Has the National Health Insurance improved the inequality in the use of tertiary-care hospitals in Korea?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractBackground To improve financial protection against catastrophic illness, the Korean government expanded the benefit coverage of the National Health Insurance (NHI) for cancer patients in 2005. This paper examined whether the policy has reduced income-inequality in the use of tertiary care hospitals. Methods We evaluated the effect of the policy on income-inequalities in outpatient visits and inpatient admissions to tertiary care hospitals, based on triple difference estimators. Using nationwide claims data of the NHI from 2002 to 2010, we compared cancer patients as a treatment group with liver disease and cardio-cerebrovascular disease as control groups and the lower-income with the highest-income group. Results Before the introduction of the policy, lower-income cancer patients utilized less inpatient and outpatient services in tertiary care hospitals than high-income patients did. After the benefit coverage was expanded, while the incidence and total number of inpatient admissions to tertiary care hospitals increased among cancer patients compared with liver diseases, lower-income cancer patients experienced a greater increase than those of higher-income did compared with both diseases. The use of outpatient services increased more in cancer patients than those of both diseases; however, the gap between the highest- and the lowest-income rarely decreased, except the incidence of visits when compared to liver disease. Conclusion Our findings indicated that the expanded NHI benefits coverage partially improved income-related inequalities in inpatient admissions to tertiary-care hospital, but not in outpatient visits.

...Hospital Association, and consumer groups such as the American Association of Retired Persons, initiated an effort now called the Hospital Quality Alliance (HQA) to fill this gap. Under the HQA, hospitals nationwide report data to the CMS on indicators of the quality of care for acute myocardial infarction... This study examined hospitals' performance on standardized measures of the quality of care for acute myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, and pneumonia. The quality of care varied among hospitals. Hospitals' performance on the measures for myocardial infarction and congestive heart failure was not closely correlated with performance on the pneumonia measure, suggesting that efforts to monitor the quality of care may need to include a wide range of medical conditions.

This analysis of Medicare data suggests that 13% of patients are readmitted to the hospital within 30 days after major surgery. Readmission rates vary across hospitals and correlate with surgical volume and surgical mortality, two measures of surgical quality.

The development of differences in hospital costs accross income groups in Finland from 1998 to 2010  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractObjective To quantify differences in hospital costs between socioeconomic groups and the development over time. Methods Register data on somatic specialised hospital admissions for patients aged between 25 and 84 in Finland in 1998–2010 were used with income data individually linked to them. The cost of an admission was calculated by multiplying the number of a patient's inpatient days by the inpatient day cost of the patient's DRG. We calculated age-standardised admission costs per resident and per user as well as costs per inpatient day and concentration indices separately for men and women. Results Hospital admission costs reduced with increasing income. The difference between the extreme income quintiles was more than 50% throughout the study period, and this difference widened. However, the cost per inpatient day was more than 20% higher in the highest income group. The differences between income groups were the most prominent in disease categories involving surgery. Conclusions The growth between socioeconomic groups in hospital costs is presumably mainly due to increasing differences in morbidity. More attention needs to be paid to prevention of health inequalities and access to and content of primary care among low-income groups in order to decrease the need for hospitalisations.

Hepatitis B and C status among health care workers in the five main hospitals in eastern Libya  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Summary The aim of the present study was to determine the frequency of hepatitis B and C transmission to health care workers (HCWs) in five major hospitals in eastern Libya and to analyze how the risk of these infections are affected by the type of occupation, hospital work place and working period. From July 2008 to June 2009, 601 \\{HCWs\\} (mean age: 32.90 ± 8.85 years) were tested for HBV and HCV markers using ELISA techniques. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was performed on all positive samples of \\{HBsAg\\} and Anti-HCV antibody to determine the level of HBV-DNA and HCV-RNA viremia, respectively. The overall frequency of \\{HBsAg\\} positivity was 1.8%. Anti-HBc, \\{HBeAg\\} and Anti-HBe antibodies were found in 8.5%, 0.7% and 8.0% of samples, respectively. The HBV-DNA level was positive in 55% of all HBsAg-positive samples. Approximately half of the \\{HCWs\\} (51.4%) were Anti-HBs antibody positive. The overall positivity rate of Anti-HCV antibodies was 2.0%, and HCV-RNA was positive in 33.3% of these samples. Overall, 52% of \\{HCWs\\} reported receiving full vaccination doses (three doses) against HBV infection. Among them, anti-HBs positivity was approximately 98.0%. 3.9% of those who never received any HBV vaccination dose were \\{HBsAg\\} positive, compared to 1.3% \\{HBsAg\\} positive in those \\{HCWs\\} who had received one or two doses of hepatitis B vaccine (p = 0.01 for all comparisons). Nurses and nurse-aides had the highest rates of both \\{HBsAg\\} and Anti-HCV among the studied \\{HCWs\\} (HBsAg: 2.1% and 3.2%; Anti-HCV: 3.2% and 4.9%, respectively). It is noteworthy that doctors also had a relatively high prevalence rate of Anti-HCV (2.2%). Obstetric wards, isolation room, dialysis units and dentist work places had higher frequencies of HBV. HCV was found to be higher in the medical and surgical wards (the prevalence varied between 3% and 5.6%). There was no significant difference between \\{HBsAg\\} status and the work period of HCWs. In conclusion, universal precautions should be applied for the care of all patients by all HCWs. Further, HBV vaccines should be more readily available for Libyan \\{HCWs\\} by reinforcing current vaccination programs.

Competition on the Hospital Sector  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This article is about the role of competition in the health care sector. It concentrates on competition amongst hospitals for fixed budgets. The literature supports the argument that with fixed prices hospitals will compete on quality dimensions, and quality of output will increase. Under variable prices, competition can lead to chiseling of output quality. The evidence, at least with respect to the UK, shows that competition need not have an adverse effect on equity of access to health care.

Payment reform and changes in health care in China  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper is intended to assess the primary effects on cost, utilization and quality of care from payment reform of capitation and open enrollment in Changde city, Hunan Province of China. Open enrollment policy was introduced to deal with possible cream skimming associated with capitation. Based on the longitudinal Urban Resident Basic Medical Insurance (URBMI) Household Survey, this study analyses the URBMI data through a set of regression models. The original data included over five thousand inpatient admissions during the study period between 2008 and 2010. The study finds the payment reform to reduce its inpatient out-of-pocket cost by 19.7%, out-of-pocket ratio by 9.5%, and length of stay by 17.7%. However, the total inpatient cost, drug cost ratio, treatment effect, and patient satisfaction showed little difference between Fee-For-Service and capitation models. We conclude that the payment reform in Changde did not reduce overall inpatient expenditure, but it decreased the financial risk and length of stay of inpatient patients without compromising quality of care. The findings would contribute to the health care payment literatures from developing countries and open further research tracks on the ability of open enrollment to compensate for capitation drawbacks.

