BACKGROUND: Systemic agents in cancer treatment were often associated with possible infusion reactions (IRs). This study estimated the incidence of IRs requiring medical intervention and assessed the clinical and economic impacts of IRs in patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) treated with cetuximab. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Details on patients with CRC receiving cetuximab in 2004-2006 were extracted from a large USA administrative claims database. IRs were identified based on the occurrence of outpatient treatment, emergency room (ER) visit, and/or hospitalization for hypersensitivity and allergic reactions. Multivariate regressions were used to examine potential risk factors and quantify the economic impact of IRs. RESULTS: A total of 1122 CRC patients receiving cetuximab were identified. The incidence of IRs requiring medical intervention was 8.4%. Sixty-eight percent of the patients had treatment disruptions and 34% discontinued cetuximab treatment. Mean adjusted costs were $13,863 for cetuximab

In a campaign mailer sent out before the May 2012 Democratic primary, Libertarian-leaning super PAC Liberty for All depicted Travis County Precinct 2 Constable Adan Ballesteros as tainted by illicit funds. One side of the mailer includes two photos — one of armed men guarding a parking lot containing what looks like hundreds of packages of drugs and another of a rolled-up dollar bill, a razor blade and loose white powder. Accompanying text says: "If you knew this was happening in Travis County, would you fight to change it?" Below that, readers are pointed to cocaineconstable.com, an anti-Ballesteros website maintained ...
The present invention relates to a system and method for automated extraction and display of past health care use to aid in predicting future health status. A system and method that converts raw medical and pharmacy claims data into Hierarchical Major Clinical Condition (HMCC) and Place of Treatment (POT) time-series data to facilitate the health assessment of a members total clinical conditions and aid in predicting his or her future health status. The HMCC categories are organized in body systems and likely disease progression to permit both spatio-temporal digital signal processing and the development of a dynamical learning system. Each medical and pharmacy claim of the member is mapped onto one or more HMCC/POT-time cells. At the end of mapping, multiple entries in each HMCC-time cell are accumulated with the temporal resolution determined as a function of group size and temporal fidelity required for model building.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 28.9 million adults had diabetes in 2012 in the US, though many patients are undiagnosed or not managing their condition. This study provides US national and state estimates of insured adults with type 2 diabetes who are diagnosed, receiving exams and medication, managing glycemic levels, with diabetes complications, and their health expenditures. Such information can be used for benchmarking and to identify gaps in diabetes detection and management. The study combines analysis of survey data with medical claims analysis for the commercially insured, Medicare, and Medicaid populations to estimate the number of adults with diagnosed type 2 diabetes and undiagnosed diabetes by insurance type, age, and sex. Medical claims analysis used the 2012 de-identified Normative Health Information database covering a nationally representative commercially insured population, the 2011 Medicare 5% Sample, and the 2008 Medicaid Mini-Max. Among insured adults

BACKGROUND: Wide variations exist in price and quality for health-care services, but the link between price and quality remains uncertain. OBJECTIVE: This paper used claims data from a large commercially insured population to assess the association between both procedure- and provider-level prices and complication rates for three common outpatient surgical services. DESIGN: This is a retrospective cohort study. SETTING: The study used medical claims data from commercial health plans between 2009 and 2013 for three outpatient surgical services-joint arthroscopy, cataract surgery, and colonoscopy. MAIN MEASURES: For each procedure, price was assessed as the sum of patient, employer, and insurer spending. Complications were identified using existing algorithms specific to each service. Multivariate regressions were used to risk-adjust prices and complication rates. Provider-level price and complication rates were compared by calculating standardized differences that compared provider risk-adjusted ...
Hippocrates (460-370 BC), a Greek physician often referred to as the "Father of Modern Medicine", is famously believed to have recommended: "Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food." However, with its now almost total reliance on the use of drugs, the practice of medicine today has essentially forgotten the age-old wisdom of these words. Worse still, at the international level, strict regulations on nutrition and health claims - such as those based on the standards and guidelines contained in the so-called Codex Alimentarius - are increasingly preventing consumers from being told the facts about the beneficial properties of foods.. Consider the results of a study published in 2016, for example, which found that a simple combination of garlic and lemon juice reduces cholesterol levels and improves blood pressure. Carried out by researchers from Iran in the form of a randomized clinical controlled trial, the study involved a total of 112 people diagnosed with moderate hyperlipidemia. A ...
Hi everything. Thank you for taking the time to read this. My father is currently applying for Disability... At this point hes just waiting on a response to his application.

