that the economy is slowing. See full story.. The bond market stumbled on the ...
Whereas there is no known cure, experts agree with early diagnosis and intervention, the characteristics of autism can be greatly minimized and the chance to thrive drastically improves. With increased awareness and advocacy, people can recognize the signs of ASD sooner. Another fact is that treatments, including: occupational, speech, and ABA therapy, with a host of doctors is expensive. The average annual cost to care for a child with ASD is $60,000 with a lifetime cost up to $2.4 million. Hope For Three, a local non profit and autism advocacy group, provides financial help to families in Fort Bend County, with children on the spectrum. With more than 3,000 ASD students in public schools alone, the demand is great.. ...
The burden of disability will grow as a result of the rising number of people living into old age, rather than an increase in ill-health. The study illustrates the huge challenges looming over the health system as the population continues to age. The authors warn that if the shortage of caregivers and the poor state of social care is not addressed now, the impact on people with lower incomes unable to live independently will increase. Currently, 40% of the national cost of long-term care is paid by the savings and incomes of affected individuals and their families. "The societal, economic, and public health implications of our predictions are substantial. In particular, our findings draw attention to the scale of societal costs associated with disability in the coming decade," said lead author Dr Maria Guzman-Castillo, University of Liverpool, UK. "Spending on long-term care will need to increase considerably by 2025, which has serious implications for a cash strapped and overburdened National ...

The early November Annals of Internal Medicine has a literature review on "decremental cost effectiveness" entitled "Much Cheaper, Almost as Good." Authors Nelson et al from Tufts Medical Center point out that in other industries we value products and services that are "good enough," but cost much less. Examples include personal computers (not as good as mainframes), IKEA furniture (painful to assemble, but much less expensive), and the Nano automobile from Tata Motors (sacrificing comfort and safety but costing only about $2,000). However, in health care, we only value the highest quality - regardless of the price. A good example of this was an NPR report this evening about MRIs. They often cost $2000 in the US - and we have the best machines in the world. In Japan, the government-enforced price of an MRI is $120. Is the best image worth this price differential ...

The push to get electric cars on the road is backed by governments and auto makers around the world, but they face a big hurdle: the stubbornly high cost of the giant battery packs, which can account for more than half the cost of an electric vehicle. Both the industry and government are betting that a quick takeoff in electric-car sales will drive down the battery prices. But a number of scientists and automotive engineers believe cost reductions will be hard to come by. Unlike with tires or toasters, battery packs arent likely to enjoy traditional economies of scale as their makers ramp up production, the scientists and engineers say. A123 Systems in Michigan is counting on demand for electric cars despite the steep cost of its battery packs. These experts say increased production of batteries means the price of the key metals used in their manufacture will remain steady or maybe even rise at least in the short term. They also say the price of the electronic parts used in battery packs as ...

Moreover, its not just about diagnosing more patients with PE or deciding who to anticoagulate. Its not even about the very real radiation risks. As crowding becomes the norm in many EDs, many departments operate at full capacity much of the time. At both of the hospitals where I work, the CT scanners run non-stop. So each extra CT means that other patients have to wait for their own CT scans, each of them requiring nursing care, physician attention, and all of the other trappings of being in the department. In the age of ED crowding, everything has an opportunity costs. Crowding leads to overworked nurses, frustrated physicians, and all sorts of bad outcomes, including worse pain management; delays to antibiotics, thrombolytics and PCI; missing quality measures; increased mortality; and decreased patient satisfaction. If an extra CT means 12 patients wait for an extra half hour (my estimate) that means 6 more patient-in-ED-hours, with a conservative estimate of 2% increased mortality for ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper provides new evidence on trade prices based on firm-level data from France. It shows that firms charge higher free-on-board (net of transportation costs, hereafter noted as fob) unit values on exports to more distant countries. This finding holds within firms and products, and across destinations. The price premium paid by distant consumers is due to firms charging higher fob prices, and to higher transportation costs. A simple decomposition of the elasticity of import prices to distance shows that, after a fall in transport costs, almost 80% of the decline in import prices enjoyed by consumers is due to firms charging lower fob prices. This suggests a new channel through which changes in transport costs may affect welfare.