These data were collected with the 2007 Commercial Building Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS). See the 2007 CBECS Large Hospital Building Methodology Report for details. Why are you publishing estimates only for large hospitals and not the rest of the commercial building population? A majority of the 2007 CBECS buildings were sampled from a frame that used a less expensive experimental method to update the 2003 frame for new construction. After careful analysis, EIA determined that the buildings sampled from this experimental frame were not representative of the commercial building population and therefore the 2007 CBECS sample as a

Management of medical technology in a paediatric hospital  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Unlike manufacturing companies that produce particular goods, hospitals must offer and deliver the highest quality of care possible to their customers, the patients and families. Although manufacturers must produce high quality products and/or services (to remain in business), the healthcare industry's failure to offer quality care can lead to life threatening consequences. The healthcare industry is undergoing a rapid process of reengineering that will lead to an integration of clinical and management technologies. This will require a radical redesign of hospital systems to create seamless healthcare delivery processes and a leadership with a strong customer orientation. To promote the concept of management of medical technology, a process that incorporates a multidisciplinary approach may help overcome the preconceived negative feelings regarding management of the hospital's technology.

Rebuilding it Better: Greensburg, Kansas, Kiowa County Memorial Hospital (Brochure) (Revised)  

Broader source: Energy.gov (indexed) [DOE]

Kiowa County Memorial Hospital Kiowa County Memorial Hospital The original Kiowa County Hospital was destroyed in the tornado and rebuilt green. In fact, the hospital's design team took one of the most energy-intensive building types and designed a first-of-its kind energy-efficient hospital, while still meeting functional and safety requirements. The 50,000 square-foot building includes 15 acute-care beds, rural health and specialty clinics, an emergency department with two trauma rooms, physical/occu- pational therapy and radiology departments, a laboratory, and other support areas. The new hospital in Greensburg is projected to achieve more than 40% energy savings when compared to a hospital built to standard code thanks to features such as an on-site wind turbine.

Bullfrog Care Bullfrog Care Name: Susan Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: My son Noah, 9, has a bullfrog that he acquired from a catfish pond just outside of Cape Girardeau, MO. He brought it back to SD after a trip to relatives in Oct., 1999. The frog lives in an acquarium in Noah's bedroom. We feed him crickets (dozen at a time) 1 to 2 times per week. We change his water weekly (about 1 inch.) He has a foam pad and a couple smooth big rocks he sits on. We keep the acquarium light on him during the daytime, for warmth. Two days ago, he did not eat his crickets in his usual gobble em up fashion. This evening, we noticed brown spots on his otherwise greenish brown skin. Noah is wondering if he has "frog pox." His father and I are wondering if he is sick. What do you recommend? We can't let him go in the winter. Noah is devoted to keeping him as a pet, so we have a commitment here. Thank you for any help you might give us.

Carotid intima-media thickness is associated with incidence of hospitalized atrial fibrillation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractObjective Carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) is a measure of arterial thickening and a risk predictor for myocardial infarction and stroke. It is unclear whether IMT also predicts atrial fibrillation (AF). We explored the association between IMT and incidence of first AF hospitalization in a population-based cohort. Methods IMT was measured in 4846 subjects from the general population (aged 46–68 years, 60% women) without a history of AF, heart failure or myocardial infarction. The Swedish in-patient register was used for retrieval of AF cases. IMT was studied in relation to incidence of AF. Results During a mean follow-up of 15.3 years, 353 subjects (181 men, 172 women, 4.8 per 1000 person-years) were hospitalized with a diagnosis of AF. After adjustment for cardiovascular risk factors, the hazard ratio (HR) for incidence of AF was 1.61 (95% confidence interval (CI): 1.14–2.27) for 4th vs. 1st quartile of IMT in the common carotid artery. This relationship was also independent of occurrence of carotid plaque. The results were similar for IMT in the bifurcation. Conclusion Carotid IMT was independently associated with incidence of hospitalized AF in this study of middle-aged subjects from the general population. The results suggest that arterial thickening can predict future AF.

Determinants of Hospital's Financial Liquidity  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The purpose of the articles is to identify key factors that may affect the level of hospital's liquidity ratio. We’ve posed four research hypotheses, assuming that, the level of financial liquidity in hospitals depends on several factors (number of beds, annual income per bed, profitability ratios, debt ratio). We’ve found that: 1) there is a positive relationship between debt ratio and liquidity and profitability ratio and liquidity 2) the relationship between the size of the hospital and the financial liquidity is not statistically significant. In the study we’ve use statistical tools: Pearson's correlation coefficient, T-Student's test with Cohran-Cox's correction.

Baseline screening tools as indicators for symptom outcomes and health services utilization in a collaborative care model for depression in primary care: a practice-based observational study  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractObjective Within a practice-based collaborative care program for depression, we examined associations between positive baseline screens for comorbid mental and behavioral health problems, depression remission and utilization after 1 year. Methods This observational study of 1507 depressed adults examined baseline screens for hazardous drinking (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test score?8), severe anxiety (Generalized Anxiety Disorder 7-item score ?15) and bipolar disorder [Mood Disorders Questionnaire (MDQ) positive screen]; 6-month depression remission; primary care, psychiatric, emergency department (ED) and inpatient visits 1 year postbaseline; and multiple covariates. Analyses included logistic and zero-inflated negative binomial regression. Results At unadjusted baseline, 60.7% had no positive screens beyond depression, 31.5% had one (mostly severe anxiety), 6.6% had two and 1.2% had all three. In multivariate models, positive screens reduced odds of remission versus no positive screens [e.g., one screen odds ratio (OR)=0.608, p=.000; all three OR=0.152, p=.018]. Screening positive for severe anxiety predicted more postbaseline visits of all types; severe anxiety plus hazardous drinking predicted greater primary care, ED and inpatient; severe anxiety plus MDQ and the combination of all three positive screens both predicted greater psychiatric visits (all p<.05). Regression-adjusted utilization patterns varied across combinations of positive screens. Conclusions Positive screens predicted lower remission. Severe anxiety and its combinations with other positive screens were common and generally predicted greater utilization. Practices may benefit from assessing collaborative care patients presenting with these screening patterns to determine resource allocation.

Using Same-Hospital Readmission Rates to Estimate All-Hospital Readmission Rates  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Background Since October of 2012, Medicare's Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program has fined 2,200 hospitals a total of $500 million. Although the program penalizes readmission to any hospital, many institutions can only track readmissions to their own hospitals. We sought to determine the extent to which same-hospital readmission rates can be used to estimate all-hospital readmission rates after major surgery. Study Design We evaluated 3,940 hospitals treating 741,656 Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries undergoing CABG, hip fracture repair, or colectomy between 2006 and 2008. We used hierarchical logistic regression to calculate risk- and reliability-adjusted rates of 30-day readmission to the same hospital and to any hospital. We next evaluated the correlation between same-hospital and all-hospital rates. To analyze the impact on hospital profiling, we compared rankings based on same-hospital rates with those based on all-hospital rates. Results The mean risk- and reliability-adjusted all-hospital readmission rate was 13.2% (SD 1.5%) and mean same-hospital readmission rate was 8.4% (SD 1.1%). Depending on the operation, between 57% (colectomy) and 63% (CABG) of hospitals were reclassified when profiling was based on same-hospital readmission rates instead of on all-hospital readmission rates. This was particularly pronounced in the middle 3 quintiles, where 66% to 73% of hospitals were reclassified. Conclusions In evaluating hospital profiling under Medicare's Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program, same-hospital rates provide unstable estimates of all-hospital readmission rates. To better anticipate penalties, hospitals require novel approaches for accurately tracking the totality of their postoperative readmissions.