The HCSA pays out only on the balance remaining after all other insurance plans have paid out. That includes your basic plan, your spouses plan, and provincial plans. On the top right hand corner of the Supplementary Healthcare claim form you are asked to select whether any portion of the expense should be paid from the HCSA. It is very important that you clearly identify how you would like your expenses paid. Some things to remember about submitting your claim are:. ...

Posted: August 8, 2012 , Author: Gene Steuerle , Filed under: Columns, Health and Health Policy ,28 Comments » In their article "Doctor Shortage Likely to Worsen with Health Law," Annie Lowrey and Robert Pear report on claims of a future shortfall in the number of doctors. I was thinking about this recently when, for the first time ever, a dermatologist offered to have a nurse perform my checkup. In all likelihood, this nurse did as good a job as the doctor, perhaps even better; she certainly took more time. Im sure she got paid less, though Im not sure that costs passed along to the insurance company were any lower.. Is there really a doctor shortage? Or does the Lowrey-Pear article reveal one of the major problems with health care in this country: that if this were any normal industry or market, nurses and other providers would be competing with doctors to fill needs and provide services at a lower cost.. Despite its title, the article actually cites professionals making three different ...

Reports suggest that the Medicaid population includes a higher percentage of smokers than the general population. A high prevalence of smokers in a population is likely to lead to a higher burden of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Few studies have evaluated the economic burden of COPD in a Medicaid population. The objective of this observational, retrospective cohort study is to estimate the economic burden of COPD in subjects with a COPD diagnosis who are enrolled in Medicaid and are receiving maintenance treatment covered by Medicaid.. Specifically, the null hypothesis for the primary outcome measure is that no difference is observed in all-cause costs between subjects with and without COPD. The test hypothesis is that there is a difference in all-cause costs between subjects with and without COPD.. Secondary outcomes to be evaluated include all-cause resource use and COPD-related costs for the COPD cohort.. The study uses a medical and pharmacy administrative claims database ...
INTRODUCTION: Studies indicate similar survival and toxicity between pazopanib and sunitinib, but few have examined real-world outcomes among elderly patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC). The purpose of this retrospective claims analysis was to assess real-world overall survival (OS), healthcare resource utilization (HRU), and healthcare costs (both all-cause and associated with RCC diagnosis) among elderly advanced RCC patients starting pazopanib or sunitinib treatment. METHODS: Advanced RCC patients aged 65 years or older who started first-line treatment with pazopanib or sunitinib (index drug; the initiation date was the index date) were identified from the 100% Medicare database plus Part D linkage (January 1, 2006 to December 31, 2014 ...

The medical expenditures associated with diabetes in general and by diabetes treatment mode among U.S. youth are less known. Using administrative claims data from ,3 million youth, we estimated that the excess mean total medical expenditure associated with diabetes among youth was $7,593 per year. Estimated mean annual total medical expenditures were $9,333 for ITDM youth and $5,683 for NITDM youth, an excess of $3,650 for those with ITDM. Our ITDM group included all youth with type 1 diabetes but probably also some with type 2. Youth with NITDM most likely have type 2 diabetes (4,22-25), therefore, our estimated medical expenditures for NITDM youth likely represent a lower bound for youth with type 2 diabetes receiving medications in the U.S.. We found that excess expenditures on prescription drugs contributed the most to the total excess medical expenditures associated with diabetes in youth. This contrasts with findings for the entire diabetic population, where hospitalization or inpatient ...