Nancy S. Reau, MD, Donald M. Jensen, MD: Hepatology 2014. A new era of antiviral therapy for hepatitis C holds great promise to finally reign in a public health nightmare, but at what expense? It has been estimated that a 12 week course of therapy could cost in excess of $84,000. Much has been written in the lay press regarding the price of these newer therapies which has led to concerns about the ability of our health care system to effectively implement and deliver these treatments to those in greatest need. Can we justify these costs? To better understand this, it is necessary frame the discussion in the context of the economic burden of chronic liver disease against the retail cost of therapy.. ...

Given that, it is important that you have enough cash readily available to pay for an emergency -- hospitals typically accept credit cards for the hospital stay, but doctors generally are paid in cash. An example of costs for hip replacement after a fall: hospital stay and surgery -- 60,000 pesos (can be paid with credit card -- if NOB credit card, look for one that does not have a foreign transaction fee), surgeon and follow up doctor costs 20,000 pesos (cash), cost of the artificial hip (cash required) 30,000 pesos. The hospital stay cost is on the high end. Keep in mind that many private practice doctors practice at several hospitals, and some are much more economical than others, so be sure and ask ...
It is well known that healthcare costs are extremely high in the United States. When lamenting these costs, however, we often fail to distinguish between individual costs and national expenditures: While both may be
The FTA offered its own cost estimate ranging as high as $13.8 billion, or $5 billion more than the $8.7 billion agreed cost. The FTA seemingly backed off that, even as they noted throughout their own analyses that NJ Transit couldnt contain costs.. NJ Transit has repeatedly shown itself incapable of containing costs. The Secaucus Junction boondoggle was supposed to be $80 million. It ended up being $450 million and serving a fraction of riders guestimated by the agency. Even after finally getting the parking lot it still is on the low end of estimates for ridership.. But even if we stick to a $10 billion price tag, NJ taxpayers would be on the hook for at least $1 billion overruns. The feds only ponied up about $300 million or so, and offered NJ debt financing to cover the rest. If the feds were convinced that the costs could be contained and wanted the project to go ahead, they could have picked up the costs on this interstate project. After all, it was shovel-ready and could have fit the ...
By Patrick Raleigh, ERJ On-line news editor. Paris-Groupe Michelin has posted a 6.7-percent drop in operating income to Euro1143 million, on 2003 sales of Euro15 370 million, 1.8 percent lower than the previous year.. Michelin blamed the lower earnings mainly on a 21-percent surge in raw material costs, which added around Euro320 million to costs. Healthcare, transportation, and currency factors added another Euro200 million to extra costs, said a 24 Feb group statement. The performance equated to an operating margin of 7.4 percent, or 7.7 percent excluding…. ...
Across the entire study, the total follow-up cost for providers (the primary endpoint of the trial) was not different for HM ON vs. OFF (mean €204 vs. €213, respectively), neither was their net profit (€408 vs. €400). For insurers, the total cost per patient (including other physician visits, examinations and hospitalizations) was numerically (but not significantly) lower for HM ON patients, mainly as a result of less hospitalisations and shorter length-of-stay ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! Advances in communication technology make it possible for workers in India to supply business services to head offices located anywhere. This has the potential to put high-wage workers in direct competition with much lower paid Indian workers. Service trade, however, like goods trade, is subject to strong distance effects, implying that the remote supply of services remains limited. We investigate this proposition by deriving a gravity-like equation for service trade and estimating it for a large sample of countries and different categories of service trade. We find that distance costs are high but are declining over time. Our estimates suggest that delivery costs create a significant advantage for local workers relative to competing workers in distant countries.