Informal payments for health care services: The case of Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper analyzes patterns of tips, gifts and bribes paid by patients for health care services. Informal payments are more prevalent in developing and transition countries because the economic and socio-cultural environment is more conducive to “gifts”-exchange as a means to maintain the underfunded health care system. Moreover, most Eastern European countries have experienced wider socio-political reforms, which have also affected health care service provision and have led to a greater reliance on informal patient payments in the access and quality assurance of health care services. This study provides evidence on public attitudes and recent experiences with informal patient payments in post-Soviet and post-communist countries, namely in Lithuania, Ukraine and Poland. The empirical results suggest a lower share of informal patient payments as well as a prevalence of more negative attitudes towards informal patient payments in Poland compared to Lithuania and Ukraine. Informal payments are more common and more expensive for in-patient health care services in contrast to out-patient ones in all countries. Still, in post-Soviet Lithuania and Ukraine informal patient payments co-exist with other types of patient payments such as quasi-formal patient payments. When clear regulation of the basic package and formal patient charges is lacking, patients experience a mixture of payment obligations. About three quarters of the respondents support the statement that informal patient payments should be eradicated. It is proposed therefore that governments of the countries should meet public expectations and implement a strategy to deal with informal patient payments. In all three countries, informal patient payments (both “bribes and fees”) are a symptom of system failure and provide a means for patients to obtain the health care they desire, which the government is not able to guarantee. Suitable regulations coupled with (dis)incentives may decrease the level of informal payments for health care provision.

Capital budgeting practices in hospitals  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We interviewed chief financial officers from hospitals and healthcare systems in Michigan regarding selected capital budgeting practices that have not been previously considered in the literature. Results revealed a variety of approaches in the development and deployment of capital budgets. Most healthcare systems used a blend of board and department-initiated input into budget development, usually with interaction between the two. The majority of healthcare systems had flexibility in the deployment of their capital budgets over time. Standard methods of project evaluation were employed by healthcare CFOs, but few used the most sophisticated tools. A host of constraints, including certificate-of-need laws and internal, mission-based motivations uniquely affect capital budgeting of not-for-profit healthcare systems. Clearly, future research will be need to understand why organisations have selected capital budgeting practices and the extent to which selection and use of capital budgeting practices matters in the efficiency and viability of healthcare systems.

Letter to the Editor : Rapidly-deployed small tent hospitals: lessons from the earthquake in Haiti.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The damage to medical facilities resulting form the January 2010 earthquake in haiti necessitated the establishment of field tent hospitals. Much of the local medical infrastructure was destroyed or limited operationally when the Fast Israel Rescue and Search Team (FIRST) arrived in Haiti shortly after the January 2010 earthquake. The FIRST deployed small tent hospitals in Port-au-Prince and in 11 remote areas outside of the city. Each tent was set up in less than a half hour. The tents were staffed with an orthopedic surgeon, gynecologists, primary care and emergency care physicians, a physician with previous experience in tropical medicine, nurses, paramedics, medics, and psychologists. The rapidly deployable and temporary nature of the effort allowed the team to treat and educate, as well as provide supplies for, thousands of refugees throughout Haiti. In addition, a local Haitian physician and his team created a small tent hospital to serve the Petion Refugee Camp and its environs. FIRST personnel also took shifts at this hospital.

Weeding The question of weeding is really just a matter of aesthetics. You do not have to weed your parcel. If your parcel is a large one, weeding may not even be practical. Although the "weed" species will dominate your parcel for the first few years, they will give way to the native plant species. You can liken the native plants to long distance runners; they appear to start off slowly, but end up winning the ecological race. After all, they are the plants that are genetically-suited and adapted to growing in this environment. The native prairie plants will be developing extensive root structure the

The impact of medicare capital prospective payment regulation on hospital capital expenditures  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Our study examines the impact of the capital prospective payment system (CPPS), implemented by Medicare in 1991, on capital expenditures and cost-effective behavior of non-proprietary hospitals. As noted in the paper, we use audited financial statement data for a large national sample of hospitals. Univariate analyses demonstrate a statistically significant decline in capital expenditures in the years following the CPPS regulation without significant changes in relative aggregate operating expenses. These preliminary findings suggest that CPPS induces some cost-effective behavior by hospital managers. Ordinary least-squares (OLS) regressions indicate that capital expenditures before and after CPPS are differently affected by the changes in most explanatory variables. Further OLS regressions indicate that high-cost (low-cost) hospitals decrease (increase) capital expenditures following CPPS, once other factors are controlled for. Managerial accounting implications for hospitals include the effect of the regulation on capital budgeting decisions. Greater accounting disclosure may be necessary so that alternative modes of coping with the regulation can be discerned. Policymakers and regulators should also be aware that although reductions in capital expenditures may have favorable short-term effects of reducing health care costs, a potentially negative public health impact may result if capital expenditures continue to decrease.

Mental health care delivery system reform in Belgium: The challenge of achieving deinstitutionalisation whilst addressing fragmentation of care at the same time  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Most mental health care delivery systems in welfare states currently face two major issues: deinstitutionalisation and fragmentation of care. Belgium is in the process of reforming its mental health care delivery system with the aim of simultaneously strengthening community care and improving integration of care. The new policy model attempts to strike a balance between hospitals and community services, and is based on networks of services. We carried out a content analysis of the policy blueprint for the reform and performed an ex-ante evaluation of its plan of operation, based on the current knowledge of mental health service networks. When we examined the policy's multiple aims, intermediate goals, suggested tools, and their articulation, we found that it was unclear how the new policy could achieve its goals. Indeed, deinstitutionalisation and integration of care require different network structures, and different modes of governance. Furthermore, most of the mechanisms contained within the new policy were not sufficiently detailed. Consequently, three major threats to the effectiveness of the reform were identified. These were: issues concerning the relationship between network structure and purpose, the continued influence of hospitals despite the goal of deinstitutionalisation, and the heterogeneity in the actual implementation of the new policy.

Chapter 7 - The Role of Clinical Engineers in Hospitals  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The appropriate deployment of technology contributes to the improvement in the quality of healthcare, the containment of cost, and to increased access to services. The traditional role of the clinical engineer repairing and maintaining devices has evolved to now include the equally important role of supporting and optimizing the use of healthcare technology. This chapter is an overview of the activities undertaken by clinical engineers. These activities are grouped under two headings: supporting and advancing care, and healthcare technology management. Clinical engineering activity within hospitals should be balanced to include both the management of the healthcare technology itself and also the support for the clinicians who use the technology in clinical practice. The supporting and advancing care and healthcare technology management roles can be considered the pillars of any clinical engineering service. However, it is important to recognize and acknowledge at all times that these roles are complementary and are tightly integrated in practice. With knowledge of the engineering, physics, and system science underpinning electro-medical devices and systems, and experience gained in working collaboratively in the clinical environment, clinical engineers play an important role in ensuring positive outcomes for patients arising from the use of technology and reducing negative ones.

Wheelchair cleaning and disinfection in Canadian health care facilities: “That's wheelie gross!”  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Background Wheelchairs are complex equipment that come in close contact with individuals at increased risk of transmitting and acquiring antibiotic-resistant organisms and health care–associated infection. The purpose of this study was to determine the status of wheelchair cleaning and disinfection in Canadian health care facilities. Methods Acute care hospitals (ACHs), chronic care hospitals (CCHs), and long-term care facilities (LTCFs) were contacted and the individual responsible for oversight of wheelchair cleaning and disinfection was identified. A structured interview was conducted that focused on current practices and concerns, barriers to effective wheelchair cleaning and disinfection, and potential solutions. Results Interviews were completed at 48 of the 54 facilities contacted (89%), including 18 ACHs, 16 CCHs, and 14 LTCFs. Most (n = 24) facilities had 50-200 in-house wheelchairs. Respondents were very concerned about wheelchair cleaning as an infection control issue. Specific concerns included the lack of reliable systems for tracking and identifying dirty and clean wheelchairs (71%, 34/48), failure to clean and disinfect wheelchairs between patients (52%, 25/48), difficulty cleaning cushions (42%, 20/48), lack of guidelines (35%, 27/48), continued use of visibly soiled wheelchairs (29%, 14/48) and lack of resources (25%, 12/48). Conclusion Our results suggest that wheelchair cleaning and disinfection is not optimally performed at many Canadian hospitals and LTCFs. Specific guidance on wheelchair cleaning and disinfection is necessary.

National Medical Care System May Impede Fostering of True Specialization of Radiation Oncologists: Study Based on Structure Survey in Japan  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Purpose: To evaluate the actual work environment of radiation oncologists (ROs) in Japan in terms of working pattern, patient load, and quality of cancer care based on the relative time spent on patient care. Methods and Materials: In 2008, the Japanese Society of Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology produced a questionnaire for a national structure survey of radiation oncology in 2007. Data for full-time ROs were crosschecked with data for part-time ROs by using their identification data. Data of 954 ROs were analyzed. The relative practice index for patients was calculated as the relative value of care time per patient on the basis of Japanese Blue Book guidelines (200 patients per RO). Results: The working patterns of RO varied widely among facility categories. ROs working mainly at university hospitals treated 189.2 patients per year on average, with those working in university hospitals and their affiliated facilities treating 249.1 and those working in university hospitals only treating 144.0 patients per year on average. The corresponding data were 256.6 for cancer centers and 176.6 for other facilities. Geographically, the mean annual number of patients per RO per quarter was significantly associated with population size, varying from 143.1 to 203.4 (p < 0.0001). There were also significant differences in the average practice index for patients by ROs working mainly in university hospitals between those in main and affiliated facilities (1.07 vs 0.71: p < 0.0001). Conclusions: ROs working in university hospitals and their affiliated facilities treated more patients than the other ROs. In terms of patient care time only, the quality of cancer care in affiliated facilities might be worse than that in university hospitals. Under the current national medical system, working patterns of ROs of academic facilities in Japan appear to be problematic for fostering true specialization of radiation oncologists.

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The purpose of this demonstration project is to quantify the energy savings and water efficiency potential of commercial laundry wastewater recycling systems and low-temperature detergent supply systems to help promote the adoption of these technologies in the commercial sector. This project will create a set of technical specifications for efficient multi-load laundry systems (both new and retrofit) tailored for specific applications and/or sectors (e.g., hospitality, health care). The specifications will be vetted with the appropriate Better Buildings Alliance (BBA) members (e.g., Commercial Real Estate Energy Alliance, Hospital Energy Alliance), finalized, published, and disseminated to enable widespread technology transfer in the industry and specifically among BBA partners.

Economic growth and the geographic maldistribution of health care resources: Evidence from China, 1949-2010  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The geographic maldistribution of health care resources is one of the most persistent characteristics of health care systems around the world. Based on China’s provincial-level panel data in 1949-2010, this paper empirically investigates whether the geographic distribution of health care resources is convergent or divergent in the long run and whether the rapid economic growth contributes to reducing the regional disparity in health care resources in China. Using a dynamic convergence model that controls unobserved provincial heterogeneity and spatial dependence, the empirical results provide much support for ?-convergence in that the provinces with lower initial values of health care resources, including the densities of physicians and hospital beds, are seen to grow faster and to catch up with the provinces with higher initial stocks. In addition, we find that GDP per capita has a significant and non-linear impact on the convergence rate of health care resources, providing support for a Kuznets curve in China’s health sector. That is, the inequality in the distribution of health care resources follows an inverted “U” shape as income increases over time. An important implication of our study is that economic growth per se provides a built-in stabilizer to mitigate health inequality through the convergence of health care resources across regions in the long run.

Value increasing business model for e-hospital  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper developed a business value increasing model for electronic hospital (e-hospital) based on electronic value chain analysis. From this model, 58 hospital electronic business (e-business) solutions were developed. Additionally, this paper investigated the adoption patterns of these 58 e-business solutions within six US leading hospitals. The findings show that only 36 of 58 or 62% of the e-business solutions are fully or partially implemented within the six hospitals. Ultimately, the research results will be beneficial to managers and executives for accelerating e-business adoptions for e-hospital.

Health Care Financing in Ethiopia: Implications on Access to Essential Medicines  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractBackground The Ethiopian health care system is under tremendous reform. One of the issues high on the agenda is health care financing. In an effort to protect citizens from catastrophic effects of the clearly high share of out-of-pocket expenditure, the government is currently working to introduce health insurance. Objective This article aims to highlight the components of the Ethiopian health care financing reform and discuss its implications on access to essential medicines. Methods A desk review of government policy documents and proclamations was done. Moreover, a review of the scientific literature was done via PubMed and search of other local journals not indexed in PubMed. Results Revenue retention by health facilities, systematizing the fee waiver system, standardizing exemption services, outsourcing of nonclinical services, user fee setting and revision, initiation of compulsory health insurance (community-based health insurance and social health insurance), establishment of a private wing in public hospitals, and health facility autonomy were the main components of the health care financing reform in Ethiopia. Although limited, the evidence shows that there is increased health care utilization, access to medicines, and quality of services as a result of the reforms. Conclusions Encouraging progress has been made in the implementation of health care financing reforms in Ethiopia. However, there is shortage of evidence on the effect of the health care financing reforms on access to essential medicines in the country. Thus, a clear need exists for well-organized research on the issue.

Treatment planning can help to assure the individual’s experience of care as individualized and person-centered, but this must be understood in the context of the service delivery system. Topics include the meaning of person-centeredness, whole health and mental health/primary care integration, shared decision making, the Wagner care model, health care reform, medical necessity, workforce challenges and trauma-informed care.

Variation in the costs of dying and the role of different health services, socio-demographic characteristics, and preceding health care expenses  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The health care costs of population ageing are for an important part attributable to higher mortality rates in combination with high costs of dying. This paper answers three questions that remain unanswered regarding the costs of dying: (1) contributions of different health services to the costs of dying; (2) variation in the costs of dying; and (3) the influence of preceding health care expenses on the costs of dying. We retrieved data on 61,495 Dutch subjects aged 65 and older from July 2007 through 2010 from a regional health care insurer. We included all deceased subjects of whom health care expenses were known for 26 months prior to death (n = 2833). Costs of dying were defined as health care expenses made in the last six months before death. Lorenz curves, generalized linear models and a two-part model were used for our analyses. (1) The average costs of dying are €25,919. Medical care contributes to 57% of this total, and long-term care 43%. The costs of dying mainly relate to hospital care (40%). (2) In the costs of dying, 75% is attributable to the costliest half of the population. For medical care, this distribution figure is 86%, and for long-term care 92%. Age and preceding expenses are significant determinants of this variation in the costs of dying. (3) Overall, higher preceding health care expenses are associated with higher costs of dying, indicating that the costs of dying are higher for those with a longer patient history. To summarize, there is not a large variation in the costs of dying, but there are large differences in the nature of these costs. Before death, the oldest old utilize more long-term care while their younger counterparts visit hospitals more often. To curb the health care costs of population ageing, a further understanding of the costs of dying is crucial.

Hospital ventilation standards and energy conservation: chemical contamination of hospital air. Final report  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In an era of increasing energy conservation consciousness, a critical reassessment of the validity of hospital ventilation and thermal standards is made. If current standards are found to be excessively conservative, major energy conservation measures could be undertaken by rebalancing and/or modification of current HVAC systems. To establish whether or not reducing ventilation rates would increase airborne chemical contamination to unacceptable levels, a field survey was conducted to develop an inventory and dosage estimates of hospital generated airborne chemical contaminants to which patients, staff, and visitors are exposed. The results of the study are presented. Emphasis is on patient exposure, but an examination of occupational exposure was also made. An in-depth assessment of the laboratory air environment is documented. Housekeeping products used in survey hospitals, hazardous properties of housekeeping chemicals and probable product composition are discussed in the appendices.

Integrating hospital information systems: a bottom-up approach  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The growing complexity of hospital information systems has prompted information systems managers to seek applicable solutions for integrating their systems. While many successful applications of information systems have been introduced and implemented in the hospital environment, the integration of heterogeneous applications in existing, multi-vendor, computing environments into a cohesive hospital-wide information system has proved to be complicated and difficult to accomplish. This paper discusses systems integration in hospitals and presents a conceptual framework for bottom-up integration of hospital information systems. The scope of the proposed framework is the integration of stand-alone clinical, administrative and financial information elements of a hospital into a unified system environment with a central medical data warehouse.

National Medical Care System May Impede Fostering of True Specialization of Radiation Oncologists: Study Based on Structure Survey in Japan  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Purpose To evaluate the actual work environment of radiation oncologists (ROs) in Japan in terms of working pattern, patient load, and quality of cancer care based on the relative time spent on patient care. Methods and Materials In 2008, the Japanese Society of Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology produced a questionnaire for a national structure survey of radiation oncology in 2007. Data for full-time \\{ROs\\} were crosschecked with data for part-time \\{ROs\\} by using their identification data. Data of 954 \\{ROs\\} were analyzed. The relative practice index for patients was calculated as the relative value of care time per patient on the basis of Japanese Blue Book guidelines (200 patients per RO). Results The working patterns of RO varied widely among facility categories. \\{ROs\\} working mainly at university hospitals treated 189.2 patients per year on average, with those working in university hospitals and their affiliated facilities treating 249.1 and those working in university hospitals only treating 144.0 patients per year on average. The corresponding data were 256.6 for cancer centers and 176.6 for other facilities. Geographically, the mean annual number of patients per RO per quarter was significantly associated with population size, varying from 143.1 to 203.4 (p Japan appear to be problematic for fostering true specialization of radiation oncologists.

Do service innovations influence the adoption of electronic health records in long-term care organizations? Results from the U.S. National Survey of Residential Care Facilities  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractObjective Healthcare organizations including residential care facilities (RCFs) are diversifying their services to meet market demands. Service innovations have been linked to the changes in the way that healthcare organizations organize their work. The objective of this study is to explore the relationship between organizational service innovations and Electronic Health Record (EHR) adoption in the RCFs. Methods We used the data from the 2010 National Survey of Residential Care Facilities conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The outcome was whether an RCF adopted EHR or not, and the predictors were the organizational service innovations including provision of skilled nursing care and medication review. We also added facility characteristics as control variables. Weighted multivariate logistic regressions were used to estimate the relationship between service innovation factors and EHR adoption in the RCFs. Results In 2010, about 17.4% of the \\{RCFs\\} were estimated to use EHR. Multivariate analysis showed that \\{RCFs\\} employing service innovations were more likely to adopt EHR. The residential care facilities that provide skilled nursing services to their residents are more likely (OR: 1.42; 95% CI: 1.09–1.87) to adopt EHR. Similarly, \\{RCFs\\} with a provision of medication review were also more likely to adopt EHR (OR: 1.40; 95% CI: 1.00–1.95). Among the control variables, facility size, chain affiliation, ownership type, and Medicaid certification were significantly associated with EHR adoption. Conclusions Our findings suggest that service innovations may drive EHR adoption in the \\{RCFs\\} in the United States. This can be viewed as a strategic attempt by \\{RCFs\\} to engage in a new business arrangement with hospitals and other health care organizations, where quality of care and interoperability of patients’ records might play a vital role under the current healthcare reform. Future research could examine the relationship between service innovations and use of different EHR functionality in RCFs.

Health and Health Care, Macroeconomics of  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Macroeconomics can have a measurable impact on health and health care. The aim of this article is to introduce the macroeconomics of health and health care. The article will outline the core features and terms related to macroeconomics, as distinct from microeconomics, and then give an overview of the relationship between the macroeconomy and health and health care. It will thus consider, for example, the relationship between health care expenditure and national income, and provide an overview of the routes through which greater macroeconomic integration at the global level may impact on health and health care via international trade.

Diet Quality and Body Mass Index Are Associated with Health Care Resource Use in Rural Older Adults  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Health care resource consumption is a growing concern. The aim of this study was to examine the associations between diet quality and body mass index with health care resource use (HRU) in a cohort of advanced age. Participants in the Geisinger Rural Aging Study (n=5,993) were mailed demographic and dietary questionnaires in 2009. Of those eligible, 2,995 (50%; 1,267 male, 1,728 female; mean age 81.4±4.4 years) provided completed surveys. Multivariate negative binomial models were used to estimate relative risk and 95% CI of HRU outcomes with diet quality as assessed by the Dietary Screening Tool score and body mass index determined from self-reported height and weight. Poor diet quality was associated with a 20% increased risk for emergency room (ER) visits. Fruit and vegetable consumption was grouped into quintiles of intake, with the highest quintile serving as the reference group in analyses. The three lowest fruit and vegetable quintiles were associated with increased risk for ER visits (23% to 31%); the lowest quintile increased risk for inpatient visits (27%). Obesity increased risk of outpatient visits; however, individuals with class I obesity were less likely than normal-weight individuals to have ER visits (relative risk=0.84; 95% CI 0.70 to 0.99). Diets of greater quality, particularly with greater fruit and vegetable intake, are associated with favorable effects on HRU outcomes among older adults. Overweight and obesity are associated with increased outpatient HRU and, among obese individuals, with decreased ER visits. These findings suggest that BMI and diet quality beyond age 74 years continue to affect HRU measures.

The inequity of informal payments for health care: The case of Hungary  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

As in most countries of Central and Eastern Europe, informal payments have been a characteristic feature of the Hungarian health care system both during and since the demise of Soviet type socialist rule. Although informal payments continue to be so characteristic in the region, little empirical evidence exists on their scope or working. As far as equity is concerned, it has sometimes been suggested that physicians play a ‘Robin Hood’ role and subsidise the poor at the expense of the rich. With the aid of an interview survey of a representative sample of the Hungarian population, we examine the distribution of the burden of informal payments across income groups. Results indicate that informal payments are a highly regressive way of funding health care, with Kakwani progressivity indices of ?0.38, ?0.39, ?0.35 and ?0.36 for GP, outpatient specialist, hospital, and total care, respectively. The finding that people with lower income pay proportionally more for public health care through informal payments underlines the emptiness of the ‘Robin Hood’ claims and the need for reform.

Delayed Time to Defibrillation after In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

...causes of cardiac arrest among adults during a hospitalization are ventricular fibrillation and pulseless ventricular tachycardia from primary electrical disturbances or cardiac ischemia.– In contrast to cardiac arrests due to asystole or pulseless mechanical activity, survival from cardiac arrests... The relationship between time to first defibrillation attempt and success of resuscitation was investigated in a cohort of 6789 patients in the National Registry of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. Patients for whom the time to defibrillation was more than 2 minutes had a significantly reduced likelihood of return of spontaneous circulation, survival to 24 hours, and survival to hospital discharge, as well as poorer neurologic and functional outcomes.

Evaluation of miscellaneous and electronic device energy use in hospitals  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Miscellaneous and electronic loads (MELs) consume about one-third of the primary energy used in US buildings, and their energy use is increasing faster than other end-uses. In healthcare facilities, 30% of the annual electricity was used by MELs in 2008. This paper presents methods and challenges for estimating medical MELs energy consumption along with estimates of energy use in a hospital by combining device-level metered data with inventories and usage information. An important finding is that common, small devices consume large amounts of energy in aggregate and should not be ignored when trying to address hospital energy use.

Hospital registration waiting time reduction through process redesign  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The registration process is the first process that patients interact with hospitals. The quality of experience in registration will form the perceptions for hospitals. The waiting time is an important performance metric for the registration process. In this paper, a rigorous Lean Six Sigma approach is used to analyse an existing registration process and the root causes for the long average waiting time are identified. Lean operation principles are used to redesign the registration process. After the implementation, a drastic reduction in the average waiting time is achieved and sustained.

Parents’ experiences of family functioning, health and social support provided by nurses – A pilot study in paediatric intensive care  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

SummaryObjectives The objective of this study was to describe parents’ experiences of family functioning, health and social support provided by nursing personnel, while their child was in intensive care, and to determine how social support was associated with family functioning and family health. Design Cross-sectional study. Setting The data were collected by a self-administered questionnaire from 31 parents of critically ill children from 2010 to 2011. The data were analysed statistically. Main Outcome Measures The parents considered their family functioning, health and social support provided by the nursing personnel to be good. Results The sub-area of family functioning that rated the lowest was strengths of family, whereas the lowest rated sub-area of family health was ill-being. Child's previous hospital treatments were associated with family health. Parents, whose child had already been in hospital care, reported more well-being and less ill-being than parents with children hospitalised for the first time. Parents’ education was associated with family functioning, family health and social support given by the nurses. Weak positive correlation was also found between social support given by nurses and family health experienced by parents. Conclusion There is a need to discuss how nursing care can further support parental resources.

Advertising Health Care: Causes and Consequences  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract An overview and a discussion of the key research and policy issues related to advertising in health care markets are presented in this article. Based on the two workhorse models of advertising from the economics literature – informative and persuasive advertising – the main effects of advertising in terms of market outcomes (quantity, price, quality, and entry) are discussed. The overview concentrates on discussing advertising of health care providers and advertising of prescription drugs, which are treated separately. The discussion provides tentative policy implications with respect to the social benefits and costs of advertising in health care markets.

Older people's experiences of medicine changes on leaving hospital  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractBackground Few qualitative studies have explored older patients' perspectives on medicine changes that resulted from a stay in hospital. Objective To explore how older people aged ?75 years, who had recently been discharged from hospital to their own home, understood and managed any changes to their medicines. Methods Forty people aged ?75 years were recruited from two internal medicine wards. Participants were included if they took four or more prescription medicines at admission, experienced a medicine change and were discharged to their own home. Participants were interviewed in person at home. Interviews were semi-structured and were recorded, transcribed verbatim, coded using NVivo, and analyzed thematically. Results Participants experienced a median of four medicine changes per person and sixteen participants were unaware of the exact changes and the reasons for them. Some participants had concerns about their medicine changes. Twenty-nine participants could not recall anyone talking about their medicine changes just prior to them being discharged. The majority of participants trusted the decisions the hospital doctors made regarding their medicines and many participants spoke as if it was not their place to question doctors about their medicines. Conclusion Clear and understandable explanations of medicine changes are needed for older people on discharge from hospital. Health professionals should also be aware that older patients might not think it is acceptable for them to ask direct questions of staff members.

Resistencia de Staphylococcus aureus a los antibióticos en un hospital de la orinoquia colombiana  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

ResumenIntroducción El objetivo de este estudio de cohorte retrospectivo fue analizar la resistencia de Staphylococcus aureus a los antibióticos en el Hospital Departamental de Villavicencio, centro de mediana y alta complejidad, entre 2005 y 2009. Materiales y métodos Se analizaron los resultados de los estudios microbiológicos de los pacientes con cultivo positivo para S. aureus. No se hizo ninguna intervención. La variable de estudio fue la resistencia a la meticilina y el desenlace, la resistencia a los antimicrobianos. Resultados Se tamizaron 29.451 estudios de microbiología y se encontraron 976 aislamientos de S. aureus, los cuales se analizaron para determinar su resistencia a los antibióticos por el método de microdilución en caldo. El 49,6% de ellos (484) fueron clasificados como resistentes a la meticilina; se encontró un mayor grado de resistencia múltiple, especialmente para gentamicina (25,0% Vs. 2,9%), ciprofloxacina (25,1% Vs.2,4%), clindamicina (29,4% Vs.4,1%) y eritromicina (31,0% Vs.1,7%), y menor, para trimetoprim/sulfametoxazol (11,8% Vs.4,1%). Aunque era de esperarse que la resistencia simultánea para la vancomicina fuera muy baja, se encontraron algunas cepas intermedias y resistentes, pero este resultado no se puede analizar adecuadamente debido a que estas cepas no se remitieron a un laboratorio de referencia para pruebas de confirmación. La resistencia a la tetraciclina, aun en las cepas sensibles a la meticilina, fue alta. No se identificó ninguna cepa resistente al linezolid. No se realizaron estudios para evaluar la resistencia a la tigeciclina. Conclusiones La resistencia de S. aureus a la meticilina es frecuente también en esta institución hospitalaria de la orinoquia co lombiana. La resistencia múltiple es mayor en S. aureus resistente a la meticilina, especialmente a la gentamicina, la ciprofloxacina y la clindamicina. Cuando S. aureus es sensible a la meticilina, también se observa un alto grado de sensibilidad a estos antibióticos. Los hallazgos de sensibilidad a la ciprofloxacina y a la clindamicina en presencia de resistencia a la meticilina, sugieren la posibilidad de cepas asociadas a la comunidad en Villavicencio, al igual que en otras ciudades de Colombia, lo cual amerita estudios posteriores para confirmarlo. AbstractObjective Analyze the antimicrobial resistance patterns of Staphylococcus aureus at a hospital in Villavicencio, Colombia from 2005 to 2009. Design Retrospective cohort study Setting : Villavicencio Departamental Hospital, a second and third level care center Target population: Patients’ microbiological records showing positive strains for S. aureus were analyzed. Interventions None Variable Methicillin resistance Outcomes Antimicrobial resistance Results Nine hundred and seventy six strains of S. aureus were isolated from 29,451 microbiological screened samples, and their antimicrobial resistance pattern was analyzed by standard micro-dilution broth tests. 49.6% strains were resistant to methicillin, and their co-resistance was higher mainly to gentamycin (25%), ciprofloxacin (25.1%), clindamycin (29.4%) and erythromycin (31.0), but lower to trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (11.8%). Although co-resistance to vancomycin was supposed to be low, some intermediate range and resistant isolates were found, but this statement cannot be established because they were not confirmed at a referenced laboratory. Tetracycline resistance was high even for methicillin sensitive stains. No resistance to linezolid was identified. Resistance to tigecycline was not evaluated. Conclusions S. aureus resistance to methicillin is also common at the target hospital in the Colombian Orinoco region. Co-resistance is higher particularly to gentamycin, ciprofloxacin and clindamycin in methicillin resistant strains. High sensitivity to these antimicrobials is evidenced when S. aureus is also sensitive to methicillin. Some findings related to sensitivity to ciprofloxacin and clindamycin in the presence of methicillin resistance suggest the possibility of community-associated stra

The Affordable Care Act, health care reform, prescription drug formularies and utilization management tools  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Summary The U.S. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (hence, Affordable Care Act, or ACA) was signed into law on March 23, 2010. Goals of the ACA include decreasing the number of uninsured people, controlling cost and spending on health care, increasing the quality of care provided, and increasing insurance coverage benefits. This manuscript focuses on how the ACA affects pharmacy benefit managers and consumers when they have prescriptions dispensed. \\{PBMs\\} use formularies and utilization control tools to steer drug usage toward cost-effective and efficacious agents. A logic model was developed to explain the effects of the new legislation. The model draws from peer-reviewed and gray literature commentary about current and future U.S. healthcare reform. Outcomes were identified as desired and undesired effects, and expected unintended consequences. The ACA extends health insurance benefits to almost 32 million people and provides financial assistance to those up to 400% of the poverty level. Increased access to care leads to a similar increase in overall health care demand and usage. This short-term increase is projected to decrease downstream spending on disease treatment and stunt the continued growth of health care costs, but may unintentionally exacerbate the current primary care physician shortage. The ACA eliminates limitations on insurance and increases the scope of benefits. Online health care insurance exchanges give patients a central location with multiple insurance options. Problems with prescription drug affordability and control utilization tools used by \\{PBMs\\} were not addressed by the ACA. Improving communication within the U.S. healthcare system either by innovative health care delivery models or increased usage of health information technology will help alleviate problems of health care spending and affordability.

The role of foot self-care behavior on developing foot ulcers in diabetic patients with peripheral neuropathy: A prospective study  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractBackground Although foot self-care behavior is viewed as beneficial for the prevention of diabetic foot ulceration, the effect of foot self-care behavior on the development of diabetic foot ulcer has received little empirical investigation. Objective To explore the relationship between foot self-care practice and the development of diabetic foot ulcers among diabetic neuropathy patients in northern Taiwan. Methods A longitudinal study was conducted at one medical center and one teaching hospital in northern Taiwan. Participants A total of 295 diabetic patients who lacked sensitivity to a monofilament were recruited. Five subjects did not provide follow-up data; thus, only the data of 290 subjects were analyzed. The mean age was 67.0 years, and 72.1% had six or fewer years of education. Methods Data were collected by a modified version of the physical assessment portion of the Michigan Neuropathy Screening Instrument and the Diabetes Foot Self-Care Behavior Scale. Cox regression was used to analyze the predictive power of foot self-care behaviors. Results A total of 29.3% (n = 85) of diabetic neuropathy patients developed a diabetic foot ulcer by the one-year follow-up. The total score on the Diabetes Foot Self-Care Behavior Scale was significantly associated with the risk of developing foot ulcers (HR = 1.04, 95% CI = 1.01–1.07, p = 0.004). After controlling for the demographic variables and the number of diabetic foot ulcer hospitalizations, however, the effect was non-significant (HR = 1.03, 95% CI = 1.00–1.06, p = 0.061). Among the foot self-care behaviors, lotion-applying behavior was the only variable that significantly predicted the occurrence of diabetic foot ulcer, even after controlling for demographic variables and diabetic foot ulcer predictors (neuropathy severity, number of diabetic foot ulcer hospitalizations, insulin treatment, and peripheral vascular disease; HR = 1.19, 95% CI = 1.04–1.36, p = 0.012). Conclusions Among patients with diabetic neuropathy, foot self-care practice may be insufficient to prevent the occurrence of diabetic foot ulcer. Instead, lotion-applying behavior predicted the occurrence of diabetic foot ulcers in diabetic patients with neuropathy. Further studies are needed to explore the mechanism of lotion-applying behavior as it relates to the occurrence of diabetic foot ulcer.

Association of Discharge Home with Home Health Care and 30-Day Readmission after Pancreatectomy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Background We sought to determine if discharge home with home health care (HHC) is an independent predictor of increased readmission after pancreatectomy. Study Design We examined 30-day readmissions in patients undergoing pancreatectomy using the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project State Inpatient Database for California from 2009 to 2011. Readmissions were categorized as severe or nonsevere using the Modified Accordion Severity Grading System. Multivariable logistic regression models were used to examine the association of discharge home with HHC and 30-day readmission using discharge home without HHC as the reference group. Propensity score matching was used as an additional analysis to compare the rate of 30-day readmission between patients discharged home with HHC with patients discharged home without HHC. Results Of 3,573 patients who underwent pancreatectomy, 752 (21.0%) were readmitted within 30 days of discharge. In a multivariable logistic regression model, discharge home with HHC was an independent predictor of increased 30-day readmission (odds ratio = 1.37; 95% CI, 1.11–1.69; p = 0.004). Using propensity score matching, patients who received HHC had a significantly increased rate of 30-day readmission compared with patients discharged home without HHC (24.3% vs 19.8%; p < 0.001). Patients discharged home with HHC had a significantly increased rate of nonsevere readmission compared with those discharged home without HHC, by univariate comparison (19.2% vs 13.9%; p < 0.001), but not severe readmission (6.4% vs 4.7%; p = 0.08). In multivariable logistic regression models, excluding patients discharged to facilities, discharge home with HHC was an independent predictor of increased nonsevere readmissions (odds ratio = 1.41; 95% CI, 1.11–1.79; p = 0.005), but not severe readmissions (odds ratio = 1.31; 95% CI, 0.88–1.93; p = 0.18). Conclusions Discharge home with HHC after pancreatectomy is an independent predictor of increased 30-day readmission; specifically, these services are associated with increased nonsevere readmissions, but not severe readmissions.

The APP strategies selected in SCM of the hospital  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper uses a real case study of Taiwan's Middle Alliance of Department of Health (TMADH) to explore the selection of suitable aggregate production planning (APP) strategies in hospital supply chain management (SCM). A simulation method was used to simulate the six different APP's strategies to further evaluate the results of multiple objectives, including total cost (TC), average service level (SL) and average changes in production rate (PR). This paper uses the TOPSIS and fuzzy linguistic methods to compare the different weights of different objectives to obtain the optimal APP strategy selection sequence for decision-makers in hospital SCM. The results of this study show that decision-makers only need to apply historical data in APP strategy planning to obtain the superior solution; in other words, decreasing the complexity of the decision process in selecting an APP strategy and SCM production policy which is the primary contribution of this paper.

Health and Health Care, Need for  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In this article the authors critically examine what it means to be in need of either health or health care. The authors start by considering different definitions of health and reasons for valuing health. In light of their answers to these questions the authors consider the notion of a baseline of health against which health need should be measured, and suggest that this baseline should be specified in terms of a sufficient rather than a maximally attainable level of health achievement. The authors then look at three different concepts of health care need and how needs would be ranked for the purpose of health care rationing on each of these three conceptions. It is concluded that ‘distribution according to need’ names a general approach to health policy rather than a specific principle of distribution.

A brief review of the recent empirical literature next describes the range of current practices. Finally, a representative example of health care demand is developed to illustrate the selection, use, and interpretation of empirical determinants.

CARES Helps Explain Secondary Organic Aerosols  

ScienceCinema (OSTI)

What happens when urban man-made pollution mixes with what we think of as pristine forest air? To know more about what this interaction means for the climate, the Carbonaceous Aerosol and Radiative Effects Study, or CARES, field campaign was designed in 2010. The sampling strategy during CARES was coordinated with CalNex 2010, another major field campaign that was planned in California in 2010 by the California Air Resources Board (CARB), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the California Energy Commission (CEC). "We found two things. When urban pollution mixes with forest pollutions we get more secondary organic aerosols," said Rahul Zaveri, FCSD scientist and project lead on CARES. "SOAs are thought to be formed primarily from forest emissions but only when they interact with urban emissions. The data is saying that there will be climate cooling over the central California valley because of these interactions." Knowledge gained from detailed analyses of data gathered during the CARES campaign, together with laboratory experiments, is being used to improve existing climate models.

Antitrust Enforcement in Health Care — Controlling Costs, Improving Quality  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The success of health care reform in the United States depends on the proper functioning of our market-based health care system. Antitrust laws play a crucial role in ensuring that consumers benefit from robust market competition. In health care, as in other sectors, competition leads to lower costs... Merger activity among health care providers has been accelerating, and left unchecked, consolidation risks undermining some of the key objectives of health care reform. The Federal Trade Commission aims to ensure that health care provider markets remain competitive.

Contribution of floor treatment characteristics to background noise levels in health care facilities, Part 1  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Acoustical tests were conducted on five types of commercial-grade flooring to assess their potential contribution to noise generated within health care facilities outside of patient rooms. The floor types include sheet vinyl (with and without a 5 mm rubber backing) virgin rubber (with and without a 5 mm rubber backing) and a rubber-backed commercial grade carpet for comparison. The types of acoustical tests conducted were ISO-3741 compliant sound power level testing (using two source types: a tapping machine to simulate footfalls and a rolling hospital cart) and sound absorption testing as per ASTM-C423. Among the non-carpet samples the material type that produced the least sound power was determined to be the rubber-backed sheet vinyl. While both 5 mm-backed samples showed a significant difference compared to their un-backed counterparts with both source types the rubber-backed sheet vinyl performed slightly better than the rubber-backed virgin rubber in the higher frequency bands in both tests. The performance and suitability of these flooring materials in a health care facility compared to commercial carpeting will be discussed. [Work supported by Paul S. Veneklasen Research Foundation.

Models of care that have reduced maternal mortality and morbidity in Sri Lanka  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Sri Lanka, a non-industrialized country with limited resources, has been able to achieve a maternal mortality ratio that is markedly lower than the ratios of similar countries. Many factors have contributed to Sri Lanka's success story. A political commitment to the cause and implementation of clear policies through well-structured and organized community-based and institutional healthcare services—expanded to cover the whole country and provided free of charge—have been the foundation of maternal and child health (MCH) services in the country. The healthcare programs have been well accepted and utilized by the people as the literacy rate is more than 90% for both men and women. Public health midwives form the backbone of MCH services and provide frontline reproductive health care. More than 98% of deliveries occur in hospitals and are attended by midwives. Furthermore, 85% of women in Sri Lanka deliver in facilities served by specialist obstetricians/gynecologists. The Sri Lanka College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists plays a leading role by assisting the Family Health Bureau in making policies and guidelines, training staff, and acting as team leaders for maternity care services. This was evident after the tsunami in December 2004. National maternal mortality reviews, monitoring and evaluation of MCH activities, and relatively high contraceptive prevalence rates have also contributed to the success in Sri Lanka, which could serve as a model for other countries.

Physician payments under health care reform  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This study examines the impact of major health insurance reform on payments made in the health care sector. We study the prices of services paid to physicians in the privately insured market during the Massachusetts health care reform. The reform increased the number of insured individuals as well as introduced an online marketplace where insurers compete. We estimate that, over the reform period, physician payments increased at least 11 percentage points relative to control areas. Payment increases began around the time legislation passed the House and Senate—the period in which their was a high probability of the bill eventually becoming law. This result is consistent with fixed-duration payment contracts being negotiated in anticipation of future demand and competition.
